Windows Update - Reset in Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Hi there! I don't seem to be able to add new threads to tip and tricks that I've learned, so will post here. If your having trouble with W10 up dates, there could be several reasons for that! I hope this helps. If it helps you I would like to hear from you!

Sometimes you may have an issue with Windows Update such as not being able to download or install updates, error messages, not being able to search for new updates, etc. These kind of issues can occur when the Windows Update database or components are corrupted, one or more services related to Windows Update are not running, etc.

Resetting the Windows Update components and history can usually solve these types of issues.

This tutorial will show how you how to reset and reregister Windows Update components and history in Windows 10.


You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to reset Windows Update.

PS MY thanks to Shawn Brink!
