.msu updates throw error 0xc8000222. Windows Update not working.

Question: .msu updates throw error 0xc8000222. Windows Update not working.

So I realized I had an issue when I was prompted by some software to install a hotfix for windows that fixes an issue with exceptions.

I downloaded the hotfix but a prompt popped up almost immediately giving me a 0xc8000222 error.

A simple search lead me to a simple solution: run Windows Update.

When I go to run Windows Update, however, it tells me that the service is not running. I've verified it is, including stopping it and starting it again with a reboot.

There apparently was an update given by Microsoft to fix the Windows Update issue but, of course, it's released as an msu so it fails with the 0xc8000222 error.

I haven't had a chance to run chkdsk yet (I can't spare the time as this is my work machine and have things to do today) though there are no other issues with my system so I find it unlikely. I did run the SFC tool though, the output log can be access here.

Any ideas on how to progress would be great. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: .msu updates throw error 0xc8000222. Windows Update not working.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have tried to resolve using Malwarebytes - nothing was detected.
I have tried to manually update the MS Sec Essentials database - it will not run the update.
Windows Updates won't run as it says the services aren't running - BITS & Windows update services both say they are running under Services.

I also tried the TDSS rootkiller repair - (have attached the log)
This is a DHCP system - there are no manual DNS entries (I have checked).
There are no extranesous entries in the hosts file.

I know I'm infected somewhere & I could really use an expert's help.

Answer:Windows Update failed with error 0xc8000222, Service not running

Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

CHKDSK C: /R

and hit the Enter key.
You will be told that the drive is locked,
and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, press Enter, and then reboot.

The CHKDSK will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) -
then run the SFC.

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

Answer:Solved: Error 0xc8000222

Give This a try

If your computer is having problems finding and installing operating system updates, try using a Windows Update troubleshooter to fix the problem. It makes sure that your computer is connected to the Internet, and checks to see whether your network adapter and Windows Update services are running correctly.

Open the Windows Update troubleshooter by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under System and Security, click Fix problems with Windows Update.

PC was infected with XP Internet Security 2011. The Rogue Virus superimposed it's window over everything. It blocked MS Security Essentials and Malwarebytes from running and prevented IE8 and Firefox from being able to open. I downloaded a program called VipreRescue which is a full fledged AV program with current definitions. I loaded it to a thumb drive and ran it from the command line. It got the virus but afterward I could not open executables as everything asked for what program to open with. The problem was a corrupt rundll32.exe file in c:\windows\system32. A File Association fix from DonKnox.com fixed that problem and allowed the executables to run. I was able to download MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes and their latest updates.Both show the PC free of Viruses, spyware, etc. As far as I can tell, the only remaining problems were that Windows Update will not work properly even after reinstallation and Automatic Updates Shows in the Control Panel as being "On" but it does not show up in running services. Neither Windows Update or Automatic Updates work. There may be other stuff not working but, one step at a time. Any help with this will be gladly accepted with gratitude.

Answer:Windows Update and Automatic Updates not working

I had the same problem after taking out Antivirus Antimalware 2011. It was caused by the corruption of the registry key for windows update.

Go here:

http://www.techiecorner.com/112/error-number-0x80070424-in-windows-update-solution/

It will explain it. You hit the 'run', type this into the command line:

Hi,
I have been having some recurring problems with the attempts to install some automatic windows updates.

Security Update for Microsoft Office Acess 2007
Security Update for Microsoft Office Outlook Junk Email Filter

I am not able to install these updates, maybe any other updates in general. After attempting the install the following install window says, "Windows Update encountered an unknown error." Next to it an error code 80070643. Microsoft provides a solution to the problem, by re-installing Microsoft NET. Framework. They also provide a link to the program NET. Framework cleanup tool that enables you to uninstall NET. Framework, and it's components.

