Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

Q: Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

Tried the following:
1. Update works if I bypass the router, ie. connect the PC directly to modem.
2. It also works from different ISP, through router (at work).
3. Format disk & Reinstall windows 7

Preferred Solution: Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

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.)

A: Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

Hi,

Try to remove the proxy server entry from the WinHTTP proxy configuration for Windows 7:

1.
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start programs and files box.
2.
Right-click cmd.exe in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or click Continue.
3.
Type the following command and then press Enter:
netsh winhttp show proxy
Note The proxy setting is listed next to Proxy Server. If there is no proxy server, Direct Access <no proxy server> is shown in the Command Prompt window.
4.
To remove the listed proxy setting, type the following command and then press Enter:

netsh winhttp reset proxy
5.
Click Start, click All Programs, click Windows Update, and then try to download and install updates again.Alex Zhaozx

Hi all,

System: Win 7 Prof 64 bit SP1.

Automatic updates went into loop few days ago,when the installation of optional update KB2506143 failed. Log files had several entries with 0x80070bc9 error. Inspite of hiding the update the problem persisted.

Tried lot of microsoft fix it's, few other stuffs and the current state of the computer is,

a. After I login into the system. Windows update says, "Check for updates for your computer" with RED Check Mark. Always install updates to enhance your computer's security ....
b. When I invoke "Check for updates" button. After sometime, it shows, "Restart your computer to install important updates. Windows can't update important files and services while system is using them. save any open ......
c. If I invoke "Restart now' button, it would repeat to step #a. This is in a loop now. (no more updates are visible in the screen including the hidden updates).

Hello and welcome snvasanth try this Windows update error 0x80070BC9 with windows 7

na d it may be worth while installing the Microsoft Readiness Tool.


The error you are getting seems to be related to an Office program too - have you just installed one recently or updated it?

Anyhow the Readiness Tool is worth getting anyway.

Hi All

Some of our client machine(Windows7) is not taking update from WSUS server. When we verified the WindowsUpdate logs, we could see that WU client version is changed to 7.6.7600.256 from 7.5.7601.17514.Our WSUS server is running with version WSUS 3.0 SP1 on windows 2003 server. So we suspect this may be the reason windows 7 machines is getting the error message 'Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x800b0001' when it try to get the update from WSUS server.

So please suggest any steps to change the WU client version on windows 7 back to 7.5.7601.17514

Please find the attached log file.

Whelp to start this off I've Upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. I knew I was going to have issues with it considering it just came out but I think the issues I'm having are registry related errors due to Some issues i used to have with windows 7. So back about in I'd say March or April I'd had the Issue of malware getting into my registry and changing Chrome's, Firefox's and IE's Proxy setting to other values. Resulting in greyed out Boxes under internet settings and Under the connections tab Saying "Some settings are managed by your system adminsitrator" . I have gotten it resolved by deleting the values. But now its back again. Also you should know i did full scans with all of the following before posting here those include. Rougekiller, AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro, Avast, Emisoft Security Suite, and Malwarebytes. They Found the general PUP and Malware Which have been removed But there are Values that probably need deleted or changed and I need help finding them I've been browsing for an Answer on why the store was not working for a while until I realized what was going on. Note that Firefox works Fine but Internet explorer and anything Microsoft Related Cannot access the Internet that Includes the store windows update and logging into my Microsoft account.
Oh I've also Ran SFC /Scannow and CCleaner.

Any help would be appreciated

Hello everyone, I've looked around at other threads related to my issue, and I can't seem to find a correct answer.
I have a computer lab that I've recently installed a Windows 7 Enterprise image onto 35 Dell Optiplex computers (most are 380's, a few older 360's).
I created the image using MDT2010 and used one of the 380's as a reference.
All has been well for about a month or two but recently 6 computers are giving me Windows Update errors with the error code of 80080005.
I have a WSUS 3.0 SP2 server running, and all of my other computers seem to be getting their updates just fine.  WSUS has the problematic computers in it's database, but it shows that they haven't checked in for "x" days.
I have Avast 4.8 Professional installed, I have OpenDNS configured to block bad websites, ____, etc. and I also use an Untangle server to prevent access to bad websites.  I've ran a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware scan on the affected computers, as well
as Windows Defender scan, and Windows Live OneCare scans, and all have found no malicious software.
I have also tried resetting the Windows update service as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058 as well as a script that supposedly does the same thing, but also resets all previous
update events, but I can't find the script source right now (I had ran it last week, and it didn't work).
I'm currently running a SFC /Scannow on one of the computers, and now it has finished.  It gives the... Read more

