Windows Update: Service Registration Is Missing or Corrupt

Yesterday, when I ran into a problem with installing an update from Windows Update. So, yesterday I ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter. The Windows Update Troubleshooter said that my Service Registration is missing or corrupt.

Can someone assist me on fixing this issue?

Try resetting the Windows Update components.

Do you know which updates you're having problems with? Please provide the KB numbers if you can. If these are optional updates (as opposed to critical or important updates) you may be able to ignore them.

I think you're good to go.

The only other thing I'd do is run a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (Option Two this tutorial.)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It's been reported that several Windows Updates starting around April or May 2015 have caused people to experience corrupted system files after running sfc /scannow.

If you have corrupted files try uninstalling the known Windows Updates that will supposedly make upgrading to Windows 10 easier. Then try running the sfc again.

marsmimar, its saying that I have corrupted files from command prompt. I have entered the following command "findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt", and it keeps saying "The system cannot find the file specified".

I noticed that you've submitted a help request to Brink. Let him take a look at your zipped file and see what he has to say. Even though he's an alien ... he's well versed in all things Windows!
