Hello,

I am having some problems with my computer and I was hoping I could get some help here.

For about a month or maybe longer, when starting up windows to desktop I get this little notice pop-up:
68541d1481047263-failed-connect-windows-
I never worried about it since I could still use everything fine. However recently I tried to run windows update and it wouldn't work. I open it from the control panel window, but the window just permanently freezes until I restart my computer. I tried system restore after, but clicking on it nothing happens either. Checking processes I see something like this:
68542d1481047372t-failed-connect-windows
And in addition it looks like I cannot install/launch certain programs anymore - they just hang on launching the installer.

I don't know if these three issues are related, but it's causing me a lot of headache since I don't want to reformat my computer. Some Googling shows that the problem (with the updates at least) is that windows update failed and now is broken?  I do recall accidentally shutting off my computer in the middle of an update a long time ago.

 

Can anyone suggest a solution on how to fix this problems?

Open Command Prompt as a administrator by pressing  Win + X,  letter key.

 

Run below command from Command Prompt that is open as administrator.

 

Sfc  /Scannow

 

You would use DISM to fix Windows component store corruption when a sfc /scannow command is unable to repair corrupted or modified Windows system files because the component store (source) is corrupted.

 

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

 

 SFC should be able to repair the files afterwards. Execute below command to make sure corrupted system files repaired.

 

Sfc  /Scannow

Hi,

 

Are you getting any errors showing in the event log?  

 

I was getting a lot, but I wasn't sure if they're related or not.  I have attached a brief event log below.

 

 

 

There are to many system restore processes running can you restart your computer and post a new screenshot for us for the Task Manager.

Hi, for some strange reason when I restarted my computer today, everything fixed itself.  All of a sudden I can install programs again, access updates and sys restore, and the group policy error wasn't showing up... I don't think I changed anything before the restart either (I had tried restarting many times before) so I'm not sure what happened but everything seems to be fine now?

 

Thanks for your suggestion though, I will try it out if this happens again before asking for help.  Thank you!
