Windows Updates stall on "Configuring 0%"


When selecting the option to “Install updates and then shut down your computer” Or trying to apply updates manually, you find that when it comes to configure the updates it stalls on the message “Configuring Updates 0%”. After a while, it may say the update failed.


The Windows Update service may have corrupt or missing .dll files causing it to fail when it comes to installing the updates.
