  • Windows Update "Unknown error" Code: 8007371C for KB2207566 security update

    I have Vista SP2, have had no problems installing updates before that point.

    I tried to install this update several times and failed. I am trying to connect to the network at my University for which I need to have all updates installed, but this particular update (KB2207566) will not be installed. I tried installing the stand-alone version and have tried in safe mode, nothing works. I've heard that there may be a problem with incompatible antivirus software, but I don't know that I have that MS Essentials for the moment. I did a full scan using this program and removed all viruses we found, I scanned the drive for errors and none have been found, I used CheckSUR SFCScan, (I think that's what we called them) as they were recommended on another forum if nothing has changed since.

    Any ideas what is the problem? I still have to do a repair of the system to see if that solves this problem, but I also think to buy Windows 7 and completely remove Vista from my PC, this will solve the situation also?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Error code 8E5E0147 for installation of windows security updates

    Hello. I noticed that no new updates have been installed on my computer (with the exception of all updates for Windows Defender but also the recent Microsoft .NET Framework Service Pack 1 and the .NET Framework family updates). Everything else, like security updates, have failed since January 13, 2009. I saw someone else who has had this problem for 9 months. The error code is 8E5E0147. Wndows update download and try to install the updates. However, once completed, it says "failed". I worry because my computer is not updated for April fool virus. Can I get any help here? I heard people say that maybe I need to ask a Windows installation CD.

    Thank you, Martin. The thing is that my .NET and service packs would have to install. Don't forget that my problem was not downloaded from the update, but the installation. I think I found the answer. My Norton Internet security and Antivirus had expired. When I got Windows security updates, I had no program to receive these updates. I renewed my subscription, and everything worked. It has not been easy. However. I had to keep doing updates on Norton security until I received the message "no new updates were found" after that, I got all the new definitions and update of WIndows was allowed to install thanks to the new KB for your help.
