    So, without a stable internet connection, I have disabled Automatic Windows Update, and have missed out on a couple of the most recent updates (Nearly every single one since 2013). Recently, I tried to download and install all but the optional updates, but ran into a problem. Other than the fact that the update took forever (until I canceled it seeing that I couldn't use my computer during the process) Windows told me that it was low on memory. Everything either completely stopped or slowed to a crawl and it was impossible to do anything. "Just let it sit for a couple of days and it will be fine!" I thought. No. It wasn't fine. It was still stuck on that error saying that I was low on memory! With Windows not responding, I only had one choice. I restarted my computer and tried to restart the update process. The same exact thing happened. I did have an extremely stable connection during that time, but I don't now. Any thoughts?

    System Specs:
    Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
    4GB RAM
    Intel Core i3 CPU at 2.4GHz
    HP G62 Notebook PC

    Thanks kemical! I'll be sure to check it out if this update doesn't give up like the last two.
