Hi Free Booter

 

I have successfully used the RestoreWindowsServices.bat to improve (reduce) CPU usage on a Toshiba Kira 2015 (i7 processor 256 ssd 8MB ram) running Win 8.1 64 bit.  Thank you.

 

I also ran the ResetWindowsUpdateComponents.bat script. I then ran the Windows Update service. I received a message that the service is not running. 

 

I ran the Windows 'Troubleshoot computer problems --> System and Security --> Fix problems with Windows Update. I also downloaded and ran the   WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab from the Microsoft website. Each of these ran its course and appeared to reset the update service.

 

However, the service is not showing running in the list of Services in the System Configuration utility (msconfig.exe). Presumably for the same reason I cannot install the manual updates. The service says it is looking for installed updates but nothing happens for several hours.

 

Any advice would be sincerely appreciated

Boris

I find this thread very interesting and have always found FreeBooters advice most helpful. That said I am a simple computer user and admit a lot of technicalities over my head.

 

However, may I recommend creating a system image backup, save data & create a System Restore point whenever attempting something new? In my experience many times an underlying problem can affect a procedure’s results.

 

Easyyu, in post #9 you need to use microsoft repair tool. Does that mean there was another problem going on besides an update problem?

 

Timfa I disabled Windows Defender at startup on one of my Win10 computers. Shut down. Started back up. Windows Defender wasn’t immediately recorded as protecting my computer in Security and Maintenance, which I expected. But Security and Maintenance didn’t have any red markers or security issues noted which is what I would have expected. OK but what I expected did happen: Windows Defender was suddenly acknowledged & recorded as protecting my computer within about 5, maybe 10 seconds.

EDIT: I forgot to include that I suspect Windows Defender shouldn't be part of the problem unless there's something I'm not aware of, but I do suspect that if someone else uses a 3rd party utility program - issues could then be involved.

Turn off firewall to see if its causing the update issue.

 

 

Please go to this page and download Fix Windows Update by Ramesh Kumar and save to your Desktop.

  • Extract it to your Desktop.
  • Then, double-click on the program and click the Fix Windows Update button.

Hey,

I ran the utility on a completely fresh install -- no antivirus installed, firewall off. I understand that third-party applications can mess things up, but there simply weren't any at the time.
Like I said, I sincerely doubt that this utility was created with any malicious intent, but there might be something going wrong on specific hardware setups or something.

I don't currently have access to the laptop, but I could try uploading a dxdiag or something similar here if that would help you.

Glad to see it's working for most people, though!

If you can please upload the WinUpResetLog.txt file located at your Desktop.
