Preferred Solution: Windows Update; Error Code 8000FFFF + Unable to uninstall update KB929777

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 have re-installed Vista 32bit Home Premium (again!) on my Dell laptop wirh 4GB RAM. Running Windows update installed around 90 updtaes. One failed - KB929777 with error 8000FFFF. Tried several times.

Forums/MS suggest removing three registry enties from Hkey_Local _Machine as follows:

None of these are in the registry.
Where do I go from here (apart from bonkers mad!)

Looking for a lead now. Give me a sec

Alright, I think I got it. I hope this helps. This is from the MS technet forums:

Hi guys, seems like a recurring problem here. The fault is registry based and there's a simple solution to this one, it works for both 32 & 64 bit OSs. When you have tried to install this update restart and you'll be confronted with WU (Windows Update) saying an installation failed and it will allow you to a) try again or b) install - do neither! First click your start menu and look to see if the red shut down button has a ! on a shield - this means "shutdown & install" updates. if it doesn't show this click option a or b above until it does. Go to "Programs & Features" and click "View Installed Updates" (top left of dialogue box) - you then get a long list of KB?????? files, scroll down until you come accross the KB929777 update (i know! it must be installed if it's in the list! this is where the probl...

Hello there. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit.
I've been having issues trying to update windows recently, so I've come requesting assistance.

A:Windows 7 Update Error Code 8000FFFF

Hello Benjamin and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything.
However, I recently began having problems with updates very similar to yours. I poked around and found out that a Windows Update from May 7 (KB3022345) was causing issues for a lot of people. See this previous Forum thread:

Windows 7 update (KB3022345) causing corrupt files

I uninstalled and hid the offending update and ran the Microsoft Fixit tool. It solved my problems.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058

Another possibility that might help is if you have a System Restore Point from before the issues began. You could try restoring your computer to that earlier time.

System Restore

Hopefully others will jump in with additional suggestions.

Days and Days of trying to repair this. This: Windows will not update. Periodic messages that my Windows is not genuine. One entire day of failed installation of clean install with Windows 7 USB stick provided by Dell. A few hours with a very sweet techie, who did the most basic stuff. I have run I think everything I could find on the internet. Nothing has worked. I've not tried the clean install in 2 days; at this point I don't want to give up on the repair, now that I've invested half my life in it. Help?!

A:Error Code 8000FFFF and Windows 7 Update

Commonly this error is caused by moving the Windows partition.





Quote:
On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui.exe 0x2a 0x1AD' to display the error text.
Error: 0x1AD


... although I also see references to MDAC in a Google search.
The error is extremely rare, and there are no currently-known solutions, but let's do some basic checks first...

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)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file


Also...

Open Event Viewer

click on the Windows logs entry in the left pane to expand it.

Now click on the Application entry - wait while it loads.

Click on 'File' in the menu bar and select Save...

Save the file as Appevt.evtx

Repeat for the System log

then zip both, and upload them.

Looking at my update history, it appears as though updates have been failing since September 9th. I'm hoping the MGADiag report below will provide some useful info for the guru's on this forum.

Hi all,

Instructed to create a new thread for this error.

I am running w7 x64 ultimate.

As per the instructions Windows Update Posting Instructions here are my results

1) SURT
still running

2) sfc /scannow
No problems, nothing in log (no CSI entries)

3) Error code is 8000FFFF, additionally two errors are logged in event viewer when trying to run the update file manually (Windows6.1-KB2758857-x64.msu)

-a- Error: Windows update client
Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8000ffff: Security Update for Windows (KB2758857).

-b- Error: WUSA

4) CBS.rar attached

5) Other things tried

Apart from running various microsoft fixit utilities suggested elsewhere, I also tried to run the update with msconfig, selective startup, only windows services active, and of course failed.

A:Update fail w7 x64: KB2758857. Error code 8000FFFF

Your CBS logfiles are generating at a very high speed - and it's therefore likely that you have a huge amount of corruption.
There is no CheckSUR data in your upload - either you uploaded before it ran, or it failed before being able to generate a log.

please try again......

Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

CHKDSK C: /R

and hit the Enter key.
You will be told that the drive is locked,
and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, and then reboot.

The CHKDSK will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) -
then run the SFC.

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.
Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and attach it to your reply.

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.
Cheers and many thanks in advance,
Nommy

CBS.log MSINFO32.nfo

A:Windows Update error code 8024A000; unable to install any update.

That's very reminiscent of similar errors in Win7 - and I wouldn't be surprised to see it being non-genuine.
Please post an MGADiag report BEFORE doing the below potential fixes.

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

Installing the Intel Drivers
try downloading and installing them from here -
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...&DwnldID=17882

(IATA89ENU.exe)

Once complete, please reboot twice, then post another MGADiag report.


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.

