Q: windows update troubleshooter repair windows update database corruption

This notebook was upgraded from windows 7 professional to windows 10 professional in July 2016.
In August windows 10 was updated to version 1607 (OS Build 14393.22)
There are some windows updates that have failed with either error code 0x8e5e0152 or 0x8e5e0147.
When the windows update troubleshooter is run it fixes things and then when it is run again it fixes the same things.
These fixes appear temporary or incompletely fixed.
This is an image of the windows update troubleshooter after its temporary fix:



The fixes were applied and it indicated that troubleshooting had completed.
A repeat windows troubleshooting displayed the same results.
Retrying the windows updates displayed the same failures and error codes.
sfc /scannow displayed no integrity violations.
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth completed successfully.
This troubleshooting was from another web site and it also failed:
"use Win+x and select Command Prompt (Admin), then type 'net stop wuauserv' (without the quotes) and hit Enter, followed by 'net stop bits' and Enter. You should
see confirmations that each service was either stopped or wasn't running. Next, open Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution, and delete its contents including any sub-folders. Now reboot, open Windows Update and click Check for updates.

How do you fix the problem with the windows update troubleshooter so the fixes are permanent?
And how do you troubleshoot and fix the errors for the windows 10 updates.

Preferred Solution: windows update troubleshooter repair windows update database corruption

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 am using Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1.
Windows Update has lost my update history and hangs when I tell it to check for updates. Windows Update Troubleshooter reports "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P) Not Fixed". How can I get Windows Update working again?


Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.
I rebooted my computer and re-ran Windows Update. It reported that there were no pending important updates. I clicked "View update history" and saw that the most recent 15 important updates had failed. I clicked "Check for Updates" and,
when it finished checking, Windows Update continued to report that there were no pending important updates.
At that point, I concluded that something was wrong with Windows Update. In an attempt to fix it, I downloaded and ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab). It reported one problem found: "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P)
Not Fixed".
After running Windows Update Troubleshooter, I re-ran Windows Update. It reported that my most recent check for updates was "Never", and that updates were installed "Never". When I clicked "View update history" I saw an empty

Hello, I'm new on this forum.

I ran Windows Update Troubleshooter on my mom's laptop. It found 2 problems and said they are fixed. But everytime i run the troubleshooter, those 2 problems are found and fixed. So those fixes does not seem to be permanent, and are only "fixed" when running the troubleshooter. Is this kind of behavier normal? Update seems to work fine though, except being somewhat slow checking updates.

The laptop had some general performance problems and troubleshooting WU was part of troubleshooting them.

Also, is Microsoft Fixit (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab) similar to Windows build-in WU Troubleshooter or can it do better job fixing problems?

Hello all,
I have over 500 machines running Windows 7 that's having a hard time reporting update info back to my SCCM server.  What I found is this tool from Microsoft (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2714434/description-of-the-windows-update-troubleshooter)
Windows Update Troubleshooter, which fixes the issue (so far...).  But I don't want to sneaker-net to all the machines to hand install the fix.
So my question/request is, is there a way to unattend that tool and/or script it?  Thank you.

It either just hangs up trying to start or it comes up and says service not turned on. I have checked and the service is in fact turned on. Only change I made recently was an upgrade from a 300 gb hard drive to a 1 TB hard drive. I cloned my old drive and made a partition same size as the old drive then had the rest of the drive partioned off as a separate drive letter which seems to work fine except for the problem with windows update and network troubleshooter not working.

I read up on the error. The recommendation to cure the problem was to go to Programs, Uninstall, but instead Repair the Apple Software Update application.

I tried that, right-clicked to Repair ASU, but then I got a message saying that ASU was already uninstalled. I cannot now find Apple Software Update application to re-install it. I've looked all over the Apple and Windows download systems. No luck.

1st problem: WMI corruption
I am trying to configure my wireless network connection properties, but when I click on the advanced tab to view them I cannot view them. All that appears is ,"Windows cannot display the properties of this connection. The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) information might be corrupted. To correct this, use System Restore to restore Windows to an earlier time (called a restore point). System Restore is located in the System Tools folder in Accessories." The odd part is that I can still connect to my wireless network. I completed the system restore and the problems remains. I also attempted to update to SP2 which leads to the second problem...

2nd problem: Windows Update issues
I want to update my OS to SP2. I first attempted to use automatic update. Once I am prompted to install SP2 i follow the instructions. The update always starts fine but then about 60% of the way it completely halts. No matter how long I leave the pc on to complete its process it will not budge from that point. I attempted to download the file and manually install and I had the exact same issue.

