    Win8 Updates crashing

    Hey, I have just came from the Win7 forums as I have just upgraded to Windows 8.0,
    I have been trying to complete the updates that I have just done and each time I restart to complete them
    it crashes on 30%.

    I am really new to Win8 and I would love some help,

    I think i am having the same problem. upgraded to windows 8 and now it hangs at 30% when it is meant to be restarting. The weird scrolling circle completely stops and i have to hold down the power button.

    However i think the updates are actually working

    Just found this post, not exactly the same but worth a shot. It found a few problem on my machine
    You're quite welcome.

    Go to the Windows 8 section of this help page and do steps 1 and/or 2.

    Windows Update freezes when you install updates in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista

    I tried running the utility and it said it found problems it also said it fixed some problems though it still froze on reboot. Unfortunately im now out of updates for now. I have tried "SFC /scannow" that also fixed a few files. I have attempted to attach CBS.log. I'll include a link once its finished

    As promised my sfc /scannow log
