Reset Windows Updates In Windows 10

Sometimes while downloading updates for your Windows, you might experience certain unexpected problems. To fix them, reset Windows Updates in Windows 10.

Previously, jumping from one Windows to another was a very tiresome process. Going back 10-15 years from now, in most parts of the world one had to get a CD and then download the setup from there. It wasn’t even a smooth procedure as people who knew little about installing new Windows couldn’t do it on their own. This was something Microsoft thought about eradicating for good. So, with time developers came with the solution which we, users, have been using without any problems for a long time now, the automatic ability of the OS to upgrade to the new build.

It has indeed made our life much much easier however, there is still some discomfort with regards to how Windows Update is working under the hood.

These complaints include problems searching for new updates, not being able to download them etc. These can be a nuisance as these errors can cause problems with your computer.
