    windows 8.1 freezes during updates


    Whenever I attempt to install updates for windows 8.1 my computer freezes during the update. I have to do a hard restart and it takes a while for windows to restart. I have tried the Microsoft Fixit.
    This troubleshoots the update problem.
    Fixit says Problems found
    Problem installing recent update Not Fixed
    Check for missing or corrupt file Dtecte

    I gives me no further information.
    I have run virus scans and malware scans. All are clean.
    Any suggestions as to fix this problem without a clean install or system restore?
    Thanks

    Did you try with antivirus and other security programs temporarily disabled ?
