I’m just now building a USB key with the installation on it and will try to repair it with that. Any other advice is more than welcome!
Shell March 23, pm. Amanda March 23, am. Well here we are again in update hell. After about a month of hoping that Microsoft might actually fix something, the temporary hold their tech people put on my computer must have ran out.
I’ve already tried all of the above before without success, and honestly, I’m about to just do a complete reinstall if I can’t get it to work. Between health issues with my parents, and moving, this is the last thing I need to deal with…again. Finally done it today been trying to update since Jan. I try rename trendmicro folder to trendmicro, turn off firewall n all antivirus programs, prepared 2 standing fans to prevent overheat old laptop , 15hrs waits for updating…. I don’t even get the chance to get it to download as I get another message saying that I need to delete a number of folders in my Storage space.
When I went in, they had check marks alongside of what should be deleted so once I deleted it and rebooted, still had the same problem. I do not trust any of the work arounds they are asking you to do…. I don’t do anything fancy on my lap so have no idea why all of these issues are coming up.
I understand another version should be coming out by the end of March Wonder if you can download that without having the other versions already installed. Michael Goodman March 15, pm. JaceCar March 13, am. I’ve tried all of these methods and more with no success. When I turn off services clean boot and attempt the update, the update assistant goes through the motions then reboots… without even attempting to do the install.
Even after restoring services, it just reboots. Someone mentioned an SSD. I’m running on a gb with approx 80gb free. Is that a known problem? DH March 12, pm. Rodc March 12, pm. Download and install took 25 hours to download and install. RB March 8, pm. I removed as many things as I could from my desktop sound card, usb 3. Muhammad Aslam December 28, pm. Hi, I wonder after removing Mouse and Keybaord how I will be able to navigate to settings.
Rens March 10, pm. DJ March 6, pm. Tried all of this and finally had to do a recovery reset and that worked had to re-install programs afterward. What a time suck over the past several months. Abbi March 6, pm. After upgrading windows with the latest update media creation tool and it reinstalls whole windows 10 the issue was fixed!
Good luck. I have windows I’ve tried to ask Microsoft and always no answer from them. I am by no means a computer geek, etc. Claus March 2, am. I got the same issues here on several machines in our domain. Updates done so far: 0. Not even a reporting to the WSUS. Since those PCs cannot access the internet and only download those updats from WSUS, most of the solutions above also won’t work. GS March 6, am. None of the above worked for me, but after some failed updates Windows mentioned an error code that linked to my graphics card driver.
When I did a clean install of this driver the update finally worked. Thanks for this extensive post, it really helped me! RM March 8, am. I have found that most of the time, the update fails because of a driver issue. I’ve done several 20 failures so far, and all had an issue with at least one driver. The indicator is in the txt file generated by the update cycle and rollback. The video failure will also flash a momentary message across the screen when the update hits the wall and initiates a roll back.
I now have a string of successfully completed updated machines. Joe Meree February 27, am. To fix this I did all this and it didn’t work. Then: 1. Go here and get the fall creator update click update now and download it 7. Srboljub March 3, am. After so many attempts I did this and it worked. Performed clean windows start find how to do clean windows start 3.
Then I pressed “check for updates” and finally finished. Restored normal windows start undo what I did in line 2.
John February 23, pm. None of these did it for me. I have 2 Lenovo T one running Home, the other Pro. The pro updated fine. Seems no matter how many different “solutions” from various forums I try I end up the same. After download and restart I see a minimal amount of disk activity, then the system just sits there.
It could be 2,3,4,12 hrs. I’ve repeated this for 3 days. After a forced shutdown and restart it reverts back to the old version, reporting the update wasn’t completed with error 0x I ran “solutions” specific to that error code with no help as well.
I’ve run the Windows update troubleshooter with no help. Truely frustrating. Jules February 19, pm. Bob February 19, am. Unfortunately none of these methods worked, but Thank you I think they helped me resolve the issue. Whilst downloading the update manually, I found a troubleshooting tool. The update failed, ran SFC and Dism, the update still failed.
Just before doing a reinstall I decided to shutdown all Defender services and firewall and then tried the update and it worked. I haven’t tried on another device, yet, but I hope this help others. Dennis February 19, am. Windows tried to install the update 59 times going by the update history, with your help i think its finally done. Thanks so much…. J February 12, pm. I’ve now gotten to the point where I am disabling the update altogether Method 6 however, after a couple of days, Ill find that it has re-enabled itself and the download process begins all over again.
Is this just for me? Is there a solution? DiamondDave October 3, am. I’ve had the exact same problem. Then a few days later it re-enables itself and I get a blue box appear in the middle of my screen telling me “Can’t download updates”…etc…etc. Kroxo February 10, pm. I’ve got “Issue 2” on two computers, both purchased before I tried steps , nothing worked. I finally disabled the update step 6 and purchased new hardware. The old computers are new dedicated video servers for my TVs.
