I have 13 Windows updates that will not install. I have tried to install them manually, and have also tried fixit with no success. Is there a way to stop these updates from trying to install (and subsequently failing to install every day)?
juz fix the windows update failed problem and update it again...
Control Panel>System and Security>Windows Update>Change settings
Over there, there will be a drop down under important updates section. choose'let me decide which updates to download and install.'
could you uninstall the failed ones? this can fix the problem.
You have to go into Windows Update and right click on the update you do not want Windows to install. You will be given the option to Hide the update and this will stop it from trying to install again.
turn the windows update off. this will not install any updates!
Windows sometimes breaks the Update mechanism. You could just disable Windows Update completely, as you won't be getting any new updates until the existing ones install properly.
On the other hand, this is a good resource for fixing Windows Update Problems:
Download A software "windows updates downloader" from windowsupdatesdownloader.com This Will Allow You To Download And Save The Updates Manually.
After that You Can Disable Your automatic updates And Download Updates With windows updates downloader
Right click on the update you DONT want installed and select 'Hide This Update'. You wont be bothered with it again.
I also think this one, but looks like he want to install it, but it is always failed to install..
Go to windows update, choose the option to pick which updates to install and de-select the updates that are giving you problems.
Start -> search for gpedit.msc or search Run, select it, and then type gpedit.msc
Now drill down as follows: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update
Double click on “No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations”
In the dialogue box that comes up, select “Enabled” and click “OK”
