Updates :: Windows Will Not Update Darn Near Anything After A Refresh

Feb 5, 2014

so about a month ago I needed to do a refresh on my Asus Laptop which had Windows 8.1 (64bit). I bought this computer back in September of 2013. It was a simple refresh that saved my files and such. The reason I had to refresh was for some odd unknown reason, League of Legends would not go to the login screen, as it would fail. I tried everything to fix that problem, and nothing worked. So, I did a refresh.

Now, I have Windows 8, and my updates wont install at all. I have tried to do a windows update repair and it doesn't fix all the problems, tried to do a clean boot install. Nothing works as of right now. My computer restarts every 2 days and fails.

"Failed Configuring Windows Updates - Reverting Changes" < something of that sort. Every time. I checked if any of the windows updates have gone through, and almost all of them have not.

Updates :: Windows Update Stuck At 0% And Post-refresh Lag

Aug 9, 2014

I had my notebook for about 7 months and it has worked fine for me. It's an hP winter blue with 4gb of ram. Today I force shut down the laptop, which I've done many times before, but this time it wouldn't reboot properly. So I had to refresh my PC. When it refreshed I noticed that it was EXTREMELY buggy and laggy and slow. Like it take 3-4 minutes to open a program or to close a window. I tried to update to windows 8.1 but it said I had to update my current windows. There's 102 updates but it stays at 0%....

Updates :: Refresh Using Windows Advanced Startup Settings - Failure To Configure Update

Jul 28, 2014

My Dell Inspiron 3520 was going quite slow for unknown reasons so I decided to 'refresh' it using Windows advanced start-up setting. Since that time I have been unable to install Windows updates. Well, I can 'install' them, but they won't 'configure'. Once installed and 'configured' 100% I get this error message advising following reboot : "Failure to configure updates. Reverting changes". The laptop then stays paralysed on that screen.

This only started to happen AFTER I "refreshed" my laptop, which was running Windows 8.1 pretty-much problem-free, though a bit slowly, until a week ago. For now I have found a temporary 'fix' by disabling automatic updates; otherwise the laptop is constantly stuck on the "failure to configure updates" error page (because, obviously, it's automatically attempting to install updates). I have done all the standard troubleshooting, including running MS Fix It, Dell Dr ('My Dell' found no hardware issues), MS Malware removal and Mcafee anti-malware. All reported "no issues". I have been in command prompt and found no issues I even tried to 'refresh' the laptop again two more times. I have also spoken to two Windows "technicians" and allowed one of them to remotely access my laptop. He found no issues or "violations".

Obviously, the temporary 'fix' of turning off auto-updates isn't a long term solution, and 'refreshing' the laptop hasn't worked (it actually caused the issue). Running Windows 8 on Dell Inspiron 3520.

I'm guessing full format needed? - Would a format resolve the issue, since a 'refresh' caused it?

Updates :: Activating Windows After A System Refresh?

Aug 5, 2014

I recently purchased a Acer Desktop PC, well recently was in Feb/March of this year.

I tried to refresh the system. All worked fine until I rebooted the system. After I input my log on password in it a screen comes on saying that windows cannot be activated at this time. Please try later or input the product key.Also I cannot download any updates, I presume because of the activation.

The Pc was purchased New and had windows 8.1 installed with no installation disks or product keys in sight. After much searching I managed to get the product key, manually input it and Nada, Nothing! It would not accept it.

Updates :: How To Revert A Windows Update

Jun 17, 2014

My son has an MSI Laptop running Windows 8.1. Following a recent Windows update (he cannot be more specific) he is no longer able to use his Admin (the only one) account. He sees the mouse pointer but the rest of the screen is black. Ctrl-Alt-Del does bring up a panel offering the usual options to shut down, reboot, Task Manager, etc. - but when I select Task Manager with the intention of seeing what processes are running,the dialogue does appear, but before it is properly displayed it vanishes.

Meanwhile the HDD light is burning constantly. If I simply leave the machine for 30 minutes or so, then the HDD activity subsides but there is still a blank screen. Moving the mouse pointer to the top or bottom right hand side of the screen has no effect.

Unfortunately we did not have the wits to set restore points Interestingly the other account (not administrator) is working without problem.

