Hi all,

 

My computer will not update. It will configure them up to 13%, restart, configure them again up to 13%, then brings me to the desktop. The same 83 updates are available. I even tried the update hotfix but no luck.

 

Any ideas?

Is your firewall active ?  Is your A/V active and updating itself ?  If the answer to either of these questions is 'No', then download, install and run Malwarebytes, which you can get from this link, and see what it says.

If it comes up with any problems that it cannot fix itself, then raise a topic in the 'Am I infected?' section of BC, but be patient, these people are busy.

 

If it doesn't come up with any problems, or at least none that it doesn't fix, then try installing the uploads a few at a time. I know this is tedious but some computers can get overwhelmed by a large number of updates. Try five or ten at one go. To do this, in the Updates available box, click on the left hand side where it says 83 updates available. This will bring you to a screen listing them all. De-select them all, then select 5 or 10 at a time, click 'OK' then 'Install now'.

I have MBAM/MSE and they update regularly. I'll try a few at a time.

The few at a time seems to work. Thanks!

It seems one of these causes it to stop at 13%, restart, then stops at 13%.

That's the advantage of doing a few at a time !  Now that you have the list down to a dozen or so, try them two at a time or even one at a time. When you isolate the one that is causing the problem just mark it as 'Hidden' and it won't try to install itself again. MS will bring out an improved version sooner or later.
