Failure to configure windows updates

My os is Windows 8.1 64 bit system.I had to a complete re-install of 8.1 using Advanced Start Up procedure.After re-installing my programs and setting PC back to my personal preferences.Plenty of windows updates were installed with no problem at all.There is a big one 770.2Mb KB3000850 which fails to install ...after about 30% pc restarts then i see the ' Failure to configure windows undoing changes.Do not turn pc off '.I ran Sfc/scannow and everything is ok..then i ran DISM program and everthing ok...pc has no viruses etc..clean.

So,i am puzzled as to why all other windows updates install ok but not this one Do i need it even though it classed as important ?. I have marked this as hidden now and set windows update to receive updates i choose to install.

Any ideas why KB3000850 does not install ?

Looks as though you might do well to stop it trying to install this update.
