Windows update reverting update issue

Q: Windows update reverting update issue

Hi, I have recently just got done building my computer. Did the hardware, pretty much all the software till all I had to do was install 231 important windows updates. So I aloud it and it took a good hr to install it all.. than the computer shuts down and I turn it back on, than it goes into configure the updates mode.. 20 minutes later it says failed windows updates and is now reverting back.. and not in those exact words.

When I was finally able to get out of the revert update screen which took about 30-40 minutes everything seemed normal, till I opened the update history screen and showed about 95% of the updates failed. I also noticed that it had installed the updates on my HDD which is my D: storage but should have installed it on my C: SSD storage. Now I need to figure out how to get rid of that locked folder on my HDD and place all the windows updates on my SSD.


i7 4790k cpu

gtx 750 ti gpu

ddr5 2400 memory

evga 850 g2 psu

Z97 gaming 5 mobo

Samsung 500gb SSD

1.5tb HDD (seagate I think)

windows 7 64bit home

I've been searching around to see if there was a fix but a lot of people have had a really hard time with this issue and seems to be so many people unable to fix it.. I'll be turning off windows update till I figure this out.

Thanks guys

Preferred Solution: Windows update reverting update issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello to all, 
there is a known issue i found out about this but any of the things i tried have not solved it.
the KB3033929 is failing to install with error code 0x80004005 , while the system reboots , while it's in the configuration phase it fails and revert changes , and gets stuck on a reboot loop until eventually resolve and enable a login to the system.
the only thing i did that let me overlap this problem was to UNcheck the update and choose Hide this update.
i executed Microsoft's Tool mentioned in this Thread (to fix WUS issues)
but with no change after re-installing the update.
what i basically wanted to know - is this KB3033929 important that it can't be hidden to long ? or if there's another update that facilitates this one...
and of course if there is another solution i would more than happy to try.
thank you in advanced for any of your thoughts.

I'm new to this forum and want to send a shoutout and a Thanks for all that everyone does on here.

I have a Gateway Win 7 64 bit desktop PC, that is having issues with Windows Update.

I guess that I have not been paying attention to my Windows Updates and I have not done a normal shutdown of my PC in a while. There were strorms coming up and I decided to power down. It said configuring updates, do not turn off PC. The next thing I noticed a few hours later, it was on my grey Gateway start up screen saying something along the lines of Failure configuring Windows Updates, Reverting Changes...." After like three hours, I was back in business. Well, the computer at random times tries to re-run the updates with the same message. Finally, yesterday I searched and found Microsoft's "Windows Update Troubleshooter." I ran it and it said that it fixed all of the updates. I even did a couple of reboots and Windows started normally.

BUT, last night, my wife noted that it said that the computer needed to reboot to allow updates to finish processing and of course, it went through the whole Failure configuring windows upates, reverting and such. Arrgh!

How can I fix this? I thought that the Troubkeshooter tool might work (and iot looked like it did) but then it tried updates just a few hours later.

Thanks for any guidance!

Every time I try to update W 8 I get the error message saying the updates failed and the purple screen that says it is "reverting update". I thought it might be multiple updtaes at once cusing the problem so I tried individual updates at a time. Also disabled AV. Ran update repair. Nothing works.
This after I tried the W8 to 8.1 upgrade and it failed. So I thought I would need to make sure updates were complete. Thus the issue with updates. Ultimately I will try and install the 8.1 os after all this. Any suggestions.
Thanks folks!

Hi all,

I give up in frustration. I have three Windows Updates that will not install:
3003057 (IE11), Error 800F0826
3002885 ("Security Update"), Error 8007054F
3003743 ("Security Update"), Error 8007054F
I have utilised the System Readiness Update Tool, run that sfc command - no errors reported.

I've deleted the WU download folder, re-started the WU service.

I've tried installing them one at a time - no difference.

It seems to be any that require a reboot, that fail (although the AMD SATA driver did install).

Is there something I am missing?

I'll attach the CBS log in a minute - it seems to have gone missing!

I'll try and get the CBS Log File attached tomorrow.

I have tried my best to update Windows 8 so I can install Win 8.1 but somehow it's not happening for me. The first time I tried to install the updates, Windows Update stopped working. Had to reset everything and install it again. Unfortunately it reverted all changes after 2 hours of installation. The "Reverting Changes" window was in a loop forever (Around 6 hours) so I had to reset it again. Now I am installing the updates in a chronological order. I am down to 82 updates from 98. The problem I face is that each time I try to install more updates it reverts changes and I have to go into repair mode, safe mode and then back to Windows. It takes forever. Is there any workaround for this? I have posted the screengrabs of the remaining updates.

