  • "Windows could not search for new updates" error Code 80041054

    Almost SIX months to find a solution to this problem.  Countless emails, phone calls, try this and try that.  I bought this laptop in May and was NEVER able to perform an update.  I tried everything I can think of and everything that has been proposed in e-mail from Microsoft.  I gave up any type of phone support - repeated "disconnection".  I can't reinstall Windows Vista because it came pre-installed.  I'm really just fed up.  I bought Office and Outlook - or work correctly.  I bought some software today (Roxio VHS to DVD) and I am unable to use it because it requires an update of Windows!  I did some research on this and found others with the same problem that dates back to 2007 - not answers on the Microsoft forums!

    Any ideas?  I tried Mr. Fix - it.  I downloaded the standalone installer - took about 45 minutes of so-called 'install' - and then nothing!  He never did any kind of scan and now I can't even find it on my computer.  I'm ready to make the leap to a Mac.

    It comes with Vista, upgrade install and activate Forum.

  • Windows could not search for new updates, error 80070003

    I get the above opinion whenever I try to run Windows Update.I tried to run Microsoft Fix It, it says that it's been fixed, but not luck.

    Hello

    Method 1:

    I suggest to disable the anti-virus program and then try to install the update.

    Disable the anti-virus software

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/disable-antivirus-software

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Method 2:

    If the problem persists, I suggest you to start the computer in a clean boot state and check if you are able to install the updates.

    This could happen if one of the substantive programmes is in conflict with the proper functioning of your computer. To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: when you are finished troubleshooting, follow step 7, mentioned in the article to start the computer to a normal startup.
