So far, things have been ok with my Windows 10 update. Today I tried to look for updates, as I think this is the regular Patch Tuesday. However, it takes a long time, then gives me the error in the title. Using the update fixer doesn't work, I just get the "Service Registry is Missing or Corrupt". What would be causing that?

 

I'm also getting a problem with task host not wanting to allow shutdown, what's the deal there?

Have you used any registry cleaners recently that advertise themselves as system boosters or speeder-uppers? Those can cause registry corruption.

If you do though, don't use the registry cleaner feature.

That's for 7 though...I actually am not sure how to stop the automatic installation on 10.

You can stop it from automatically installing on Windows 10 by going to the Check for Updates result when you search Windows Update, Advanced Options, then select how updates are installed. :)

I think you can select the updates to install from the Control Panel.

There's a Settings in Windows 10, but I can't find any place to select the updates from. And no 'control panel' anymore.

ChicagoMel, your Windows Updates settings can be found by entering "Windows Update" in the Start Menu and select "Windows Update settings". Simple as that. From there you can see which updates are going to be installed, and you have more settings under "Advanced Settings". That should do it for you.
