I recently tried updating my HP g55 to the latest version of Windows and it keeps on failing after downloading up to 90 percent... It kills my data and yet, it doesn't update... How can I fix this issue with Windows latest update?

If you are referring to updates failing to install try the following.  This will reset the update components.


Open Notebook and copy and paste the batch script below in it.  Save this to the Desktop and name it UCReset.bat.

echo Simple Script to Reset / Clear Windows Update
attrib -h -r -s %windir%\system32\catroot2
attrib -h -r -s %windir%\system32\catroot2\*.*
net stop wuauserv
net stop CryptSvc
net stop BITS
ren %windir%\system32\catroot2 catroot2.old
ren %windir%\SoftwareDistribution sold.old
ren "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\application data\Microsoft\Network\downloader" downloader.old
net Start BITS
net start CryptSvc
net start wuauserv
echo Task completed successfully...

To run the batch script right click on the UCReset.bat file on the desktop and select Run as administrator.

Restart your computer and try updating again.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