A:Windows Update keeps reverting changes

If you have 3rd party security installed, uninstall then use the removal tool for it too. By far, it's best to do anyhow for when updating to 8.1.

Scan for malware and rootkit with both Malwarebytes products.

My computer has the following message after booting up: windows update failed, reverting updates.

This is before I get to the desktop, it just hangs like this, even in safe mode.

I've tried booting in safe mode, same thing happens.

I've tried system repair, it said that there is nothing to repair.

I can't use system restore because I don't have a restore point available.

Must I reinstall?

Please help!

A:Windows update failed, reverting

How long did you wait so far? I'd recommend to let it load.. it could take a while but it's the safest way to regain access to your system. Start it before you go to sleep and check it in the morning again.

If it's a new system, don't install to many updates at once..

Hello all, I've been having this problem recently ~2-3 weeks ago with my Windows Update.

I am unable to install these 3 updates through Windows Update, as well as downloading them manually from the Microsoft Update site:

Security Update for .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for x64-based Systems (KB2446710)

Security Update for .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for x64-based Systems (KB2478662)

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2871997)

Sometimes it will install one of the three updates and ask me to restart, while it's step 3 of 3 of the updates it quickly shuts down (sometimes so fast I don't see the message): Update failed, reverting changes or something along the lines of that and automatically restarts, does the same thing until I reboot in safe mode then back in normal mode.

I have Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes fully updated and installed, and have ran full virus/rootkit scans on both of them and it doesn't pick up anything. My Windows is Genuine.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Also on a side note: Whenever I double-click an image on my desktop and a couple folders and close it my explorer.exe stops responding for about 20 seconds, it only happens in 2 folders and the desktop; could this be malware? If so how can I fix this without reinstalling my windows (I've already reinstalled once, but I never had that problem before.)

So I've had this issue for a couple of days, several tries at reinstalling the update. Then I ran CHKDSK to try and fix it, even tried clean boot mode nothing has worked. I've attached a CBS log to see if someone can spot the issue.

(reference Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2868626)

A:Windows Update faliure to configure reverting changes.


Then I ran CHKDSK to try and fix it

Did you run chkdsk /R ? If the file resides on an area of the HDD with bad sectors, the file will become corrupted. chkdsk /R would mark the bad sectors and move the file to a good sector.

Recently after my Dell computer downloaded latest window updates, and then trying to install them as normal, it says after it reboots

"Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes."

This it does and goes to the normal log inscreen, but this has happened more than once now. After a recent virus problem that was sorted by you guys on here i also have a message about blocked startup programs.

I dont know what i should do if anything, would be very grateful for some advice

A:Windows Update - Not configured correctly. Reverting changes

You don't want to ignore it, since it sounds like the Windows Updates are failing, and you will need the newest security patches and updates to keep from getting infected again. Just recently I had a computer I was working on with the same problem after being infected as well. I ended up doing a clean install of Vista from the Recovery Partition, and then running updates all over again until it was up to date.

Have you tried Last Best Known Configuration yet?

I have been having a problem installing Internet Explorer 11 on Win 7 64bit, the problem started a few days ago when it tried to automatically install as part of the Windows Update, the machine rebooted then got to stage 3 of 3 in the windows update then failed with a message that said reverting changes, it then took me to the login screen I popped in my password to login to the desktop and the desktop would not load instead I was faced with a Black screen, I left the computer for about an hour and nothing had changed, I managed to get back into the computer by going into the System repair and using system restore.
My Security is Norton IS 2014 and Trusteer Rapport, the computer is a HP G5200uk running Windows 7 64bit
Since then I have tried the following
Ran Chkdsk
Ran SFC / Scannow - Found and fixed errors
Ran System Update Readiness
Reset Windows Update Components (using Tweaking.com all in one repair)
Downloaded IE11 manually and installed  - Same Problem
Clean Boot - Same Problem
Since then I have managed to install other updates fine a hotfix was installed yesterday and also installed Office 2010 Service pack 2 today which again was fine there just seems to be a problem with IE11

I turned on laptop this morning.. it said updating update 78 of 160.. i Waited until it went to 160, which took 90minutes or so..

Then it said stage 1, then stage to, and onto stage 3...
It was stuck on 15% for well over an hour and half, now it says
stage 3 of 3, reverting changes...

It stays on this for over half an hour and then just shut downs the laptop?

