    Update - Windows screwing up?


    The last update went in fine but colour settings have gone a bit loopy. Suddenly my colours on games and desktop were really vivid - a real pain on the eyeballs. Eventually fixed that but lost my custom settings. Secondly my task bar along the bottom of the desktop had gone white but nothing will let me change it. Looks a bit windows 7 ish to me?

    In setting/colours/taskbar there is a greyed out switch; this could be it? The three mentioned have all gone white

    Windows Update suddenly hangs?

    Windows Update is suddenly hanging for some reason... I went and downloaded and installed the first bunch of updates, restarted when asked, and now when I go back to windows update I just get the window with a white box forever. Reboot and it still does it. This happens to be on my main machine, running windows 7.

    I've also noticed when I reboot it says configuring windows update, step 3 of 3, 47%. Maybe it somehow skipped something and is screwed forever?
     
  3. Outlook, Windows update screwed my computer

    Hi Bennie,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.



    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. I’ll certainly help you with this.

    • When you set up the account, did you create a local account or Microsoft account?
    • What is the exact error message you get when you try to login?

    I suggest you to check if you have activated two step verification for your account. If yes, I suggest you to turn it off and check.

    How to use two-step verification with your Microsoft account

    Also check if the Windows Update was successfully installed on your computer.

    • Press Windows Key + I and click on Update and Security.
    • Under Windows Update tab, click on Advanced options
    • Click on View update history and check if the update is installed properly.


    Keep us posted with the status of the issue to assist you further.



    Thank you.

    Update - Windows screwing up?

    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 Update - Windows screwing up? :) Best regards.


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