    hi i reset my pc back to factory settings complete delete of personal files.
    Problem is windows updates download and install, but when restarting pc , installing stops at 15% then message failure configuring windows updates reverting changes appears.
    I have followed posts about deleting files in folder c/windows software distribution but still have same problem.
    I have tried to installing just a 1 updates at a time, 1 update installs, but when restarting pc somehow it tries to configurate 116 updates, even tho i only downloaded and installed 1.
    any help would be great , thanks

    Since you have so many updates it might be worth trying the following tool and see if it works or not. If not, then we can try other options
