 Doing a search for this code at microsoft.com yields this

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

This is a Microsoft page entitled : How Do I Reset Windows Update Components

 

My advice is to Use the :

Automatically reset Windows Update components

 

The fixes are for windows 8, 8.1, 7,... XP and Vista

 

Reboot after running the fix, and then attempt to use Windows Update again

 

THEN...if the above does not work...:

 

Download

Windows repair tool

Extract and launch the Repair_Windows.exe file

Click on Start repairs tab-click on Start

check mark following options alone

Reset registry permissions
reset file permissions


Checkmark Restart System When Finished option
click the Start button

System should restart after repair

You should be able to update now

Due to the lack of response, I will remove you from my watch list.

 

If this is not the case, please open a new topic.
