Please re-try Windows Update. This puts the error at the end of all the logs, and makes my job easier. At the very least, you *MUST* have tried these updates within the last 24 hours, because some of these tools only snip the last 24 hours - for that is what I have told them to do. 24 hours is exact. lol. 24 hours and a few nanoseconds will be fine, as long as it doesn't round up the milisecond, which is the accuracy that the logs go to! lol. Too in depth!
NOTE TO OTHER USERS: The fixes for these diagnostic logs (below) are different for every computer, even with the same error code. You MUST post these logs in your own thread, and not follow any user specific fixes I post to this user. Thanks!
This applied the same to Vista and 7. Do not worry that it says Vista: Please run steps 1, 2A, 3 (about 15 minutes), 4, 5 from this tutorial System Files - SFC Command
Don't worry about the logs for the time being. I have a very good reason for not asking for them!
Download and run this tool: Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2
When it has finished installing the update, it is done!
When the above has completed, download and run FireGenUL: Altair Technologies Ltd.
A console application will show on the screen for a few seconds.
Right, this has produces a log of logs for me. Please now upload them. To do this, create a new folder on your Desktop called LOGS. Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs and copy the entire CBS folder into your new LOGS folder. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and copy FireGenULReport.htm into your LOGS folder.
Close the LOGS folder, and right click on it > Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder. Upload that new zip file. Either upload it here, ideally, or if it is too big to Speedy Share
or any other media sharing website. Uploading here is always the ideal, if only because Speedy Share is blocked at my work place, so anyone uploading there would get a slower responce, waiting for me to finish work, if I was not on holiday!
Thanks, and good luck!
P.S. I know there is a lot here. Take care!
