    Windows always telling me to reboot for update


    A few days ago, I started getting these message boxes telling me to reboot to update, or something like. So I did the "update and Restart" option. However, I am still getting these messages telling me to reboot.

    Belarc says that I have Windows 10 Home Single Language Version 1803.

    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?

    FIXED!! Windows 7 sp1 never ends searching for updates

    Ok I did another reboot, disabled windows update service, did step 3 again, this time it installed an update, enabled windows update service and did a reboot and voila!! *Peace Windows always telling me to reboot for update :peace:

    Windows always telling me to reboot for update

    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 Windows always telling me to reboot for update :) Best regards.


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