    Windows 8 - updates problem

    Nearly everyday either on Shut Down or when starting the computer I get the following message:

    Installing Windows Updates -- it goes up to 15% then I get another message

    Failure to configure Windows Updates

    Preparing to retry

    It starts again but again goes up to 15% then yet another message

    Reverting Changes

    Eventually the computer then restarts.

    I have gone to search and typed Windows Updates then clicked on settings and looked in View Updates History.

    There must be about 40 files there that are listed as Failed.

    All are security updates.

    Can anyone please help? - What is causing this problem and how to resolve it.

    All help much appreciated

    The only way I've found to get rid of this problem is that I've now hidden the update

    Things like this is what keep me away from installing Windows 8 on my PC, I currently use 7 on there and my friends who went for 8 keep telling me horror stories about the OS, and even though most of them sound exaggerated it seems like I'll either be skipping it altogether or I'll wait a year until it's more stable. A friend said every day her computer forces an update and she has no choice but to restart it at work, although I have a hard time believing there is no option to postpone the update?

    windows 8 is the worst thing that could have happened to microsoft....really unstable with lots of glitches and errors,windows 7 is a heaven in comparison to it....my advice:stick to it
