cannot run surt, updater fails code 80092026

Q: cannot run surt, updater fails code 80092026

good evening, I have tried following your instructions to post information regarding the error, but surt fails to execute the hotfix.
For the past month, I kept getting disconnected from my wifi, it would stop working, and could not run the troubleshooter either.
I ran windows updater, it did update some files, but failed with 3 having to do with microsoft net framework.
I play FSX and P3D, today I tried upgrading my P3D to a new version and it failed as well, never happened before.
since I could not run surt, can you please guide me thru what steps I can take, this is driving me crazy and those games are what keeps my brain distracted from thinking about a bladder tumor.
I am enclosing the error logs as well.

Preferred Solution: cannot run surt, updater fails code 80092026

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.)



I can't check for Windows 7 Updates. I get an error saying that the service isn't running, even when it is (I checked services.msc). I tried running SURT, but I get an error 0xc8000247. I tried sfc /scannow, didn't work. CBS logs are attached. Thanks.

A:Can't check for updates, SURT fails.

You're probably also getting a 'non-genuine' error??

This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers -

Dear Sevenforums,

I just installed a new HDD by WD into a HP DV7T (2008), everything has been going well up until I tried to Update Windows. I did not retain anything from the previous installation as the previous hard drive up and quit on me!

I activated windows and had it confirmed as genuine.

I followed the instructions posted on another page and tried to install SURT and got an error: 0xc8000247.

I was hoping for some suggestions, Direct X , Java, MSE and Mechwarrior Online wouldn't install.

Perhaps a driver issue?

Have a great day all!


A:New HDD, Windows will not update, cannot install SURT error code below

This error is due to problems with the hard drive drivers.
First, open Device Manager, and click on View > Show hidden devices

Are any devices showing with yellow triangles or red crosses?
If so, Uninstall them, then reboot and see if that cures the problem.

if not...

Please help me out - I replaced my defective HDD with a new Samsung Spinpoint HDD, re-installed my Windows 7 image using the recovery DVDs, and can't update windows at all after that. I tried following the steps from Windows Update Posting Instructions - System Update Readiness Tool (SURT) and could not install that update either - got the attached message.

I'm having trouble updating my newly installed Windows 7 sp1. I've tried almost every automated fix or remidy I could find but nothing has worked. I'm able to sometimes download a couple updates at a time but other times I just get a stalled install or an error code. I had the same 0x8007370B error before the clean install I did which leads me to believe the install disk could be at fault. I would really appreciate some help!

Edit: Ran the windows update troubleshooter again and got the error code: 0x80070246

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted.

Hi all.

I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong section.

Running Windows 7 32-bit on a PC we use strictly for shipping/receiving with FedEx & UPS software.

Recently started getting a message about an available download but it looks fishy to me. I tried researching bits and pieces of the wording on the internet and couldn't find anything on it. Just wanted to know if it looks at all familiar to anyone:

A newer version of this program is now available for download, but the Live Update could not be completed at this time.
While you may continue using this current version, please contact your IT Specialist and report the following message:
Code #5020 Unable to create Live Updater.
​That's all there is to it and the only options available are to click OK or click the X to close out of it. Normally these types of messages would mention contacting a System Administrator or Network Administrator, not IT Specialist. It doesn't give any info as to what application it's referring to and the service is normally referred to as "Live Update," not "Live Updater." The FedEx and UPS software gets an annual update (both of which were done months ago and have been working fine). Does anyone have any insight on this?

A:Code #5020 Unable to create Live Updater

without knowing what software you have on that computer, there is no way of knowing if it is genuine or not

I have a lightly used Win 7 laptop. And I really do mean lightly used. For the past year or so it gets turned on every month or two, I do updates, surf the internet a bit and shut it down.

Doing the June updates KB3058515 failed to install. This is Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9... The error code is 80073712.

I see reports of problems with this update but mostly for the IE11 version. Some report it does get installed but when I check About IE it shows Update KB3049563, which was from last month. Tried several troubleshooting steps including:

1.Windows Update Troubleshooter - could not fix problem x80073712
2.sfc /scannow Found problem files but cannot fix them. And this got interesting as I was not able to access the cbs.logs. I get "access denied" which seems odd.
3. I tried to update to IE10 or IE11 using WU and both fail. I tried manually downloading/installing IE11 and it fails to install.
4. I uninstalled/reinstalled IE9 through Windows Features.
5. Did a system restore to last month. Reinstalled given updates and KB3058515 still fails.
6. Made sure I had installed every update, I had hidden a few over the years but now every update except Skype and one other (see below) is installed.
7. Check Disk for error.

