Error Code: 0xc0000022 - Win 7 Won't Reboot After Critical Auto Update

Windows 7 ultimate won't re-boot after latest critical auto update_error code (0xc0000022). Since installing the latest windows update (critical update) i am unable to re-boot. (10th february 2010)
The computer posts and gets to the windows screen and when about to load up into explorer i get the following error message in a box. "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022). Click ok to close the application. The actual application is explorer.exe. Application error. If i click on ok the screen goes blank. (Black screen). Hitting ctr alt del gives me the options but when hitting on start task manager i receive the same error this time the application being task manager with the same error code as above.

I am able to start up in safe mode and have tried to both use the built in startup repair (which is unable to fix the problem) and also have tried to go back to a previous version via system restore without any luck. The same errors appear each time.

Auto Reboot Problem

I have an acer aspire m7720. It has 6gb ram, a 920 intel core i7 and nvidia geforce gt230 with 64-bit windows 7. I have been using it for 6 months with no problems but lately, actually just today, it started to restart automatically after a few minutes. Sometimes it doesn't even reach the user login page and it will restart. The problem has gotten slightly better, i think, as it only restarts every hour or so now.

I don't think theres a blue screen of death, but i may be wrong, as i have already disabled the 'autorestart in the case of a system failure' option.

Error 0xc0000022

I tried to open google chrome the other day, and when it opened up i got an error message with it (the program still opened but it wouldn't load any pages) showing error code 0xc0000022. I am running windows 7 64 bit, use norton antivirus i got from my isp (though the problem started before i got that) and i am on an administrator account. There are two solutions i found online. One involved typing 2 cacls codes into the cmd as an administrator. When i pressed enter after the first of the two codes a line of text greeted me, saying 'access is denied'.

Then i tried to go to system32's properties, and change the read & execute settings for everyone, as another fix suggested. This was thwarted with a popup error message that also said my access is denied.

This should not be happening if i am an administrator, should it? I am very confused and in need of help. Another user on this computer has reported firefox and internet explorer having the same error on his account, though it doesn't happen on mine.

Total Failure After Latest Auto Update

System was running great, i did a defrag and a virus and spyware scan on thursday and was playing star trek online and browsing the web without issues. As i logged off, i got the message to wait while updates were installed, . Last night i came home to find my desktop different and unable to go online. I checked with my isp and they said it was system issues. Virus and defrag again showed nothing wrong. It will not go to a system restore, it will not troubleshoot, it will not load the windows 7 disc for me to do a fix.

I have tried to start in safe mode, which also does not work. I attempted to remove and install a new video driver and it was unable to do this. I have used all the diagnostic programs in windows and they say there are unable to load. Any ideas as the moments the updates installed i have not had a working desktop.

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 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 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.

Update Error Code 80072f8f

Ok. So i am very distressed by my problem, and after reading a lot of posts and various microsoft support pages i am going to have to insist that you not try to copy and paste some generic unhelpful solution that you throw at all the newbies. If you can't help, just don't post. T any rate, my last successful windows update was on august 3rd. The update was "security update for windows 7 for x64-based systems (kb2286198), " and it was successful. Since then, no major windows settings have been changed and no software has been installed.

However, for no apparent reason i get the aforementioned error code (see topic title) every time i try to run windows update. My first instinct was to run a google search on the error code. It produced the following two pages:

I tried every solution offered by those pages, and nothing worked. My clock is correctly set, and sync'd with time. I ran the microsoft automated troubleshooting services. No dice. So then i searched around on your lovely forums here, and found the following topic:


I attempted to correct the issue by trying every single solution provided to the user who created that topic, including reinstalling the updated root certificates and re-registering the various components (softpub.dll, etc) as suggested. I temporarily disabled my third-party security software (eset smart security 4, and yes my subscription is current and all my third-party software is up to date). Windows update is the only functionality that appears to be malfunctioning on my machine.

My internet connection is fine, pages load without trouble in both firefox and internet explorer. I have rebooted more time than i can count. I am using windows 7 ultimate 64bit.considering that you're os software costs as much if not more than a cheap computer in and of itself, i consider a problem i can't solve (seeing as how i am a computer science graduate student at fsu) simply unacceptable.

The fact that not being able to update the os effectively cripples my thousand dollar laptop, i am understandably pretty irritated. Staying up past 4am trying to fix an os bug is not a valuable use of my time, and if any more productivity is lost i may simply opt to migrate away from windows altogether. Let me know if you need more information about my configuration.

