Solved Windows will not update darn near anything after a refresh

[DEL]Hey guys, so about a month ago I needed to do a refresh on my Asus Laptop which had Windows 8.1 (64bit). I bought this computer back in September of 2013. It was a simple refresh that saved my files and such. The reason I had to refresh was for some odd unknown reason, League of Legends would not go to the login screen, as it would fail. I tried everything to fix that problem, and nothing worked. So, I did a refresh.

Now, I have Windows 8, and my updates wont install at all. I have tried to do a windows update repair and it doesn't fix all the problems, tried to do a clean boot install. Nothing works as of right now. My computer restarts every 2 days and fails.

"Failed Configuring Windows Updates - Reverting Changes" < something of that sort. Every time. I checked if any of the windows updates have gone through, and almost all of them have not.

I would appreciate any help, as I would like to get my computer back to its original state.[/DEL]



EDIT: All you have to do is update to Windows 8.1 through the Windows Store, and it fixes this problem. Figured it out!

What do you mean post all logs from the logs folder on the desktop?

The bat files will create a folder called Logs on the Desktop.

In that folder you should have the following txt files..

-DISM.txt
-CBS.txt
-Win8WU.txt
-ReportingEvents.txt
-sfcdetails.txt

I was asking you to post them so I could look at whats happening.

All I have in the logs folder is Win8WU.txt

I did the full DISM.bat running as admin, and after a reboot, still no ReportingEvents.txt

I have everything else though.

Edit: How do I post them on here, especially when the logs are extremely long.

Collect.bat will copy some files into the Logs folder for you. You will need to run it as Admin though.

Sometimes the files are to large (ex. CBS.txt), so you won't be able to post them unless you use a site like mediafire.com

How to attach files:

Step 1) Click the Go Advanced button below the quick reply box.
Step 2) Click Manage Attachments.
Step 3) Click Browse > choose the file to attach
Step 4) Click Upload

It looks like one of the updates is stuck. First I will attempt to let Windows finish the job by itself. If this doesn't work then we can move on to removing things.

Step 1) Press :winkey: + S to open Search > Type: Powershell
Step 2) Right click Windows Powershell > Click Run as Administrator
Step 3) Type each command as follows.. Press enter after each.

Command 1) start-transcript c:\PS.txt -append
Command 2) get-bitstransfer | resume-bitstransfer
Command 3) get-bitstransfer | complete-bitstransfer
Command 4) stop-transcript

This will create a log file called PS.txt at C:\

Please attach it to your next post.

Hmm, the transcript doesn't show any output from the commands. I will need to work on that. It does however look like the commands were typed correctly, so that's a plus. :)

Try to restart the computer now, after you login again open Windows Update to see if all updates have been installed.
