Checking for the latest version of windows updating software loop

In case you are not familiar with it, WSUS is Microsoft's free patch management tool. If you don't know the difference then you don't do Windows support.

I have tried sfc and chkdsk with no luck and am not sure where else to go other than reformatting which I really dont want to have to do.

Have also tried system restore but its saying I have no restore points even though I know I have had some previously.

Windows 10 is constantly receiving updates, some big and some small, usually without a hitch.

Someone on his blog actually asked if the extension was necessary. After nuking the old folder, run the update again and all is well but it takes a long time to go through that long download and update process. I have found that the easiest way to fix a Microsoft Update problem is to switch back to Windows Update from the "Change Setting" option on the left-side menu.

I have a windows 7 machine that is stuck in some kind of update loop.

Upon booting the computer says its configuring windows updates only to hit a failure and then go through "reverting changes" it says here for around 20 hours so far as I've been timing it.I have tried booting to save mode but hit the same loop before I can get in. Is there a way to uninstall the updates through the cmd?Microsoft Windows is the most widely used desktop operating system in the world. For many of us, supporting it is how we make our living.One of the endearing and annoying features of this ubiquitous OS is the monthly patch update process. It just kind of works in the background when you're not looking. I'll install the updates on a non-critical server during the week to test them. But for the workstations it does a pretty good job - most of the time.However, there are times when it rears its ugly head and demands attention. It pushes them out after I approve them and then installs them late at night, usually with an automatic reboot when completed.In our company we run WSUS - Windows Server Update Services - to keep all our Windows desktops updated. I have trained my users over the years to ALWAYS leave their computers on to accommodate the patch process, the weekly AV scans and so that I can get into their workstations any time I need to work on them in the evening. Microsoft likes WSUS because it cuts down on the number of users hitting the Windows Update site. Microsoft has been slowly moving everyone over to Microsoft Update instead of Windows Update.
