Aha! - that may help a little!
Reboot and try again - then post the new WindowsUpdate.log file and CBS.log file

I was a little unsure what actions you wanted me to take so I ran SURT, and sfc /scannow.

The sfc message was different than I have seen before.

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

I can't see the contents of CBS.log.

It tells me it is 13 Mb but it only copies blank

Try this - it should put a copy on the desktop...

Open an Elevated Command Prompt and run the following command

COPY C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log "%userprofile%\desktop\CBS.txt"

See if that works and post the resulting file - compressed, please!

I did check for updates because I may be a masochist.

I got error 800B0100.

The fix is, supposedly SURT.

Have a question about Surt, please.

Does it need installed each time it's run or is it located somewhere that I just need to click and run?

Thanks

I was having this issue too. SVCHost maxing a CPU core and high ram usage. Would let it sit for hours and not work. Tried fresh installing windows 3 times with different hardware and media and still broken.

Apply this update. It fixed the windows update problem for me. Still took 15 minutes or so to get the update list, but it works now.

Joined just for this. Hope it works for everyone else.

Sorry - must have missed this before.
Yes it needs to be run/'installed' again - it doesn't actually install anything but has a huge library of repair file inside it which need to be available for access - so it loads them to temp storage then scans and replaces from the store if there's a need.

Thanks, NoelDP.

I have run from the download each time but wondered if it was installed somewhere.

I have installed the update from ju1c3.

Thanks ju1c3.

It appeared to install correctly and configured.

I'm checking for Windows updates as I type this.

Will report back on results

Yeah I just had to do this again with a laptop. After the update install I think it took 15-25 minutes to get the update list.
