I've been unable to update Windows for awhile so this really has nothing to do with Windows 10 distribution although the problem persists there as well. Upon researching Micriosoft's debuggin suggestions, I went to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore and attempted to delet the file DataStore.edb as well as the contents of the Log subdir..In doing so I received a popup indication that I would
require administator privileges to complete the operation. So I clicked on "Confinue nothing happened, the cursor just returned. So I tried to change the name of the file so it would not be recognized by the system. This resulted in the same "Youl'll require administrator permissions" to which I clicked "Continue" and thar returned a message stating "the file or folde does not exist". So I tried going to the file properties and changing the file persmiission and received a popuup stating "Can;t open access control editor. The system cannot find the file specified.
I am the sole user and administrator of this laptop.
Can anyone tell me if I'm heading in the right direction and if so what to do to continue?
