Select the driver and click Uninstall. Then reboot your system and try to boot into Windows again. If you still experience the same issue, repeat the process until the driver is no longer listed under device manager.

Fix 6: Resetting Parts of Windows Update
If you are facing problems like “error code 800F0A80”, “windows update failed”, “update failed” etc., it could be because of the following reasons:
1. You might have installed some third party software which blocks the installation of the windows update component. In such cases, you need to uninstall those programs.
2. If there is no third party program installed, you need to check whether the computer is running out of space.
3. If the problem persists even after uninstalling the third party software and checking the free disk space, you can try to run the repair utility.
4. If the above steps don’t work, you can follow the instructions mentioned here.
5. Finally, you can contact our technical support team via email at We’ll help you resolve the issue.

Fix 7: Manually download Windows Update
Microsoft offers an online tool where you will find the latest update codes of all the available versions of the operating system. You will see the list of all the available updates. Then, select the one you want to download and follow the instructions.
If you want to download the update manually, you will need to know what update code you are looking for. There are three different types of updates: cumulative updates, security updates and feature updates. Cumulative updates include fixes for bugs that could potentially affect your computer. Security updates fix vulnerabilities in software such as Internet Explorer, Adobe Reader, Java Runtime Environment and Flash Player. Feature updates add new features to the operating system.
You will have to download each update individually. Once you have downloaded the update, you will need to install it manually. This process varies depending on the type of update you are installing. For example, if you are installing a security update, you will have access to the installation wizard only once you restart your computer. However, if you are installing an application update, you will always have access to the wizard.
To make sure everything goes smoothly, we recommend you prepare your PC beforehand. Make sure you have enough space on your hard disk and free up some memory. Also, make sure you have installed all the drivers needed for your hardware components. Finally, make sure you have backed up your data.
