Windows 7: Not Genuine issue (it is) & Windows Update: Service isn't started

Not Genuine issue (it is) & Windows Update: Service isn't started

Hi,

My parents PC has run into some issues with genuine advantage (it is genuine - has been running fine for a year or two) and in attempts to fix that i've caused more issues (i know, i know ). Please note this is my parents PC, not mine - specs are not per my profile and it might take a while to get back to you at times.

Updates are set to notify, but not install. When i try to "Check for updates" i get the error:

Windows Update cannot current check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart the computer.

I also cannot update AV definitions in MSE.

Needless to say, a restart doesn't resolve. Firewall is TinyWall and has been opened/switched off at times to see if there was a communication block but all looks ok there. Internet connection is also fine.

I assume the Genuine issue is preventing updates, although 'service not started' is a mystery. When i try to "Resolve Online Now" (activation) i get an error running/installing the downloaded file WindowsActivationUpdate.exe:
"Update installation failed. Error information - 0x80072EFD (0)"

I don't know if this is helpful but i've seen it be asked for often enough so i've included it. MGADiag says (removed license/hash):

This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers -

Installing the Intel Rapid Storage Drivers
try downloading and installing them from here - https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=22194

(you want the iata_enu.exe download)

Once complete, please reboot twice, then post another MGADiag report.

The problem was the genuine update and the updates. I tried to fix it by stopping and starting the update service and that's about it for memory. I renamed a folder too, software distribution. But put it back. Sorry, i visit once a week so history is sketchy. I used to know more about Windows than i do now, having diversified somewhat to Linux and AmigaDOS.

I'll do as suggested in the prior posts and get back to you (it'll be a few days probably - before i visit again).

Cheers.

Hi, i tried running the fixit tool but it didn't work after reboot. The Intel drivers DOES appear to have worked. After two reboots i'm installing updates.

Bloody marvelous.

Thanks again - this is the best Windows 7 help site i've ever come across.

Cheers.

EDIT. Oops - here's the MSDiag...

Those drivers do work for 80%+ of such cases - most of the rest are fixed easily enough, but some require a repair install or even a clean install.

Glad it worked for you.

Good luck.