I followed Microsoft's instructions to solve the issue, though I've been put at a standstill. I have used the NET. Framework Cleanup tool to uninstall NET. Framework and it's components (states that it uninstalls all versions, 1.1 SP1 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.) Then afterwards instructed to reinstall NET. Framework, specifically in an order, 3.5 then, 1.1, then 1.1 SP1. I start with 3.5, then as the installation starts it says that to contiunue installation I must turn off or on windows features in the Control Panel. I do so and turn off all Windows features. Then continue and it again states to turn off features in the Control Panel.

I wasn't able to continue the process, and I am also concerned that this is the same error that made me unable to install Microsoft Security Essentials, (as t... Read more

Hi there! I've been having a few problems lately with my computer. First of all, I have Tor on my computer, and it wont connect. Tor keeps asking for a control password that I never set in the first place. It never used to do this, and it just started a few days ago. Also, I have Bitdefender 10, and it wont update. It keeps giving me the message "Could not write new files to the disk. Please make sure that you have enough free disk space." I have plenty of free disk space, so this can't be true. Also, for the longest time, I haven't been able to download Windows Updates from the Microsoft website. It prompts me to install the ActiveX control, and I accept, and hte page will stop loading and just stays at the message "Checking if your computer has the latest version of Windows updating software for use with the website?" It wont go past this point.

I tried a Panda ActiveScan, but it stopped at 14% at the file, "C:\Program Files\Canon\Zo...meraWindow_Proxy.dll" It discovered this much though,

Hello there.

I have a Samsung Notebook here that shipped with Win 7 64 HP SP1. It was working fine but it was somewhat slow, so I've upgraded the storage to SSD and reinstalled Windows with the DVD that came with it (Which is basically a Windows install disk, it's not a recovery media). The installation went smoothly, however, I have experienced problems with Update in the past that were solved by applying the KB3102810 and also installing the newest WUA, in this case KB3138612 from March.

After installing them, and installing all the drivers, I happily proceeded to do a full system update. However, I didn't install all of them at once since in the past that caused problems. I've selected some updates, installed, rebooted, then installed the others except for the Internet Explorer and the optional and recommended ones.

I then Installed MS Office 2010, and applied the updates to it (using Windows Update), followed by the installation of IE11 but it was installed from the website (which I believe basically just installs the updates).

Everything went fine and on the next reboot the system was 'up to date' according to the Windows Update (green shield with a checkmark).

At that point I've disabled automatic updating ("Check but let me choose" option). However, I think some of the last updates caused some problem because now a few minutes after booting wuauserv will start to hog a CPU core. I guess it's because it starts to search for updates and somehow the WUA got... Read more

Hey everybody! 
 
I'm in the process of overhauling our old family computer to run games and not much else (and not high-end ones, either).  I've removed bloatware, slimmed down the program list, updated all the drivers, etc.  Then I ran into a snag.  Windows Update won't progress past the "Checking for updates" phase and actually install anything.  It last updated in May 2015.
 
From following the advice over at the Microsoft Support area regarding Windows Update not working, I came up with two error codes: 0x80070057 and 0x80080005.  A search of these codes led me to this page (not advertising here, just full disclosure on how I've tried to solve my problem):  https://www.techjunkie.com/fix-error-0x80070057/
 
Running sfc /scannow gave me the error message of "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log."  I couldn't open the CBS.log, so I moved on to the next step. 
 
Running SFCFix gave me the following report:

From following the advice over at the Microsoft Support area regarding Windows Update not working, I came up with two error codes: 0x80070057 and 0x80080005.  A search of these codes led me to this page (not advertising here, just full disclosure on how I've tried to solve my problem):  https://www.techjunkie.com/fix-error-0x80070057/
 
Running sfc /scannow gave me the error message of "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log."  I couldn't open the CBS.log, so I moved on to the next step. 
 