Do a Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware scan/s

(the scans can be done in safe mode - tap F8 on power up)

Hi, When I try to use Windows Update I get an error message 8000FFFF. I have looked up some solutions, one of which tells me to launch REGEDIT and then go into HKLM|\components. I realise that I am very slow here but when I use the 'SEARCH' function on Vista and type in REGEDIT it just populates an evert growing list, rather than acting as just a search for REGEDIT. The solution suggested if I could ever get to REGEDIT under Components delete PendingXmididentifier NextQueueEntryIndex and AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving. Anyone know if this is a good solution but more importantly HOW DO I ACCESS REGEDIT!!!! Sorry for being so slow, Mick

Hello everyone,

recently i started having a pop up saying "your windows version is not genuine..." (text from memory)
(my windows is genuine, already installed when I bought the Asus computer)

I tried to update windows (quite a few updates to do, I could not use the computer for more than a month) thinking that it would solve the issue, but unfortunately the updates all stop with error 8000ffff.

Following the microsoft help, I tried this solution: Windows Update - erreur 8000FFFF . It was not enough to solve my problem.
Following your advice, I downloaded Microsoft Genuine advantage diagnostic tool, result is below.

I am also in the process of installing "System Update Readiness Tool (SURT)" (just taking a lot of time to finish). I will update the post with the results when (if?) it finishes and I can save the results.

I also did a scan with Avast, it came out clean.

EDIT : attached the CBS logs

Can you please help me understand the problem, and how to correct it?

Thanks,
Erwann

I have been trying to install the latest windows 7 updates for several days and all of them (14) keep failing. The same error is received for all of them, Error 8000ffff. I researched what the updates were for and it looks like they are for Windows 7 x64, I have Windows 7 x86. Also, just before this happened I started getting an error message that my windows was not genuine. But I ran the activation and it says it is genuine (I have had Windows 7 Professional for a couple of years). I did some googling and ran into several post that suggested uninstalling KB971033 (for the windows not genuine error), so I did that and the error message no longer shows.

The windows Malicious Tool update worked just fine.

Any ideas?

A:Windows 7 Update failed error 8000ffff

Uninstalling KB971033 just hides the problem, it does NOT solve it.
Please reinstall KB971033 from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971033 and then post an MGADiag report.


Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

Hello,
I play a lot of PC games, and in one particular game, I have been having a graphical glitch. This is apparently related to the Windows KB2670838 update, and many people on various forums have solved the problem by removing this update.
I first tried removing the update from 'Programs and Features -> Installed updates', but get an error 0x80073701 'referenced assembly not found'.
Instead I tried to uninstall using the command prompt 'wusu', then tried again in safe mode, and even tried uninstalling IE10, the apparent cause for this update in the first place.
None of these attempts have succeeded for one reason or another, and I wondered if anyone has any help?

A:Unable to uninstall windows update KB2670838, error 0x80073701

Rsstn welcome to SevenForums

when you ran wusa /uninstall /kb:2670838 did you run it inside an Elevated Command Prompt ?

Open up an Elevated Command Prompt. Click on in type CMD . Right click on CMD under Programs (1) choose . On the User Access Control window click on the Yes button . Command Prompt opens up to C:\Windows\System32>_

then type

wusa /uninstall /kb:2670838 and press <ENTER>

Hello,

I am stumped as to why my Windows 7 Professional X64 system will no longer accept updates.

When I try to run updates via Microsoft updater I get the 800b0109 code.

When I try to run the WIndows 7 SP1RC1 I get:
"A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a toor certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider."

When I try to run the Windows Readiness Tool I get:
"Installed encountered an error: 0x800b0101. A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a toor certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider."

I have ran Malwarebytes from safe mode but it comes up clean.

When I try to run Windows Update for important updates the system downloads and installs the updates.
I am then required to restart the PC.
When I do so I get the following:
"Failure Configuring Windows Updates"
"Reverting Changes"
The pc then re-starts and tells me I need to install the same important updates.
The updates causing particular problems are:
KB2922229
KB2843630
KB2928562
In addition I am unable to install the Internet Explorer updates issued last week.

I have been able to install optional updates but no important updates since 10th April 2014.

I have tried:
Standard Windows Update from Control Panel
Manual installation of the updates
Also tried in Clean Boot
Manually re-set Update Components
All with Anti-Virus and Firewall turned off.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

shayneacids,

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please follow this procedure.

Be sure to delete the existing logs first as explained in the procedure.

Upload ( do not post inline) the resulting SFCDETAILS.TXT file.

System File Checker – SFC

System File Checker checks system files and restores them if possible.

System File Checker places results in:
%windir%\logs\cbs

My preference is to empty the abovementioned folder BEFORE I run SFC.

