Preferred Solution: Windows Update error Code 80240016 and Code 80070002

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I try to install update "Synaptics - Input - Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad" it fails every time.

I have tried :- sfc/runnow

and going to:- start/computer/manage/services/applications/services. Locate Windows update service. Stop/start.

Neither worked.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry to bother with this old subjecty bu unfortunately I was not able to solve it in spite of the suggestions read in the site.
I'm no longer able to update since the end of August and now also office gives error messages for lack of updates.
I tried using command and then sfc /scannow as well as going to command and then "net stop WuAuServ" that was rejected by the computer asnot allowed even if I'm the administrator on my pc.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Hey,
The windows update successfully downloads updates and then when I click "Install Updates" it says:
Error Found:
Code 80070002 Windows encountered an unknown error.
I know this has been mentioned many times from multiple people and I have tried nearly every suggestion I have found and nothing has worked. I have many important files on my PC, so a clean install would be the very last thing I would try.
I am using Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit.

A:Windows Update Error Code 80070002! NEED HELP!

Oh and by the way,
I uninstalled my SP1 and SP2 from my PC to try an upgrade install from within windows (My Setup DVD did not have any SP's on it. It also came with the computer from dell, already installed). I had heard that this works like a repair install and helps fix any corrupt system file problems. But when it gets to the second part of the install (after copying windows files, i think) it says:
Windows was unable to complete the installation and will install when you restart the installation again. The installation window popped up again and so I tried again. It said the same thing, I tried it multiple times but it refuses to work. I rebooted and it booted into windows setup, not vista. It started and then said:
The setup could not start or something like that. Using msconfig I have changed the default OS back to vista.

Hello,

I have been trying to update my computer for about 6 months now to no avail. Updates are downloaded, but not installed - - instead I get error code 80070002 and the updates all fail . I have tried using the stand alone installer, and all the recommendations that windows help offered, but no luck. I read through another thread and tried using the MGADiag.exe program and my OS is genuine, but the error code 80070002 comes up repeatedly throughout the report. Please, if anybody knows how to resolve this issue, I would be very appreciative!

A:Windows Update Error Code: 80070002 - Help PLEASE!

80070002 is a File Not Found error. It suggests (to me) a corruption of the downloads. Give this a try (you must be using an adminstrator account for this):

- Go to Start and type "cmd" (without the quotes)
- at the top of the Search box will be an entry for CMD.EXE - right click on it and select "Run as administrator"
- In the black window that appears, type "net stop wuauserv" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Wait until the screen tells you that it's completed successfully. Leave this window open as you'll need it later. If it prompts to stop other services, tell it yes.

- Open up Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution. Delete the contents of the folder (but not the folder itself).

- Go back to the black window and type "net start wuauserv" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

- Reboot and see if Windows Update works now. Let us know what happens.

I should warn you that my track record n fixing this type of error is not good (yet!) - mostly because its rare.
Having said that, it does look like there is corruption in your registry.

I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Hi,

I have had my pc running on Vista for about 3 months. For the first couple of weeks it allowed me to do Windows Updates. Since then I have had a whole range of different errors and as I found a fix for each one it was replaced by another. I am now constantly getting the Error No. 80070002. I have tried everything I can find online to rectify the problem including those below which seem to have fixed other people's pcs. Any help greatly appreciated.

Solution One
1)Stop the windows update service (from services)
2)Delete temporary update files - In Datastore and download
3)Restart the the windows update service

Solution two

after u apply this file reboot and try to do a update again it should work http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...-bdb8-c4e00af5b94b/NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe

I have about a 3 year old Win 7 64-bit computer. It has had Windows update issues for quite some time and always been a bit quirky. I just started reading about the error code and have done all of the appropriate response fixes from Microsoft. Let me preface this by saying I have always had issues with the memory which I am installing new chips hopefully today. Until then I was wondering if someone could have a look at the simple text that SFCFix came up with. It will be below. I also cannot run the scf /scannow command in windows or safe mode due to the usual system protection thing. I thought maybe if I posted the SFCFix log maybe someone will recognize it as being something that someone has seen. I am also attaching the CBS log. Thank you in advance.

Hello,

So a while ago my computer got that error and i literally tried everything i can to fix it, and failed. I now realize the reason i get an error is because a while ago i deleted my ProductId from the registry for a reason, and exported it but now i cant seem to find, i must have deleted it by accident. But now i literally how no idea if im able to recover it somehow, or recreate it. I would really appreciate if im able to recreate it somehow!

it was in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

remember theres ProductID and ProductId, i have ProductID which is located in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\00002119F20000000000000000F01FEC\InstallProperties

There's no sign in your CBS.log file that SFC actually ran.
an 0x80070002 error is actually a 'File not found' error, and often means that a registry entry is pointed in the wrong direction, rather than that a file is missing.

I'm getting this error code when I try to run backup. Can I have some suggestions as to how to fix it please?

A:Backup error code 80070002

The error code seems to mean the backup cannot find some file. What type of backup are you doing, image and file?

If it is a file, you might check what is being backed up and alter the selection to see if you can find the location of what file might it be missing. If this is a follow on backup, perhaps start over with a new backup.

You might check the Event Viewer to see if it gives you any more info, or look in the Windows\Logs\WindowsBackup folder to see if any of the .log files have any info.

A:Error Found Code 80070002

I found a couple of possible fixes. the first one came from here WTF! Vista update error code 80070002 - techPowerUp! Forums and it says:

1) Go to the Start Menu.

2) Click on Computer.

3) Open up the drive where windows is installed (usually your C drive).

4) Open the Windows Folder.

5) Scroll down a bit and locate the SoftwareDistribution folder (exactly like that).

6) Open the Download folder.

7) Open the Install folder.

8) There sould only be one file there. Right click on it and select "Run as Administrator".

9) After entering an Administrator password, run the installation, using the default values and clicking yes at the license.

10) After the installation is complete (shouldn't take more than a few minutes), restart your computer (as an added precaution, though not necessary).

11) After the computer restarts again, run Windows Update again. It should run as normal. All fixed!

I apologize for Microsoft's ineptitude.

Hi. I've just tried to update my computer (Haven't updated it in a long time), and I was prompted these 2 errors. The first, Error Code 80070002 was displayed when I attempted to update it via Windows Updater. The second, Error Code 80070057 was displayed when I ran the program 'Windows Update Diagnostic', in response to the first error, as I was told that would help solve the problem.

It did not, and now I'm fearing that the downloading of a torrent file (Not porn) could have caused this via a virus infection? Any help would be most useful

I'm getting this error code when I try to run backup. Can I have some suggestions as to how to fix it please?

A:Backup error code 80070002

The error code seems to mean the backup cannot find some file. What type of backup are you doing, image and file?

If it is a file, you might check what is being backed up and alter the selection to see if you can find the location of what file might it be missing. If this is a follow on backup, perhaps start over with a new backup.

You might check the Event Viewer to see if it gives you any more info, or look in the Windows\Logs\WindowsBackup folder to see if any of the .log files have any info.

Hi all,

I am using a batch script to install Windows Updates from the command prompt. I need to install 3 updates, all of which are .msu files.

Here is my script:

@echo off
for /f %%A in ('dir /b *.msu') do (
echo == Installing Updates == "%%A" ...
C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe %%A
)
echo.
echo ###########################################################
echo.
echo == Updates installed ==
echo.
echo == Press any key to restart ==&pause>nul
echo.
shutdown.exe /r /t 0

I placed this batch script in a folder along with all of the updates I want to install. It finds the updates but when the standalone installer starts, it immediately returns error 80070002 "The file specified cannot be found."

I am not running this from a network share. The computer has been clean installed and is running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1. I have also tried this on 2 other computers with exact same results.

The code I used for the batch script I got from here:

Batch script for windows & software updates installation - Unattended Windows 7/Server 2008R2 - MSFN

I don't know what I am missing, urgent help needed! Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone!
After my first failed attempt to post my problem (since I posted on another person's thread... sorry about that ), here I am again.
I have been having a "Configuring Windows Update 32% complete" and shortly afterwards the "Welcome" messages on startup and the "Preparing to configure Windows Update.." followed by "Shutting down" on shutdown for quite some time. Of course, Windows Update isn't working and the "sfc /scannow" command always comes up with the "There is a sytem repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again". As you might have guessed already, restarting doesn't help and I am stuck on this endless circle.
So, as requested on the instructions, I have followed the required steps and here are my comments:
1) SURT installed succesfully and quite fast.
2) Commands "sfc /scannow" and "sfc/ verifyonly" come up with the message mentioned above so I moved on to option three, only to find a .txt file of 0 bytes and empty inside. So I guess this step didn't proceed as planned...
3) I have removed the older CBSPersist cab files and I will post them right afterwards, since the CBS.zip file including them is about 37MB.
Without further ado, please find attached the .zip file.
Thanks in advance for your time.

A:Error code 80070002, sfc/ scannow command not working

Following with 2 out of 5 of the older CBSPersist cab files, compressed. 3 to go.

On Aug 27, 2012 my system first indicated it had a problem because it could not install updates. The update history is completely gone even though it had installed many updates since first being activated.

I've done searches and completed all the usual steps with no success. These include
Microsoft automated "Fixit"
Clearing the update history folder.
Memory tests - run all weekend with no errors.
Chkdsk with surface scan - no errors.
Admin Cmd Prompt-> SFC /SCANNOW (exits after a few seconds with "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.")
Windows Repair Install (Fails with "Windows cannot copy files ... 80070241"). I've tried it using the genuine original installation DVD and also tried it using the "flat" install method with no luck.
MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes both say there are no threats. I'm all out of spit and bailing wire. Any suggestions?

A:Windows 7 no longer updating, code 80070002

First try this.
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the C:\Windows\System32 folder. find the Catroot2 folder there, and right-click on it - select Properties.

In the General tab, clear the box beside 'Read-only (Only.....' by clicking in it until it's empty (it cycles around three values)

Click Apply.
Accept any warnings that come up - if you get a 'Ignore/Ignore All/Try again' option, pick 'Ignore all'

Once complete (may be almost instantaneous),

try an SFC /SCANNOW again

Hello,Some third party programs can affect the Windows Update service. If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.), I recommend you temporarily disable or uninstall them and then try accessing Windows Update later. If the problem still happens, try the following steps:Rename the Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder================================================1. Close all the open windows. 2. Click "Start", click "All programs", and click "Accessories". 3. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator".4. In the "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type in "net stop WuAuServ" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Note: Please look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was successfully stopped before we try to rename the folder. However, if it fails, please let me know before performing any further steps and include any error messages you may have received when it failed.
5. Click "Start", in the "Start Search" box, type in "%windir%" (without the quotes) and press Enter.6. In the opened folder, look for the folder named "SoftwareDistribution".7. Right-click on the folder, select "Rename" and type "SDold" (without the quotes) to rename this ... Read more

Hello,

I have been working patiently for the better part of three days, but cannot resolve the issue. I can no longer use Windows Update. Something seems to have happened on or after 19 July -- the final date that updates were installed. Thereafter, only failure messages in the log (now wiped clean, as a result of following one of the suggestions I found). When I click "check for updates", I receive a message that a problem occurred. The error code is 80072EE2
When I then click in that same window on "Check online for updates from Microsoft Update" I always get the message "Install new Windows Update software. To check for Windows Updates, you must first install an update for Windows Update. Install now." Naturally I click on this, only to receive error code 800F081F.

I have tried out several suggestions that did seemed relevant, including the 12 methods I found at

While trying to execute Method 5, I found that HKLM\COMPONENTS was missing from view. I found instructions on how to use Load Hive to make this visible again. No difference to Win Update.

Sounds likely to be a malware infection to me.
The error code you are getting implies that WU cannot access the servers at MS.

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Hello,
I am receiving the titled errors during windows update, I checked at windows support and tried every answer given there with no success.
in addition, i think that this might be the cause that BattleField 3 crashes all the time.

A:Windows Update errors Code 800B0100 and Code 8007065E, tried everythin

First, check that teh file system and disk are OK
type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator
- the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type
CHKDSK C: /R
and hit the Enter key
You will be told that the drive is locked, and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, and then reboot. The chkdsk will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) - then run the SFC

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on the Start button
type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator
- the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key
Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

You will have seen that the SFC command leaves a log - please upload the CBS.log and attach it to your response (You will probably have to copy it to the dektop first)

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Hi, I'm running vista 64bit with SP2 installed (genuine copy) a couple of days ago I noticed the message on the bottom right of my screen saying 'Windows can't check for updates'. I tried checking again and got the following that you see in the pictures.

Thinking it was something that I had installed I tried a system restore...but still get the same message! I tried deleting the files that it says to but that didn't work.

My girlfriend is having exactly the same problem on her Vista 32bit SP2 laptop....her laptop and my pc do not share anything.

Any ideas please?

Hello,

I recieve error C80003FA whenever I do a Windows Update run. It doesn't get past the stage of checking for updates.

I've tried several fixes including:
- Waiting 15 minutes and running Windows Update again.
- Letting Windows Update run on its own schedule.
- SFC /Scannow
- Renaming the Catroot2 Folder.
- Running 3 different Fixit tools.
- Clean windows install.

After each and every one of those fixes I've tried windows update and I still get error C80003FA.

SFC Scannow has previously said no errors, but the last run through it said there were unfixable errors. I've got the log, though for brevity's sake I will keep it until someone asks for it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

A:Windows Update fails in Update Check. Error code C80003FA.

Clean windows install doesn't fix it? You must be blocked, maybe your firewall???
