I'm trying to update some Windows software on my computer through the Microsoft website. As the website checks my computer for validation to continue, I'm getting the following message:

Validation Incomplete: Unable to Perform Validation
[0x80080299]
Why didnít my machine complete validation?
You have encountered an unknown error. Please contact your local product support team for further assistance with this issue. We are unable to successfully validate your copy of Windows at this time. This means that you will not have access to special content and updates reserved for users of genuine Windows operating systems.



Can anything be done so I can update my system? Please advise, thank you much.

You could try getting the updates with the windows auto updater. Do you have this enabled?
