My Apple iWatch **UPDATE**

Apple replaced my watch with a new one (1st Gen) for free under the quality program.

Thanks Apple

I have the Apple iWatch, version 1, bought it June 2015, my battery has swollen up and pushed the glass face off. Seems Apple may have a battery issue too. I am four months out of warranty, I take it to the Apple Store Tuesday, lets see what they say. I feel this should be covered by Apple. Battery issues like this should not be a one year deal when they are not easily replaceable.

Let see what Apple does...

Windows 7 stops updating

UPDATE **2017**

Fixed another one of these, here is what I did
at the run command -> services.msc
turn off windows update service
delete everything in the c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\
restart service
click windows update and wait to see what happens

I ran into this problem a few times so I will document how I fixed it

I manually downloaded the Windows6.1-KB3135445-X64 updated and Internet Explorer 11, Install IE first then the update, Rebooted the machine and click on Windows update.

It tool about 8 minutes for it to sync up but I got 245 new updates. Was going to post the link to the update but Microsoft seems to change things so just google it and make sure you are getting it from Microsoft site.