I recently had to restore my notebook to factory conditions to take care of some malware. The restoration worked perfectly and my computer was up and running. After opening Windows, I downloaded and installed the Google Chrome browser and installed or uninstalled nothing else.

This morning, however, I woke up to find a Bad Image error on one of my system32 files. The only changes my system underwent between the system restoration was the downloading and installation of an update bundle for Windows Vista and the download and installation of Google Chrome.

I searched for the problem online and found only one tech forum in which a similar problem occured. One of the admins suggested to the original poster that the windows update "reacted badly" to some software on the computer and "instead of damaging windows, it damaged the system".

I ran and sfc/scannow, 100% Verification in which the files were detected but could not be repaired.

This is not the first time this has happened. A few months ago, another Bad Image error caused me to have no sound on my notebook, this too immediately following an update.

Any solutions/similar cases out there?

Hi.

I've been having problems with my laptop recently. I actually care less when it comes to updates since it's automatic, but I noticed that it refuses to install any drivers (which means I cannot access any USB drives or install programs that requites drivers) or updates, after searching for solutions on the internet, I found out in a website that said kb2919355 causes component store corruption that is irreparable, which is the update that I have already installed. I've tried repairing with DISM but it all fails, probably because the update causes the component store to corrupt when StartComponentCleanup is triggered.

I want this to be fixed but my restore point is already deleted since it's probably too old (which is weird that I'm having this problem since the update has been installed for months). I don't want to reinstall my Windows either, so what now?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Hi,

I need a bit of advice on how to continue. Yesterday I upgraded my hard drive to a larger one. I installed Windows, which appeared to install correctly. On the first install - 3 updates were automatically downloaded and installed, I also installed all drivers for the laptop.

After everything was installed, Windows update failed:



MSE would also not install:



-As I had only just installed it, I reinstalled again. This time I installed 80 or so updates, and then various drivers. Some drivers failed to install, and the system became unstable - acting very slowly and constantly freezing.

MSE was able to install.

Installed a third time. - Currently on this install.

Same symptoms as first install, the two screenshots were taken recently on this install. The Network/Wireless troubleshooter also appears to be broken: "A problem is preventing the troubleshooter from starting".

I tried installing SP1 manually, to see if that would resolve anything. Got a catastrophic failure message, unable to install.

I've run SFC /Scannow 3 times in Safe Mode with Command prompt. - This detects corrupted files, but is unable to repair them.

Previously, and after this, I tried running SFC from the Recovery Environment. Each time this gave me a message that it was unable to run as repairs were scheduled for the computer - please restart. No repairs are ever carried out on restart.

Hello all,

Yesterday, Microsoft sent out a new batch of updates through Windows Update. However, I ran into issues when I tried to manually install the Update to Windows 7 file (KB2868116). Namely, the update seemingly hung on me; I left the update on for 20-30 minutes, but it never progressed beyond this file. I tried clicking the "stop installation" button, but nothing happened even after several minutes. Not knowing what to do, I forced a restart of my computer. I was able to boot to windows fine and was able to then manually install the other update files fine. Windows, so far, seems to be working fine; I can boot to it, run my programs and shut down fine. Windows Update doesn't show the offending update as having installed, and the update still shows up as available, downloaded, and ready to install (I right clicked on the specific update, and "hid" it to prevent it from trying to install when I shut down). I also did NOT get any error messages. However, I'm still worried that I may have broken something when I restarted my computer.

My questions are, how worried should I be that something got corrupted? If I should be worried, how do I check to see if the update corrupted anything and how do I fix it if I find something. Also, while I have the update hidden and am preventing it from installing, the actual download is still on my computer. Is the anyway to get rid of it?

Thank you.

A:How do I check for Windows Update file installation corruption?

An update that is not installed will affect your computer - and is best left alone, since there are interdependencies in the downloads.
If/when MS revise the update, it will reappear in the offered list, and whichever files are not required will be deleted while those that are still need won't have to be re-downloaded.

Hi.

I had an issue with Outlook Express. Norton Antispam wouldnt integrate with it because it didnt see it as a valid email program after an install of Office. To restore Outlook Express back to a valid email program, i had to re-install Windows XP.

I re-installed it, with no problems, logged into windows no problem. However, im trying to run Windows update to get the latest patches, the scanner finds the updates, downloads them but doesnt install the updates. It fails on every update as soon as it tries to run the install. It says that there is a problem with my computer and wont install them.

