    Hi everyone. I have a little problem with windows update. When the automatic update finds new updates they appear to install but crucially when the computer is restarted they fail to take effect. the process fails and the computer reverts back to its previous state. . the windows update log says failed update against all but windows defender updates..
    I did use microsoft fixit. which not very helpfully told me
    "windows update data locations have changed - checked"..
    there was no option to fix...
    I then tried to run a scan via command prompt in admin but despite using
    sfc /scannow in every conceivable way (capitols etc) I get the error message.
    "sfc not recognised as an external or internal command"
    any ideas on where to go are what to do would be much appreciated.
