Unable to Configure Win Updates

Q: Unable to Configure Win Updates

When Win updates are downloaded, the computer will not configure them and reverts back.What can I do?

Preferred Solution: Unable to Configure Win Updates

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.)

I constantlly get error_not_found 0x80070490 when trying to install updates.

The Microsoft website says its a CBS issue and that the resoloution is to run a repair installation of Vista. Thing is the software was pre-installed so i have no disc and i'm unsure how to run a restore without an OS disc and also without wiping everything accidentally.

HP say speak to Microsoft, Microsoft say speak to HP.

Any ideas how i fix this one before the PC flies out the window ?????

Hello all.

My Dell Inspiron 3520 was going quite slow for unknown reasons so I decided to 'refresh' it using Windows advanced start-up setting. Since that time I have been unable to install Windows updates. Well, I can 'install' them, but they won't 'configure'. Once installed and 'configured' 100% I get this error message advising following reboot : "Failure to configure updates. Reverting changes". The laptop then stays paralysed on that screen.

This only started to happen AFTER I "refreshed" my laptop, which was running Windows 8.1 pretty-much problem-free, though a bit slowly, until a week ago. For now I have found a temporary 'fix' by disabling automatic updates; otherwise the laptop is constantly stuck on the "failure to configure updates" error page (because, obviously, it's automatically attempting to install updates). I have done all the standard troubleshooting, including running MS Fix It, Dell Dr ('My Dell' found no hardware issues), MS Malware removal and Mcafee anti-malware. All reported "no issues". I have been in command prompt and found no issues I even tried to 'refresh' the laptop again two more times. I have also spoken to two Windows "technicians" and allowed one of them to remotely access my laptop. He found no issues or "violations".

Obviously, the temporary 'fix' of turning off auto-updates isn't a long term solution, and 'refreshing' the laptop hasn't helped (it actual... Read more

Automatic updates installed last night and when I went to turn on my computer this morning, my computer goes from:
Configuring updates: Stage 1 of 3 - 0% comlete to
Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 0% complete then reboots.

It does this CONSTANTLY!

I pressed F8 and went into Repair Your Computer.
I've tried: Startup Repair, Sytem Restore, and Command Prompt with chkdsk /f which gives me the reply: The type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.

I don't have a back up disk and I don't want to lose all my important documents and family pictures.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:Won't configure after updates

Answering my own question in case anyone else has this problem.

While looking for my original disks that came with my HP pavillion dv6000, I found a paper that said "Restore Your System Without Discs." My notebook did not come with discs. I was supposed to burn them from the computer.

BUT - it also said "To repair or restore from the hard drive, restart the computer and press F11 when prompted." So I did, and it brought me to the Recovery Manager. From this wizard, I was able to do the chkdsk. I chose for it to scan the Windows partition. The computer found and repaired loads of bad clusters. When I clicked "next," the computer rebooted, configured the updates and started perfectly! Whew!

Older HP laptop, XP Professional Version 2002 SP3, running Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 with databases updated 4/23/2011 2:04 pm.
Went and looked at the Automatic Updates configuration, all choices are greyed out. My selection of "download but don't install" is still checked, but can't change anything.
It's running a Full Scan from Kaspersky right now on the chance that it picks up something.

Any ideas? Any services that I may have turned off? The obvious ones are started. It seems to be running normally, no web redirects or massive slowdowns.

Suggestions welcome.

I have run SFC/scannow and also Dism.ex /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth .   I was able to get the Service registrations and Cryptographic component issues resolved. 

I have tried to get this KB update to complete several times and it will not do so.  It installs, tries to configure, then reverts the configuration and fails. 

I tried loading it directly from the Update Catalog and nothing seems to help.  Can someone point me in the right direction to find out WHY the configuration will not work?  Maybe then I can figure out how to fix it?

