Failure configuring Windows Updates. Reverting changes.

This is the first time this has happened to me.(Windows 7 Home Premium). I have been onto the Microsoft support page and followed various "cures" all to no avail. I have been into control panel and gone through the windows troubleshooting advice and it tells me that it has found and fixed problems with my Windows update and installed 9 updates. When I click to restart I get the same failure message at startup.It seems to recycle the startup procedure 3 times before it eventually gets to my desktop page, and when I look ar my update history there is a long list of failed installations. Any ideas, please?

That may be the reason due to the Internet connection as far as i concern. Better try your network settings or try to do manual updates.

MrDigital01 it has nothing to do with the Internet connection or network settings, and there is no good reason to drag up an old thread from 2 months ago.

Since I first posted, I have tried numerous suggestions, all without success. My "solution" was to elect to install the updates manually leaving out the offending one (KB2685811). Not very satisfactory but it seems the only way that I can get Windows to start normally.

After a frustrating day with this, I finally worked my way out and it was pretty easy. I had 60 updates and tried numerous times to install them, always getting the "reverting changes" problem. Here's what I did to get out of it:

  1. Changed Windows update from automatic to download and let me choose which updates to install.

  2. Started at the top of the list of 60 and installed just the first 10 (left the first 10 checked and unchecked the rest). Did the install, rebooted, everything installed find, no problem. Did the same with the second and third groups of 10...no problem.

  3. Fourth group of 10 gave me the "reverting" error, so I went back in and installed the first 4...no problem. Then the last 6...reverting issue again. Did the last five, leaving off the dreaded KB 2647753, and all worked great.

  4. Installed the rest in groups of 10 leaving off KB 2647753 till the end. No prob.

  5. Once everything was installed, I did KB 2647753 by itself, and it installed fine.

  6. Verified that everything was up to date, shut down, took a hot shower, and watched some Netflix.
