RE­SET WIN­DOWS UP­DATE

Maximum PC - - WINDOWS SUPPORT MANUAL -

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.
