Please go to this page and download Fix Windows Update by Ramesh Kumar and save to your Desktop.
(Click on the hard drive icon with a downward arrow).

  • Extract it to your Desktop.
  • Then, double-click on the program and click the Fix Windows Update button.
  • Reboot your computer and see if it will work now.

I finally got "Update Readiness Tool" to download and ran the program. On the surface, it seemed to work. Download “1 of 1” didn’t come up when I shut the computer down. But when I manually checked for Updates, there was an error. Not sure the problem is gone. Stay tuned.

 

Thanks for the Kumar link. That will be next.

Here’s where I stand: When I close out, I there is no request to wait for an update. But when I manually download updates, I have got error messages and once, the update downloaded but failed during the installation phase. I fear that I am no longer receiving Win updates automatically. Is there a way to check that?

Thanks,

Bry

What is Lennox?   What is the brand and model of the Machine.

 

Please click on the clock , (bottom right of the screen) check that the time, date and region are correct.

 

Try this fix.

Download this Auto fix http://go.microsoft....?linkid=9830262

Double click to run it.

select  Window Update bar. then click Next.

The Find and fix problems with Windows Update tool will then attempt multiple repairs. This usually takes several minutes.

Close the troubleshooter and try windows update, if still a problem, run the fix again twice, regardless if it say's problems fixed.  

 

Please note that the troubleshooter might fail to fix issues during the first run - common example is update database corruption (updates do not finish downloading, or installation never completes). In such case, just run the troubleshooter once or twice more.

Went to the Khanse site and didn't see where to click to get help with Win Updates. Ran the WIN Update bar three times. It shows a couple of errors but didn't fix them.

Thanx guys.... a really appreciate your help...

The first link gave me an error and wouldn't work, the second found an error but couldn't repair it.

 

I couldn't start the computer last night. Ran Start Up Repair for half an hour and it finally started. Took a chunk out of my battery power. No plug in.

 

Still haven't tried the Khanse fix... what do you think?

 

Much thanx....

Bry

Ran the Khanse fix. When I searched for updates the computer tried to download and install something called a Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool. The download failed.
