    “delete the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder”
    How do I do that? I see a lot of directories in the download folder.
    What is the command?

    I followed all the steps and was successful but when I reboot it through safe mode it is stuck on Windows Logo what to Do?

    I did get these steps to work, but not to fix the problem. First of all, my C drive was under H for some reason, so I had to figure that out. You can check the folders in a drive by typing “dir H:\” for example, and it should be obvious which one actually has the correct folders. For me, X only had a couple of folders, and not the files I wanted to delete. Hope that helps someone some day.

    After that, I was able to reboot to safe mode consistently, but never did Windows ever show the message “couldnt complete the updates, undoing changes.” Now, Windows takes longer on the automatic repair startup as if it has found something it didn’t before, but still does not boot except to the repair bit, and safe mode does not remove the updates.

    Oh my good grief thank you so much. This is exactly what I needed. None of the YouTube videos cover cancelling problematic updates.

    For more context that maybe others will relate to:
    I think one of my updates included an upgrade to Windows 10 version 21H1

    I also think this problem might have been caused by a Windows speedup app by “Chris Titus Tech” that i had applied

  5. You are a life saver Nick. Let me know how I can buy you a cup of coffee
