    Still having update issues


    On my taskbar there is a shield with a red X in it, I believe this is Defender. Anyhow, it tells me to open settings and when I do it says "Your device is at risk because it's out of date and missing important security and quality updates. Let's get you back on track so Windows can run more securely. Select this button to get going:" What can I do now since I have already restarted several times. I posted in a thread a while back that I was having update issues A question about service updates - Windows 10 Forums if you want to read it.

    Hi bla19

    Just so we know, what build are you on? (We saw from other thread you are 1709. Looking for build.)

    Windows key + R, type winver, enter

    Are you running any other AV (McAfee, Norton, Avast etc.)?

    You didn't fill in any specs, what device do you have?

    My next step would be to reset Window Updates.

    Reset Windows Update in Windows 10

    After it is done ensure you restart computer (not shutdown).

    My next suggestion would be an inplace repair / upgrade. Let's see if Update reset works.

    build number (os build 16299.192). If this is not up to date then I will retry to reset update which I did last time. Also I run Norton and Malwarebytes anti malware. Today defender said virus and threat protection has stopped click to restart so I did, but Norton and Malwarebytes were still green to go. This was before I checked settings to see that error update error.

    I tried almost everything including reset update and then I think I fix my problem thanks to the advice above.
    "My next suggestion would be an inplace repair / upgrade. Let's see if Update reset works."
    When I did the repair it installed the fall version of Windows 10. It then said check for updates which I did overnight. It then said update failed retry. When I hit retry it successfully updated and I am now on version 1079 (os build 16299.371).

    Thanks for all the help
