This morning I had a notice to Install Updates on Shut Down for my Windows 7 machine.
Once I rebooted I would receive the error “Failure Configuring Windows Updates”. This seemed to be an infinite loop as I tried to restart the machine several times to configure the updates.
There are 2 steps I took to resolve the issue easily.
- Remove any memory cards from the built in card reader.
- Initiate the update manually from the Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Action Center
This solved the problem immediately and the system was updated and configured correctly
