Failure to configure windows updates, reverting changes


  • For a few months now my computer keeps stalling upon the restart after downloading and installing the windows update. I've tried using the update repair tool, etc. Nothing fixes it. It still installs the updates when i shut down and when I restart, it always stops at 35% while configuring windows and then reverts the changes after failing.

    I'm using an HP pavilion entertainment dv4 laptop with 64bit windows 7.

    Here is a link to my CBS.log file if it helps, I don't know how to read it to find the error causing the update to fail.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the post!

    Based on your CBC.log, there are many update failed messages.

    And there are some Error here:

    Please check the Windows Modules Installer services.

    Click Start, input services.msc, then press ENTER key.

    On the right pane, double-click the service Windows Modules Installer services, set the Startup to "Automatic".

    Now restart the computer.

  • It's still failing at 35% even after setting the windows modules service to automatic.

    Here is the latest CBS.log after the restart.

  • I had this problem also with 4 updates that were "unsuccessful", tried many times and gave same message- Failure to configure....

    This is what I did and it worked for me:

    In Windows Update screen, put check mark on only one update and do it one at a time (some will ask to reboot, just follow as if it was one update), then continue with other updates one at a time. It should work

  • this wat i make of the error's Zar 

    The 0x80004005 Error is the result of a program or user attempting to carry out an action that it lacks the required permissions

    try loging as admin then run updates again if that dont help you then you can always hide them to stop them from being installed everytime you restart computer go to windows updates window on computer veiw the updates then right click each one thats giving problem it will give you option to hide them click it for each one then they will not get added to the update list till you find answer for microsoft ok hope this helps with your issus
