Expert:  michelleclive replied 2 years ago.
run the windows update manually and when it fails it will show you errors on the screen note down the error and let me know.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have just shut the computer down and it is installing updates, it will then normally tell me it has failed to configure them and I guess I will then get access to the error code?
Expert:  michelleclive replied 2 years ago.
yes that is correct. try to disable your firewall and then try to run the update.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK. It is taking a while as there are 19 updates.
Expert:  michelleclive replied 2 years ago.
There is an optional Remote Connect Service - Quick ResolutionRemote access is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee (£10). It is 100% safe which will allow me directly work on the problem and can be fixed quickly, you can sit back and watch your screen while i fix it for you. Let me know if you need the additional service or else we can continue with the service you have already opted for.let me know if you want to opt for remote assistance

Sorry about the delay - it's still installing updates. Presuming this fails again, I would love you to take me over and sort it out, the intricacies of computers are really beyond me!
