    Default Installing new features fails in Windows 10

    Hi All,

    So after my recent upgrade to Windows 10, about 2 days in, Windows automatically tries to install new features as it says in the notification pop up in the task bar "Installing new features" and then subsequently another message pops up saying that if failed to install the new features and gives an option to see more details.



    Clicking this option brings up a blank PC settings window. I've searched this on google and found topics and threads only on the fail of the actual upgrade to Windows 10. This happens several times throughout the day, every day. Any thoughts anyone?

    Thanks in advance!

    Open C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete the contents of the folder.

    How to do it is explained in Point 11 here: Windows Updates fail to install in Windows 10 / 8 / 7

    Now try again.

    Hope this helps.

    PS: See this if your Settings app is give you trouble.
