    Some issues with windows update

    I have a few issues with windows update.

    Sometimes after installing updates, i get a message that says rolling back updates, which basically prevents me from using my computer.

    I get a popup message that tells me to restart my computer after it has been updated. I want to disable this popup message completely.

    Windows doesnt install new updates automatically, so i have to install them manually instead.

    Sometimes windows refuses to let me update my computer.

    I appriciate any help.

    Hi, Please start by doing these basic initial steps as I know nothing about the state of your PC.

    1. Check the disk.
    Download and run Crystal Diskinfo (free) - Quick Good/Caution/Bad indication.
    Do not proceed if not good.

    2. Check the file system
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

    3. Run Ccleaner (free) to remove temporary files etc.

    4. Here is a useful compendium of possible steps.

    Replace the section about reading the logs with the above.

    Please post a screenshot of your update history like this:

    Which version and build do you have? Run Winver to find out. The latest is version 1703, build 15063.138 for the Creators Update, or 1607, build 14393.1066 for the Anniversary Update.

    Which updates are causing problems? The failed updates should be listed in:
    Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Update history

    It says version 1607, build 14393.10.

    @dalchina I will try your programs and get back with the results.

    Ok, you're quite a way back. Step 4 contains lots of ideas for fixing Windows update.

    When you get there, you can start by simply running the troubleshooter

    Frankly it is more hassle than it is worth trying to sort this. It is easier to download the latest CU iso, double click on it and run setup.exe and upgrade bypassing the problem. If you do get it working, first thing it will do is upgrade you anyway.

    @cereberus - but not before basic disk checks. If the disk is problematic, attempting an upgrade would likely make the problem worse. And Ceraway may wish to postpone the upgrade (which is possible, one way or another).

    I would also assume MS is phasing the roll-out, so might be 2-3 months to the Creator's Upgrade.

    I have tried cleaning with ccleaner and windows own cleaning tool, as well as running the this program. I will run a chkdsk later.

    Hi, have you done this- the first thing?
    Download and run Crystal Diskinfo (free) - Quick Good/Caution/Bad indication.

    If not good, no point in attempting anything else.
