Failure to configure updates, reverting changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I seem to have the same problem as many others, the configuration fails at startup, changes are reverted, updates are installed again when switching off and configuration fails at startup and so on. What can I do to overcome this problem?

  • Hello,

    try to:

    • Disable all security softwares and try again
    • run chkdsk /r /f and sfc /scannow
    • Download and install the System Update Readiness tool: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
    • Reset Windows Update Components

    If this does not solve your problem, perform a repair install of your OS.

  • Hi

    Before following your advice above I checked the update history and compared it with installed updates. I found 7 updates that had failed anumber of times but 6 of them were actually also listed among installed updates!

    I uninstalled the 6 "installed" updates (KB982018, KB2492386, KB2522422, KB2515325, KB973685 and KB2534366) and run windows update "manually". Problem solved!
