Are there specific error messages or error report numbers given when it fails, or is it just apparently running, but does not find anything?

If it is running, but apparently not finding anything, just leave it for a while 'loooooong. It was reported a few recent Wu take many hours to find anything, esp if she has a lot of updates to find and install.

If its reports an error/message number, what (exactly) do report?

If his works do not, ensure that service 'Windows Update' and 'Background Intelligent Transfer' are listed and running, according to the instructions of the ' how to check if services are running' section of this article - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2730071 IF you have actually the error referred to in article, try the FixIt.

If WU and BITS services are listed and running, try to reset the Windows Update components - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058

  • Pavilion G7 1355 A9Y70EA: windows update does not

    I had to do a complete reinstall of my windows 7 and even recovery if everything else seems in good condition, the function of windows update does not work despite my now do a restore complete 3 times and also executes all microsofts fix programs for this problem, also tried several fixes YouTube, but nothing works , are getting desperate now. He said only updates and the small bar just keep on crossing of forever with nothing else to be... Help...

    Thans for the answer, I understand what you say, it's just that, until I discarded the computer a few days before (by foolishly following a tip to youtube to speed up computer that has totally stopped it start) windows update worked very well and it has been since a windows 10 installation and a removal of windows 10 the next day a few months ago. The folder c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution/windows/download exist with only 2 files with names very long gibberish and it is only 15 kb and the other file is 39 k, which seems to be far big enough for any update. I was wondering if instead of the clean install from the recovery partition would be any different doing a clean install from the recovery disks that I did when I got the laptop? see you soon

    Made no difference with update disk and these 2 small updates are only updated Adobe and after 3 off straight, the bar is still meandering along, my update history shows only updates from 2012 when win7 was installed everything first... * beep * Microsoft!

    P. S.

    Yesterday, I decided I had enough and started to install windows from a download 10 earlier, but after it began, I thought "no you know you hated" so I canceled the installation. That's about 3 hours later when I went to stop the laptop it says close and install the updates, so, after 4 hours of installing updates 251 and restarted then installed another 41 updates, then again on the next closure, so basically, I think that the few installation the windows 10 made seemed to start updates to speed?

  • Reformat and re-install XP SP2 but now struggling with the updates. Windows Update does not work. Loading SP3 will fix this?

    After repeated BSOD (FLTMGR_FILE_System 0x000000F5, 0 x 00000066, etc.) errors usually 7 to 8 minutes after the start, I reformatted the drive C: and re-installed XP SP2.  But since then, I had a very hard time updated.  I even got again the WORC and had to go back to a previous restore point after installing IE8.

    Service Pack 2

    I recently updated my hard drive. 500g to 1 T. Transfere/clone old drive to the new drive with Seagate Software.

    Now, I can't run Windows update. I get a message that windows update may not run because the service is not running. You may have to restart your computer.

    • I restarted my computer and I still get the same message.
    • I run services.msc and it says that the service is started. (auto delayed)
    • I tried to run the windows update agent and I got this error 0x80000ffff

    How can I get the service that is running correctly and get windows updates. Windows crashes me because of the change of equipment? Nothing led me to reactivate. If I need to reactivate, how I do that. I see nothing in the system menu.

    Thanks for any help.

  • Profile of user does not periodically; Windows Update does not work

    I had the "the user profile Service has no logon. Failed to load the user profile"and did a system restored about two months ago. I had the same error once again and followed the instructions that I got from a help forum to identify my user profile when the computer starts. Then I got the error again and did a system restored again. Two things have happened:

    1. about every fourth time that I reboot, it loads to a temporary profile.

    2. Windows Update does not work. The error that appears when I try to run Windows Update is 80070005 "unknown error."

    Help! What's next?

    Corruption of the profiles can be caused by several things: malware infection, bad drivers, corruption of file system of Windows due to stops unsuitable, due to lack of material (RAM and disk hard first "suspects"). You need to know what caused the corruption.

    You must be at Service Pack 3 level before you can use Windows updates.

    To determine which service pack is currently installed on your computer, follow these steps:

    1. Click Startand then click run.
    2. Copy and paste, or type the following command, and then click OK:

    winver

    A dialog box displays the version of Windows and the service pack that is currently installed on your computer.

    If you haven't already done so, you will need to install the SP2 and SP3 (SP1 note no longer exists).

  • Windows Update does not... (error 0x800A0046)

    original title: Windows update does not...

    Windows Update will not work... asked me to define my security settings for IE (userdata persistence) that has actually been the correct way. I even tried the www.update.microsoft.com movement in a trusted location. I keep getting error (0x800A0046) even with the persistence of data user defined correctly and this field set to always allow cookies. Any ideas?

    It's on Windows XP sp3, IE 8. I have some problems with Visual Studio 2008 and just uninstalled/reinstalled this weekend and noticed this problem when I went to look for updates after a fresh install.

    I did have previous problems with updates on this machine.

  • Windows Update does not work after the hard drive has been replaced

    Hello
    I have the same problem, replaced in my Toshiba HD, rebuild from Sysimage, Windows Update does not work. A ran "fix the problem with the Microsoft Windows Update is not working.
    Problem still exist.
    The message that I got while trying to update: "Windows Update cannot currently check updates,
    because the service is not running. "You may need to restart you computer.
    Stop and then restart the service, still no luck.

    I ran Windows troubleshooting. He finds two problems with Windows Update components, it corrects.
    The problem still exists.

    Another interesting fact:
    After the reconstruction the new disk, user account control does not recognize Windows programs.
    for example: execution of Perfmon.exe, the Publisher is unknown! However, when I download the program Windows FixIt, Publisher is recognized as Microsoft Windows. It seems that user account control does not recognize the Windows programs that had found the new HD, but acknowledges those who is downloaded from the internet.
    I guess there is a problem with the license, Windows was preinstalled on the Toshiba and replace the hard drive could have caused a few conflicts of licensing.

    The same problem. Cloned old HD on a larger hard drive. Everything worked perfectly except NO indexing and update WITHOUT windows - the two recurring problems that seem to appear on the forums after a change of hard disk.

    INDEXING resolved with change to "Intel rapid storage technology." Google what I put in quotes, choose the Download Center and get the specific to your OP and the controller software.

    UPDATES have been a little more frustrating. The microsoft .fixes and convenience stores were without help.

    Go to control panel / system and Maintenance / administration tools

    Select Services

    Stop the Background Intelligent Transfer Service

    Stop Windows Update

    In 'My Computer' go to Windows / Software Distribution

    Right-click "DataStore" folder. Rename it to Datastore.old

    Rename the folder 'Download' Download.old

    Return to Services and restart the Background Intelligent Transfer Service and Windows Update.

    Look for the updates. It will take some time because you deleted the database.

    I hope this helps!
