Failure Configuring Windows Updates on Windows 7

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
