Over the past year, I’ve experienced a handful of Microsoft Windows 10 and Windows 7 computers which refuse to install operating system updates. Sometimes, I can repair the problems and other times I can’t.
One of my business clients has a Windows 7 computer which until last October was working fine with Windows updates. Since then it will try everyday to install 5 important updates and eventually fail. The funny thing is some optional updates have installed.
I’m taking a break from it while I research it some more and review what I have done up till now. Many things have been tried and I won’t go over all of them. Other than the failed updates, it has no other problems that I know of. The one thing I don’t want to do is make it worse by making the computer unusable. On another note, I don’t remember this happening with my Linux computers.
