Windows Update not running. Error Code 0xc8000247 when running SURT

Q: Windows Update not running. Error Code 0xc8000247 when running SURT

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.
Thanks in advance,
Mike

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Windows Update not running. Error Code 0xc8000247 when running SURT

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

Hi all-

This is my first post so hopefully I'm doing it correctly.

I've been having issues with my Windows update service not checking for updates since it says the service isn't running. I have tried various other fixes that I've seen in other threads such as running Malwarebyte and FSS. When running those tools, no issues were found.

I downloaded SURT, and while the installation will initialize, it stops and gives me a 0xc8000247 error.

I ran sfc /scannow and have attached the log file below.

I have also enclosed the CBS logs as requested.

I am running Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) and have SP1 installed. Please advise if there is any additional information that you need. If it matters, the computer in question is an HP Pavilion DV8.

Thank you,

Tom

Did you not think it might have something to do with the non-genuine notification you're also almost certainly getting?

Hello, I recently replaced a defective HDD in my laptop with a new WD Black 750G HDD, re-installed my Windows 7 image using my recovery DVDs, but can't seem to update Windows OR start Windows Defender (error 0x8e5e0247). I followed the steps from "Windows Update Posting Instructions" and am listing the results:-

1. System Update Readiness Tool installation resulted in error:0xc8000247.

2. Also performed SFC Scan three separate times and received the same "WRP found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." (see attached CBS)

When I manually try to install updates, I get "Windows Update cannot check for updates because the service is not running. Restart your computer." But if look in local services (Task Manager) Windows Update is started & running.

Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
PS: There were some programs included in the restore, Norton AV being one of them. I uninstalled it, then downloaded the Norton Removal Tool & ran that as well. I'm mentioning this because it was recommended several times in other threads regarding this same error.

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!

Sincerely,
Noodle123

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...

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

I am going to ask a quick question while SURT is running on my laptop. I am very vulnerable on that pc as the updates have not updated since reinstall of win7 sp1 yesterday. Can I turn off my internet connection while that program is running? Thank you.

A:Running SURT for update problems-Compaq C62 laptop

Since no one has offered any advice, I just kept truckin'. I downloaded and I ran the SURT package. I have been at all of this since 11 this morning and succeeded in downloading 148 windows security updates. I was told after reinstalling sp1 there would be around 200 but the windows update menu indicated that 68 were "recommended" not important. That would bring the number to 196. I think I will just not worry about those 68 as they are not "important". Hope I am back in safe territory.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.

Laptop HP G72
I installed a new HDD, WD black series 750 GB, was WD black 500GB
W7 OEM came with the laptop.
placed an image on it with Acronis for C-D and E drive.
After this windows did not update.
Tried to make legitimate through the internet and phone. No result.
When I tried the phone however, windows did start to update. But because it was 02:00 at knight I was happy and shut down the laptop. Wanted to update next morning. Next morning.....no updates possible. Phone registration did not work to get it legitimate any more!!!!!

Installed W7 with the DVD I created when the laptop was new, same result.
Looked for the error code: 0Xc8000247.
Found out that one solution could be the missing intel RST driver (thanks to this forum).
Tried to install Intel RST and installed latest Java. Error because microsoft .NETFramework 4.5 is not installed.
Tried to install microsoft .NETFramework 4.5: error, not able to install.

I even tried this found in thread on the forum:
Windows Update not running. Error Code 0xc8000247 when running SURT

======================
Open an Elevated Command Prompt
Run the following commands

NET STOP WUAUSERV
REN C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution SDOLD
NET START WUAUSERV

wait 15 minutes, and reboot
then wait 10 minutes, and open Windows Updates, and run a Check for Updates.
===================================================
NO LUCK
Now I do not know anymore.
I would appreciate any help on this.

Thank you,

Hi, my problems began with a reoccurring failure to successfully install Windows Security updates. I could manually install some, but the rest refused to install. I kind of ignored it at that point. Then I started getting a pop up in the last few days saying "This computer is not running genuine windows 7". The link the pop-up sends me to just has a page selling Windows 7 on it.

So I have a Windows 7 PC that I've been doing backups on for years and all of a sudden this error started coming up.  Doesn't matter what media I'm trying to backup to, internal, external, still happens.

This is very odd because I do regular backups and the only things that have changed are that I substantially reduced the amount of data on the boot partition in order to make the backup run faster, then I formatted the internal SAS drive I use to backup
to because the backup was going to be smaller so I thought I would start over.
Ever since I did that it has been pooched.  I thought maybe it was a disk allocation unit size problem and it couldn't see the drive but I can't backup to anything, including an external HDD I've used for awhile.

