    Windows 8 Failed to update reverting changes error


    I have a Acer Windows 8 computer and its stuck on reverting update changes and restarting. It says "Failed configuring Windows Updates Reverting changes" then restarts and then does that again. I cannot go to the desktop. How do I fix this?