I got a Spanish Acer Aspire 5315 laptop off a friend, and did a factory reset. I installed SP1 and SP2, and installed the 90 other updates. I then installed Vistalizator to change the language to English.

The laptop now fails when trying to update with these two codes : 800F0826, 8008005. Then when the computer restarts it says " Updates were not configured correctly, reverting changes dont turn off the system" This stays on the screen from 5mins to 5hours! Usually I have to turn it off anyway and turn it back on to make it work quicker.

The laptop works fine anyway, however I know that the updates are important.

Windows help is about as much use as a plastic teapot, and when I looked it up online I found that alot of people are having this problem, especially with Acer ( although not all of them were Acer users) These people usually had there hard drive partioned with Linux on one partion and that was the main problem, however i dont have this, i only have the C and D partions as normal, and I cant find a fix.

Ive reset it 5 times to try and sort it but it just wont work. The only way so far is by just ignoring the updates.

Any ideas?

I recently downloaded and installed a set of Windows Updates that came out on 4/26. I had about 8 of them. 4 of them installed successfully but 4 of them were downloaded and installed(on shutdown) but fail to configure on startup. The four I'm having issues with are:


Each of these are updates for Windows 64-bit. I was wondering if anyone else was having issues with these as well. I plan on waiting a day or two and try again. I've tried twice today with no success.

For future reference, what can cause an update to fail to configure?

Last night I was going through the process of updating vista. The updates that pop up at the bottom right of the screen sometimes that tell you there are important updates for you to download. When the computer restarted it came up with the screen configuring updates, the first 2 configured just fine. My problem is that it trys to configure the third update, the computer sits there for about 5 minutes staying at 0%, then it will bring up a screen saying shuting down. The computer will then reboot and go back to configuring the third update again, and then shuts down. I tried to boot the computer in safe mode but it does the same thing.

Also I don't know if this would be a problem but the vista on this computer is an upgrade from xp. So I do have upgrade disc for vista. And I have tried to use the upgrade disc I went into repair computer option clicked on restore points and clicked on several different restore points before the time of the update and every time I try the restore it just fails and doesn't restore the computer to an earlier time. I've also tried to click on restore to last known working configuration that was unsuccessful as well.

Hi Guys, I'm hoping someone can help.

I've recently bought an ASUS X53E laptop which runs on Windows 7 and as of last night, I;m having a few problems.

My computer starts just fine but just before the login page appears is states that the computer has "failed to configure updates, reverting changes". The computer then often restarts, gives the same error and then allows me to login. I work with a guy who's a dab hand with computers and even he doesn't know what the problem is.

I have troubleshooted through the control panel and it tells me that update problems have been fixed, though nothing changes. I've even attempted to system restore but I receive an error message stating the the system restore could not be performed. Please help

Brand new laptop started having a problem with updates. Downloads vast numbers of them, then gets to 8% of configuring, restarts, tries to resume configuring and then gives an error message that it can't configure and is undoing changes.

I have reinstalled (reset) Windows, but still have the problem.

I can still send it back for a hardware repair, but suspect it might be software?

Could someone help?

A:[SOLVED] Acer laptop with Win 8.1 will not configure updates

Have you tried deselecting all the updates and then manually selecting only a few - for example, say 5 or 10 at a time?

I have seen Windows get confused when it has many updates to install. Installing them in smaller blocks often resolves the issue. But it needs lots of patience because you have to go through the Restart process for every block.

As you have described the problem it is unlikely that it is a hardware issue.

Hi everyone!

I have a Dell Precision T5400 running Win XP x64 Pro, the OS came pre-installed and it's working pretty fine so far, but there are a couple of issues which are bugging me, so there will be more threads about my pc

The first one is concerning Automatic Updates. When I go to Control Panel->Automatic Updates, all options there are greyed out. The selected choice (greyed out too) is "download updates and let me choose to install them", but windows hasn't updated anything since about three weeks when I started using it.

