Hi Roger, welcome to SevenForums!

Firstly I would like you to run this FixIt in Aggressive Mode:

You receive a "0x80070002" or "0x80070003" error code after you download an update from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or from Windows Server Update Services

Then I would like you to run this command:

Command Prompt

Warning: this fix is specific to the user in this thread. No one else should follow these instructions as it may cause more harm than good. If you are after assistance, please start a thread of your own.
  1. Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Command Prompt
  2. When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator
  3. When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each

    wuauclt.exe /detectnow

  4. Right-click on the Command Prompt window and click Select All, this will invert all of the colours by selecting the text, now press enter. All of this text is now copied.
  5. Paste (Ctrl+V) it into your next post please.

Then check for updates please.

Tom

I ran the fixit program in agressive mode. when finished it prompted me to restart which I did.
Opened the command prompt as administrator and pasted in the command, hit enter, nothing really happened but copied it anyway for you.

Started windows updates saw it said Most recent check for updates never and updates were installed never.

It is now checking for updates, not sure if this is good or bad but it has been 'checking for updates' mode now for 20 minutes ... thinking that is not to good. Will let it keep looking for awhile ......

Yeah, why not? Can't hurt

I'm drawing blanks on this one to be honest, I've never seen anything like it before!

Roger,

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt and run the following commands...


net stop winmgmt

(hit the Y key and enter, to respond to the confirmation - repeat the command if you get an error)
now you can copy and paste the rest -

sc config winmgmt start= disabled
cd %windir%\system32\wbem
for /f %s in ('dir /b *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s
for /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof') do mofcomp %s
wmiprvse /regserver
sc config winmgmt start= auto

WAIT for it to finish - it could be a couple of minutes

Now reboot.

see what happens with WU now, and post the new windowsupdate.log file