Running SFCFix gave me the following report:

Answer:Windows Update Error - Stuck on "Checking for updates"

So... have you removed all of the updates and tried again, as a troubleshooting step? This would be a start, but only do so when you are not going to be browsing around. Until the updates are installed again, this computer will be risky to use due to the outstanding number of vulnerabilities over the past year-and-a-half. Let me know if this works or if you have done this already.

Windows update stopped working after I restored the OS to the factory setup (using the built in one key recovery button). Windows appears to be working fine, but I cannot seem to install any updates (manually or through windows update).

Trying to install SP1 (for example) from the internet gives the error "Error_Install_Failure(0x80070643)".

Trying to update using windows update yields the following:
"To check for updates you must first install an update for windows update"
When I press "Install now", It tries to install this update, and comes back with the error "Windows could not search for new updates Code 80070643"

- I have tried using the Microsoft fixit related to this code, and the suggestions on the following two threads:

Hello,

I've been trying for hours to fix a problem with the Windows Update on my laptop. I run Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64.

Lately, I noticed that the automatic update is always installing the same 4 updates and this has been going for 2 months. So I tried to search for the solution on the Internet. I've been doing Windows Fix it, and some other stuff that I can find online but none worked. I did clean boot and disabling the Anti Virus (Kaspersky), it didn't solve the problem. I have also tried restoring the system back to the last time the update was working normally. Still, every time I click check for update, it always produce the red sign with the message:
Windows could not search for new updates
Error found: Code 80080005

Could anybody please help me solve this problem? I am concerned about the security of my computer now.
I have attached the Windows Update log files in case it is required.
Thank you in advance.

Hello -

I seem to be having a snowball effect of errors with my computer. It all started when I realized I couldn't find/install new Windows Updates. I hate to say it, but I went a year without installing new updates. I would always get the error code 80072efd. I tried following Microsoft's help and was able to download and install like 70 updates a few days ago. Since then, I have been unable to use Windows Updates again and am still receiving the same error. I don't want to post too many problems in this one post so I figured we'd just start with this one. Since it seems to be the start of all my computer problems anyway hopefully if I can fix this the other errors with get fixed as well.

BTW, I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium, SP 1.

Thanks in advance!

The last time it successfully ran was late August and every attempt since fails with Error No: 80096001

Hello

I am struggling to make my windows update run properly.
There are 3 important updates that I cant make it work, they are:
1- 2 of them concerning .NET framework 4 (KB2742595 and KB2789642)
2- Service Pack 1 (KB976932)

For the .NET framework 4 updates: windows actually do update them and says they are sucessfully updated, but when I check for updates again, they are still there. The SP1 is a little different, it does install normally, but when PC logs off to continue installation, it never goes through 14%. Then it restarts, says failure and it rolls back, aborting the update, so when I check windows updates again, if shows SP1 failure, error 0x80071a90.
I've tried many different things, like manual update, safe mode or clean startup config, none work.
Also, I downloaded SURT and installed it, but it seems nothing really happened.
Following Windows Update Posting Instructions
1- installed SURT, but seems nothing happened
2- SFC scan is normal; error-checking tool is also ok.
3- No errors appear on that screen. I will only find the error code for SP1 if I click on "View update history"
4- CBS.zip attached

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

EDIT = couldn't attach zip file because it's size is 20mb.

Answer:Windows Update - won't install SP1 and other updates- error 0x80071a90

I just found out that when I open 'msconfig' , there are many services stopped, including many microsoft ones. If I try to enable then and restart my PC, simply nothing happens, they keep stopped.

I tryed to manually start them through 'services.msc', some of them start to work, like 'Vaio Event Service' which enables my Fn key, but when I restart, every alteration made is undone ( I quickly notice this when I try to use Fn key in attempt to raise/lower the volume, after I restart).

I thought of virus/malware could possibly doing so, so I ran MSE,adwcleaner, spybot but the errors remain. Any suggestions please?

