Windows 7: Cannot download software updates error 1706

Cannot download software updates error 1706

After downloading the update I got this message when it started to install:
C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
Files\Content.IE5\5EHR53E5\Apache_OpenOffice_incubating_3.4.1_Win_x86_install_en_US.exe
The Extended attributes are inconsistant.
How do I fix this?! Am I going to have to reformat my hard drive?!
Any and all help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for the help
Sincerely
Wheelie

Welcome to Seven Forums Wheelie. Do you have a System Restore point from before this problem began? That may be the easiest fix.

another way would be to try and reinstall the software from a fresh download, not updates but the exe, it should contain the latest updates.

I have tried a system restore point, but to no avail (I have only 2 days available to me for some reason). I seem to have also lost my 'Windows Installer'. I have tried to reinstall it but can't due to this error message that continually comes up whenever I try to install a download.
Any other ideas?

I would begin by scanning for malicious items. These problems could be caused by an infection. I woul;d suggest download and run the free Malwarebytes:

You might also look into the free Windows Defender Offline:

Once you do that, run SFC -SCANNOW Command.

Establish a Clean Boot as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 since the Toshiba may still be juggling all of the preinstalled crapware starting with Windows.

If that doesn't help reset Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Forums

If that does not resolve the problems then consider a Repair Install, as a last resort before Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since running the original factory pre-install is a corrupt installation to begin with.
