    Dear All,

    I did a refresh on my laptop, HP PRO BOOK 440 G0.

    I did download the and run WIndowsupdatediagnostic tool, its showing all errors fixed but still the issue is persisting.

    Thanks,

    How many updates are the there? Trying to update too many at a time can be painfully slow.

    Ouch! That many at one time is likely to fail and take a very long time especially if it has to revert changes. Suggest 5 at a time. Would be much quicker in the long run.

    Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter again:
    Troubleshoot problems with installing updates - Windows Help

    Windows key + X , select Command Prompt (Admin) and type sfc /scannow prompt, if it fixes all your system file corruption try to install the updates.
