  • Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.
Additionally -- How do I reset Windows Update components?

I've been having problems with windows update.
Repetitive Windows updates
Also, was the .NET uninstall and re-install phase successful?

It only gives me a restore point from yesterday. Is there a way to restore it to factory settings without losing personal data?
