    cannot complete updates


    every couple days my auto update tries to run, but it's always "cannot complete updates, undoing changes." I've never had this problem before in the years i've had my pc. Any ideas?

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond cannot complete updates :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
