Windows will not update, repair corrupted files, refresh or reset. What I'm doing.
Heyo. Im running windows 8, with about 2000 (I think) corrupted files that it contains. /sfc scannow does not fix any of them. /DISM / /restorehealth/cleanup-image online doesn't solve all these either. I can't update or repair my laptop due to files is corrupt, and all updates (about 52 GB worth of updates accumulate) do not install. I need to solve this problem, because I want to sell this laptop, it is in perfect condition except for these problems. I tried hundreds of ways to solve this problem, and none of them worked. Even tried installing the trial evaluation copy Windows 8.1 to reset my pc, but not even that would install. IM in need you guys. I'd love any help that I can get and will be willing to give something (other than money) if requested :)
Laptop comes with windows pre-installed 8. Need update windows 8.1 update, but it does not.
Thanks in advance.
Seems to me that your best bet is to contact your computer support and request a set of Recovery Disks.Note that there is usually a small fee for these expenses. Hope this helps and if you need another post to help and we will be happy to help you.

My windows will not update, I get a 80072ee2 error code?
I run Vista, and I know there have been some problems with updates in the past, would be Vista the reason why I'm getting this error?
See you soon
If Windows Update error 80072ee2 during updates, you may need to add the addresses of websites which Windows Update downloads updates to the exceptions to your firewall or 'green list '.
To add the Windows Update Web sites to a firewall exceptions list
Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list. If you are using another firewall, see Help for the software publisher to see how to add these websites to your firewall exceptions list:

(FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)

The 3ivx codec is supposed to enable WMP play

Also... the following freeware players can play QuickTime .mov files.
VLC Media Player

(just unzip and run it... (no installation required)
Media Player Classic Home Cinema
If you want to install a pack of codecs... one of the following
may be worth a try:
* Proceed at your own risk *.
K - Lite Codec Pack (full)
FWIW... it is always preferable, if you create a system restore

I have windows vista 32 bit on my Toshiba laptop. I recently reset back to factory settings using a disc of resettlement. Now she will not update. I was check updates leaving work for a few hours and it does not find all that it just keeps check found nothing. There is no error message it is just stuck updates. It says last update installed never and never last audit. It just seems to be stuck looking for updates.
Try the following: download and install all the missing updates mentioned in the table above to this page:
These are difficult to manage for the client to update. Set never 'Find updates' automatic updates and reboot before.

My computer will check for the updates, and then when I go to "install updates and then closed" update screen remains the same since more than 6 hours and not update. It is common, and so I have not been able to update my computer for awhile. Is there a way to make this work?

You had to do a system restore, now my windows will not update
I had problems with the 10 of Windows Update causing a blue error screen permanently. I tried to do a "reboot of the PC" to correct the error and it would not be completed even when left for 2 days. I finally had to restart my computer and press f8 to not get stuck in the Windows Update screen. With no system and no other available option, it was suggested to me to do a restore of complete factory restore points.
I did the restore and now I have even more questions. My windows update does not work, I update of windows troubleshooting, but it does not work and my computer says always "looking for updates" and updates are never downloaded.
My fan is running continuously since I did the restore to factory, and my CPU usage is 75 to 90%, even if I did not open any programs. Norton told me that Microsoft is responsible for the high CPU usage, but I don't know what to do about it, because I obviously don't want to disable Microsoft. I'm not sure how to upgrade my Windows at 10, or if I'm still able to now... Which sucks since I had to do due to the problems caused by Windows 10 programming initially.
Another update of the issues, I got zero problem with a feature of my computer before resetting. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
My computer is a HP Pavilion g7-1320dx laptop, and bought in 2011. Please don't tell me to get a new computer... It's definitely a software problem.

Windows will not update the screen resolution and the color depth
Out of the blue today, my Windows XP installation had its color depth and screen resolution back to the lowest setting and whenever I try to update it refuses to put up-to-date.
I even try to restart my computer and a bubble appears downstairs offering reset the color depth and resolution to my automatically. When I click, it appears as if he's trying to return to normal, but again once nothing happens - the colors and the screen resolution is still at the lowest setting.
Can any ideas on how I fix?
Here are some things to try to fix it.
Change the screen resolution.
"How the resolution screen on Windows XP"
You can also right-click on an empty desktop > properties > settings > it the slider bar allows you to increase the resolution > Apply > OK > agree in the next window, etc.
If that fixed it, have damaged you graphic drivers.
Access the site on your computer or the manufacturer of the graphics card > look for a driver download Section > search for your model number and operating system > get graphics / video / Chipset Drivers (depending on how it is formulated) > download and install.
Change the screen resolution.
You can also try a system restore before all these problems started:

Windows will not update the list of printers
When I select Add Printer witout a CD (ie. windows update) it fails and says try again
It is always recommended that get you the drivers for your hardware from the manufacturer site, in this way, you get the right driver and the updated driver.
So, if you try to install a printer without the CD, go to the manufacturer site rather than trying to do it through Windows Update.
