Resolved: “Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer”

Operating System: Windows 8, 7

Last week, I was trying to install Windows update and it was constantly failing! Tried lot of solutions, but none of them worked. Atlast this method worked!

Here is the fix.

  1. Goto Start menu and type services.msc , and select services
  2. In the Services, check whether “Background Intelligent Transfer Service” startup type is “Automatic”. If not double click on it and change it to automatic.
  3. Next, check whether the “Windows Update” startup type is “Automatic“. For me it was “Manual”. Change it to automatic.
  4. Check for “Workstation” startup type. It should be “Automatic“.
  5. Restart windows and install updates. It worked for me. 🙂