I have gone to Windows Genuine and downloaded the Genuine Windows Advantage Tool and that doesnt seem to solve the problem. I have completed numerous reboots to get it to install the updates. I have even managed to download IE7 & Media Player 11, which installed fine. IE7 said it couldnt install the latest security patches for Internet Explorer, but it installed fine, and appeared on the start menu after a re-boot as normal. Both IE7 & Media Player are functioning correctly.

I do have Norton 2007 installed, and im wondering if that has anything to do with it. I even tried turning all of Norton off, and running it then, but again no joy.

Sorry for the essay..

I've contacted HP and they want to do a complete reinstall of 8.1. I've stressed to them that I don't want to do this because it will wipe everything. I've done the DISM restore health before and it gets stuck on 20% for hours before it finally finishes and tells me it fixed some but can't fix everything. I'm running the windows media installation creation tool onto a usb. Right now it will be done in 10 hours or less.

By the way, I have a Samsung laptop that I bought new in March of 2014 that is running the same version of windows 8.1 64-bit. It has installed all updates with no problem and I've reserved a copy of windows 10. Is there anyway I can fix windows update on my HP desktop using the settings/files from the Samsung laptop?
If anyone can offer s... Read more

A:Using DISM to repair Windows update feature of Windows 8.1

HI All
My problem was solved through a combination of this thread and the following link:
https://www.winhelp.us/non-destructi...8-and-8-1.html

For my situation I created installation media for windows 8.1. The winhelp link has instructions for using the installation media tool with (or without) a product key. I didn't have a product key because windows 8.1 came pre-installed on my new HP. I did download a free program called BeLarc Advisor to get the product key for my version of windows. I ended up not needing the product key after all to create the windows.iso file for installation.

I used Rufus to create a bootable usb drive with the windows.iso file from the installation media step.

I downloaded and tried to use the DISM GUI. Unfortunately, there was no install.wim file in the sources folder. I did have an install.esd file (which is the same as the install.wim). The DISM GUI did not work with the install.esd file and I didn't feel comfortable converting the .esd file to a .wim file.

This is the point where I abandoned the steps from this thread on the eight forums website and started at the "Reinstalling windows 8 or 8.1 without loosing personal files, installed programs or apps" portion of the winhelp link.

Please note that I shut off my mcafee protection (spyware and virus, web protection and firewall). I unplugged my printer, external DVD R drive and external hard drive. I also shut off spyware blaster and spyware terminator before I began my ... Read more

Good evening, it has been a while. I got a custom built computer about a year ago so that I can play FSX and P3D reasonably well. Everything seemed to go ok, not great, just ok. This are my specs:
Intel i7 [email protected] - Nvidia EVGA GTX 970 4gb - Asus Z97 Maximus Hero VII - WD black series 1TB HD - Corsair RM series RM850 - Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 500gb SSD.
About a month ago I started to notice that my wifi connection would be lost, then come back on its own. It got worse about two weeks ago, so I tried running the troubleshooter, it failed saying an error prevented it from running. Odd I thought.
I tried running windows updater, it downloaded a number of files to update, but continuosly failed to install 3 of them, apparently related to Microsoft Net Framework.
This morning I decided to uninstall P3D, and install a clean updated version, and the setup failed, never happened before. In the forums it adviced to make sure Direct X9 is installed, tried doing that and it failed as well.
This is very stressful, and affects my immune system, which is not good for me. Can someone here please be kind enough to take some time to help me solev this mess, thanks very much.
This are some logs from what happened today.

I'd been struggling with my system freezing up and occasionally throwing the BSOD. The system would boot and run fine for about 2 minutes then it would act like it was being overtaxed, taking 30 seconds or more to respond to screen input. This is a i7 (64bit) processor with 4Gb of RAM and Process Explorer showed no appreciative activity. After hours of safemode tests removing and restoring countless third party services I found a informational error in the event log stating that the Windows Modules Installer had problems starting. So I disabled the WMI service and my system stopped freezing up ran just fine; however now windows Updates won't install. Obviously there is something wrong with the Windows installation subsystem; how do I repair this? I am running Windows 7 Pro

A:How to repair the windows update service

Here's the Services console Description of Windows Modules Installer (TrustedInstaller)
" Enables installation, modification, and removal of Windows updates and optional components. If this service is disabled, install or uninstall of Windows updates might fail for this computer. "

It should actually state " ... will fail for this computer " as TrustedInstaller is the Owner of all of the system files and if it's Disabled no updates will install.

