Removing “failed” updates from update history list


Removing “failed” updates from update history list

It is possible to remove “failed” update from your Installed Updates List

but I can tell you how to remove “all” updates from Update History following these steps:

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service:

  • Start -> Run -> (type in) services.msc -> Click on [OK]
  • Double-click Automatic Updates -> Click on Stop (Stopping the service will take a moment)

2. Delete this folder:

  • C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution

3. Start the Automatic Updates service

  • Start -> Run -> (type in) services.msc > Click on [OK]
  • Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Start (Starting the service will take a moment)
