Windows 7 updates won't configure

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok. So starting like two days ago, my computer shows the little update icon on the shut down button, and when I shut down it installs 12 updates. When I start my computer back up it tries to configure the updates for like 6 or 7 minutes, then finally it tells me the windows updates failed to configure, and goes to the login screen. Anyone have a clue as to what's wrong?

Did u guys check that you have the correct time? Happened to me once. Updates wouldn't install because of the wrong time.

Stop the Windows Update service and delete the SoftwareDistribution folder from C:Windows. Start the Windows Update service and check for new updates, then try to install them again.

Procedure verbatim from support.microsoft.com

Before you resolve this problem, clear the Microsoft Internet Explorer cache. To do this, following these steps:

On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options.
On the General tab, click Delete Files in the Temporary Internet Files section.
Click OK, and then click OK again.

To resolve this error, recreate the database that stores Windows Update information or Microsoft Update information on your computer. To do this, follow these steps:

Click Start, click Run type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: net stop wuauserv
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: cd /d c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

Where c:\Windows is the folder where Windows is installed.
At the command prompt, type the following command including the quotes, and then press ENTER: rd /S /Q DataStore
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: net start wuauserv.
Exit the command prompt window.