I had this problem before in Oct. 2006 with my computer at home and put drivecleaner 2006 on it and it corrected the problem. Now my symantec and pestpatrol caught it as spyware and and all and I'm kind of confussed on where to put it back on my computer or not! Any advice. I have Window XP Pro.

Answer:Windows Updates Fails To Update With No Error Codes.

Drive Cleaner is a program that displays exaggerated reports of security and privacy risks on your computer. Before you can fix these risks, though, the program requires you to purchase the commercial version of the software. Due to this Symantec labels this program a security risk.

I've had this error on a few occasions and have managed to work round it by doing a rollback or using an Acronis backup but this time no luck. I have tried 3 times from different backups and each time I end up with the same error where Window Updates no longer works, all unfinished updates disappear from the list and when I turned the computer off it finished off many updates though there were a lot missing. To add to this every time I turn the computer on it downloads the same 10 updates and installs them when the computer is turned off, though they never show up in the Windows Updates panel.

I have tried using the following in an attempt to fix the problem:

Windows Action Centre - nothing suggested.

Microsoft Fixit (Online) - no success

Fixit Tool 50202 - no success

System Update Readiness Tool KB947821 - this fixed some error but not 8007370B

Disk Check - no errors (files or bad sectors)

sfc /scannow - I get the "Windows resource protection could not perform the requested action" message. I have tried running this from within Windows and from a command line, also from safe mode. Even tried the icacls command to revert file/folder permissions with no success.

The only other thing I can add it that I do not have a Windows 7 disc, only a recovery partition plus a Win7 service pack 1 disc. Unfortunately I purchased from Mesh just before they went into liquidation.

So here goes my story.

After +- 3 years of use I decided to format and to do a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium through an USB install. All goes well and the first thing I do is updating by using Windows update. All updates succeed and I install all other programs needed for personal use. But along the way my pc kept freezing (especially during big downloads through Steam, watching Flash Player videos in my browser or some trivial other things) so I decided to restart my pc. Blue screen appeared and I started everything over: Format > Clean install > updates.
But now the updates didn't work as before and get stuck around 19-20 of them failing. The error code been given every time is "Code 800706F7" I've done several things recommended on this forum and here are the results:

1. Ran the SURT tool and it installed Hotfix for Windows (KB947821)

2. Ran a SFC scan

3. Used the Fix It tool from MS to no avail

4. Tried some other things I can't remember proposed on other forums but reverted with a system recovery point when they didn't work

Answer:Failing updates in Windows update (Error: Code 800706F7)

The CheckSUR log is incomplete - and there are no apparent problems in the CBS log or SFC scan.

Please upload the C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log file to a replay, and run the CheckSUR tool again - post the CheckSUR.log and CheckSURPersist.log files.

Last successful update was on 15/07/2012, since then I didn?t turn on my netbook. 3 days ago I turned it on and had 11 important updates waiting to be installed. All failed over and over again. Been trying to solve this issue for 3 days and have done the following to no avail. Search box typed run and then entered msiexec /unregister , then msiexec /regserver
1. In Services, Windows Installer, already set to manual, clicked on start and received following pop up error, Windows could not start the Windows Installer Service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access Denied.
2. Changed Permissions so that users and administrators have full control on all HKEYs.
3. CMD: sfc /scannow ? Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
4. Saved on desktop Windows 7 msiserver.reg and double clicked on it.
5. Downloaded registry repair software.
6. In the HKEY_lOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/services/msiserver, deleted enum.
7. And others I can?t remember.

I cannot do a fresh install of Windows 7 as I do not have the cd. It?s just me and the netbook, and no cds. Any help will be most certainly appreciated. I?m tired but don?t want to give up.

Answer:Some updates were not installed, Windows Update Error Code: 800704B3

You've made some large mistakes, I'm afraid.
Is your Recvoery parttion still intact? - Check your manual for the Recovery procedures,and back up your data to external media as a precaution.

Then attempt a System Restore to before you attemtped to repair the system.

