Running Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Cannot update, attempting to upgrade to Win 7 professional. Discovered automatic updates were fried for some time and the system did not have SP1, which is apparently required for the upgrade.
I see similar threads, each seems to require advanced individual registry repair so starting my own - if there is a generic fix please reply with it and I can give it a shot. I have tried the normal tools to fix without change- see below.
Windows updates fails with an error code 8007370B - Windows Update encountered an unknown error
I have run SURT several times successfully
I have run Fixit 50202, MicrosoftFixit.wu.LB.133286320513446086.5.1.Run,
Each returns 'Repair Windows Update components' and 'Windows Update components must be repaired'
All claim to have fixed the problem (no change, naturally)
Attempted to run SFC /scannow from an elevated prompt and it fails with 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'. Same behavior when attempted from Safe Boot.
Downloaded and attempted to install SP1 locally, both the all platforms version and the Windows 7 x64 version. Both fail with errors.
Ran the Norton remover tool and Macafee remover tool - think Norton came with the system but was never activated, ran the Macafee remover tool just to be sure.
Have renamed the Softwareupdate folder without any change.