Kroxo: Try to repair Windows 10 with an in-place upgrade method 5 and additionally see this comprehensive guide to fix Windows 10 update problems. Amanda February 4, am. I wish I could say for sure which, but after attempting Method 2, 3 and then 4 without success on their own, I went back and did Method 1 all the way through 4…at first it didn’t seem like even that would work.
This time however, after booting up again, when I open Windows Update…my system says it’s up to date. I even reloaded it to make sure. Here’s hoping it stays that way, because honestly that was the most frustrating experience I’ve had with a PC in a long time.
Amanda February 5, am. Well, unfortunately a few hours later it’s now telling me I need to update again. At this point, I’m so frustrated that I’m about to just do a reinstall. I’m currently backing up all of my personal files, as well as my games, and I’m going to give the above methods one more shot before reinstalling.
Here’s hoping one more shot works…. Tim January 29, pm. Jim Webber January 28, pm. Microsoft has now become much more aggressive at pushing this update. It starts to download and install soon after you logon. If it the fails to install properly, it tries again next day. Since it downloads the update from scratch each time, you quickly use up a lot of your monthly bandwidth.
After numerous attempts at applying fixes, disabling anti-virus etc I am giving up and have disabled the Windows Update. CyberWarrior January 28, pm. I have googled this and none of these fixes worked for me and I tried them all.
The only thing that worked was reformatting. My computer is now all up t date and running perfectly. Virginia January 28, am. I have noticed that the update has a lot of issues with older Intel chipsets. A quick check on Intel’s site can prevent a lot of issues. You are likely good if there are Windows 10 drivers, if not.
I tried method 2 after uninstalling anti malware and removing all USB connections and running the troubleshoot windows update. It ran slowly but got there eventually. This was the 6th time I had tried it but the advice I got here helped enormously.
Bob Herring January 24, pm. Thanks so much. I was determined to fix it myself so thx. John D January 24, am. Why doesn’t Microsoft fix this? That is, 1 do a new update that does not cause all these problems but does give the same or better security, and does not have the supergraphics stuff that most people don’t need, and 2 give us a tool to make Win10 stop trying to install every day! Every day, it slows down and interferes with using the computer! I know, MS should have fixed this months ago?
I had the same problem and tried everything and nothing worked. I finally decided to reformat and now everything is updated and working fine. Vasilis January 13, pm. I tried to install this update a couple of times but it didn t work…. I m using my pc at home to run some music programms and for gaming so i didn t care much….. Yesterday I decided to install a copy of windows 10 again because time was right to format my pc….. I found this page and thought to give one solution a try and if it didn t work i couldn t care less.
I tried the first one and it worked right away…… I m writting here so that a feedback of your work can be known……. Thanks for your help…..!!!! Jim A January 13, am. None of these methods worked for me. Four days i read on internet and tested different methods. Then i mounted the image right click on Windows. In 45 minutes my system was updated without lost of data at installation point when you are asked to choose to keep my files or clean install i choose to keep my files.
The pc restarted few times. Now is working fine. Escuse me for spell. January 19, am. After at least 7 attempts I changed my outdated graphics card and then followed the steps above by Jim A, worked for me… Thanks. Clint January 23, pm. Bill Harroff January 13, am. I have tried more than 30x to update to Windows 10, version since early December. I have run the various troubleshooting apps that come with Windows. I have also tried the “top 5” fixes listed here.
None have helped. I do not currently run any other virus detection software that conflicts; just Windows Defender. I’ve also started using the ethernet connection directly into our router. Retired computer tech January 25, am. Do you have an ssd drive? If so you might need to use partition wizard tool to increase the size of the windows system reserve partition to at least MB. Then download the upgrade assistant, run it, and select copy to flash drive for installation on another computer.
You will use this disk to install the new version. First, use belarc advisor to print a copy of your computer settings. This also includes any software licenses you may need later to reinstall programs that may no longer work properly.
Larry January 9, am. Getting rid of my corrupted software distribution subdirectory files is what I had to do. IMHO one should never have to uninstall the antivirus program or any other security program from your system to apply a legitimate fix from a legitimate company. Doing what you suggest as step 1 opens oneself up to a lot of exposure as one continues to explore what other steps to take by following links — some of which may be sketchy!
Ken January 8, pm. After weeks of doing nothing on my computer except for trying to update, it seems as if method 1 is working. Finally got to downloading updates stage and seems to be moving quickly. Thanks for the article! I’ll report back after the installation. TL February 16, pm. Sandra Smith January 7, pm. My issue with the update is that I used to have Symantec Endpoint Protection. When Windows 10 came out, I installed it with no issues. My family tech genius, and he really is a genius in a director position at a major university, said Windows Defender is as good as any other antivirus program he said they were all crap anyway , so I uninstalled Symantec and chose to use Windows Defender.
