Update Error


Windows defender message says windows defender is not working properly. I was to go online to get microsoft support knowledge base article (kb) but i did not understand what to do. What prompted my concern was 1) my windows could no longer get updates and 2) a skype message telling me that i had malware on my computer - but i do not know if this message is legitimate. I do  not know for sure if i have the malware or not. In any event i am not able to receive updates.

Error - 0x80090008 On Update

I'm on windows xp sp3. I use avg a/v 9. 0. 733. I don't use 3rd party firewalls - i use a router that's properly configured. All 4 of my antispy/malware programs say "all clear".

I have automatic updates on, but it hasn't dl'd anything since dec. 8th 2009. When i go to manually update, i receive " the website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. "  With a 0x80090008 error code.

I've searched everywhere, and only find confusing conversations about error logs and such. I can't help feeling that it's a corrupt .dll or something.

Update Error 646

I tried manually installing the updates but i get a message that says these updates are already installed. When i use windows update it informs me to install those same updates for my computer and the shutdown button has the install updates shiels that doesn't go away no matter how many times i shutdown. Very annoying, just started happening about a week ago. Also i noticed that ie is running slower and freezes and acting funnyif i can use sfc /scannow usually fixes windows problems. I use to be able to use it in previous windows but now can't use, says i have to be logged in as administrator to use. I am the administrator.

Automatic Update Error

My other computer is currently running win7 home 64-bit has a startup error. I am assuming it has done an automatic windows update as it worked fine last night. Started it this morning and just as it gets to the windows loading screen i get the message "applying update operation 50 of 50 (registrymachinecomponents. )"The screen is frozen at this point and will not load windows. I have tried rebooting but it does nothing but offer loading windows normally (which goes back to this) or doing a startup repair, which then fails, reboots and back to this. I cant get into windows or a desktop at all. Anyone help please?

Silverlight Update Error

Using windows 7, silverlight update kb979202 returns error code 64c. I have tried to uninstall silverlight both in safe and normal modes, neither will allow uninstall.

Update Error 8024402f

I formated my computer today, installed windows 7 64-bit home premium and hopped on to do the update thing and i can't get it to connect. I have no anti virus installed - other than defender - as the first thing i wanted to do was update windows. I have attempted to stop the windows update service, delete the software distribution folder and start it again, and nothing happened. Norton or mcafee have never been installed on this computer. Is there anything i can do?

Update Error Code 646

I have two different computers in the house, both running windows 7 64-bit. My laptop has failed to install the following automatic updates during the last week, always giving error code 646:

Update for 2007 ms office system   kb981715
Security update for ms office publisher 2007   kb980470
Update for office onenote 2007   kb980729
Office outlook 2007 junk e-mail filter   kb981433

My desktop computer had no problems installing these updates even though both computers have basically the same startup configuration. Is there a work around for this or a place where i can go to try to manually install the updates?

Update Kb972270 Error 80070643

I have recently found out that my laptop is not updating properly, such that windows update always gets stuck at kb972270, giving error 80070643. I run win 7, and i do not have office 2003, which seems related to the error, the patch is regrading some font security patch, which i think does not concern .net, but still i tried reinstalled .net to no avail.

Could any one kindly inform me if this is the problem with the patch or just my laptop, because i do believe that there was once when i accidentally shut my laptop off(pull plug) when it was doing a shutdown update. Perhaps that was the root of the problem, but i did do a recovery after that.

Update Error Code 80070424

I think i have read every thread on here and other places about this error code, while i'm not super tech savvy i really need to fix this problem because i can not update anything on my computer. I can not use my itunes for my new ipod is very very frustrating!

I read somewhere on here that the problem may steam from having norton on my computer previously, my computer (hp w/ vista home premium) came with norton. After reading about it i uninstalled my current protection (free avast) and ran the norton uninstall tool from their web site (i did this today) and still no luck.

Update Error Code 80072ee2

System - windows 7 home premium 32 bit, no service pack, upgrade from vista sp2 cannot download any updates. Before upgrading i removed mcafee so there is no antivirus at all, never been any other kind on the system. Tried some workarounds from the forum but no luck. Cannot download mcafee either from mcafee.com but can download just about everything else. Find this very strange. Been building, repairing and upgrading pc's for 20 years and first time became stumped. I am a qualified technician but cannot for the life of me figure it out.