I tried to boot in safe mode.. and it still shows the stage 3 of 3 reverting changes..
I wanted to boot into safe mode as I have created a restore point before all this happened when everything was fine.

I tried boot from disc to repair computer but now I'm told it's the wrong disc.. is there any software I can downlaod to try repair the pc or why would this be happening??

I recently installed AVG Pro.. might this be causing it.. is there any way I can uninstall AVG any other way if I cannot log in normally or to safe mode? To rule out that

A:Windows 7 Update stuck/reverting/shutdown

Just thought I'd update, been trying it for last 2hrs..


To rule out if it was AVG or not..
I booted of a cd to run Mini XP..

After doing this I located AVG folder and renamed it so it would not run on boot up.

I restarted laptop and it allowed me to boot into safe mode..

So I restarted the laptop to boot from Win 7 disc..usually I get option to install new, 3 options box..
it came up with a different screen, i clicked next to and it showed system restore etc..

I clicked restore, it showed 2 restore points. One from 2days ago when it was runnign fine, so i selected that.

It seemed to be working fine until the end, it said, could not finish restore poitn as AVG could not be restore..

This must mean the problem lies with AVG install yes?

ANY help would be great, thanks.

Windows 8.1

PC got recovered on Tuesday, so had no updates on it. Installed and restarted the PC today, it installed so many percent and restarted. It then carried on installing them.

It the said that the updates had failed and that it was reverting and not restart the PC. It was stuck like that for an hour. So I restarted it and tried to get into safe mode using F8/Shift-F8, but it doesn't work goes back to the reverting updates screen. I have tried numerous times and Windows Recovery won't appear either.

I don't have a Windows disc. It is a Compaq PC and I can't lose any of the files.

Can anyone help?

I had this problem when i bought a broken SSD haha! unfortunately, something got corrupted that caused you to lose important update files that are required to update!

Hi there,

I turned on my laptop today, and I got the message "Windows failed to configure updates, reverting changes' at the logon screen, and it just loops there forever, even if i leave it there for like an hour. I can't shutdown or restart, unless I power it down.

I tried to boot into safe mode, but i can't do that either, I get the same message, and last known configuration doesn't work either.

I go to system restore, and it just fails on every system restore image. says something about failing to extract a different file each time, and the registry could not be copied on one of them.

It won't let me run a SFC /scannow check either, and I just can't get passed the logon screen stage. Startup repair doesn't help either, just says everything is fine and that my boot was successful :S weird.

Any ideas or suggestions, minimizing having to format and reinstall windows - as it's got all my alevel work on it o.0

thanks in advance!

A:Configuring Windows Update -Failed, Reverting back..


Solved same problem today on two computers running Win7. Both failed installing four upodates and have been like this for several days.
SOLUTION: Go to Win Update. View the four files that Win 7 is trying to update. You will see four updates with their boxes checked for auto update. Unclick update KB982018 and update only the remaining three. Later update KB982018 separately. You can also manually update these individually. This worked for me.

2 problems.

1) I disabled Windows Update in Services to avoid having to deal with the bullsh* updates. Later I put it on "manual" instead of "disabled". Today I find that my computer is "installing updates" WITHOUT a) my permission and b) without notifying me that there were updates to install. This thrashed my hard drive with near constant 100% usage from something called Windows Modules Installer Worker. I killed the process, rebooted after some Adobe Reader issue (unrelated....I think). Upon selecting "restart" Windows informs me that it is updating my system WITHOUT my permission. It continues, updates, says finished, restarts to 0%, finishes, reboots.

Upon restart--which takes FOREVER by the way without the "updating" message, when it used to only take a few seconds to boot up--I go to Services where I find Windows Update is set on "running". Even though I manually stopped it, and set it to "manual trigger" start....

2) After restart when I am in Services to kill Windows Update and set to manual--again--I see something called Update Agent, set to run automatically. I do not remember this service from before, and I have no idea what it does different from Windows Update. I set it on manual as well.

