Windows update fails often – 6G of files! What to do?
Hello! Over a year ago Windows update had one that with a Bitdefender fix that is only on the Ultimate Version of Windows, not my Pro version. I let it try to install dozens of times then “hid” it.
Since then most Windows Updates will not install automatically. If I run WU and install them one at a time (25 min each) I could get some of them to install.
Now I’ve got 6G of uninstalled updates showing in the disk cleanmgr System area. I’m expecting that perhaps some of them may install if I show them. But should I? Could they be rolled up into one of the recent updates I “manually, one at a time” installed? How could I know which, if any, I would want to spend any amount of time to recover? Thanks!
Which windows version is this? Could you please provide the screenshot of cleanmgr where it is showing the list of 6GB uninstalled updates.
To view which updates are installed, follow the following steps.
- Go to “control panel” and then go to “programs & features”
- Here in the left side pagne you’ll get an option “View installed updates”, click on that. It will show you all the installed updates.
