I tried to run Microsoft FixIt and systsme even update the tool but no luck. even the system tool update crashes while ' installation of hotfix for Windows (KB947821) (update 1 of 1)...» ". No online solution proved to be correct in my case. Help, please.
Thank you

Hello

System update readiness tool will take some time, so I suggest you wait a while until the process is completed.

You can find newspapers by accessing this folder.

c:\Windows\logs\cbs\checksur.log

I would suggest trying the following steps and check.

Method 1:

Note: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

Back up the registry - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Back-up-the-registry

Methods 1 and 2 require changes in the registry to do. Make sure that you back up the registry before you proceed.

I would have you look at the article-

How to reset the Windows Update components?

http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/971058

Method 2-

I would have you look at the article-

Cannot install updates in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2

http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/2509997#appliesTo

Note: The Chkdsk command will try to fix bad sectors on the hard drive. All the data on these areas could be lost in the process. It is also possible for the computer to enter in a start State no.

Proceed at your own risk.

In addition, see the reference article-

  • Windows backup will fail with the error code: 2147942402

    Hello

    I'm trying to run a backup on a Windows SBS Server 2008 using Windows Server Backup to an external 2 TB USB hard drive - I chose the backup once and personalized with "activate System Recovery."

    This fails with an error message "the system cannot find the file specified" after having transferred about 28.23 GB of data.

    The Event Viewer error code: 2147942402

    I tried to run the backup to another device (a disk on a PC on a network) and it successfully without any problem which seems to me some kind of problem with the USB key.

    I came across these links: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979281 and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976972 - but the server I use does not have a USB Host Controller NVIDIA - instead, there "Intel(r) ICH9 Family USB Universal Host Controller" - so I'm hesitant to try this fix.

    I'll reformat the USB drive to see if that helps...

  • Windows Update of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (KB948465)

    After installing Windows Update Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (KB948465) my computer slowed down and
    I was not able to connect to my hotmail account.

    I uninstalled, or rather I went the restore point on my computer and uninstalled it.

    Why Microsoft comes up with these updates?  Very often, these mess my computer updates.

    Sincerely,

    Lucienne

    Never, EVER use system restore to 'Cancel' an update, Service Pack, or upgrade of IE!  Instead, uninstall the update, Service Pack, or the IE patch & reboot.  If that does not resolve the problem, then try System Restore.

    Who advised you to 'download... '. RegCure? Doing so could only worse issues! If you ever think that your registry database must be cleaned, repaired, boosted or optimized (it isn't), read http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=28099 and draw your own conclusions.

    Cannot install other updates windows update screws. Impossible to find answers to this specific problem, all the links seem to point to XP or windows 7

    Went to the Microsoft site and just tried to download and install just the fix KB978338, watched as she worked, system has rebooted with what looked like 266/266/registry component machine appearing on the screen just after the message of the HP bios and just before loading windows.  The PC then realized...

    Seem to be stuck in this loop that KB978338 will not install and stops all other updates installation as all fails with the error code 800F0826.

    Hi gbislay,

    I think that you are able to get on the desktop after changes have been restored.

    Step 1: Auditor of file system (CFS) scan to fix all of the corrupted system files. To do this, follow the steps mentioned in the link below

    How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7

    Step 2: Download and run the system update tool. This tool runs an ad hoc analysis of inconsistencies that might prevent future maintenance operations.

    The system update tool

     

    Step 3: Clean boot the computer

    Follow step 1 in the link below,

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Important: n ' forget not to put the computer to follow normal start-up step 7 in the link.

    Step 4: Disconnect all external devices (printers, scanner, USB (universal serial bus) readers, etc...) Except the mouse and keyboard and then try to install the updates.

    You can see the steps outlined in the article below, which deals with a similar question

    Windows Update error 800f0826

    The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message, and the computer restarts when you try to install an update in Windows Vista and Windows 7

    Note: Steps to solve the problem of Windows Update for Windows 7 is valid for Windows Vista.
