Updating do not turn power off

Type "net stop wuauserv" and hit Enter, then follow that with "net stop bits" and hit Enter again.Back in Windows proper, navigate to the C:\ Windows\ Software Distribution folder, and delete everything you find therein.Speaking of running smoothly, however, these updates don't always do that.

The first point to make is that interfering with updates that aren't actually stuck can cause a host of problems, so you want to make sure they really are stuck.Go through the wizard, then choose 'Show more restore points' to see all your available options.Pick a time and date, then complete the wizard to go back to how Windows was configured at that point (and hopefully solve your update issues at the same time).Operating system updates are a necessary evil, like taxes and car MOTs: they can be a real chore, but they're essential for a happy and peaceful life.

You might not care for Windows updates, but they keep you protected, squash nasty bugs and generally keep the OS running as smoothly as possible.The process doesn't affect your personal files or programs, but it may not be available to you depending on how Windows was originally set up.If Windows' own troubleshooter doesn't work (see step 4) then you can try and carry out the same process yourself manually: stopping the Windows Update service, deleting the temporary files it's created, then starting Windows Update again.Windows 10 has actually streamlined the update process, so you should be seeing fewer errors.