How to empty the “results” folder
? Run CMD.EXE as administrator
o WIN | type CMD.EXE | do NOT hit ENTER |
o CTRL + Shift + ENTER key combo | YES button
? Type following commands, each followed with ENTER key
o CD %windir%\logs\CBS
o DEL *.*
o EXIT

To run System File Checker:
WIN | type CMD.EXE | do NOT hit Enter| CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER key combo | YES button
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Enter SFC /SCANNOW
When System File Checker finishes---

If you do not see:
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Then:
? Type EXIT to return
? RESTART your computer
? Run sfc /scannow again

At my wit's end. Cannot find the right answer anywhere. I had to use restore points to get Media Center TV Pack installed on SP1. It is working pretty well. Windows update had lots of problems but finally got SP2 reloaded. Now I'm looking to get Windows Live Family Safety installed, but it requires Platform Update. I read about how this fails because of issues in Update, but the "fixes" don't do any good. I've tried using the FixIt. I've tried installing standalone Update packages, related and unrelated. I've tried the manual fix that edits the registry. I haven't seen any other suggestions, besides start all over with a new install of Vista and try to do it all in sequence the right way the first time. I'm not even sure what that would be anyway and I really don't want to start all over just to get a peripheral bit of software to work. Anyone else find the "magic key" to this problem that is not sharing it out on the Internet?

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?

I've tried sfc /scannow several times before with different results: sometimes finished with no errors, sometimes finish with unfixable errors and sometimes didn't finish at all.

I uploaded the CBS.zip

Hope you can help me, thanks.

When I try to install KB3182373, a "Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight", Windows Update reports failure with the message "Code 643 Windows Update encountered an unknown error".
I ran WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab. It reported that "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem".
What can I do to fix this? I'm running Windows 7 Professional.

I didn't see any posts about this, so I hope I am not double posting.

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. Also, the file reportingevents.txt located in %system root%\windows\softwaredistribution\reportingevents.txt lists "Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80070490".
Although, I think Windows Defender can update. I need to take a break.

L.S.,

When I try to uninstall my old version of Java via Add/Remove programs it uninstalls all the way through, but at the last moment comes with the following message: Internal error 2330 . 23 C:/programs files/java/jre1.5.0_02/bin/client.

I cannot find anything about this on the web? Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks, KoosHopeloos

A:Unable to uninstall Java 5 update 2: internal error 2330. 23

Hi

Thats a Windows Installer error.

"Internal Error 2330: Error getting file attributes: [3] GetLastError: [2]"

Which version of Windows Installer do you have?

You can go into C:\Program Files\Java and delete that folder. It will delete the software from your computer as long as its not running.

Then if you download the latest update 10.. jre 1.5.0_10, it will overwrite the necessary keys and you should be fine.

Latest Java Runtime Environment: J2SE(TM) Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10 has been released
Latest Flash version (if you don't yet have it): Flash 9.0.28.0 has been released

See if that helps

RE: WIN XP PRO SP3
Unable to uninstall or update Java 7.0.70 to patched 7.15 version. Tried via add/remove programs, Revo Uniinstaller Free Version and Java RA. Used offline Java installer. First error:
 
C:\users\....\AppData\local low\Sun\Java\jre1.7.0_06\java_sp.dll is corrupt
Error: java_sp.dll
 
Java RA Found and removed: C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Application Data\Sun\Java\jre1.7.0_09 and Found and removed: SOFTWARE\JavaSoft. 
 
Used Java RA to try and uninstall 7.0.70. Stated complete then "updated to latest" but will only update to 6.6. Now, when attempting online/offline uninstall getting error message "Browser Launch 1314" then it says unable to complete install of 7.15.
 
I get the sneaky suspicion that Revo nuked some files on 7.7 although it is supposed to backup all files.Was using moderate mode.Revo stated it was backing up first but then no backup listed.  Even tried a system restore before the Revo run but didn't help. Searched the registry for 1314 but no result related to Java. Searched java.com and google but all dead ends. Ran tweaking.com repair including Chkdsk and SFC also. Getting same Browser Launch 1314 error.
 
Thanks.

As some of you may recall, I have two different strings in this forum on the subject of Vista SP2 refusing to install, and as of this moment I never did get it to install in my laptop running on 32-bit Vista Home Premium. Finally, after four days of phone calls with MS Tech Support, who I am convinced were only guessing, they finally cleaned off the entire hard drive, then did a "clean install" of Vista (with no service pack). Vista still didn't work right, and finally after calling the laptop manufacturer (Dell) they got it done to where at least it functioned properly.

Now then, the latest problem is that after Dell fixed Vista and I downloaded 98 updates and such to my new Vista installation, THE PROBLEMS CONTINUE. Only 97 of the 98 updates installed. The one that did not was "Update For Windows Vista (KB9299777), a "recommended" update dates way back in 1/29/2007, and for that I have repeatedly gotten a "Code 8000FFFF Windows encountered an unknown error."

What does this error mean, and is this update really necessary? After 2 or 3 tries it remains UNinstalled, but is there really any great need for it? If so, how do I install it. After all this ongoing trouble installing Vista SP2, I am now back to Vista with NO service packs and I am going to leave it that way, simply due to all of the trouble they have put me through. Please, someone please let me know what this Code 8000FFFF means, and if you can do so please tell m... Read more

Hello Experts,

I am trying to uninstall Windows Update which was done recently in order to fix an issue but when I uninstall it and reboot my system it always gets installed back again. I also disabled the automatic update and deferred it also, I even disconnected my PC from internet and then tried to uninstall it but every time I reboot after uninstalling, these updates always get installed back again especially the security related updates.

Any clues ?