With the WMI service still Disabled, open Windows Update in Control Panel.
Click the Change settings link in the left frame.
Click the drop down window under Important updates and set it to " Never check for updates (not recommended)"
Click OK and agree to the UAC prompt.

Now go back to the WMI service and set it's Startup type: to Manual.
How is the system behaving now ?

If the system is not stable now, then do not do any of the below steps. Instead, run the System File Checker since, according to your posted system specs, Service Pack 1 has not been installed yet - How to Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker

If the system is stable, then go here, download, and save the Fixit - How do I reset Windows Update components
When the download completes close all open programs and web browsers.
With the system connected to the internet, run MicrosoftFixit50202.msi and choose it's Default mode.
Whether prompted to or not, restart the system after the Fixit finishes running.

A:Windows 10 cannot auto repair after update

Download Fatdog64. Burn the iso to disk by right clicking on a Windows 7 and later computer and selecting burn disk image. You can use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. Backup any data on the flash drive first. Depending on your computer, attach the flash drive and tap the key to bring up the boot menu and select the flash drive or DVD drive.
 
At the Fatdog64 desktop you will see your hard drive partitions in the lower left labeled sda1..sda2..etc. Clicking once on the sdaX icon will open a File Manager. If you do not see your Windows files close out the window and select another sdaX partition. For Windows 10 the partition may be sda3. 
 
Once you have selected the correct partition attach a USB flash or external drive to the computer. A USB icon will appear next your DVD drive if you have one. Click once on it to mount and open another File Manager Window. Drag and move both windows until they are side by side. You can resize the windows by left clicking and dragging a corner.
 
Highlight the files/folders you wish to copy by holding the Ctrl key + left clicking. You can also Left Click and Window around the files/folders. Once you have highlighted your files/folders drag them from the HDD Window to the USB external Window. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quiet box.

My laptop (running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) has recently been failing to boot properly after updating Windows, and it always goes into startup repair after booting incorrectly. I can get my laptop to work by halting start-up repair and restoring to a point before windows updated, but I'll just encounter the same problem later when Windows updates again. Is there any way to fix this, and how would it be fixed?

A:Windows Update and Startup Repair

Are you running any antivirus or firewall software? It might be interfering with the update process. Try uninstalling it first.

You'll need to install the updates one by one until you find which update is causing the system to crash. Once you find it, just right click the update and choose hide update.

I have Dell XPS Q6600 with Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit.
I recently had a major startup failure, which the root cause is still unknown to me(but if I had to guess it was a virus). I tried several things to fix that issue and none of them resolved it, so I did a repair install off my Vista reinstall dvd, which installed service pack 1.
After the fresh install, I went to run windows update to catch up on the last 4 years of updates, and a few of the updates installed, but the majority did not. Each time I try to install the remaining 89 updates I get 3 errors, Code 80070570, Code FFFFFFFE and Code 8007001F.
I have tried just installing 1 update at a time and get an error each time, I get Code 80070570 when I try a single update install.

Another problem that I have(that I assume is related) A few minutes after I startup my computer I get an error message that says "Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed".
I have read online for solutions and have tried many things(but am willing to try anything and everything again). I read about trying to manually install updates, or download them off the MS website. I was able to download and install Service Pack 2 by doing that, but still have 89 updates I need to install.
Any help or solutions would be greatly appreciated. And just let me know if there is any information you need from me.
 

A:Can't use Windows Update after a repair install

If you receive Windows Update error FFFFFFFE, it means that an update can't be installed because of a problem on your computer.
This problem is usually caused by a malware (malicious software) infection. To prevent your computer from becoming unstable, Windows won't install the update.

Hey all,

HP DV6700 just replaced vista and the old HDD with win 7 x 32 and a 840 evo SSD.

Runs well, much faster.

The only problem so far with the new install is windows update never finishes and the windows update "fix" from Microsoft comes up with am error, attached.

I ran the windows stand alone update and it has been running forever and never comes up with anything or shuts itself off.
Something isnt right.

The copy of 7 is 32 bit SP1. No VPN I am using a wifi router at home, nothing unusual, other computers update.
This always connects fine upon startup.

Here is a link that Microsoft posts to fix the Windows Update error code 0x8024402C. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues.It recommends to disable any Antivirus software, while trying to do the updates. You can also skip the update as you might have the updated software already installed on your Notebook. Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the program on your Notebook and it will help with any software and driver updates on your system.Please let me know how this goes.Thanks.

