Windows Update fails to update, error code 800F081F

Q: Windows Update fails to update, error code 800F081F

My Windows Update has been failing to update for a while now and I can't seem to find the solution. Here's the run-down of what happens step by step:Launch an update scan for Windows Update
It scans for a few seconds then says:





Quote:
Install new Windows Update software

To check for updates, you must first install an update for Windows Update.



Once I click Install it begins to "Install and Update," but then immediately returns to "Checking for Updates."
The next box I see says:





Quote:
Windows could not search for new updates

An error occurred while checking
for new updates for your
computer.

Error(s) found:
Code 800F081F


This happens every time I've attempted to update. After looking up the error code, I found the main Windows site that gave me the following explaination:
If you receive Windows Update error 800F081F, it means that Windows Update or Microsoft Update cannot determine the cryptographic service provider, or a file Windows Update requires (named catalog store) is corrupted.

I've looked through multiple Windows forums and How-To's and have tried all the fixes I found. SURT, sfc/ scannow, the standalone download for WU, Windows Update Diagnostic, multiple malware scans, and Microsoft Fixit. Ultimately, I always get the same error code, (800F081F).

I should also say this problem has been here for a few months now, and it's becoming more worrisome as more time passes. The longer I wait to get this fixed, the more I fear I will be hurting my computer.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated, and I will do my best to cooperate with any instructions or requests.

Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Windows Update fails to update, error code 800F081F

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.)

Hi Mookeylee & welcome to Sevenforums.

Please follow Windows Update Posting Instructions

We need to see the logs to determine the cause of the error.

Worst case scenario, and last resort, repair install windows 7. No big deal I just did 2 yesterday win7x64 Home Premium. Brink posted a great tutorial Repair Install.

Hi there,

I'm having an issue with a laptop running Windows 7 Home x64 SP1. It has failed to install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 and keeps trying every time I try to run updates.

I've downloaded the installer and tried to run it manually, but that gives me the error 0x80070002

I've attached my CBS log from the last time I attempted the install. Any help will be much appreciated!

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 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.

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.

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.

The last Windows Update I was able to successfully download was on March 16.  Since then, it fails almost immediately with an error code of 8024402C.  Underneath that it says that the last update date was Never.  I tried just running one tiny 300KB update with the same results.
 
At that time I tried to scan my Dell e6410 with Microsoft Security Essentials, but it wouldn't update either.  I finally was able to manually download updates. 
 
Neither MSE nor MalwareBytes can find anything wrong.
Chkdsk completed normally.
System File Checker completed OK.

Hi,

All Windows automatic updates have been failing since 2015-11-12. The last successful update was the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - November 2015 (KB890830) on 11/12/2015 03:17. The first failed update since then was Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3100213) on 11/13/2015 20:25.

Manual installation of the pending updates does not work. Reboot does not install the pending updates either. Another symptom was that Windows was no longer detecting my third party Anti-Virus software. I removed and reinstalled the software thinking it might be related and Windows started detecting the Anti-Virus software again but I can no longer access the computers from other computers on my home network. For now let's focus on the Windows problem which may be hardware failure induced--hardware crash/power cycle without a Shutdown.

This happened to me too while I had some installations running on the background.

I guess it's either this, or at the same time windows automatic update was running, and it just fails to notify you of that.

After all my installations were finished, or after a restart, I don't remember, the Windows Update worked fine.

My machine hasn't been able to update for a few weeks.

There was a second update of the same sort that was also not working before; I eventually managed to get that update to complete by running Fixit in aggressive mode. Nothing I've done has helped with the remaining failure, though.

Hello experts,

I have ASUS Essentio mini-pc with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 installed.
I did run virus checker, spy checker, several registry cleaners.
I spent a week on it , as well Microsoft support logged in for an hour.
I did run the batch file re-registering DLL's.
The original error 80070424 is gone since I run the "ErrorFix" utility.

My recovery CD form the manufacturer is only to wipe out all what I have installed and reload the "vanilla" system. Windows repair option is not available.
This is for me out of question, to many programs are installed on my system.

Here is the problem I think:
Windows installer is missing,
Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable installation fails. error code 1603
"Windows update" does not work, error code: 80040154

Questions
1. Is there any way to restore the Windows Installer files ?
2. Upgrading to Windows Vista Ultimate version will fix the missing files ?

