Problems with Windows 11 Updates

John Nork 231 Reputation points

I am having ongoing problems with applying Windows 11 updates to my computer. Is there an option with Windows 11 to replace the operating system files, but to retain the installed programs and associated data files? What I would like to do is to reinstall Windows 11 from scratch but to preserve the programs and data files (such as Word, PDF, etc.)?

Thanks very much for any assistance you can offer.
