  • Error code: 800b0100 (impossible to find new updates)

    error message: Windows could not search for new updates. The code 800b0100. Windows Update has encountered an unknown error

    doc,

    If you receive Windows Update error 800b0100, it means that a file needed by Windows Update is corrupted or missing. System update readiness tool can correct some conditions that can cause this error. To use the tool, follow these steps:

    1. go to the System Update Readiness Tool http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=947821Web page.

    Under the "Advanced information for users" section, find the Windows edition and the system type of your computer, and then click the link to download the system update readiness tool. To find your edition of Windows, see view your computer information http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/View-your-computer-information.

    Reset

    2. run Windows Update again.

    Note As a general rule, the scan takes 15 minutes or less, but can take longer on some computers. The Windows Update progress bar is not updated during the scan, and progress seems to stop at 60% complete for some time. This behavior is expected. The scan is still running and you should not cancel the update.

    The update system (or CheckSUR) tool is a program that performs a unique analysis for problems that might prevent you from installing updates on your computer. The problem above is one of the conditions that the CheckSUR tool can check and repair.

    If the CheckSUR tool encounters problems while running, it records them in a file called CheckSUR.log, located in your Windows, under Logs\CBS\ folder. On a default installation of Windows, this will beC:\Windows\Logs\CBS.

    If the problem persists after taking these steps, go to the Microsoft Update Solution Center websitehttp://support.microsoft.com/ph/6527#tab0 to find more information about the error code or to request support by e mail.

    e. click Start under Service status.

    f. click OK.

    g. Repeat steps c to f for the following services :

    CSP & Background Intelligent Transfer Service.

    If these steps do not help to solve the problem, you can proceed to the step below and check.

    Method 2

    Step by step instructions for the fixed number.
     
    (a) press the Windows key + X , and then select (Admin) command prompt.

    Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old

    net start wuauserv

    net start cryptSvc

    net start bits

    net start msiserver

    (c) wait for the course to complete.
     
    (d) close the command prompt.

    Now, try to reinstall Windows updates and check if it helps.

  • Error code: 80072EFD, impossible to find the solution to make windows update work

    OK, so I just recently returned from the school where Windows Update worked perfectly.  When I got home he stopped work at all, give me the error code: 80072EFD. (I'm using Vista Ultimate 64 bit)  I tried everything on the support page and nothing works.  It might be my router somehow or something else?

    WestCoastGirl,
    I suggest that you go get the Norton removal tool and run do so that there is no trace of it remaining.  It seems that you might have an infection already.  Take a look at this thread because it has some great info on virus\malware: get rid of malware

  • Error code 8E5E0147, impossible to get Windows Update to work

    When I try to download windows updates I get the following error code: "8e5e0147" and none of the updates will be installed. I now like 15 important updates.

    I already searched this forum and other forums of solutions, but none of those I've tried seems to fix the problem. That's what I tried:

    • Disabled Antivirus and firewall software
    • Tried to install updates and
    • Manually install the updates by microsoft download. This give me an error code, just "failed to install".
    • Run a checkdisk, no errors.
    I would be really happy for more information, which will solve this problem for me. It is very annoying. It is the system that I use if that would be any help:

    Windows 7 Edition Home Premium x 64
