Like others I have seen on the forum, my boyfriend is also encountering tumultuous error with his Windows updates today..
First of all, we noticed that all of his cookies were temporarily missing.. Account names were no longer stored, history, etc.. This lasted for a few hours this afternoon.. We checked around 4PM, and his cookies were restored. Currently, they are again missing..
Furthermore, some of his programs are unlisted or just gone entirely.. He noticed that some of his PDF files had blank icons suddenly.. After looking through his programs, he found that his Adobe Reader was gone entirely.
So, we figured, maybe he should update.. Usually when things go haywire in Windows 7, the problems are caused by a lack of a necessary update (in our experience at least)... However, as soon as he searches for updates, he encounters ERROR 800b0100..
What can we do? He is about to restore to factory settings.. Please help!
