Can you let me know what Edition of Windows 7 is on your sons laptop. Also whether it is the 32 or 64bit version. Finally can you advise whether it has Service Pack 1 installed?

Could you clickt on the start bubble then right click on Computer and click properties.
Could you then advise what it says under "Windows edition"?
Did following PaulMcD's advice resolve your issue?

Underneath Windows edition it says Windows 7 home premium and something about copyright but no mention of anything else.I sent Paul a pm regarding the download issues we've been having since vms started playing up.Hope this helps.

1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update.
2. In the left pane, click Check for updates, and then wait while Windows looks for the latest updates for your computer.
3. If you see a message telling you that important updates are available, or telling you to review important updates, click the message to view and select the important updates to install.
4. In the list, click the important updates for more information. Select the check boxes for any updates that you want to install, and then click OK.
5. Click Install updates.
Read and accept the license terms, and then click Finish if the update requires it. Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Some updates might require that you restart your computer to finish installing. Save and close all your programs before restarting to prevent data loss.