I think that summarizes what I have tried. Many of the steps were done several times.

Before i did this i went into my bios to enable the usb for keyboard and then restart. when it came online the new keyboard worked fine but the mouse had a code 10 failed to start. So then i unplugged the new usb keyboard and plugged in the old one. everything worked fine. So then i left the old keyboard plugged in and plugged in the new one and restart. This time everything worked fine. But if i unplug the old keyboard the mouse fails to start. I want to know if anyone knows how to fix this. i am running windows 2000 pro service pack 3 on a 1.2 ghz delron.

Hi everyone. I recently built the computer that I am on and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit in December.

Everything's been working great and no updates have had issues installing until SP1 came out today. It fails every time with error code 80004005, unknown error. I am fairly certain that it is due to the Windows Mail hack, but any attempt to restore the files back to the original versions (I've tried copying them from another machine and sfc /scannow) have not resolved the issue.

On another note, I've read that the same error came up when people did service pack installs for Vista. I have attempted many of the "best practice" fixes for these cases - disabling services, antivirus, startup entries, etc., but this has not resolved the issue, either.

Any advice/suggestions would be great. Thank you in advance!

I am working on an HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF that was ordered with a downgrade from Win10 Pro to Win7 Pro (64-bit) instead.  It's got an i5-6500 processor and 8GB of RAM.
It came with good, old IE8.  Every attempt I've made to upgrade to IE11 fails and the latest via Windows Update provided me with the code noted in the subject and says "Windows Update encountered an unknown error."
I'm wondering if this particular error code, or situation, rings a bell with anyone and if they may be able to offer guidance.

I have been trying to install SP1 on a Dell Studio desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium for 3 weeks unsuccessfully.  I have run the Surcheck and the sfc /scannow both several times and neither find any errors.  I removed the Software update log and ran several updates afterwards but SP1 update always fails.  I keep getting the same error code ending in 818.  I will attach snapshot of the error message. 
I have run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware on the PC.  I loaded the Kaspersky Rescue 10 disk and did a full scan, I ran the Kaspersky tddsrootkit scanner.  None of these programs return anything other thna a few cookies. I deleted and ran again and nothing is left.  I tried the normal update to no avail and I tried the stand-alone version of the update and they all fail with the same error.
I ran the memtest+ and there are no memory errors showing up. I mounted the drive into another PC and ran MS security essentials, still no luck after placing the drive back in the Dell.   I followed a couple of old threads I found on this web site (not the same error code but there is always hope) but found nothing that would change the results.

On an Asus laptop with Windows 8 preinstalled, I have secure boot on, AV off, but every time I try to install the update from the Windows Store I get as far as:

I've tried installing with nearly every non-windows process disabled, but that doesn't help. I've Googled the error number, but although I found instances of it (back to Vista), I couldn't find what the error was or anything helpful.

A:8.1 Upgrade fails, Error Code 0x800703f9

I've also experienced this issue. I know that on my system I managed to partially break the Windows bootloader and I've assumed that's the source of the problem, having tried a lot of other potential resolutions that haven't worked. I've tried repairing the bootloader without success so I think it's going to take a "refresh" or reinstall to solve. I don't have time to do that at the moment though so I can't confirm that that will work (I may not do it in the near term anyway because I don't trust it not to nuke the dual booting Linux partition on the same disk... which is how I managed to damage my bootloader in the first place :P)

For about the past two months Windows update has failed to run. If I try to run it manually it just sits there spinning its wheels. It does not appear to end or produce an error code.
I have seen the message "could not check for updates automatically"
I've been to the MS site and downloaded both
and the third party
Repair-tool.exe by ParetolLogic
but none of these fix the problem.
Today I have run SURT as instructed and the output from sfc /scannow is attached.
Update is still refusing to do anything.

I been trying to install update KB950125 but it keeps failing with error code 80070020.

