Windows 7: Computer Caught in Update Loop

08 Sep 2018   #1

Computer Caught in Update Loop

My desktop computer is caught in an update loop.

It is a Windows 10, but I think this should not be a critical issue and this web forum for WIndows 7 systems might provide some insight in how to solve this issue.

Every once in a while, my custom desktop computer insists that it must make updates. It is very demanding. It asks if it can do it right away, wait an hour or it sometimes offers me to schedule a time. I have managed to make some screen shots and the next time it goes through this process, I will make a detailed record.

Well, here is the problem. It fails the update and says it is restoring the system to a previous point. The trouble is that it does this all the time lately. It demands that an update is necessary, then fails, then restores.

So my question is this. How can I do the update and/or stop these periodic system updates? Is there a setting somewhere for this.

In the interest of full disclosure, in case you google this, I am going to ask this question around the internet to get a wide range of responses. So don't be surprised if you google for this answer and fine this identical question on another web forum specializing in Windows System Help. But, of course, I will respond to all of them individually. In the past, when I asked a few web forums for help, jerks tend to make a deal about the fact that I have asked for many opinions. We are not dating. So don't feel that I am bring unfaithful.

It seems that my Windows Update is stuck in a loop of getting the updates. I tried using a diagnostic executable available on Microsoft's website to fix the issue but it apparently did nothing. Does anyone know any other possible solutions?