I read in this website some instructions to get it to work


I am a local administrator in the pc and did almost everything listed there. Why almost? Because in my registry this location is not present

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ WindowsUpdate

the only location in Policies is "Explorer"

also in the group policy editor, this location doesn't exist either:

=> User Configuration
==> Administrative Templates
===> Windows Components
====> Windows Update

Inside "Windows Components", there's only "Search" and "Windows Media Player"

The rest of the instructions were followed but automatic updates are still not configurable :S

Please help. Thanks!

Hi, i was wondering if there is a way to have the automatic updates to prompt only one user account for download and install.

I have the updates set for download only, and im looking for a way to make it so only I can install them and avoid all other users including those that have admin right from installing.

Some computers need the employee to be an admin, but i dont want them to see or be able to install updates. I just want my admin account to be able to do so.

I found the non-administrator notification setting and the shutdown notification option in gpedit.misc which will work for those workstations with no other admin. But was hoping i could configure my options a bit more and be selective by user.

Any ideas, thanks for reading

I left my computer logged on to the admin account yesterday. It does not sleep so when I woke up the monitors this morning I found the screen (attached) still counting up. My second monitor showed my normal background which I thought was odd if it was truly running updates. I right clicked on it and my task bar appeared on the main screen. I didn't do any more troubleshooting I just restarted. Everything seems to be running normally but I decided to check the Windows Update page and the last updates were installed on 7/11/2014 (screenshot attached). I stopped there and started looking for answers.

If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

I received a computer to fix that only has the most basic version of Windows Vista installed on it meaning it does not have SP1 or 2. Whenever I try to install these updates, they install fine but when the computer reboots I get the message of "Updates did not configure correctly, reverting changes back". I looked in the event viewer and I found the error code 0x800f0826. I saw that one way to possibly fix this is to restart Windows Update but I cannot display the interface for the program. I also cannot display the control panel. I learned after doing some research that the solution for this may lie in a service pack that I cannot download. I saw an auto fix for the Windows Update problem however after running it i got the message "Updates did not configure correctly, reverting changes back". Any help in this area would be greatly helpful since I have been working on this problem for quite some time.

Gooday all. I have a laptop set up for my entertainment area. I am using an HDMI cord from laptop to a screen and using the sound output to a set of surround sound speakers. This a pretty cheap set up,nothing fancy. I am trying to get all the speakers recognized by my Realtek Sound Management application. The Lasptop (http://speccy.piriform.com/results/J...8QITBgvOYgX6Ol) is only recognizing a 2 speaker stereo set up. How am I able to change this so as to be able to adjust settings to the 6 speakers of the system. Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to configure speakers on Laptop.

Looking at the Speccy, I don't see anything other than RealTek HD Audio. If the laptop has a RealTek HD Audio Manager, have you tried setting the speaker type there?

Aside from the audio issue, I notice you only have 2GB of RAM. The 64 bit OS does you no good with only 2GB of RAM, and can be an issue with only the 2GB which is bare minimum for a 64 bit OS. The main reason for using a 64 bit OS is to use more than 4GB of RAM, since a 32 bit OS cannot address 4 GB (or more) of RAM.

You may not have removed the trojan.cachecachekit completely. IMO I would follow the instructions here http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=15968. Also read this http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=59099.

When I press F1 in Outlook 2010, it starts a Configure dialogue. It always fails, then says restart to complete, even though it says it rolled-back changes. I don't know why it is failing, nor where to look. Obviously, I can't get help within Outlook.

Hi everyone,
I'm unable to configure WinRM on a domain computer. I have a simple domain with

1) Windows server 2012
2) A client running Windows 7

If I try to run WinRM on the local Administrator, everything works fine, but if I switch to a domain user, than problems occured.

