  1. Windows shuts down before completing update


    As the title states, Windows shuts down before the cumulative updates can finish. It gets to exactly 7% every time before shutting off completely. I've had this computer for about four months and I cannot recall it ever actually completing. The error code I'm getting when checking my update history is 0x80070002.


    I regard myself as decently tech-savvy and have tried every solution found on Google. Here are a few I have tried without luck off the top of my head. There are way too many to list completely:


    - Disable all non-Windows services

    - Run the update assistant

    - Cleaning out old update files in safe mode

    - Running a whole plethora of commands in the command prompt


    Here are a few of the updates which have failed recently: KB4517389, KB4524100, KB4515384, KB4514359... The list goes on I can't really tell them apart.


    This is my last resort before giving in and completely wiping my disk, which will hopefully work. There was a user on this very forum with a similar issue, but the discussion died down before a solution was presented.


    Thanks!

    :)

    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 shuts down before completing update :) Best regards.


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

    Windows 10 is unable to complete shut down

    We suggest doing these troubleshooting steps below:

    Method 1. Hard Reset

    • Shut down your computer.
    • Remove the cable and wires connected to your computer.
    • Press the Power button for 10 seconds to completely drain your device.
    • Check if there's any changes.
    Method 2. Shutdown trick.

    • Press Windows key.
    • Press and hold Shift.
    • Click the Power icon.
    • Select and click Shutdown.
    Let us know the outcome.

    Windows shuts down before completing update

    W 10 will not shut down completely

    I have not changed the Intel Search Engine to a previous version as suggested, so I cannot say whether it works for my computer or not.

    What bothers me is that after Windows updates when my computer is on and I select reboot now instead of 3 a.m., the shut down and reboot process works fine. So, with my logic, I wonder how it can shut down completely after an update, but not when I shut
    down at the end of a normal day. I feel like the ability is there, but a step is missing.
