Dear BleepingComputer Staff,
Hi. My name is Nathaniel Evans. I really respect what you do. You've saved me before. I really need your help. My Windows 10 Aspire E1-532-2616 stopped updating a few days ago. I can no longer update. I tried all the automatic windows troubleshooting. I did the advanced options-unchecked the update other Microsoft products box as I was advised from the bulk of google searches. I restored to an earlier time. I restored to a back up. I still can't get Windows 10 to update. It updates to 5% then gives me update error 0x800705b4. Please help!

Thank you for your time.

Best Regards,
Nathaniel Evans

Thank you so much for responding FreeBooter!!! I did the troubleshooter and reset as stated above. It downloaded 100% but never installed. It just hung. I restarted then it hung at 9% downloading. I did Tweak Windows Repair SFC it said everything fine except I have a corrupt update database that 1 Fix it couldn't do. I'm now running chkdsk fix and it hangs at 11% complete. What to do now O wise Master?" Ha :) Best Regards, Nathaniel Evans
