Windows 7: failure configuring windows update

failure configuring windows update

Hi,

I was hoping if I could get some help with my issue regarding windows update. I have a HP laptop running on Windows 7 Pro. The problem it's having is that it keeps saying I have windows update to install. During the update installation, I received a message " failure configure windows update. revert changes...

It's been doing this many times. I keep restarting the laptop as well as installing the updates. I even tried to run sfc \scannow from safemode, this did not work either.

I wonder if there is any way of getting around this.

Thank you in advance

Last week, I got a critical update......and it installs. But when I start my computer now it says 'configuring update 0%' but it never proceeds to any other percentage, then it rolls back to previous version. I'm trying to figure out why this is happening.

I use a Dell all-in-one computer, like this one......
Inspiron One 19 Desktop Details | Dell

Every day I have to sit through the 0% message until it runs into the same problem it did the day before.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!
