I want to re-install Win7 on my laptop which is old. I got it just as Win7 just came out.
I bought a new SSD and would like to reinstall the whole O/S rather than just cloning it as, I thought a clean install and “start over” would be nice, as thorugh the years I’ve accumulated “junk” on the old hard drive.
So here is my question: If I reinstall Win7 then of course, it will install and then the Windows Update will take over and make me install updates, then the computer will restart and it will install and do more updates and the cycle will repeat a lot.
Is there any sort of cumulative Win7 update or patch that will have all the updates in one place, so I can just download than and update the entire Win7 in one shot, rather than go through the constant updates.
I have Win10 on another computer and it’s OK but I’m not that fond of it, besides some of my games will not play on Win10, so I’d rather not upgrade this computer.
