So I realized I had an issue when I was prompted by some software to install a hotfix for windows that fixes an issue with exceptions.
I downloaded the hotfix but a prompt popped up almost immediately giving me a 0xc8000222 error.
A simple search lead me to a simple solution: run Windows Update.
When I go to run Windows Update, however, it tells me that the service is not running. I've verified it is, including stopping it and starting it again with a reboot.
There apparently was an update given by Microsoft to fix the Windows Update issue but, of course, it's released as an msu so it fails with the 0xc8000222 error.
I haven't had a chance to run chkdsk yet (I can't spare the time as this is my work machine and have things to do today) though there are no other issues with my system so I find it unlikely. I did run the SFC tool though, the output log can be access here
Any ideas on how to progress would be great. Thanks.