Then post an MGADiag report - I have a suspicion I know what the problem is, and that should onfirm it (or tell me I'm well off base!)

Had an issue with windows update, got technicians to have a crack at it over remote access and I think it was a case of too many cooks spoil the broth.
So many things done, and now windows update searches forever for updates or until battery runs out on laptop once unplugged from mains.

Any ideas?

Hi.

Th problem is that all windows updates are failed to install (around 27 updates) since the 17/May.
I tried everything from deleting temporary files, doing malware check, hard disk check for errors, still could not solve it.

Any ideas?

I had already installed, successfully I might add, a Definitions update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB3115321). The Update already installed and now it keeps coming up with the same error unable to install update:
Definition Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB3115321) 32-Bit Edition - Error 0x80070643
I tried uninstalling the installed update and Windows won't do it returning an "Unspecified error" response. I have Windows 10 Home (32bit) installed and I cannot find a way to get Update, as you used to be able do, to HIDE the offending update. (THANKS Microsoft for removing functionality from Windows YET AGAIN).
I'm at my wits end with this. . I have asked about this problem before directly reporting the issue to Microsoft (Surprise surprise... NO RESPONSE. I'd get a better response from a brick wall). Seriously not happy; considering cutting my losses and reverting (AS I STILL HAVE MY INSTALL DISCS) to Windows 7 or moving to Linux. Way to go to p**s off users!

Answer:Windows Updates fail to install an already installed update error???

Problem solved. Used the Microsoft Show/Hide Updates Troubleshooter tool. Why did I have to go looking for this? This is a useful part of Windows functionality... What were they thinking of removing it. then hiding the tool? (Rhetorical questions; I know why. Thank you Nanny Microsoft, but I'm a better programmer than most of your shiftless lot)

Windows Update doesn't seem to be working for me, it's giving me an "unknown error" with the code above. I have tried Tweaking.com's Windows Repair Tool, but the same problem still arises. I'd be grateful for any help.

Coincidentally, when I try to install Microsoft .Net Framework 4, the same error code appears and the program refuses to install. Could it be related?

I have 3 Updates I've been trying to install for a while, however they seem to keep failing. I've never had any issues previously with Windows Update, and I keep the computer relatively clean. I've tried a few troubleshooting steps ( Such as running my Registry Cleaner, Fix-its from Microsoft )

I am getting the Error 80070643. I ran the Fix-it from the Microsoft Website - Windows Update error 80070643 and the Microsoft Office Source Engine Service is already running.
I also went here, and ran the Fix-it which resets Windows Update, In Aggressive Mode - How do I reset Windows Update components?

Ran Windows Update again, Same error.

I’m running Windows Seven x64 Home Premium, I have not made any recent changes to my computer.


Either the Updates are bugged, or there's something else going on here. I'm going to try installing them from the Administrator Account - I am going to try in Normal Mode and In Safe Mode With Networking and post back the results. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be very grateful. Thanks

I've honestly never really had an issue with Updates. This is very odd.


**I tried Windows Update on Administrator with no success. I also tried to run it in Safe Mode, but it would not open.**


I'm going out - I will be back later.

An Intel HDMI Compute Stick clone: HANNSPREE Quanta running Windows 8.1 with Bing, upgraded to Windows 8.1 Prof w media centre.
I like the stick as it takes little space when I want a clear desk.
I had to reinstall everything using the image provided by seller which is time consuming.

My question: how to avoid a repeat of the error?
As this is a very proprietary system (uses a 32 bit uefi on a 64 bit capable device running Windows 32 bit) it is not possible to boot a repair dvd for it.
I could access a dos prompt with the imaging usb app, but dism.exe did not work until I deleted pending.xml in .../winsxs
anyways even that didn't work either, so I had to re-image & reinstall everything.
So what is the update to avoid so as not to get a non functional HDMI stick with error: Fatal error c000003a applying update operation after running updates on Windows 8.1
Thanks

This is an on-going problem and I am at my wits end.