Any other suggestions?

TIA

Download the Windows Update Agent installer from here - http://download.windowsupdate.com/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/7.6.7600.320/WindowsUpdateAgent-7.6-x64.exe

Save it to your desktop

Once downloaded, open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command

%userprofile%\desktop\WindowsUpdateAgent-7.6-x64.exe /wuforce

This should force the Udate Agent to install over the top of the current partially-installed one.
Once complete, reboot TWICE,
then try Windows Update again.

Hello everybody!!!

I'm trying to install SP1 on my Windows 7 x86, with intel Atom.

I tried everything. I've uninstalled, reinstalled it again all of the updates.
I have used many registry fixers, but nothing helps.
I followed many articles around the web. even from the official Microsoft blogs.
I tried the sfc /scannow, but not any integrity violated on my device.

My antivirus is the official Microsoft Security Essentials

I tried the autonomous Windows update installer, but it doesn't load.
I tried to install the SP1 thru the Windows Update:
It asks me to install the new software for Windows Update.
I click "Install Now".
The Windows update closes itself and reopen, with error 800F081F.
I never had the SP1 in this Laptop before. But now I really need it for work.

For 2 weeks now, I have been completely unable to get Windows Update to run properly on my Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate x64 computer. I have no idea what I did to cause this and I've done some limited troubleshooting to no avail. I would really appreciate any assistance you could offer.
Per the instructions, I have completed the following:

1) I ran the latest version of SURT for my OS.
2) I attempted to run SFC, When sfc /scannow is run from the elevated command prompt, I get the following error:
"Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation."

When I attempt to run sfc /scannow from the recovery command prompt, I get this error:
"There is a system repair pending which requires a reboot". Please note that I do not have a reboot.xml or a pending.xml file in my Windows\winsxs folder.
3) When I attempt to run Windows Update, I consistently get the following error code: 8007370B. Not sure if this helps or not, but when I run the updater, I usually get the TrustedInstaller.exe process running and consuming approximately 13% CPU. Sometimes the error appears within seconds, and sometimes it takes 1 hour of Windows searching for an update before that error code will appear.
4) I have uploaded my log files here: https://app.box.com/shared/static/t1...z5kai23dh5.zip
If there is any further information required, please let me know. I would like to thank you in advance for your assistance!

I receive a similar error again on our HP Pavilion Notebooks with AMD CPU when updating to Windows 10 Creator update as last time when updating to Windows 10. Our office has a few of the 17-G133cl notebook computers and all of them display the same error message: We couldn't install Windows 10 - 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 - The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation. Which is similar to the error displayed during the initial Windows 10 update except that the error shown was 0x1900101 - 0x20000. Back then a BIOS update that became available that fixed the issue. We check for a new BIOS, but all notebooks have the latest BIOS already installed v. F.41 from 9/19/2016. All other systems including other none HP AMD computers upgraded just fine.

- Microsoft Fixit
- Windows Update Diagnostic
- checked my computer with 3 different virus/malware scanners (not at the same time, and only one of them

There are no significant file errors in either SFC or CheckSUR logs.

In these cases, it has sometimes been a solution to uninstall IE9, reboot a couple of times, and then reinstall IE9 again, before installing IE10 successfully.

We're planning to push BIOS updates to all our systems in the near future. However, in testing we've noticed that some systems will fail installation with error code 211. The problem seems to be related to a changed BIOS logo, since when ran manually, the updater asks if it should overwrite the existing logo or keep it. This seems to cause problems when you run the BIOS update executable "winuptp64.exe" with the "-s" (silent) argument.Is there a solution to this, like an argument that forces overwriting of logo or keep existing? Full error log:[2018/1/24 11:40:47] version 25.26

You may want to try the following:
1) Running the following FIX-it (for resolving WUS issues)
  LINK:  ~http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058 

2) Then change windows update to "manual" update mode (as aposed to install updates automatically)
3) Scan for updates
4) Uncheck and then "hide" KB KB3033929
The update should no longer download or install going forward. 
You can then revert the WUS to ?automatic? if you desire (recommended). 
Perhaps MS will FIX and re-release this in the future. 
At that point you could choose to ?unhide? the patch and then 
try to reinstall it at that time.

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)
