This laptop only updated two updates recently leaving about 16 showing as failed.
I ran the MS Fix It tool and/or the fix update tool with little success. Please see enclosures. What is strange is that one window showed it did not fix the error 0x80070057 (Win Update error_b.jpg) and the report of the fix indicated it did fix it, if I am reading it correctly (256029346.pdf). A third file "UPDATE ERRORS" lists recent attempts to install MS Updates.
I am in need of getting this laptop up and running quickly so I can restore my main system back to factory and use this as backup during a hectic school semester.
My problem also sounds familiar to another recent posting in this forum. I hope I can quickly resolve this. Unlike the other posting, I did not do a winsocket reset (I do not know how).