What I have: Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 64bit, no additional software installed since I could never get past the update issue.

The symptom: went attempting to run windows update it says "searching for updates". It never stops "searching for updates" until I close or end the program. I have let it run for 2 days straight.

What I have tried:
1. Did the "clear the cache" fix, (stopped BITS and windows update services, deleted SoftwareDistribution folder, then restarted), no change
2. Attempted to install updates manually, it hangs on "searching for updates on this computer".

3. Even when trying to install the system update readiness tool does not work.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thank you

Answer:Windows update not working, hangs while "searching for updates"

I decided to start over, even installed a new, factory fresh hard drive (I have planned to do this in the future and thought this would be a good time to do it).
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit, SP1 from an original windows disk.
I activated windows successfully and started windows update.
It does the same thing as before, just says "searching for updates" and never does anything else.
Could it be my hardware? I have a good fast internet connection to most sites. Memory tested good.
No driver issues seen.
I did notice when I installed windows, all the window colors were set to red.
I don't remember seeing that before. I changed the color to the default blue color.

Thank you for your continued support.

So Firefox popped up showing that an update was available. I decided "sure" let it update. Upon browser launching after update now its FULL SCREEN BROWSER with no controls and no directions on how to get back to the way the browser was before. So I had to mess around and figure it out.I took screenshots showing what they dump you off at after the update to 38.0.1And you need to move your pointer to the very top of the screen to then have the hidden toolbar to show, and then right-click in this area to get the menu with 2 options to appear in which they have HIDE TOOLBARS checked.

So Firefox popped up showing that an update was available. I decided "sure" let it update. Upon browser launching after update now its FULL SCREEN BROWSER with no controls and no directions on how to get back to the way the browser was before. So I had to mess around and figure it out.I took screenshots showing what they dump you off at after the update to 38.0.1And you need to move your pointer to the very top of the screen to then have the hidden toolbar to show, and then right-click in this area to get the menu with 2 options to appear in which they have HIDE TOOLBARS checked. You need to uncheck that, and then your not done there. Now you get your URL bar, but the taskbar is still missing as well as the menu controls of Firefox are still missing.

Hi, I'm running Windows 7 64-bit (I think) and I cannot run Windows Updater or switch on Windows Firewall. On a possibly related note, Windows .NET framework refuses to install or work properly on my PC.
 
Windows Updater: When I attempt to check for updates the updater simply says that the "service is not running" I have been unable to turn the service on by any method I have tried. Whenever I run the inbuilt troubleshooter and recommended Microsoft Fixit files, they merely say they have either fixed the problem or not detected the problem. Sadly, this isn't the case as the problem has not been resolved at all. When I ran the troubleshooter recently, it provided a report which I have attached as a .pdf in the hope it may help lead to a solution.
 
Windows Firewall: The Firewall says is is 'Not running reccommended settings' and will not restore those recommended settings if I ever click the button to 'fix' the issue. If I open 'Windows Firewall with Advanced Security' the program merely states "there was an error opening the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in. The Windows Firewall with advanced security snap-in failed to load. Restart the Windows Firewall service on the computer you are managing. Error Code: 0x6D9
 
I have seen that these issues have been solved on this forum before without system resets and hope such a solution is possible for my computer.
Thanks for your time,
Joel.
 
 

Answer:Help?: Cannot Update Windows & Firewall Not Working (Error 0x6D9)

First of all, welcome to BC !
 
The firewall and updater problems are very common symptoms of malware infection. Your best bet is to post this problem in the 'Am I infected?' section of BC and get any question of malware resolved before going looking for other possible solutions.
 
When you post there, include the make and model of your computer, as well as your operating system. If it is self-built, then list the main specs. And be patient !  These people are busy !  And if you are asked to do something which you don't understand, post back to them for clarification.

