    Unable to install windows updates via updater or manually

    Good day! I am stumped and at the end of my rope--- for a while now I have had some issues with windows not updating, plus the troubleshooter wont work.. (any of them). yesterday I downloaded the media creation tool and created an ISO image and reinstalled windows keeping my files and programs, I thought this would resolve the issues... no go! I now tried to download the updates and it wont install them that way either

    I have no clue how to proceed

    Hi mickeymontes

    Myself I would get personal data off, locate all license keys and then do a clean install. I know the work involved but if re-installing windows and keeping programs and data doesn't work then your options are getting limited.

    You might try a clean boot to see if third party software is some how involved.

    If you go the clean install I would delete existing partitions and let Windows create and assign as needed.

    Other member may have better solution.
