So, I started off at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/590109/windows-update-stuck-at-0-downloading/ but have been directed here as my problem is no long er malware related. The problem is, I've been trying to upgrade to windows 10 but I do not have the reserve a copy icon on my taskbar. I found this was due to some uninstalled updates from windows update. Previously my update bar was stuck at 0% progress, but this was fixed. Now when I launch windows update I get the message "Install new Windows update software" i click install now and the program closes and relaunches and displays the error message "Windows could not search for new updates. Error code 800F081F". I click try again and the message "Install new Windows update software" appears again. Basically i can keep following the instructions and loop around continuously.
I've tried a Sfc scan with a result of no integral violations
Any help will be appreciated
I'm on windows 7 home premium with service pack 1, 64-bit OS