Hi!
I know there are tons of messages about how to install or force install W10 but I have a different error and none of the solutions seem to work.
I'm getting error 80244019 in WindowsUupdate every time I try to look for updates. I've tried since yesterday the force command line but it does nothing. I've tried also fixing Windows Update with WUdiagnostic. It "solves" 3 or 4 errors everytime I run it but it doesn't change the 80244019 error.
How do I solve 80244019 error?
I have also tried the MediaCreationTool way but when it's going to start the installation it says that I'm trying to install a different language, not the one that uses my OS so it won't let me upgrade The only way is wiping my files and apps and I don't want that. How do I change the language of the MediaCreationTool?
Thank you
PS. It's crazy how easy was for my other PC to install it and how impossible it is with this one.

Answer:Windows Update Error 80244019 and MediaCreationTool nor working

I have the exact same problem with the mediacreationtoolx64. I live in Denmark and i use english as language on my windows 7 pro. But instead of just checking the language used MS has decided to do some ber secret magic trick that i cannot seem to escape so that it wants to install a danish version of windows 10. This is SO annoying. How can they just assume that you want a danish version just because you live in denmark? There can be a million reasons for using another language and the user should be able to upgrade to the language that they already uses.

I recently (one week ago) made myself a dual-boot to Windows Vista SP2. I installed everything I needed and set the Windows updates to Automatically install updates. When I needed to make a video smaller (no need to talk about this in this thread) on Handbrake it said I needed Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0. I was surprised to see that. I went to see what Windows updates does and it wasn't checking for updates, as I set it to do. I started the check myself. I left it like that 30 minutes. When I closed my game, it was in the same state: checking for updates. So, I went to my .NET Framework 4 installer and, after 15 minutes, it gave an error: another installer is running. There were no installers, besides Windows update. So, I closed its process and let the installer run. After 15 minutes, it gave me an error (I don't remember the name of the error, I'll post it ASAP). So, I started researching, tried everything (MS FIXIT 50202, reset windows update history, reregister windows update components which gave me error 1060 and error 5 - error 5 is after trying MS FIXIT). I tried to "force" the .NET Framework 4 install by installing it step-by-step: 1.1  1.1 SP1  3.5  4. No succes. I AT LEAST need to install that .Net Framwork somehow. And the most interesting part is that my antivirus doesn't say that my OS is not up-to-date . SPECS: 6GB RAMAMD Athlon ll X4 750K 3.2-4.0 GHzAMD Radeon R7 240 4GB GDDR3

Now it doesn't even give the error anymore. It just sits there and fake-installing .Net Framework.

As the title says, I have problems with Windows Update. I tried some fixes like: Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components, Reset_Windows_Update_History, MicrosoftFixit50362 (which is a Microsoft Installer Fixer that couldn't install PowerShell), MicrosoftFixit50202. But what I really need is installing .NET Framework 4. I tried forcing it to install, installing it step by step, but it couldn't go further than .NET Framework 3.5. I need that Framework, the other updates don't really matter. And the interesting thing is that my antivirus doesn't say that Windows is not up-to-date, which is not normal, in ESET Smart Security, if Windows is not up-to-date.

Answer:Windows Update stuck at Checking for Updates and can't install Updates manually

Hi antoniu200:
 
Many other Vista users have reported that Windows Update seems to get stuck at "Checking for updates..." for long periods of time, and this problem dates back to the August 2015 Patch Tuesday updates - see my screenshots in ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking in the VistaForums. This month's December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates required a full hour on my machine before it finished the  "Checking for updates..." phase and finally presented a list of available updates, so you might want to try running a manual Windows Update and leaving your computer alone for an hour or so to see if it eventually runs to completion.
 
