I purchased a new desktop in February 2015. It came with Windows 7 Professional SP1 installed on it. As far as I can tell, the updater stopped working in the beginning of August. I didn't notice until November when I started having BSOD issues. The BSOD issues were fixed by replacing RAM. I have not been able to get WU to work. I am receiving a 80070002 error. I was receiving this error when I had the BSOD problems.
Don't know if it matters, but I have a Dell XPS8700, Intel Core i5-4460, NVidia GForce GT720 video card.
I have downloaded the system readiness tool. I have the option of WU or BITS. When running WU, the result is Service Registration is missing or corrupt (fixed) and Problems found installing recent updates (not fixed). When running BITS, I get the same thing, plus an 8007005 error (not fixed).
I reset my WU components through the automatic FIX It.
I tried the elevated command prompt with the following,
net stop wuauserv
ren SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
net start wuauserv
I then tried downloading the latest WU Agent. It would download and attempt to install, but I got the following message. "Windows Update Agent encountered an unrecoverable error". I looked up the version I have. It is 7.6.7601.19016
I then tried the elevated command prompt with the following,
while they did register, WU still wont work.
I tried reset the WU Components manually. One error I received was "Module mshtml.dll was loaded, but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. I also got this error for the following files: shdocvw.dll, browseui.dll, qmgr.dll.
I also got the following error. "The module msxml.dll failed to load" I also got this error on the following files: gpkcsp.dll, sccbase.dll, slbcsp.dll, muweb.dll, initpki.dll, wuaueng1.dll, wucltui.dll and wuweb.dll.
By the way, I restarted my computer between every step, before starting another.
I have run out of ideas of how to get WU working.
Can you help please?