A:Windows Update Error 80080005 Windows 7 Client with WSUS 3.0 SP2 server

Alright, I re-attempted to run the "SFC /scannow" command under a Administrator Command Prompt window, and got this error:
"SFC /scannow error message: Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"
I searched around a bit, and found a suggestion to check that the TrustedInstaller/Windows Module Installer is running.
When trying to start the Windows Module Installer, I get this error: 
 

Windows Modules Installer - Error 1450 Insufficient System Resources
What a fun problem this is turning out to be.  I'd like

Anyone doing a fresh install of Windows 7 should manually install SP1 (if needed).

The Windows Update Agent was renamed to Windows Update Client.

Manually requesting a search for Windows Updates on a Windows 7 computer with SP1 install should prompt the user to install a pre-SP1 Windows Update (WU) Agent (7.6.7600.320). Seems odd.

That old WU Agent worked just fine until Microsoft changed the update servers. The info coming back from the servers seems to now cause high RAM/CPU usage for some computers... but that old WU Agent should eventually get the job done. The computer might be useless for any other task for 24+ hours.

You can skip installing that old WU Agent and manually install the latest WU Client instead. Or, you can manually install the latest WU Client over top of that old WU Agent.

However, below is what I encountered when I went to install the latest Windows Update Client on a W7 pro 64bit SP1 computer.

I started by using these search terms in Google:
"Windows Update Client" "March 2016" "Windows 7"
As this post ages, replace "March 2016" with the current month/year.
If that does not find the desired KB, try the previous month.

That lead me to this link for March 2016: KB3138612.

The W7 pro 64bit SP1 computer has IE8 installed by default.

Visiting KB3138612 via IE8 got me this:

Hi
I'm running Windows 7 32bit.

I performed a clean install on a new hard drive, I successfully ran a few updates with Windows update and eventually was offered the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile which i installed.
When i tried to check for updates after that it failed with error 0x8024402f.
I have tried the "FixIt" tools from Microsoft, none hav ehelped.
The only thing that allows me to check for updates succesfully is if I uninstall .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.

I downloaded more updates from the Microsoft catalog site, specifically for .NET 4, hoping that these would fix the problem.

I have also tried reinstalling windows (after having formatted the drive again) and without any other software (not even anti virus software) running windows update.
The same thing happened; the first few updates were succesfull, but as soon as .NET 4 Client profile is installed, checking for updates fails.

I have a few files that might be helpfull namely a Network capture taken during the attempted update check, an excerpt from the WindowsUpdate.log file.

Bottom line is though, This problem only happens when i have .NET framework 4 Client Profile installed.

This is a very strange problem becuase I installed the .NET Framework 4 when it was released and have not had any issues with updates since then. Its just recently since I reformatted...

Please help!


PS:
I had to append .TXT to the .cap file in order to upload it.

A:.NET Framework 4 Client Profile causing Windows Update Error 0x8024402

So, I ended up intstalling .NET Framework 4.5 BETA and now I am able to check for and install updates through Windows Update.

Important:
- Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3021952)
- Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3004375)
- Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3023562)

Optional:
- Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2574819)
- Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2592687)
- Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2830477)

I have followed the steps from your "Windows Update Posting Instructions", and I have attached the logs to the thread as well. However, the CBS.log will not allow me to read it so I created a new sfcdetails.txt file on my desktop and included it with the zipped folder instead of the true CBS.log file (I hope that is alright). There were also "CbsPersist" Cabinet Files in the Logs/CBS folder which made the zipped file much too large so I did not include them. Let me know if you do need them and I can put them on my google drive and give the link.

Thanks!

A:Windows Update failed error code: 800F0900

This sounds to me like you may have to try going in and deleting the windows update catalog files and re running windows update and see what happens. If that doesnt solve the issue post back and we can take it from there.

I'm trying to install update KB2639308 but it keeps saying that it fails and gives me the error code WindowsUpdate_FFFFFFFE. I looked it up online and it says that it can't update because of malware. However, when I run Norton and do a full system scan it doesn't find anything. I also tried to fix it with the Windows Update Troubleshooter and that doesn't help either. Is there anything else I can do without having to fully reinstall Windows 7 like the info on the site says? Please help.

A:Failed Windows Update, error code WindowsUpdate_FFFFFFFE

Hi,

A pre-requisite for this update is having Service Pack 1 installed. Can you confirm that this is the case?

Also, which version of Norton are you running? Is it the very latest? I have found posts where running Microsoft's own MSE doesn't find any malware, yet the error this occurs, so lets try something totally different:

Please perform an online virus scan using ESET
ESET Online Scanner

Can you also please run this tool to allow us to diagnose any other conditions that might prevent this update installing:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

1. Click the Continue button.
2. Click Copy button (ignore any error messages if they appear)
3. Paste the results here in your next reply

Hello, I've been have several issues with my laptop ever since I swapped over my faulty C drive by Ghosting it onto another HDD. My troubleshooters all fail to run when I try to start them and Windows Update will not work despite the fact that I've checked and re-checked that the service is running. I've run sfc twice now with reboots in between and I've tried to repair install windows 7 using the tutorial provided by this forum, but I keep running into errors while trying to fix the problem.

I do not want to run a clean install unless I absolutely have to, but repairing it doesn't seem to work. I have the CBS log and the error codes from the troubleshooters if you need them.

A:Windows 7 repair install failed; error when trying to run Update

Start by running a couple of Startup Repairs to make sure the boot files are in order.

Post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

Did the clone hold activation after cloning? Check at Computer>Properties activation link.

If these are okay, then let's move to addressing the UPdates. Try each of these tutorials:
reset Windows Update components
System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008
Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Forums

Report back the results of each of these steps.

Is this the original Asus factory preinstall with the bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7? If so this is a corrupt install to begin with that smothers Win7 native performance. So I'd stronglly consider doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 as you'd go from one of the worst possible installs to one of the best. Once you've done it you can preserve a backup image so you never have to do it again.

I would like to delete the failed updates list in Windows 7 Update.  I have done this in the past but forget exactly the process.
 
I think you go to Windows Folder-Software Distribution.  After deleting everyhting in the folder., i think you are to restart the computer.  Once finished the list of updates in Windows Update will be cleared. 
 
Please correct if I am wrong.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

A:Failed Updates in Windows Update. Want to clear update list?

This is the way I suggest :
 
Go to start > type in cmd > right click at cmd.exe > Run as Administrator.
 
Type in "net stop WuAuServ" without quotes > hit enter.
 
Type in "start %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore" without quotes > hit enter. A folder will come up. Don't close that black window.
 
Rename file "DataStore" to "DataStoreold" without quotes.
 
Go to that black screen, Type in "net Start WuAuServ" without quotes > hit Enter. After it finished you can close it.
 
Now your Windows Update logs will now cleared.
 
Thank you.

Well; one thing i can tell ya is that when it says cannot update while files in are in use basically means you need to restart your system. Try restarting and see what happens. It may tell you either when the system is in the process of restarting; that its configuring updates. Do not do a hard power down as that can cause even more issues while its updating.

I've finally solved the problem preventing me from updating my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop from Windows 8.1 Home to Windows 10 as described in "Something Happened" What Next?.

The installation was consistently failing at the point where Windows is about to restart for the first time with a grey information window titled "Something has happened" with the information "Windows 10 installation has failed".
