Computer says to restart to install important updates but when I restart no updates are installed and when I go to the check for updates folder it says your computer needs to restart to install updates.  Please help.  I've restarted several times.

Hi JAK1 ..

What settings do you use for Download and Install updates.

Click on > Start > To the left do you have a strip that contains Control Panel > At the end of that is there "Windows Update".

Do you see something like > click to expand the picture > Attached File  Updates.JPG   44.25KB   0 downloads

 

This is my morning update for Defender, and it is the only one I will Highlight. I  may check the others, but it seems like they are not important for now.

 

To the left of the Update Settings, click on > Change Settings < and you should see the page below. Is this like yours ??

 

Again click to expand the picture... Attached File  Updates.JPG   44.25KB   0 downloads

 

Also have you updated to Windows 8.1.. Once we know this we can continue ..

 

Please reply soon.. Thanks..

For some reason the above pictures won't expand but my update settings are set to install updates automatically.  Yes, OS is 8.1

I am having problems with the diagrams also, but it worked earlier on my 8.1

 

Change the setting in the left of the Update Settings, click on > Change Settings > Select from the drop down menu > Download updates but let me choose wether to install them..

 

Only select (tick) 4 or 5 Important Updates, then at the bottom Right select Install.. Do not try and install 20 or 30 updates at one time as this can cause a blockage..

 

Tell us what happens .

I don't receive an option to choose any updates to install after I changed the setting.  It still says restart your pc to finish installing updates with a button to restart now.  When I click on check for updates, it says you'll need to restart your pc to finish installing previous updates but I've restarted several times and no updates install and keeps showing this same thing.

Please go Start > Control Panel > At the bottom you should see Windows Updates, we may have selected them incorrectly...

Do you have 5 items listed as I see ? Control Panel Home

 

Check for updates << I think this is overriding other settings

 

Change settings << Change this to.. Under the Dropdown menu \/ at the end of this line select > Select "Check for updates, but let me choose whether to download and install them.

Untick the box below that, and tick the bottom box.

 

Then : View Update History

 

Finally : Restore hidden updates.

 

Once you change these please reboot your computer and make sure the settings are still the same

 

 

Please download SPECCY from our downloads. Once porn only select the Free Version at the lower left side of the download.

Do not click on any advertising around this or select other offers. Once downloaded please place a shortcut on your desktop.

This may show why you are having problems internally.

Right click on the icon and select Run as Administrator and the program will start. Click on File (at top left) and select Publish a Snapshot, click Yes.

 

This is a partial url that will show your system .. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/ynvm1YWWx0pRCRdHb

Copy and Paste the full URL (only) as it shows in the reply box back here. Do not attempt to take pictures of the system.

 

LAST -

Please list all your Antivirus and Antimalware programs running even if they are free or paid versions of either ..

 

Thanks

There were no  hidden updates.  What I ended up doing is running windows repair all in one and that seems to have done the trick.  Thanks for your help.