I did a repair install of XP, and I thought that after that I would see tons of windows updates to install (because apparently the repair install reverts you?) But I checked windows updates and I don't see any - it says the windows is totally up to date. (Well, I did see a couple drivers, but nothing beyond that.)
 
Is this ok, or do I have to manually apply some updates or something? Computer properties says SP3 even though the xp cd I used for the repair install was an sp2 cd.
 
*confused*

A:After a repair install, is it ok if windows update has no updates?

Yes, Windows XP disks are confusing. The disks are so poorly worded and put together that many accidently press R and drop to console or do a destructive install when they wanted to do a non-destructive install. Recovery console is typically used to repair things that can't be fixed any other way such as fixmbr, fixboot, edit a config file, diskpart. However, in recovery console you can initiate a system restore from a restore point through the recovery console by using the command %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe will repair the pc from an earlier date.
 
After pressing enter and pressing F8 for the agreement you get to the window you need to be on. From there is the big decision to do a destructive install or try a R for repair install, which generally should only reinstall windows OS and leave everything intact. If there isn't a R option on that page then the disk itself doesn't have that option or, the OS is completely destroyed and it can't even detect a windows OS installed. That might be due to a MBR corruption of some sort. Which is the reason to have a recovery console to try to repair issue's like that.
 
Sometimes the disk will complain that what's installed differs from the disk. Generally you want to use the same disk that was used to originally install the OS. You can sometimes get around this using a disk that matches the OS. Since it's a non-destrcutive reinstall in theory it shouldn't touch the sp2 or the sp3. It should only replace the cor...

Great info at this site so I hope someone can help me out. First off: I am running Vista Home SP1 on a Toshiba Satellite A135 with 2GB Ram. About 6 months ago, the Windows Update of SP2 got stalled and did not finish. Since then Windows Update has not been (for the most part) updating. Additionally, Windows Explorer crashes at least 1 out of every 4 sessions. Another symptom is that the CPU usage unexpectedly spikes and the computer runs hot. I have ignored this as long as possible but tonite it made video playback on Netflix extremely choppy and that was the last straw.

Here is what I have googled and done over the last 6 hours to attempt to fix this (I know just barely enough about computers to be dangerous to myself). I suspected my machine needed an update:

1) Tried again to install Windows updates but failed. Got 80070017 error. Thought it might be a corrupted registry file. Stupidly, I ran a program called Error End that I found at wiki-errors.com. After the scan, I uninstalled Error End and went to CNET and found both Wise Registry Cleaner and Free Window Registry Repair. I had a ton of errors (1400 detected by Wise & 2000+ by FWRR) so I fixed them. Still no luck with Windows Update.

2) Found a post that made me suspect malware/virus which led me to a post on this forum. I then downloaded and ran rkill.exe with clean results. I updated Malwarebytes and ran full scan. Unfortunately, my ADD got the better of me and after 40 minutes running with 0 infections I st... Read more

Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or In-Place Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO File

When the issue with bootable USB devices occurred in the early days of the Version 1903 Feature Update, a workaround was necessary since one could not use external bootable USB media. As it turns out, I find this workaround easier to do than the conventional method with a bootable USB jump drive. If you have a Windows 10 system that still boots, you can use it too. I have also found that you can use this method to do a Windows 7/8/8.1 upgrade to Windows 10 (at least for as long as Microsoft continues to allow this to work).

First, the only difference between a Repair Install and an In-Place Feature Update (or Windows Upgrade from earlier Windows) is whether the ISO file you use is the one for your currently running version, in which case you?re doing a repair-install, or the ISO is for a newer version, in which case you?re doing an In-Place Feature Update/Windows Upgrade.

1. Navigate to the Windows 10 Download Page then activate the Download tool now button to download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (MCT). The naming convention for the tool is MediaCreationTool9999.exe, where the 9999 will actually be the Windows 10 Version number for ... Read more

Hi Folks

I an really, Really, REALLY getting annoyed with this.

This thread details the history of the issues over the past few weeks ... Black Screen after Windows Update (Windows 10) See in particular posts #17 and 18 of that thread.

I finally managed to get my Windows 10 installation working and eventually get it back to something like it was before the update borked the machine.

Now, the machine has reverted to its "repaired" state of a few days ago after a restart - all of the changes I made to the start menu and getting 'My Documents' and 'My Pictures' to point to the correct locations have been reset.

Can anyone say what is going on with this machine and OS installation?
