Hello I have a windows 8.1 64 bit system that hasn't taken a update in a few weeks, it has 56 updates to that needs to be done, if I choose update then reboot or just update from windows after the reboot the system sits a min then it says reverts updates changes back ...... I ran malware bytes and it clean ....  I can't get the system in safemode to try to run malware bytes in safemode every time I reboot and hit F8 nothing happens .... any suggestions I been trying to update the system for a few days.... Ohh also I did a system restore back to 11-26 and that still didn't help...

Here's the first thing I'd try to reset the Updates cache:

in elevated Command prompt type: net stop "windows update" and press Enter.
In File Explorer delete folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
Reboot and check for and Install updates.

Also try:

1. Windows Update Readiness tool:   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

2. Reset Windows Update Components:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

See if these things help.

Malwarebytes shouldn't be run in safe-mode anyway. So that isn't a problem.

Try selecting only a few updates at a time, not all at once. Start with the oldest first (the date published should show when you select an update).