Update Unprompted Reboot

I run windows 7 prof. On my laptop and yesterday, the windows update service downloaded and partially installed some security updates. Then it asked me to save my work and reboot. I declined and delayed the notification by 4 hours. I continued doing this again and again and at the end of the day i put the laptop in hibernation. The next day (today) i turned it on again and continued my work for about ten minutes. Then all of the running applications closed themselves automatically, throwing all the unsaved documents away, after what the laptop automatically rebooted and finished installing the updates.

How on earth could this be possible?! Do i look like a slave of my os? I want to reboot my laptop whenever >i< want to, not whenever microsoft wants to!

What's going on and how can i fix this?
Thanks and sorry for my crappy english.

(By the way - i wanted to share my problem with the microsoft's technical support, so i went to the ms website, where i found out i just can't! The only option offered to me was to call them, but with a small note telling me they may want me to pay for it! What?! I've got the os legally - why would i have to pay if i wanted it to do its job properly?!)

Keep Getting Windows Update Error Code 646

I keep getting windows update error code 646. I am running windows vista and i have been prompted to install updates for (kb951944, microsoft office suite sp2, kb979895, and kb967642) along with some optional updates. I have tried several fixes like going into computer management clicking service applications to services to windows installer and changing the status from manual to disabled and then back to manual to reset things. (Didn't work).

I have also tried downloading the following commands from this forum and saving to my desktop. I then ran them under administrator and then tried to download the updates again to no avail. The commands were:

Regsvr32 wups2.dll /s
Regsvr32 wups.dll /s
Regsvr32 wuaueng.dll /s
Regsvr32 wuapi.dll /s
Regsvr32 wucltux.dll /s
Regsvr32 wuwebv.dll /s
Regsvr32 jscript.dll /s
Regsvr32 msxml3.dll /s

Saved in notepad  as register. Bat to the desktop so that it can be ran. I have searched the microsoft website to look for a manual download for these updates but i have not found them.

Update Kb982381 Error Code 80070020

After repairing the server manager refresh issue, i now get a different error when trying to apply update kb982381. The error is 80070020. I think it means file already in use by another process. The server is windows server 2008 sp2 x64. Ll cat and mum files have been replaced by known good ones. Wups2.dll has been registered. The software distribution dir has been recreated. Also tried installing the update with the web http proxy discovery svc stopped.

Tried rebooting and applying the update, all comes back to the same error. Sfc doesn't report any problems, and no usable info in the windowsupdate log. This server is the secondary node in a 2 node ccr cluster. Both servers are the same hardware, and software levels, apart from this one update. Manual install of the kb982381 - msu doesn't work either, fails with the same 80070020 error. Can anybody help?

Looping Reboot Problem After Update

I've got windows xp on a asus a8v-e-se motherboard that has developed a looping reboot problem after updates. It won't go into safe mode either. Stops at a driver screen. I've used the recovery console using the xp cd and can see the update directories in the system-root. I followed the instructions listed in the forum to uninstall each update by navigating with dos commands to the update spuninst subdirectory and then run "batch spuninst.txt".

I get a bunch of "access denied" messages for each one (varies in amount of "access denied" messages per each but consistent for each. It doesn't look like the batch uninstall for the update is working. I tried to uninstall all of the updates from yesterday 2-10-10 (i had 10) even with the "access denied" messages but it still won't boot up properly. Any way to get around the access denied messages?

Install Update On Reboot, Not On Shutdown

I have a question that i thought microsoft would have thought about and implemented years ago. When there is updates for windows that needs to be installed, why do microsoft only have the option to install these on a shut down? If there is any updates you get 2 options.

1. Shut down the computer and install updates.

2. Install the updates and hope that the update doesn't require you to reboot.

What i want is this.

1. The option to install updates when i reboot my pc because then i can install the updates if i go away for a while and the computer are updated, rebooted and ready to be used again when i get back. Even if the update doesn't require a reboot this feature would appreciated. Murphys law apples here. If you don't have the time to reboot after installing updates a reboot is required. If you do have time a reboot isn't required. And even if a reboot isn't required there is no harm done if i choose to reboot and install updates.

2. The option not to install updates when i want to shut down my pc. Sometimes i might just want to shut down the computer without having to install the update because i'm in a hurry. I don't want to have to wait for the updates to install before i can take my computer with me.
