Windows 8 update problems/Windows 8.1 upgrade failure
Posted on 2013-10-24
I goIn t my new Win8 computer in 2/13. Since that time, it has not been able to load the KB2756872, KB2770917 and most recently KB2855336.
I have searched the web and tried multiple solutions, clearing crypto areas, running update fixits, uninstalling Panda virus/Kaspserky virus (used both at one time).
It continually gets to 99% configuration after restart and the says, unable to complete update, reverting. I thought upgrading to Win 8.1 would fix the problem, but it to got to the end of the install and failed, reverting to win 8.
I have no idea how to get this resolved. In addition, every 3-4 days the computer will slow down and eventually lockup if I do not restart it. It will sometimes complain that it is low on memory, but the computer has 6GB and looking at the task manager does not appear to give any indication of memory exhaustion and other than startup programs, not many applications are running.
I do have the Start8 program loaded to provide a Win7 appearanace as opposed to Win8.
