  • Windows Update error code 646 & dt000.

    Received the Windows Update error Code 646 & dt000 does not allow the following 2 updates be installed (KB976382 KB981725) what I need to do.

    Sorry, you have problems getting your patches installed. I have a number of things for you to look at.  First of all, yourBackground Intelligent Transfer Services set toAutomaticand started and Windows Update ? They both should be started. You can check these settings by typing services.msc in the search box of the start menu.

    Sometimes in order to get patches to install correctly, you must perform these tasks manually. Click each of the links below and click on download and run.  You must accept the agreement and then click on continue.



    If this does not work, try to run the Microsoft OneCare safety scanner.  Sometimes it will solve problems of hidden registry, or can clear the virus that can prevent the installation of the patches: Click full service scan, and thenQuick scan (full scan takes a long time to complete). Try the patches.

  • Pavilion dv6t-2000: Post recover process reimage disk - windows update error code a 8024, 000


    After replacing my old HDD with a new SSD, I successfully used my purchased 1 & 2 recovery discs to reload Windows 7 x 64.  Now, I am able to connect to the internet and navigate through Internet Explorer, but I can't get Windows Update to work.  I get this error: Windows Update 8024A 000 error Code.

    I researched and found this fix:

    However, after you follow the steps to stop services, rename the specified files, register the dll, and then finally to leave the services, I'm still having the problem.  I also ran a utility "fix" looking for issues with the Windows Update utility, it has been correctly executed and said it solved the problem, but the problem persists.  I get more a 8024, 000 of the error, but the update still does not work.

    I don't him have not yet tried this, because of the weather, but will plan no later than today:

    In safe mode, access c:\windows\ and rename C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to SoftwareDistribution.old.
    OK and restart.

    I also tried to upgrade to the latest version of the Windows Update utility which has as well.  I can install other applications (e.g., Norton anti-virus, java, adobe flash player) without problem.

    I noticed that I have not installed ServicePack 1, I did before as I have reimagee my computer. I need to install this first?

    Anyone has any ideas, or did I miss something?

    Your help is appreciated!

  • Windows Update error code 8E5E0147 when installing KB968930 update

    I have windows vista and when I try to install update KB968930, I get the Windows Update error code 8E5E0147. Nothing seems to fix this error. Any suggestions?


    There could be various reasons for the updates to fail. No matter what security software installed on the computer may crash or services related to the programs installed on the computer. Also if there are corruptions in the files\folders related to Windows updates.

    Reset update components would actually try fixing the part of corruption by recreating these files and also to re-register the files necessary .dll (Dynamic Link Library).

    Some users corrected this problem by resetting the components of windows updates. Try these steps and check the result.

    Temporary disable the firewall/security settings and check if it makes a difference.

    Do allow him back course so that your computer is protected.

    Method 1: Reset Windows Update components.
    Log on as administrator.
    a. visit
    b. click Microsoft fix and run successfully.
    c. restart the computer once the tool is run.


    Method 2: I recommend you perform the clean boot.

    Put your boot system helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.

    See the following article in the Microsoft KB for more information on how to solve a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

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

    Note: After a repair, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 7 in the above article.