Updates :: Error 0xc0000022 When Trying To Update Windows 8

Jan 2, 2014

I have an HP that I cannot get to activate. I did a clean install and my login is an admin. I deselected installing Norton's during the reset but it was there when I booted up so I removed it with the Norton's removal tool. I tried activating by using the "Windows activation" from the search button and then tried by using an elevated command prompt of "slui.exe 4" but both ways gave me a 0xc0000022 error.

Updates :: Windows 8.1 - New Update Available Notification In Taskbar?

Jul 11, 2014

A niggle that's potentially quite a problem is that my 8.1 laptop Taskbar is not notifying me that "New Updates are Available."

I never set to install them automatically, I like to know what's going on and choose how to use my connection and processing power, but the notification from the Log In screen is easily missed and not satisfactory in my opinion. I think there's a third party piece of software to correct this, but I was wondering if there's a better way to restore the function?

All updates that were installed get undone. And if you install updates again, it will do the same thing. The reason is because of one update: IE 11 Windows 8.1 - KB2962872

Updates :: Windows Update Components Must Be Repaired

Jun 22, 2014

For about a month now I have been getting extremely slow internet and task manager says that "Windows Update" is using all of it. I ran the windows update troubleshooter and it came up with "Windows Update components must be repaired. Fixed." This fixes it for about half an hour and then I have to run the troubleshooter again and every time I do it says the same thing. I have tried googleing for answers and have tried a few things but so far nothing has worked.

Since this morning I have also been getting "Potential Windows Update Database error detected 0x80070490. Fixed" but it still comes up every time I run the troubleshooter.

Updates :: Windows Phone 8 Update History

Dec 21, 2013

Our effort to build great software never stops. That's why we periodically release updates for Windows Phone 8 to add new features that maximize your phone's performance. Below is a summary of what we've included in each update so far. The most recent update is listed first. The longer number refers to the Windows Phone operating system (OS) version.

Updates to Windows Phone 8 are cumulative, so when you install the latest update, you'll also get all the previous updates (if your phone doesn't have them already). Only updates that apply to your phone will be downloaded and installed.

When it's available, we'll also pass along software from phone manufacturers that improves the performance of specific phone models. If you have questions about what's included in a phone manufacturer update, contact your phone manufacturer.

See How do I update my phone software? to learn how to install updates or check if there's an update available for you to download.

Updates :: Windows Update Automatically Disabled

Aug 29, 2014

I have a little problem: I've just recently installed Windows 8.1, all the updates, and, from time to time (1 hour or even faster), action center tells me that windows update is disabled, and when I've gone to the settings, it was off. Ok, no problem, it's not hard to enable it. But, as I said, something, I don't know which program or the operating system or anything else stops it.

Updates :: Windows 8 Update Not Working (80072EE2)

Dec 1, 2013

I have purchased a new Windows 8 laptop and I'm looking to get the latest Windows updates in order to be able to upgrade to Windows 8.1. Every time I attempt to access windows update, either via the computer information or the start menu, it freezes. After a while it will eventually get to the actual update screen where I can choose to check for updates. Upon pressing this it freezes again, and will eventually resume checking. After a while I get the error code 80072EE2. I have tried using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool and it does notify me that there are problems and corrupted files, but says it hasn't fixed them! Screenshot below:

If the Troubleshooter can't fix this, what should I do to be able to update? I have previously performed a system refresh to attempt to fix this but it has not worked.

Updates :: Windows 8.1 Update Settings Changing Without Permission

Jun 21, 2014

I have my OS settings configured not to check for and install updates unless I prompt Windows to do so. I recently manually installed some updates. A few days later I noticed Windows was installing updates upon start up. I checked my update settings and sure enough they were set for everything to check and install updates automatically. What is going on here? I never noticed this kind of behavior with Vista or Windows 7. Any way to truly stop automatic updates?

Updates :: Windows Update Errors - 800F0922 80071A91

Feb 17, 2014

About a week a go I had to refresh my computer and had to therefore revert back to Win 8 and re-install updates. However, I now have 81 important updates that refuse to be installed and getting the errors 800F0922 and 80071A91 as you can see from below:

I have tried some suggestions that I've found around the web, such as using the Action Center Troubleshooter, Windows Update Diagnostic, SFC and DISM with the following effect:

However, the problem still persists. I also went through and tried to install every update individually, but no luck there either.

All of these updates are also ones that require a restart, I have managed to successfully install a couple that did not need a restart.
