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.)

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.

Hey all,

So I am currently reinstalling Windows on my dad's old laptop after the hard drive decided up die on us, and I stumbled on a problem that's a bit too hard for me to fix.

Namely, I am completely unable to install any Windows Update. Not even MSE will install.

I tried running SURT, but got error code 0x8000247
I also tried running SFC /SCANNOW, it ran the verification fase until 98% and then stated that there where unfixable problems.

The displayed error codes are:
In WU: "8024A000"
In SURT: "0x8000247"
Whilst installing MSE: "0x80070643".

Attached you will find CBS.log and MSINFO with my system specs.

If nothing has changed, try this...

Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt

NET STOP CRYPTSVC
REN C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CATROOT2 CATROOT2OLD
NET START CRYPTSVC

once complete, leave the system alone for at least an hour to rebuild the database, then reboot, and run another MGADiag report and post the results.

If neither of them work, we'll re-evaluate.

After removing a drive load of viruses, I am still not able to update Windows Vista to Service Pack 1. I have even tried to create a new admin user account in hopes that this would work, but no go. I tried running sfc.exe / scannow from the CMD and it did report that it was unable to repair wextract.exe.

Hi,
I have been having some recurring problems with the attempts to install some automatic windows updates.

Security Update for Microsoft Office Acess 2007
Security Update for Microsoft Office Outlook Junk Email Filter

I am not able to install these updates, maybe any other updates in general. After attempting the install the following install window says, "Windows Update encountered an unknown error." Next to it an error code 80070643. Microsoft provides a solution to the problem, by re-installing Microsoft NET. Framework. They also provide a link to the program NET. Framework cleanup tool that enables you to uninstall NET. Framework, and it's components.

I followed Microsoft's instructions to solve the issue, though I've been put at a standstill. I have used the NET. Framework Cleanup tool to uninstall NET. Framework and it's components (states that it uninstalls all versions, 1.1 SP1 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.) Then afterwards instructed to reinstall NET. Framework, specifically in an order, 3.5 then, 1.1, then 1.1 SP1. I start with 3.5, then as the installation starts it says that to contiunue installation I must turn off or on windows features in the Control Panel. I do so and turn off all Windows features. Then continue and it again states to turn off features in the Control Panel.

I wasn't able to continue the process, and I am also concerned that this is the same error that made me unable to install Microsoft Security Essentials, (as t... Read more

Hello all I am scouring the internet for answers but I can't seem to find any so I thought I should ask the Gurus down at the Windows Vista Forums. Anyways I am trying to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86 and all I get is this error. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

A:Windows Update Error Code 643

Hello Peacemaker,

When you try to install an update for the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5, you may receive Windows Update error code "0x643" or Windows Installer error code "1603"

RESOLUTION

To successfully install the update, uninstall all the versions of the .NET Framework on the computer, and then reinstall all the versions of the .NET Framework on the computer. You may have to work through more than one of the following methods.

Method 1: Manually remove and reinstall .NET Framework
To manually remove and reinstall the .NET Framework, follow these steps:

1. Remove the .NET Framework.
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Note each version of the .NET Framework that is already installed on the computer. Then, uninstall all the versions of the .NET Framework.
4. When you are prompted, restart the computer.

Hi all
first post, hoping you can help where my searches on Google have failed!!!

Basically running Vista, and unable to run any of the Windows Updates, each time it brings up the same error, Code 6D9E.

The only mention I have found is to uncompress the MySQL fiel in programs which I have done, but still no joy. Have tried to run update in safemode, but it wont allow me do this this either

HELP!

(Did that sound desperate...!)

Thanks

Fellow code crunchers,

Every once and a while I will have a download waiting from HP in Windows update. I will try and download it, but it always fails. I have a HP Laser Jet 600 M601 and I believe that's what the download states it is for. Below is the error message I keep getting every time I try and download it.

HP Inc. - Other hardware, Printer - HP LaserJet Enterprise 600 M601, M602 & M603 printer series (DOT4PAR)
Installation date: ‎12/‎14/‎2016 7:15 AM
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 800F020B
Update type: Optional
HP Inc. Other hardware, Printer software update released in May, 2013

I am not too distressed about this, but I am curious to know what is happening.

