if you install updates it restarts then when it says welcome, a few seconds later it goes to "preparing to configure updates" then it says failure to configure windows reverting back

You have to change permissions to have ability delete pending.xml
Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums

alternatively you can do this in console too

In comments is also instruction how to make script which do that automatically :

Paste to notepad

Quote:
@echo off
cd C:\Windows\WinSxS
echo Taking ownership of pending.xml
takeown /f C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml
echo;
echo;
echo Granting you permissions on pending.xml
cacls C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml /G %Username%:F
echo;
echo;
echo Attempting to copy pending.xml as pendingbackup.xml
copy C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml C:\Windows\WinSxS\pendingbackup.xml
echo;
echo;
echo Deleting pending.xml
del C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml
Save as>>Save as ALL FILES>>FIX.BAT

Next right click on FIX.BAT file and choose "Run as administrator" and next restart computer

1.Run cmd.exe as administrator (right click on cmd.exe and choose "run as administrator") and type:

sfc /scannow

2.Download & run Readiness Tool Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2

Next attache to post following files to diagnose:

C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
C:\Windows\Logs\CheckSur.log


additonally create report from your system

Start>>Search>>msinfo32>>File>>Export: save as any name

and attache it to post too.If these files are too big to attache here
