I have tried many repairs that have been mentioned on the internet and Microsoft's site with NO LUCK.
1 ) Open RegEdit and navigate to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\ Windows\WindowsUpdate
2 ) Remove any and all values within this key. Most likely, the culprit is a faulty Windows Update source server. Sometimes this is the result of a latent or previous infection.
3 ) Finally, download and run Microsoft FixIt 50202. Try the Default settings first, and if that does not work, try Aggressive.
4 ) Reboot the computer and check to see that Windows Update is working properly.
I also tried this:
BTW, for years I have tried using the MS Fix It, I have never seen it work even once yet. (probably just me doing something wrong)
C) searched the registry for WindowsUpdate, nothing comes up.
D) another site had 4 different bat files that stopped auto update services and cleard some other items. I can post those bat files if needed.
When I run the up-date from control panel, all looks good, 17 up-dates down load and run, however a re-boot is required, and at that point you get a message that the up-dates failed, and you are back to step one. Updates message in task bar says you have 17 updates to install. Is this a malware or malware caused problem.
I can do a Hijackthis log if needed.
Any Thoughts? I tried searching bleepingcomputer for "win 7 update problems" and received "0" zero results back. So I must be a 1st here with this problem.