A:windows update cannot run because it is not running error

Hello and welcome lime just to get it right just what exactly have you done so far?

I am assuming you have installed the SSD and are trying to clean install 7 onto it? If so did you prepare the SSD before you started this process?

I'm writing this post to document an unusual fix for an unusual error.
 
I had MSE updates failing on a reinstalled machine. This didn't happen right after the reinstall, but only after a couple of days. The update fails and the error message is 0xc8000247.
 
This was due to Windows Update not working anymore. In the c:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log file, I found several errors with error number 0xc8000247, like this one:
DtaStor    FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC8000247
 
When I opened Windows Update, it showed a red error. And when I tried to start update, I got a message that the service wasn't running (it was) and that I should restart the machine. "View update history" showed an empty screen, although I had successfully updated this machine when it was reinstalled. Like MSE, Windows Update too failed only after a couple of days.
 
The solution is to install an Intel driver for high density drives. This laptop has a WD 1TB drive. Everything worked fine on this machine, except Windows Update (and hence MSE update).
You can find the driver on HP's site:
"Error Messages Appear During Windows Update, When Inserting Card or Using Live Mail"
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02219204&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
 
Remark that this driver is from Intel, but HP packaged it. The laptop I fixed is not a HP laptop.

Windows update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running a restart may be required.

I've restarted multiple times and it still does not work.

When I go to Services Windows Update does not show up
I'm running Windows 7 64bit

The first one is of the Windows Update error I'm getting

The second one is of the Windows Services I have to prove that Windows Update isn't showing up at all.

My computer ran some updates overnight this week, and ever since then i've been getting a popup telling me my copy of Windows is not genuine. I bought the computer a year or two ago with Windows preinstalled and haven't made any changes to my system recently. I'm still showing that my Windows is activated in Properties, but i keep getting the popup, and running the validation link from the popup itself at microsoft.com results in it just sort of...dangling there spinning, and nothing happens. Any ideas?

Hi all.
I am trying to update multiple Windows 7 64 bit systems in a Domain environment and keep getting error code 80072EFD. This only happens when the PC's are connected to the Domain. I brought one of the systems home and it updated no problem so I know it is not the anti-virus(Symantec Endpoint 11.5 for 64 bit systems) or the Windows Firewall.
I have added the update sites as suggested by Microsoft to the firewall and have tried doing updates with the firewall and Endpoint disabled, no luck.
I also tried it after uninstalling Endpoint, same results.
These are new Dell PC's right out of the box, I removed the resident anti-virus programs and installed Endpoint. I have done this many times in the same Domain for XP systems without any headaches so I am pretty sure it is a Windows 7 64 bit issue.
Even though they are new systems I ran MalwareBytes on them just to make sure there was nothing hinky on them from Dell, nothing found.
Do any of you tech gurus have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows update error 80072EFD running 7 64 bit on domain only

That sounds like it's a problem with the network, rather than the PC.
Check the network firewall settings - WU for Win7 uses a slightly different mechanism to AU/WU for XP and different ports may need to be opened for traffic.

You'll need both Windows Updates and BITS enabled.

Microsoft's KDB has NOTHING that is helping me with the below window log file. I first noticed a change when my Window's Desktop Search application wasn't indexing anything...then my Outlook 2007 search wasn't indexing. I went to the Microsoft Update website to see if maybe I needed to install updates and then I get the error message. I checked BITS and it is running..RPC is running, however, Cryptographic Services is NOT running and I get this error message when I try to start it: Could not stat the Cryptographic Services service on Local Computer
Error 193: 0xc1. Also, the Windows Firewall is unable to be started as well. I get another error message when trying to start it.

I ran a virus definitions update along with a full system scan with Norton and nothing was found.

Any suggestions?? I've already unregistered and re registered a million dll files through cmd and that didn't help either. I don't have any other third party software installed to detect spyware or adaware. I'm running on Windows XP service pack 3

Windows Update Service Not Running Error

Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running a restart may be required

This is an Acer Iconia W500 Windows 7 Pro 32-bit tablet PC. Automatic Windows Updates worked for a while then quit working with the error posted in the subject.

The system is running Symantec Endpoint Protection v 12.1.761.4971 and I have insured that the usual problematic advanced settings of "Enable OS fingerprint masquerading" and "enable stealth mode browsing" are turned off.

I attempted the automatic Windows "fixit" function with no sucess.

I have verified that the required services as outlined in other posts on this same topic are indeed running.

