Windows Update KB4013429 keeps failing. Windows 10.

Windows Update KB4013429 keeps failing in Windows 10.

It gets all the way done, restarts the computer two times, and then says that it has failed.

I have tried the whole process 4 times.

I really don't want to reset/refresh my computer if I can help it.

I've tried using disk cleanup and removed setup files.

I've tried downloading the update standalone from

That doesn't work either.

Here are my computer specs:

Windows 10 Pro

64 bit

Dell Inspiron 5458 Signature Edition

Intel i7-5500U CPU @ 2.40GHz

12GB DDR3 1600

Touch Screen

Display info:

Display: Intel HD Graphics 5500

Render: NVIDIA GeForce 920M (Render-Only Display Device)

Thank you


I want to thank everyone for their help; however, I could not get any of the suggestions to work, and the amount of time I was spending on it was too great.

I clean-installed windows and the problem was fixed. Now to install all my applications again...

And again, thank you.
