  1. Unable to complete updates


    Three times now, my PC has tried to download and install updates over the past 24 hours and each time it's failed.Twice I've opted to turn my PC off so it can do the installation and once it's failed to respond to an "Update and close down" instruction.The same has happened with two laptops, but only once so far - but tonight I'll close them down and see what happens. Dont ask why a PC and two laptops! I use my PC by day while my wife uses one laptop and I have another one beside my bed for late evening browsing I'm asking this question now after the third failure -

    :)

    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 Unable to complete updates :) Best regards.


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