If your Windows 8 updates do not download, I’ve got something for you. If you experience weird Windows 8 Update errors or you simply get stuck on updating at 0% then try this:

  1. Bring up the Search Charm by moving your mouse to either corner of the right side of the monitor
    • Alternatively, you can press Windows key + W on the keyboard
  2. Search for troubleshooting
  3. On the left side of the panel, select View all
  4. Click Windows Update


  1. Follow the instructions

Other things to try if the troubleshooter doesn’t work:

  • Go to services.msc and make sure Windows Updates starts automatically instead on manually
  • Scan your hard drive for errors and run a disk defrag
