Hey guys. So, i seem to be having another problem with Windows 7 (#2 to be exact). Windows Update fails to install nearly EVERY SINGLE UPDATE!!! And each time it fails, it returns the same two error codes: 800B0100, and 800736B3. Regardless of what it is, whether it is Critical, Recommended, Optional, etc... it fails! I never had this problem with XP. Does anybody have experience with this problem? Thanks!

Is the Windows Update service turned on. Go to Start then type Services. And have you checked your firewall.

1:Run the Windows Update again from your PC's Start Menu.
If it still fails try this:
At the command prompt, copy and then paste (or type) the following command.
regsvr32 Wintrust.dll /s
Close the Command Prompt window.
Try to install the update again.

2:Run the Windows Update again from your PC's Start Menu.
You may need to TURN OFF your firewall whilst doing this if it fails again. But remember to turn it back on again!!!

The Windows Update Service is enabled by default. regsvr32 Wintrust.dll /s didn't help or hurt. I disabled the Windows Firewall, and tried to do the updates again, still no luck. So i clicked "Check for updates". It found one more update, so i clicked download, i actually got a download progress bar. And now, after checking the results, i see that that new update was the only one that succeeded. So is it possible that the updates just aren't downloaded, and that's why they are failing? Also, how do i make an exception for Windows Update in Windows Firewall? Thanks!!!

You know what? I came across that same article earlier, but was deterred by the 101MB download! But i'll download it anyways.

Well, it downloaded, i installed it, and now Windows Update tells me there are no important updates available? Which is strange because before there were 21 important updates available, and now there isn't. Maybe the Stand alone package installed them without making a log, because Windows update does not show any successfully installed updates. Although afterwards, i was able to install the optional updates that were still available. So maybe it worked! I HOPE!!!

Yes. I did reboot. I also disabled and reenabled Windows Firewall to see if that made a difference in checking for updates, i couldn't tell, either way it said no new updates were available. By the way, is there any way to reinstall all of the failed updates? There are like 90 of them.

Can you check the update history, if they actually were installed?

Make sure that AVG's LinkScanner isn't blocking your updates!
