    Each time I try to update my laptop it goes up to 100 percent and stops then says unable to complete updates , undoing changes. I’ve trouble troubled the updates and the problem still persists.

    I recently came across this script and it has been working well for me with these issues. It resets all the windows update components. If you prefer not to use it we can walk you though some manual steps.

    First

    Let me know if any or what errors it reports

    Next try the following from Elevated Command Prompt

    Sc Stop wuauserv - hit enter

    Rd /s /q %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution - hit enter

    Restart computer and try to update