I applied the recommended hotfix for 32-bit Windows 7 at KB947821 to install the System Update Readiness Tool which installed. I then ran in an ECP: sfc /scannow which ran to 100% with the message: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

I like the stick as it takes little space when I want a clear desk.

My question: how to avoid a repeat of the error?
As this is a very proprietary system (uses a 32 bit uefi on a 64 bit capable device running Windows 32 bit) it is not possible to boot a repair dvd for it.
I could access a dos prompt with the imaging usb app, but dism.exe did not work until I deleted pending.xml in .../winsxs
anyways even that didn't work either, so I had to re-image & reinstall everything.
So what is the update to avoid so as not to get a non functional HDMI stick with error: Fatal error c000003a applying update operation after running updates on Windows 8.1

Hello,

I've been getting a series of BSODs on my laptop recently. It appears they only occur while uTorrent is running - which is rather puzzling seeing how I've used it for months without issues and I have made no changes to it recently (it also takes some time after the start of the program for Windows to crash, so I'm not entirely sure uTorrent is really the culprit.)

Incidentally I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my 1.5 years old laptop. Windows came preinstalled and has been reinstalled by the Sony support less than 5 months ago (together with a new HD and motherboard).

Thanks in advance,

I've scoured the web looking for a solution and nothing has worked. This includes booting into Safe Mode, uninstalling AV software, and even using a command prompt repair option from the Windows 7 install DVD.

Any suggestions on helping me resolve this dilemma are greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Cheers

Hi, I've started to get a BSOD while playing Overwatch with the "pfn_list_corrupt" error.
I followed steps to troubleshoot and used the driver verifier to find the source of the problem.
The 0xC4 error came up multiple times while the verifier was running.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

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 all, and thank you for any help in advance.

So a month or so back the HDD that came with my Acer started to die and I was fortunate enough to be able to save my data by imaging onto a new drive. But just a few minutes ago I got the "Your Copy of Windows is Not Genuine" message and am now freaking out a bit.

I attempted to run the activation software from Windows but I recieve an error 0xC8000247 when I tried, and Im not really sure how to proceed. The system info says Im activated and Ive never had a problem before with the genuine box or Windows Updates. Please advise.

Please help me in solving a windows update failure. I have windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64.

The two windows updates that fail are
System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821)
any Microsoft.NET framework both 4.5.2 (KB2901983) and 4.6.1 (KB3102433)

I found a similar thread and followed the steps in it, but no joy.
Performed SFC /scannow, but the WRP did not find any integrity violations. I tried to run the SURT tool (same tool as KB947821) by a manual download and run but it reports the "hotfix failed to install". So I don't have a SURT tool log to submit.

What's the next step?

Hello, can someone here please kindly help me with my problems re Windows Update ---

I have tried to run Windows Update on my computer and received the following error message:

I have tried the Windows Update Troubleshooter for Windows 7 from "Windows Update Cannot Check For Updates" error message when you try to install updates and got this as a result:

It seems that my computer is missing Windows 7 Service Pack 1, but when I go to Service Pack Center - Microsoft Windows, it reccommends automatic installation of SP1 with Windows Update - which I can't seem to get running on my computer. It seems that you can also download from Microsoft site and manually install onto your computer but I am not sure if I should proceed to do that...

My problem is identical to kpk13's posted 1 week ago, but the solution that worked for him doesn't work for me. I'm trying to run Windows update on a Windows 7 laptop I haven't used in a while, and get the message "Windows update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running." However, both "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" and "Windows Update" services are running, as detailed in "Windows Update Cannot Check For Updates" error message when you try to install updates". The app in .../971058 claims to have fixed the problem but I still have it. Any suggestions?

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 have seen searching for a long time to resolve my issue regarding windows update. Recently i formatted my hard drive. Upon installation of some software my windows update stopped working. Getting an error message "Service Not Running". I tried to fix using microsoft's "WindowsUpdateDiagnostic" software. It detected some errors and said resolved after fixing(except missing files).
I am unable to upload the log report as per posting instructions. Says "access denied" when i try to copy CBS folder.

Help will be appreciated.

A:Windows 7 Update "Service Not Running" Error

OK, this isn't a fix, but it's the next steps I would take because I see no one's replied to your post or mine yet. Maybe one noob can help another.

Click Start, right-click Computer, click Manage, Services and Applications, then click Services.
Scroll down to find Windows Update and double-click it.

I presume the "Service Status" is "stopped"? What's the Startup Type set at? I think it should be Automatic (Delayed Start).
If you click the Start button for the service, what happens?
That might (hopefully!) shed a little more light on your problem.