Thanks for your answer in advance.

John

A:error code from windows update

Error details: Code 800F020B. This apparently indicates that the device does not exist. So the update may not be applicable to your printer.

If you are not distressed about it & your printer is working well, it might be best to just hide the update, so you don't keep getting the update, & forget about it.

If you really want the update it's always best to get updates directly from the manufacturer, so go to their website & check for any updates that are applicable to particular model printer.

Hi -

The first thing I would suggest that you try is removing PC-cillin Internet Security as its firewall can interfere with Windows Updates.

Trend Micro removal --> http://esupport.trendmicro.com/1/How...n-my-comp.aspx

Reboot upon completion.

Install MSE --> http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1

I have been trying unsuccessfully to do all of the helps to get Windows Update to check for updates and install. I tried all of the Fixit and Windows Update Troubleshooter batch files, etc. I thought I was making headway this morning when it said updates would install on the next shutdown. So I shutdown. Looks like 57 updates had a failed status. When I ran the check for updates again, I get the following error code:
C80003FA

I googled and really only found the same help items I have already tried, the fixit's etc.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
 

A:Windows Update error code

We know nothing about your computer, other than it's running Windows 7 Professional SP1, so do the following in it.
Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) to the desktop.
After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
Information about your computer will appear.

For more than one year, my automatic Windows Update process has unsuccessfully tried to install (around once a day !) KB3001652 (Visual studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime). I haven't seen any problem with other automated Updates of Windows, MS Office, NET.Framework, etc....

I have tried first "Fix-It" which doesn't produce any error message. Secondly I launched "SURT", which tells me "This update doesn't apply to your computer". "SFC /scannow" doen't report any violation issue.I don't know how to do for resolving this problem.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64 bits SP1. Norton (NIS, the most recent version), "ShellfolderFix" and also Tune-Up utilities are installed on my PC. I have also tried to install KB3001652 manually after having deactivated the firewall and the "Auto-Protect" functions of Norton : no success.

Hi -
I'm not getting Windows Update to run. HP p6240f, Windows 7, 64-bit OS
When I go to shutdown, the shutdown button has an orange shield that indicates it wants to update.
If I go to Windows Update and and say "Check for Updates", it tells me to Install new Windows Update software. I press Install Now and get "windows could not search for new updates. Error found Code 8024DFFE Windows Update encountered an unknown error". When I press "Get Help with this error", I select Windows Update Troubleshooter, which opens a Diagnostics Troubleshooting Wizard, which opens "Window Update, find and fix problems with Windows Update", which runs a repeating cycle of Detecting problems, collecting files, checking registry, Resolving problems .... over and over until it finishes eventually saying that it was not able to fix all the problems. In particular is a new "Windows Update error 0x80070490(2014-08-29-T-09_02_42P)". I attach the picture. I've done this a bunch of times, including rebooting to see if that matters.

This happened a week ago and the same thing happened as in the preceding paragraph, except that afterward - even though it gave all the same error codes - the Windows Update successfully ran.

Hello,

I honestly don't know how long Windows Update has been like this on my system, I only noticed just the other day when trying to install Visual Studio Community 2015.

The error code for the update is: 80073712



The behavior of Windows Update is the same every time I open it after leaving it alone for a while:

1. I open Windows Update. It tells me there are some updates I should install (10 important, 2 optional).

2. I click Install updates. It takes about 30 seconds, then I see "The updates were successfully installed" with a green check and everything. Cool.

3. I close it then re-open Windows Update. Now says "Check for updates for your computer" with a red X. Not as cool.

4. I click Check for updates. About 10-20 seconds later it says "Windows could not search for new updates" and shows the error code 80073712.

5. I close the window and can repeat from step 1 indefinitely.



- I downloaded and installed the System Update Readiness Tool already.

- Running sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt simply shows Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation. Nothing in the CBS log. Zip file of CBS folder (C:\Windows\logs\CBS) attached below.
