    Hello, I keep getting this error code when I try to check for new updates and when I try to watch the updates already installed plant Explorer and restarts... What should I do?

    Nasos_k31 wrote: I installed windows 7 32 bit except defender and firewall turned on, I don't have any other antivirus program installed.

    Windows Defender is an anti-spyware application, not an antivirus application. You must both be installed.

    Personal data backup (which none should be considered 100% reliable at this point) then format the HARD disk and do a clean install of Windows.  Please note that a repair installation (upgrade AKA on-site) will NOT fix it!

    HOW to do a clean install of Win7: see "using the custom installation option" and formatting the hard drive section of http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Installing-and-reinstalling-Windows-7

    Once installed the clean, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" in order to take care of everything on the next page before connecting the machine to the internet or one local network (i.e. other computers) otherwise and before using a flash drive or the SD card that is not brand new, or has not been freshly formatted:

    4 steps to help protect your new computer before going online
         http://www.Microsoft.com/security/pypc.aspx

    NB: No matter what Norton or McAfee free trial which is preinstalled on the computer when you bought will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the trial for free and download/run the removal tool before installing Windows updates and before installing your new anti-virus application.

    Even if you * know * you just did this - that in that order...

    Check your time zone and time are correct.

    Search for malware:

    Download, install, execute, update and perform analyses complete system with the two following applications:

    Remove anything they find. Reboot when necessary. (You can uninstall one or both when finished.)

    Search online with eSet Online Scanner.

    Reset.

    Now reset your Windows with this FixIt components update:
    How to reset the Windows Update components?

    Reset.

    Try to get updates.

    If it still does not work, try this...

    1. Start an elevated command prompt.
    2. Run the following commands pressing on enter after each line:

      net stop wuauserv

      CD %SystemRoot%\System32

      Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

      net start wuauserv

    3. Reset
    4. Try to reinstall updates

    * Important * When you do this, the following problems occur:

    • Updates that are currently downloaded but which have not yet been installed must be downloaded again by using Windows Update or Microsoft Update.
    • When you remove the Software Distribution folder, your download history is deleted.
    • If you currently receive updates from Microsoft Update and Windows Update, you will need to reselect this option from the Windows Update Web site.


    * Note *
    if the problem is resolved and you can successfully download and install the updates, you can delete the directory SoftwareDistribution.old to recover disk space.

  • Windows update error 80072EFD

    Hello
    I have a laptop of old P750 for 2 months, after they need to do a restore to a disk upward, I now get the above error.
    I then decided to do a cover of toshiba with a clean install and still get the same result of windows update is not not able to connect to the server.

    I tried everything I can find this error, including the verification of the proxy settings for WU, reset the proxy via CMD prompt settings.

    I noticed something interesting while control validation using microsoft MGA diagnostic tool, where windows has been listed as a hat, but note some reports as:

    Validation code: 0
    LegitCheckControl: N/a, hr = 0 x 80070002
    signed: n/a, hr = 0 x 80070002

    My understanding is the way to 0 x 80070002 he couldn't connect identical to WU or that files are missing.

    I have rebuilt that recommended such c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution records, turned off all firewall, removed antivirus / software malware but still no luck.

    It seems funny how the same thing happens even after a clean drive toshiba recovery.

    Any suggestions?

  • Windows Update error code

    I have a new Toshiba laptop, running Windows 7 (Home Premium SP1 installed by the OEM). My internet connection works fine for all sites Web except it fails when I try Windows Update. Error message code is 8024402F. I already checked 'automatically detect DNS settings' I also tried disabling my firewall (McAfee) temporarily and tried without solution. I tried dozens of times in recent days.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Hello

    According to the Microsoft Knowledge Base, it has something to do with your Internet connection. Have you already checked the Microsoft Knowledge Base?

    Microsoft recommends disabling the security software (antivirus and firewall) and try the troubleshooting Windows Update tool as described here:
