Tried updating using windows update and i was getting an error (0x8007042c) that, according to the website, is a firewall error code. The problem is I have done all of the fixes for it and nothing worked. I have also made sure that my firewall is on, it is. I have checked for malware, and there is none. It will still not run.


As for windows store, I have tried opening it and it closes after the loading page. I have set my time automatically, manually reconfigured it relative to time.(whateverthesiteis).gov, etc. I have tried the powershell fixes and a command in cmd given to me through a solution page. I have no idea.


Any help?

ooh, i have a signature

It is incorrect to assume Windows 10 is corrupted when no diagnostics have been run.


@TOMIS13LACK - Please do the following as the first line troubleshooting step.



  • Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

  • At the top of the search box, right click on the cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

  • In the black window that opens, type "SFC.EXE /SCANNOW" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

  • Let the program run and post back what it says when it's done. Let us know if this has helped.