What does Update Agent do differently from Windows Update? They are listed as separate services

What happened to make my computer update without my consent??

i have a laptop windows 8.1 64 bit on it. it downloaded windows updates and got stuck when completing 100% saying it failed and started to revert changes. it got stuck for a whole day now. so i downloaded wind 8.1 iso with media creation tool and put it on a usb.

since it's monitor is broken and it's my friends laptop i took it home to fix it over night and return it to him tomorrow since he's addicted to it playing euro truck simulator 2.

however there's a problem. i got the windows boot menu where you can choose to repair or restore or do some cmd's.
they didnt work and said the hdd or OS was locked and i needed to unlock it then restart the pc and come back to the restore option. didnt know what to do so i restarted thinking it didnt recognize the os properly. didnt work after restart.

so i clicked on what i though was a reinstall while keeping your files. but i got a second glance at it and i think it said recovery while you lose your files. idk about steam and euro truck simulator 2 and cloud saving. som im afraid his save files are gone unless you guys know something i can do.

i booted up the usb since it fail to detect the hdd since i chose the recovery option i restarted thinking i didnt want him to lose any files.

Hello, I have Carbon X1 5th (20HR) running Windows 10 pro (updated).  Altought I followed the instructions here - https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/cy/en/downloads/ds120390 (This is the page for Lenovo users who wish to update TPM firmware) - and installed the "BIOS Update Utility for Windows 10" version 1.33, Windows still keeps telling me to update the TPM firmware driver.  In BIOS it shows that I have TPM ver 2.0, enabled. Since Windows kept telling me to update the TPM driver, thanks to Google I found out that there is a tool created by Lenovo called "TPM Firmware Update Utility -ThinkPad" (It is worth noting that this tool is not mentioned on the instruction page). I downloaded the tool, but can't understnad how to use it (assuming that I should use it at all, because this tool is not mentioned on the TPM instructions page). Could you please help me to solve the TPM issue described above? Is there a way to check what version do I have? Thanks in advance!

For days now with no success, I have been trying to update from Windows 8 (64 bits) to Windows 8.1 a Satellite C875-153 (PSCBCE-03H002FR)

is how can I identify which update is causing the problem ? Which logs should I check and where should I look ?

Hello Everyone,

I just installed windows 8 on my computer, I did all the updates. When it restarts, it get to 98% and goes to the "Reverting Changes." I need to do updates, so I can update to 8.1.

My questions:

-Could this be caused by one or more updates that is being installed?
-If so what update would cause this?
-Is there a list of updates that is needed to upgrade to 8.1 from 8?
-What is the best way to fix this problem?

Thanks for your time and help!!

A:Windows 8 - Windows Update Reverting Changes

Before upgrade to Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store, you do not need to install all Windows 8 updates from Windows Update. You only need to install KB2871389 update, then you’ll be able to install the Windows 8.1 update via the Windows Store. Download and install KB2871389 update from link or from Windows Update.

KB2871389 (direct download link)
- All supported x86-based versions of Windows 8: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...871389-x86.msu
- All supported x64-based versions of Windows 8: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...871389-x64.msu

But if you've opened the Windows Store and you don't see the Windows 8.1 update, then you will need to also install KB2917499 update.

After a Windows update and restart the following problem appeared 
When the Windows 7 64 machine is started it boots correctly then immediately goes to a blue "Configuring Windows" screen followed, after a couple of minutes, by the "Failure Configuring Windows Update Reverting Changes" screen. After
around 3 hours this eventually changes to "Shutting down". This has been left overnight and still says "Shutting down". During start up I don't get to the log-on screen and don't have access to any settings. A shared partition on the machine
is visible from other computers and a SQL database can be accessed during the Reverting Changes stage.
I can restart the machine successfully in Safe Mode and have tried a clean boot. Chkdsk has been run. Microsoft Help says use FixIt but FixIt doesn't run in Safe Mode and I can't access the machine after a normal boot to run it then. Diagnostics doesn't
work in Safe Mode. For the same reasons I can't turn off Windows Update or attempt a reinstall. An attempt to restore to a previous version doesn't work giving an 0x80070005 error code.
Reinstalling the OS from disk seems like overkill and a huge investment in time (bringing back up to date and reinstalling software). Surely there must be a way of bypassing or deleting the failed update or the service that is trying to configure it?
Our small business is reliant on this machine so we are quite desperate for a solution.

My acer aspire v5-571-6471 went to update last night. It ran into a problem of some sort told me failure in update and is reverting back to its last functions. I went to bed and when I woke it was on a please wait screen. Been there for 9 hours. I tried alt+f10 to access the recovery partion as I can not get to my login screen. But alt+f10 does nothing. I do not have a windows 8 recovery dick laying around as I just bought the laptop from my sister who also has no recovery dick. Please help. If anyone is nice enough to make a recovery dick iso for usb and allow me to download it I would be grateful. I really don't have the money to go and buy anything at this current time.

A:failure in update and is reverting back

The proper word is disc for CD or DVD, not dick. You sound young.

