Code 80070241 in Windows update and "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file" when you try to run any program.

Windows Update has appeared today when we started one of our machines, informing us that there are some installed updates. After reviewing the updates, we clicked on the "Install now" button, and immediately, it failed with the above error code.

I tried to run regedit a reason unrelated, and it came with a dialog box error with "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might be installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged or maybe it's a malicious software from an unknown source. »

After researching here and elsewhere on google and did not find anything suitable, put us in the Win7 disk, recovery tools and tried to go back to a previous system restore point (3 days).

The restoration went well, restarted, but the problem persists.

Then, we just tried to install anti-malware software, but when trying to run the installer, we get a different error message indicating 'ShellExecuteEx failed; Code 577 "and then the same message on the verification of the digital signature.

The computer is running fine all yesterday and has worked very well since just after the new year when he has been upgraded to Windows 7. No material changes have been made, and no software changes were made by users in the course of last week.

The computer is an AMD Athlon II X 4 with 4 GB of RAM on a motherboard Asus M4A78-EM, linking a 64 GB SSD, with a 250 GB drive SATA data/programs. GPU is a Nvidia 260, and it has a CD and DVD player as well. It is connected to our router using the gigabit ethernet interface motherboards.

It was under windows 32 - bit XP SP3 up just after the new year. When we put in place the new SSD to replace a hard drive older than we have did a new install of XP (slipstreamed with SP3) and then used the upgrade 32-bit W7 Home premium DVD version to upgrade the system. Since then, the system runs flawlessley.

On the machine is MS office XP, Firefox 3.6.3, AVG 8.5 and a few games such as the Turbine DDO.

The main user account used to try to solve these problems and to run Windows Update and try installing programs is a member of the Administrators group.

Firefox works fine, serve, and he plays the games installed very well also. AVG reports to date, with no problems and has detected no threat.

However, try to view the registry with regedit, or start Viewer event or compmgmt.msc that all do appear the message "cannot verify the digital signature.

***************************************************

Can anyone offer an opinion on what might be wrong with this facility please, and how we could do to solve?

Cannot run chkdsk/scandisk as he bought the message "cannot verify the digital signature" etc etc.

This morning, the machine began to behave differently - stop playing back badly, refused to start Device Manager, open Control Panel correctly etc.

So, I reset the BIOS to boot from the CD-ROM, slapped XP SP3 in reinstalled, then upgraded to Win 7 again.

Still have no idea what caused the problem, but it seems to be gone now - reinstalled the same applications, AV / programs anti-malware, games, etc and everything seems to go fine now.

* shrug *.

    Info: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.

    * So what the hell is happening? Sorry, but am getting very frustrated by that. I noticed that windows creates a file called windows.old. Avoid the old windows, it's an empty hard disk, and it was an installation of full version. NOT an upgrade. As to why my product key does not work... not even me angry by publishing what I've seen elsewhere in these forums. I DO not pay another $200 for a different product key. This one should work. I just opened this "thing" to do the installation. So if this key was stolen, it was stolen that microsoft has packaged discs.

    Can I safely delete this file called windows.old (assuming that I can always go back to windows 7)? Do you think this has nothing to do with the problem? Or should I do what ppl do upgrades mean that they have to do... Reinstall win 7?
    * He let me use F8 for advanced options to disable the driver signature.

    Thank you! Got the product key problem is resolved. I saw on another post, you stated

    Now that address my other question as much as me have allowed difficulty delivers windows boot is seen? I see that windows 7 is a file boot.ini as previous versions of windows. I would like to see the "command-line" some win 7 has instead of boot.ini file uses. I suspect something may be there that causes the driver signature error... and tried the 'bootrec' methods above doesn't solve anything for me.

    Thanks a lot for your help in this matter. (Once I get the verify signature driver disabled it goes straight in win 7 and win 7 works fine.) It just will not be disabled whenever I start my pc. I always have to fight to get the window that gives me the ability to disable.)
