John, Sussex General home user

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Perhaps it would be OK if it worked.
Bad points:
This laptop works OK for a few days, until Windows Update runs, then I get a message:
"Failure configuring Windows features. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer."
This runs for hours and hours and does not change. Re-booting only brings this message up again.
The only way to to get the laptop working again is to carry out a factory reset, which is a PITA, but then the laptop works OK until Windows Update runs again and then we're back to the same problem.
I have researched this issue on the Internet, and there are 678,000 results from Google.
Please don't tell me to update to Windows 8.1, because the laptop won't do that until Windows Update has run, which brings me back to the same problem. A nightmare.
