While trying to install windows updates, I get an error 57F Code - Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

For months, that I tried to install windows updates and continually get 57F error Code - Windows Update encountered an unknown error.  I'm now 9 updates important and 2 Optional updates that have failed to be updated.  I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Help, please!


Office 2007 are in guess some updates.

1. ensure that you are logoned on with an administrator account and that the computer can access the Internet properly.

2 - Insert the Office 2007 CD drive of the computer installation CD, then check if updates Office can be installed.

Did you use a registry cleaner?

    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

    Given that this option is no longer available, what are your options? See the article for more details:

    I am trying to install Windows XP Pro on an old hard drive from the laptop, beforehand I had it wiped, partitioned in two and made a NTFS format partition.

    I use a computer without a hard drive to install XP, the drive of the laptop is connected using an external hard drive box.
    The Windows XP computer on I use is a netbook without cd/dvd drive, that's why I use another computer to get windows installed first.
    The first installation is going well. I select the formatted partition I want XP must be installed. The files are copied from the XP CD on the hard drive. Then a restart occurs. The XP loading screen appears, but before the loading bar comes alive I get a blue screen.

I'm starting to think I should have bought the dvd for Windows 8.

    Hello! And welcome to the Microsoft Forums!

    From my experience with several ISOs of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, and even 10, I can tell you that the 0x8007025d error means that the installation media is corrupted.

    This type of error appears on the official Microsoft Media tool too.

    The issue seems more likely when choosing Windows 8.1 (no N or PRO).

    The issue could be fixed only by downloading the same or a different ISO image again. In addition, it flashes again on the USB port or the burn on DVD another using a speed more SLOW can increase the success rate.

    Also: Don't forget to check the SUM of the ISO downloaded to see if it matches the amount on Microsoft Download Page.

    This ensures that the file has been downloaded without problem and is not corrupted or altered somehow.

    Remember to use only the official Microsoft ISOs to avoid viruses and other security threats.