Everything was going well until the update came out. I got the message that I needed to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection, but it had already been uninstalled I checked my program list in the control panel to be sure. Since I had no luck, I had our family genius come out, and he worked for quite a while doing his thing, and said that evidently there was some kind of hook still on my computer and he was going to see if one of his people had a link to send him that might solve the issue.
However, he is so busy, he has not had a chance to make it back to work on it again. This has been going on for weeks, since the update came out, and I am ready to scream. Is there a remedy? Chris January 9, am. I use Revo Uninstaller. It does a complete uninstall of the files left behind after deleting programs. Sandra Smith January 15, am. Chris: Thanks for trying to help.
Not wanting to waste my money downloading something that might not work, I tried downloading the free version of Revo Uninstaller. However, because Symantec Endpoint Protection no longer appears in the control panel list of programs since I deleted it months ago, it doesn’t appear on the list of possible uninstalls using Revo. Therefore there is no way to get to whatever it is that’s left and causing the problem.
However, Symantec was installed on my computer by the family genius who tried to help me out, and I don’t have the number that CleanWipe requires to be able to download. I think after reading the two replies to my question, I’ll have to wait for the genius to get back to me whenever he finds time. Sandra Smith: You don’t need a serial number.
Click at the right side on the page, at “Download Files” and then just download and then run CleanWipe. On my , HP G60 Notebook laptop, after a successful download of Feature Update Win10, version , when my laptop automatically restarted took about 2 hours ; then automatically my usual “User” Sign in screen opened. I am the only User. The initial User sign in password has never been changed.
With no possible method to reset one’s password—basically one is locked out from their own computer! In so doing, the computer does NOT follow standard shut down protocol. A solid blue screen will appear with white dots in the center spinning clockwise. This continues for about 5 minutes. The computer is completing its “restart. And yes, the update has been installed. Pavel January 5, am. None of the methods worked. But I kept trying. Disabled all services from other software.
Disabled everything in Device Manager that was possible to disable except network. Disabled Windows Update Service. Removed SoftwareDistribution folder completely. Finally, with the separately downloaded Windows 10 Windows Assistant it made it through and now after about a week of trying I am happy with ver. Running on Asus XM. Awful stuff! Oh, and BTW. I had disabled it before the successful install.
But now, if I enable this again, Windows fails to boot, crashing with some “Stop message”, complaining about some surprising IRQ levels… When I disable it again, it runs smooth again.
Fortunately, I do not need this feature currently, but I might need it soon. Suzan Martin January 2, am. Just worked on another laptop with failed update Failed multiple times over the last month.
After update initialized and appears to install with restart required, and upon logon to Windows the screen would go black. No display. Attempted the install multiple times with same result. To fix this I used “method 1” above. At this point I could logon to Windows normally.
After that Deleted the Window SoftwareDistribution folder as detailed in “method 1”. Restart again. Change Windows Update Service back to automatic. Following the steps for “method 1” to a T. Be sure to restart as instructed. I used this fix now on 4 laptops and 1 all-in-one successfully. Good luck to those having this problem. And thank you Wintips. Nick Wilkinson December 28, pm. Neil December 31, am. Worked the steps, then ended up doing a “In Place” Windows 10 refresh.
Wasted too much time on this “update”. Next time, at the first sign of trouble, I will just slap in a new drive and start fresh. Chris Luck December 24, am. F microsoft! Spent 2 freaking day’s trying to update to on a clean install I bought. I’m disabling updates then see if they will fix. If not here I come MAC!!!! An Oldfart December 24, pm. Hi Chris, What kind of setup do you have?
Mine is dual boot and seperate partitions for Data 1 and general downloads 1. Jhet14 December 21, pm. Method 1 worked!
Sir thank you so much for the knowledge. You are very helpful for millions of people seeking help. More powers! Keep going! Maybe you don’t realize it but you’re one of the best! Scott Davis December 20, pm. To hell with Microsoft.
If they can’t make an update that installs, my machine will just stay in its current configuration forever.
I’m happy with my Windows 10 and really don’t feel like spending a day on my computer to maybe get this fixed. Computer runs fine, I guess I’ll miss some new bloatware and features that I’ll never use, but I can live with that. JeffWld March 19, am. No update should require users to jump through endless hoops to install. Microsoft’s pathetic performance is unacceptable in this current day and age when updates should be painless based on decades of supposed improvements.
Sorry Microsoft, your useless update has been permanently blocked. John Tabor December 17, pm. I had the problem described in Issue 2 above on an Acer Inspire laptop, which is about five years old and fairly slow, but still an asset.
It needs to be run using The Administrator option. I have found this tool most useful. Ever since it has been available it has solved all my Windows update problems on our Desktop PC and three laptops. It is worth trying this first. We have Norton Security on all our machines and have never had to disable autoprotect or the firewall to install any Windows updates.