You might also want to read Nikilet's recent thread Updates were not configured correctly in that same forum.  Some Vista users, including myself, received an error message this month stating "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Please do not turn off your computer" when they tried to install the December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates.  Six updates for the Vista OS and one cumulative update for IE9 were marked as "Failed" on my machine after Windows forced an automatic rollback and re-boot of my machine.  I re-ran Windows Update today and all Important updates that failed yesterday eventually installed successfully ("Checking for updates..." still took about one hour and I declined one Recommended update KB3112148 for Vista and one Optional update KB3106614 for Silver...

Hi forum,

I'm having some problem about a week ago with Microsoft security essentials bugging out on me and not opening or updating. Basically the message I got on opening MSE was windows cannot access specified path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the file. Upon reading this about a week ago, I think! I proceeded to foolishly downloading a Zeroroot access program and a few MSE alternatives. Since then I have still been unable to re-install MSE by deleting all components in the registry.

The error code I get with trying to re-install MSE is 0x80070643

Having then unistalled the zeroaccess program and the previous alternative antivirus programs, I still cannot get MSE working, and I now have a windows 7 update error. The new system update I believe may be to do with security as-well!! The error code on doing a windows 7 update is 80070005, and it did cut out at 9% every time. (although now I think it is just 0%)
Can someone please help me as I have had a very successful streak of avoiding viruses by always usin MSE. I don't want, and can't afford to get a virus attack, not to mention Im runnign windows 7 ultimate so I need the windows 7 updates too because the ultimate can be dodgy sometimes. Nb the update I cannot do is 1.4mb but I am anticipating windows will throw me a new update any day soon which could be anywhere from 30mb to 200mb and it could fail all of it leaving me prone to attacks.

This girl on our floor is getting all of the symptoms of the good ole blaster worm and it's 1 minute to reboot issues. I figured I could just windows update until I fix it.
So I install the updates. They install fine, no errors, and windows update says they're installed. Reboot, the same updates are listed. Try once again, and again it says the same ones are listed after I reboot. So I try through automatic updates, and, once again, the same thing. The updates just aren't installing besides saying that they are installed.
I then download the stand-alone blaster worm patch. Run it, and right after I click "I Agree" and hit next, the window just closes, no errors or anything. Try again, same thing. Try in safe mode, same thing.
I've never had a problem with this before, does anyone have any recommendations?
 

Answer:Windows Update installs updates, but they're still listed under updates

I had the same thing on a system I was working on. I ran Spybot and Ad-aware and cleaned off so much crap... But I had to let Spybot start at reboot to catch the app-killer. Try that and see if you can get those updates to take. It may be some nastiness in the box. Umm, no pun intended.

I formatted the laptop because it stopped connecting to the internet entirely, losing around 6,000 songs and a lot of photos. Now I have made a point not to download hardly anything and use it for facebook email and that sort of thing at work, but today it was working and randomly decided it didn't want to anymore. In firefox I recieved a list of HTML script that said it timed out due to taking to long to respond and I couldn't fix it... at the bottom right that little computer icon thing says 'Currently Connected" with "Access: Local and Internet". I tried to do a system restore and after going through the restore it loads up and says 'the system restore was unsuccessful' and now firefox is telling me "The connection was reset while loading''.

If you tried all of these things with no luck then I would uninstall firefox, redownload firefox (or a different browser if you don't like firefox), put the install file on a flash drive plug it into the laptop, move it onto the laptop, and open it up, enjoy!
P.S. No need to recover your computer unless it's a windows problem (which it isn't).

Trying to install windows 10 32 bit onto an HP Mini running an Atom 32 bit processor.
Created a win 10 32 bit bootable DVD which begins to load at which point it throws an error stating it is trying to run a 64 bit application on a 32 bit system.
The file is winload.exe and the error code is 0xc000035a.
I've tried it via USB and DVD now definitely with the x86 version of win 10 (unless it somehow creates an x86/64 bit hybrid) and still throws the same error.
Ram is 2 GB, HDD is 500 GB (upgraded from 160GB) and processor is 1.6 Ghz atom - shouldn't be a problem.
Any suggestion is appreciated.
