RESET WINDOWS UPDATE
1. USE SAFE MODE
Press Win-R, type “msconfig,” and press Enter. Switch to the “Boot” tab, and check “Safe boot,” selecting “Network.” Click “OK > Restart.” Once in Safe mode, launch Windows Repair ( www.tweaking.com) and work through the basic checks—ignore the power reset if your PC is otherwise OK.
2. PERFORM PRE- CHECKS
The other three steps—pre-scan, disk check, and System File Checker—are all essential in case your Windows Update problem is linked to disk errors or has missing or corrupt system files. Work through them, rebooting where prompted, then returning to that point in the program.
3. APPLY REPAIRS
Once done, click “Backup” to back up the Registry, and “Create” to create a system restore point. Next, you’re prompted to open Repairs or select a preset —select “Preset: Windows Update.” Click “Start Repairs.” When done, return to msconfig, and uncheck “Safe boot” before rebooting.