Disc is marked as such on the face of the Optical drive tray.

You can get the Factory Restore discs for Windows 7 from Acer, I did for an Aspire I was given, cost less than $30US, haven't check price for Windows 8 yet.

Refreshed my laptop, so I had to reinstall all the windows updates. It prompts me to restart my pc. I oblige. System reboots. I'm then met with a screen that states that it's configuring updates. Then it tells me it's failed and it's reverting changes. I leave it for two hours and it's still stuck on that. I force restart, and it goes back to the configuring update screen, follow by the reverting changes screen. Basically, I'm stuck now, can't get to the windows login screen. F8 doesn't bring up the safe mode option. Help

A:Failed to configure update, reverting changes

Do you have the installation disk? If so try booting from that and do a startup repair.

I have tried several times to update to the anniversary update, and at the start, everything is going fine. the update installs correctly, and is working fine. but when i try to turn off the computer, it won't. the screen goes black, but 30 seconds later if i touch the mouse, the login screen appears. turning off the computer from that screen does not help either.

The only way to turn it off is by holding down the power button, or the restart button at the login screen. the problem is when i turn the pc back on again, a black screen appears saying "restoring your previous version of windows". that takes a minute to do its thing, then i have the old version of windows 10 again. this has happened several times, i have deactivated third party anti virus programs, and even did a clean boot, but still the same thing is happening. any idea of what causes this?(this picture is not me, but shows what happened to me, as my picture did not work (it's different problem than mine))

I recently installed the Anniversary Update and I tested some apps to see if they work. I tried to open Wifi Analyzer and it immediately crashes after opening. After trying to open it multiple times I decided to reinstall. I uninstalled it but my internet went down so I wasn't able to connect to the store. Then I revert to the previous build 10586.545 for personal reasons.

The All Apps list somehow has that app on the list. I couldn't open it and it wouldn't let me uninstall. Once I got internet I went to the store and it says it is installed, but there is no open button.

A very strange thing happened today, first time I've seen this on my real or virtual machines. Luckily it happened to a VirtualBox vm for which I had several snapshots so I could revert to an earlier state and got everything back (VirtualBox vm snapshot = about the same as system image on real, physical computer).

Here's the problem description, I would like to know what happened and maybe also why this happened.

A Windows 7 Enterprise installed on VirtualBox 4.04 virtual machine, licensed and activated. A lot of software installed, used solely for testing purposes. Been up and running a few months without issues, all updates installed except SP1.

Today a normal boot produced this:

Attachment 151170

It took about a minute for Windows to run through "update operations" 1 through 92703.

After "Applying update operation" phase Windows rebooted, trying to configure some updates, finally stopping like this:

Attachment 151171

Again a reboot. Windows had totally reverted to a point after first boot. All installed software is gone, as well as installed updates and personalizations. It's just like after the first boot after installation some months ago, even showing the browser choice dialog:

Attachment 151172

As I mentioned, this is not an issue per se because I could use an earlier snapshot to put everything back, to revert Windows as it was yesterday. However, I really would like to learn what and why happened. I have never before seen a Windows instal... Read more

A:Applying update - Failure configuring - Reverting changes

Hello Kari!

I shall post all that I can, however, it is far from the reason. It isn't really very solid at all, but it may be all you can get.

How sure are you that it is exactly at the point after first boot? What I mean by this is this (slightly below (restructured post subtly, read to end before attempting to answer )

Today a normal boot produced this:

That should only ever be caused by a Windows Update. Any chance that a Windows Update installed in the background last time before you shut down?

There is a bug which you might just be experiencing. Experts the world over argue about whether this is even possible. I have seen it with my own eyes; it happened on one of my own computers once. And I am not the only one. Many people have experienced and reported it, but to many experts it seems impossible. It is not impossible, it happened to me.

What happens is that the "Setting up account for first time use Window appears" when it shouldn't do. And it creates a whole new user profile of sorts.

Say my account name is Richard. My old folders were like this:

etc. etc.

