I set up a new HP PC (Pavilion) with Widows 10 Home preinstalled in September 2016. The anniversary edition automatically downloaded and installed in October so I am now running build 1607 Since the anniversary update was installed I have been unable to install any other cumulative updates. Download is fine but at the configuration stage all cumulative updates have reached 15% and then failed.
After numerous timeous attempts to retry I have used winshowhide and hidden the updates to avoid the switching on and switching off hassle when reattempts are made. I have tried various forums and manual downloads and installation all to no avail. All updates other than the cumulative have installed without problem.
I have found lenghty way to get into Hardware diagnostics but am a bit worried about losing data.
There is a number of computers that have the same problem and I am convinced it is a software problem not hardware. I think the Anniversary update either left bad data or failed to install a vital piece of data that is now preventing the configuration of the updates.
Sorry if I am a bit wimpish but I have a little knowledge and that can be a dangerous thing.
