Windows 7 - Upgrade and configuration problem

  StephenGarrow 22:39 28 Apr 2015

My computer using Windows 7 Home Premium automatically installs Window updates. However after doing this, at approximately 16% in the configuration process it fails and reverts backs to before the updates. The next time the computer is used it installs the updates again and again fails at the configuration stage again. This whole process can take 2-3 hours. Any help guys?

When it boots after reverting, Start Search Windows Update.

Change settings from Automatic to Download but let me choose.

If you have lots, install in batches to narrow down which may be a wrong'un


Also Start Search cmd.exe, right-click and run as admin.

Type sfc /scannow


There is also a Windows Update Fixit which may or may not help.
