Windows Updates causing System re-install

  jammyjon99 11:01 10 Apr 2019

Windows 10 updates are failing, and I have to re-install from a previous System backup. This has happened 3 times, and I wonder if a Forum member could advise how to prevent this?

Hi jammyjohn , this is the easiest answer to your problem

First you need to go to windows updates to try and download or install an update or patch etc , wait for it to go wrong and write down the kb number of the failed item.

Now go to the website on the link below.

click here top right type the number of the item you cant download or install , don't forget kb in front of the number , example kb123.

You will now see a full list of all the different versions of the update you need , just make sure you get the correct one for you op sys.