The re-running of the configuring window creates new copies of these folders in the same directory:

C:\Users\Richard\Documents\~My original documents, still intact
C:\Users\Richard\Documents\~Default template
C:\Users\Richard\Desktop\~My original documents, still intact
C:\Users\Rich... Read more

Had this problem on 2 machines; I read and tried all the fixes suggested on the internet; about a dozen of them over and over again.
Problem is the HARDDRIVE!
I had a fresh install and had the problem with existing harddrive.
Also had problem on an up and running computer about 4 months old; just never got around to fixing it.
I tried all the fixes on the new one to no luck. I know some windows setup settings look for certain hardware for some setup processes so I tried an old drive I have kicking around. I Cloned the new drive onto it and ran the computer and then SP1 and all worked. I cloned back to the new drive and about 187 updates have now installed. It's working perfectly.
I had the same problem on the second computer and cloned it onto a different drive and then to an SSD also; it worked on both drives; also had 187 updates install.
Even after reinstalling the OS twice and immediately trying the SP1 it still didn't work until I cloned to the older harddrives.

Right so for the past few months I've been having issues with windows updates failing on my home PC--it's gotten to the point where it's become quite a concern.. 44 updates behind, and as a cellphone tech support myself I know what being 'behind' can do
to a device.  SO.. these are the steps I've taken:
Standard Reboot (no good)
Utilizing Microsoft's FixIt software for both Windows Update and BITS, reboot (no good)
System Restore, Reboot (no good)
Clean Boot, uninstalled antivirus/malware and a host of other old applications, Reboot (no good)
Clean Boot, removing all peripherals, reboot (no good)
Manual installation for a handful of the missing updates (no good)
After all my troubleshooting I've come to look over the Event Logs to find that all security updates end with error 0x800F0922, and all other updates fail with error code 0x80246013.  Upon reviewing several support pages here on Microsoft I've just
been drawing a blank.. the security updates aren't allowing me to complete all other updates due to the fact they require the system to be UP TO DATE.  I did find one article that stated I should look into removing VPN clients (which I don't have any
to my knowledge, couldn't find them anyway) and increasing my System Reserved partition (which seems pointless in my opinion).  Just not sure what they're on about.. and I did spend about 3 hours with chat support from Microsoft regarding my issues, however
that wasn't fruitful at all,... Read more

Window 7 x64 pc with Avast virus
Notice the issue yesterday, not sure how long it might have been affecting Firefox.
Yesterday, Avast could no longer access server to update.  Went to Avast website to manually download virus file.  Said it was up to date.  After two days, I highly doubt it is still upto date.  Tried downloading a fresh copy of the software and reinstalling.  No change.
Now I just noticed Firefox also can not access anything and when I try to update it, it says it is up to date.  I have version 22.00, not the current 23.  Don't know how long it has been blocked from updating.  Didn't find anything to improve the problem in thier troubled shooting area.  Tried downloading new copy of Firefox..... and download failed.
Two days ago, I downloaded a Windows update, classified as Critical.
I do have another computer running on the same internet connection.  It appears to be fine and has to current Firefox version.
Is this a virus or a result of the Window's update?
Thanks for your help!

A:Avast and Firefox update blocked, virus or Window Update issue?

I forgot to say, Internet Explorer and other programs are working just fine.  No issues accessing anything on the internet.  The only problems,  appear to be Firefox and Avast unable to connect to server.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I am trying to update from Windows 10 OS Build 10586.589 to the Anniversary Update but my computer freezes at 1% progress. I have tried everything I can think of including: Unplugging all extra SATA drives except my main SSD, unplugging my wireless network adapter, unplugging all USB devices (even mouse and keyboard), removing old drivers and updating outdated ones, and installing the update through a USB flash drive. It always gets to the same part and freezes until I shutdown my computer and lose no data.

You can see pictures of the frozen screen here: http://imgur.com/a/PseoH.

Hi Techguys

There's uncommon problem been going on with close to be retirement PC as I've did few updates earlier as I rarely used till I need it.

When I turn on the PC since long time and its running as normal and Windows has informed that updates are available for update so I agreed on all update and close down. When next time I load the computer the POST and windows logo booting as normal but after that the resolution of screen looks quite standard than I expected and my keyboard and mouse were unresponsive. I decided to go in Safe Mode and sometimes that failed as same result and after few attempts, it would got in me through. I restored PC back to before update and its running fine till update comes on. Accepted it and its starting doing the same resolution and keyboard / mouse being unresponsive.

This time I have decided to shut the PSU for few sec like 3 second then turn on and then press power button and the PC runs fine, This has been going for few time but now it seems to be back to normal. Im unsure if my computer has this problem ongoing as I plan to put this PC in resignation and setting as KMV switch and using my new built up PC but have concerns for my old PC which is over 10 years but still ongoing and healthy with regularly service same as the cars. (change CPU/Heatsink glue) and keeping dustfree and reguarly maintaining. The Malwarebytes Anti-malware come out all clear.

Any suggestion?
