I spent over an hour trying to make the automatic updates for Windows 8 work. My pc would download and install the updates. Then it would try to configure the updates and at a certain point, it would give me this message: "Failure configuring Windows Update, reverting.." I found the fix after doing some research. I'm sure others would encounter the same problem so I'm posting this information to spare users the pain of looking for a fix. In order to run msconfig.exe, you have to get into safe mode and type msconfig.exe at the command prompt. To do this, try hitting F8 repeatedly when you power up. If F8 does not work, try holding "Shift" key and press F8 repeatedly when you power on.
Remember to run your antivirus software after ujpdating to see if you have inadvertently downloaded a virus. A side note, Windows 8 cannot play your dvd unless you download the Media Center Pack. If you have Windows 8 pro, you can get the product key free at Microsoft until the end of Jan. 2013.