I've tried disabling all non MS services, disabling my McAfee security centre, downloading the individual file for a single install all no luck.

I've also tried in safe mode but the installer won't run at all then.

Once windows update actually said it was successfully installed but the history said it failed and it was still on the list to install.

Any help will be very much appreciated!!

installed windows 7 sp1 from dell restore cd onto dell laptop.
have all drivers installed.
have reinstalled from restore cd 3 times now, I continue to get error code 8024402C when trying to do windows update. I have tried leaving it on fully automatic update, the no updates do manually setting, and everything in between.
IE11 and firefox get on the web with no problem, the only other software installed is security essentials and this failed update happens before installation of that. I am positive no software installed afterwards is causing this problem, as i have done re-installation of windows 3 times now including blanking the hard drive.
this last time i have manually downloaded and installed IE11 and .net 4.5.
I try the microsoft windows automated update troubleshooter which downloads windowsupdatediagnostic.diagcab. It reports:

1) windows update error 0x8024402c(2015-03-22-T-01_36_33P) - not fixed.
2) service registration is missing or corrupt - fixed.
3) problems installing recent updates - fixed.
4) problems installing recent updates - fixed.

I go into the detailed report for the above, it shows everything fixed in green including the (1) that says not fixed, and doesn't allow me to do anything else.
the other microsoft troubleshooters i've ran all say no problems detected.
what do i do from here?
the few other things i've found online i've checked, settings are already that such as internet options lan settings automatically detect.

Running Win 8.1 Pro 64bit and I have been trying for over 2 weeks to install KB3008923 - tried 8-10 times. Everything seems successful until the restart and then at 67% complete it bombs out and undoes everything. Have tried downloading and running manually (same results) and have tried the Windows Update Diagnostic Tool. The diagnostic tool finds several errors and says they are "fixed" but it lies. I can run the diagnostic several times - either restarting between times or not) and it still finds and "fixes" these same errors. And no luck getting 3008923 to take either before or after "fixes" and restart.
Error Code for the Update is 800F0922 and I've attempted fixes outlined for it including resizing the System Reserved Partition in case it was too small. Still no joy.
Running Norton Internet Security so don't know if it's got something locked out or not. I am logged in as an Administrator, so I assume that the Diagnostic and Updates run at sufficiently elevated privileges so I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be much appreciated.

After a week waiting for reply, I guess I'm the only one so afflicted, so guess I'll have to install an old system image, see if it'll update and start arguing with Microsoft about why I'm having to reinstall Microsoft Office 2013 (downloaded product) within a month of initial installation.

Since mid February, all of my Windows update patches have continually failed with and error code of 80070308. I have never had an issue with any Windows Updates prior to mid February.

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

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?

I'm hoping someone might be able to assist. Update gets to 99% and then rolls back. All other updates have completed without issue.

Win8.1, x64

Tried msconfig disabling all non-Windows components, no change.
Not running any sort of secure boot (desktop machine), not running Bitlocker.

As admin:
ran DISM /Online /Cleanup-image /RestoreHealth
ran sfc /scannow (no issues detected). CBSlog.txt file here: Microsoft services

Research on 800F0922 says that if might be caused by the GPT/EFI partition being full. It is 100MB and only 30% used and there are no disk full errors in my CBS. The MSR is 128MB (the disk is GPT). So I don't think this is the issue. Also, I do not have a Cisco VPN as that is said to be another cause of 800F0922.

Does anyone know how I might solve this?

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.

Hey guys!

So I will start by saying I am pretty tech savvy, so don't try to dumb it down for me. If I have a question, I will ask!

I did some tracking, and couldn't find the files needed, and they don't have any discs or USB's provided by the OEM. Great. That's a problem.

My second thought was to grab Hiren's BootCD v15.2 to grab anything important off of the drive (It has Linux and MiniXP. Both options failed. Kind of starting to irritate me at this point. I asked the person if anything important was on there, the answer was no, so I went with a full reinstall.

Boot into it, fails. Now I'm really mad. At this point I went into the CMD from "Repair" option in the stick. I cleaned the drive of ALL info, drive letters, everything. I created a new volume to store info, assigned a Drive letter ( C:\ ). The new drive is a RAW data storage type, "converted", got an error, checked and it said it was NTFS. Great, reboot, retry an Install -- fails.
