depredating - Checking for latest version of windows updating software loop

If you’ve got your own stories to share of Windows Update errors or your own helpful tips, please be sure to share them in the comments section.

Before beginning any troubleshooting steps, ensure that there’s definitely a problem with Windows Update.

An upgrade adds new features and replaces existing system files with new ones.

We show you how it works and what you can customize., some big and some small, usually without a hitch.

But problems can happen: the download getting stuck, the update refusing to install, or the system being caught up in a restart loop.

It’s important though to give the update a decent amount of time to finish.

Depending on what is being done to the system this could take a few hours.

All too frequently, it’s followed by another attempt to install the cumulative update, and another failure, with the same error code.

Once you’re back on your feet, you should try to figure out if any of your files are locked.

There have been reports that some updates take over three hours to download, perhaps due to a dodgy server or a temperamental Internet connection.

Windows has some great features, but like any operating system, it brings its share of issues with every new version. It’s tough to predict how your PC will behave after it has gone through one.

If you leave it alone and check back later, the installer would have proceeded to the next step.
