Click on each of the Step tabs and perform the indicated processes if you have not already done the same or similar things.

DO NOT run ComboFix or TDSS Rootkit Remover on the Step 1 tab without supervision from one of our malware experts though. They can cause significant damage if not used correctly.

Click Start. If you did not perform Step 4 to create a registry backup, you will be prompted to do so. I strongly urge you to do it.

Click the Unselect All button then select just the items shown in the following image unless directed to do otherwise.

DO NOT check the Restart/Shutdown System When Finished box as you will want to see anything that happens during and at the end of the repair process.

Click Start and let the process run to completion. Record error messages if there are any then reboot.

Yes, you have built in wireless: 802.11n usb wireless lan card

What was the status of it in Device Manager?

Also, read here: Error: 0x80070005 when you try to install updates using Microsoft Update or Windows Update

RaUI.exe belongs to Edimax Wireless Utility.

Can you post a picture of Device Manage with Network Adapters expanded please.

You could try a System Restore if you have a restore point that was created prior to your having the Windows update problem. That will also restore the registry to the same date.

It shows the 802.11n adapter which is your built-in one, right?

Do you have a working internet? Can you browse the web?

Did you try the suggestions at the link I gave you above?

Also, just found this one:

I tried many things to fix this and here is (the simple!) fix that worked on my Windows 7 32 bit PC:

Stop the Windows Update service.
Rename the folder c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution
Create new folder c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution
Restart Windows Update service.

Hope this helps someone else!

Just got a note from one of the other folks here that mentioned this may be caused by your anti-virus software, so try disabling it then doing the update. Re-enable when done.

i think the adapter that is showing is the usb one as it disappears when the the dongle thingy is removed
yes i have internet, but only with the usb thingy plugged in
yes, tried the link..i am the administrator
could you explain how to do what dave in kansas did, i have no clue where to start

regards

Right, no built-in then.

To stop the Windows Update Service.

Press Windows key (next to left Ctrl key+ + R to open the Run dialog window.
Type services.msc and press Enter.
Scroll down to Windows Update.
Right click on it and select Stop.

To rename the folder c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution and create a new one

Open Computer
Double click on C:
Scroll down to Windows and double click on it
Scroll down till you see SoftwareDistribution
Right click on it and select Rename
Change the name to SoftwareDistribution-old

Click on the Windows (C:\Windows) folder so it's highlighted, then click on
New Folder on the toolbar line. Call it SoftwareDistribution

Restart Windows Update service then try the update again.

Edit: Also, try disabling your anti-virus software then try the update. Re-enable it again as soon as it's done (work or fail).

Hi vistasucks, :wave:

I've been discussing this issue with Ztruker "behind the scenes". I have a couple questions if I may.

First of all:

Is this the same computer that you posted about here? I need to know because what is in the OTL logs could help eliminate some of the questions I have.

Second:

Is this computer a desktop or a laptop? The Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller that is displayed in your Device Manager is your Network Card for an ethernet connection. Have you tried to use an ethernet cable to connect that way?


For the update issue I'll need to know what OS is installed and if it is 32 or 64-bit. In the link to the other thread you posted the computer is a Win7 64-bit. Is this the same computer?