For example, if i run winrm quickconfig in powershell as the domain Administrator, then I get:

WinRM already is set up to receive requests on this machine.
    Message = WinRM cannot process the request. The following error occured while using Negotiate authentication: An unknown security error occurred.
 Possible causes are:
  -The user name or password specified are invalid.
  -Kerberos is used when no authentication method and no user name are specified.
  -Kerberos accepts domain user names, but not local user names.
  -The Service Principal Name (SPN) for the remote computer name and port does not exist.
  -The client and remote computers are in different domains and there is no trust between the two domains.
 After checking for the above issues, try the following:
  -Check the Event Viewer for events related to authentication.
  -Change the authentication method; add the destination computer to the WinRM TrustedHosts configuration setting or use
 HTTPS transport.
 Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated.

Uninstall your Java and any Java plug-ins, then reboot your computer. After that, go and try the same things again in your browser options. If everything works out fine, just reinstall your Java and any plugins you may want.

Hello everyone,

I'm about at my wit's end trying to figure out my problem and finally decided I should ask the pros for help, since an exhaustive search of the interwebs has turned up nothing. I'm a hobby PC user so please be patient with me. So here is my problem.

I recently bought all the stuff to build an HTPC/gaming rig for my girlfriend and I and I wanted to set up RAID 1 but no matter what I try, I can't get it to work. Here is my rig.

ASRock H77 Pro4-M mobo
Intel i7-2600
(2) 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm; 6.0GB/s HDD
(4) 2GB G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR 1600 RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Video Card
Cooler Master 600W Silent Power supply

I think that's about it.

Here is what I've done.

I went into bios and set my storage configuration to RAID. After, I saved and exited, and allowed the machine to reboot. When it did, I pushed Ctrl + I to enter the RAID volume setup menu. I labeled the volume, chose RAID 1, selected my drives, selected my size, and saved and exited. Then I booted from my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (Dell OEM, if that matters). I selected my regional settings, and when prompted, accepted the terms and selected "Custom" install. At the drive select screen, I saw one disk, which I believe is what I should see. I highlighted the drive and selected "Load Drivers." I used the driver labeled with the arrow in the attatched image. I got it from my mobo's website found here ASRock > Products > H77 Pro4-M. After the driver loaded, I re... Read more

A:Unable to configure RAID on Windows 7 Home Premium

Why do you want RAID? WIn7 doesn't much like RAID which isn't even Redundant so risks losing both HD's if one fails. Better to install to one HD and use the other for backing up an image.

If you saw one correctly-sized RAID array when you booted into the installer to try hardware RAID then the driver wasn't needed as it's only loaded when no drive shows up. Try again.

I have an application running 24/7 which occasionally loses the ability to pause or configure it by right-clicking on the systray icon.
Is there an alternative method of doing this, or is a reboot the only answer?
(The programme is [email protected]).


A:Unable To Configure A Running Appn From Systray Icon

I am not sure what your question is.Do you interact with this or is it a remotely controlled client allowing the use of your computer's unused processing power by the research group?If the program stalled, you may be able to look in the task manager (ctrl/alt/del), highlight the running ap by right clicking on it, choose "go to process" , then right click on the process which will be highlighted and choose "set priority". Try elevating the priority.I suggest you write down what you did so you can reverse it if necessary.There is also a Bulletin Board for this. They might have or be able to provide specific information on the ap:http://forum.folding-community.org/There's also a wiki that may help answering questions:http://fahwiki.net/index.php/How_tos

After restoring my new laptop back to factory settings (to fix problem I was having with MSE), I find that I am now unable to configure my restore points. I am trying to increase the storage space so I can have several restore points. When I click 'Apply' or 'Okay' after changing the space allocation, the following error appears:

"The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. Error 0x800707B"

The following drives appear in the Restore Config window with Restore set to 'On':

Windows7_OS(C:)(Missing) -- this seems odd to me

For background info, I restored to factory settings and added MSE and then other programs one-by-one. After programs were re-installed, I restored my data from the previous night's backup. Everything is working fine and there are no system errors that I can see.

Would anyone have any insights on this problem?
