    Windows can't complete update

    I keep getting notifications that Windows is going to do wonderful updates and when I tell it to "Restart Now" it goes through a process and then says "We couldn't complete the updates, Undoing changes, Don't turn off your computer." That's all it ever does, every day numerous times. Should I just wait for Windows to get their heads out of their butts or do I need to do something?

    Hi Ken

    Could you share with us what version and build you are currently using.

    Windows Key + R, type winver, enter

    Have you tried running the update trouble shooter?

    Start > Settings > Update and security > Troubleshoot > Windows Update

    Things that make updates go smoother, disable AV if third party, unplug unnecessary devices, run sfc /scannow to ensure no errors and run chkdsk /f

    Please ensure you have a data backup at a minimum and it is always good to have a system image.

    Can't complete update

    It's going to take me some time to go through all things; I'll get on it. I'm concurrently trying to learn CyberLink PowerDirector !
