actually i wound up downloading "windows updates downloader" instead. you can download all updates in recent history and select the ones you want to install based on posting date. i just grabbed all (like 7 of them) that have posted in the last month before i started having this problem (again). no one is responding so i guess no one cares, but if anyone does a search in the future this will be helpful i hope.

sure, but i guess it really is not a solution, just a workaround. honestly i find it really annoying that there is no actual solution from microsoft. even a repair installation won't work. that's very annoying. why would windows updates not work anyway? especially if the copy of windows is legit and activated.

There are all sorts of things that can cause Windows Update to return errors. Here's a couple of common ones:

  • Interference from AV (be it firewall, or file protection)
  • Hard disk faults (can cause registry corruptions - example)
  • Bugs in Windows Update (there are far too many 80B0100 errors around for it to be normal, so we think that there is a bug somewhere)
  • Registry cleaners (caused 2500+ errors in this thread
There are lots of other causes, those are just a few that came to mind. MS is potentially responsible for one of the above, if our suspicious are correct, but the rest are third party software.

i use avast, but i have not ever used a registry cleaner on this computer. i guess it could be a hard drive, but nothing became problematic until after i got my RMA motherboard back. even though i didn't change the hardware at all, windows somehow probably got buggy and thought the chipset got reset. a fresh reinstall is just such a pain, especially because only the OS in on the SDD and everything else is on an HDD. i guess if that windows updater tool works, for now that will be enough for me.

After changing the motherboard you may need to reactivate your system with Microsoft. Sometimes even changing the motherboard with the same kind you will have to reactivate.
