Windows 7: Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 Keep breaking WU Windows 7 Starter

Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 Keep breaking WU Windows 7 Starter

Since my son no longer uses his Asus PEM 1015 I was going to start using it myself. This laptop has always been kept up to date with MS updates, the Browser, AV & Flash. About a week ago I noticed Windows Updates would no longer work. It just keeps checking for updates for hours with no results & no error codes. I tried fixing it using suggestions I've read on line & using tools from MS. However the problem was never resolved.

About 3 days ago I decided to start fresh since my son was not going to use this laptop again & I did a System Recovery to bring back the laptop to it's original start day. When I do a System Recovery everything works well again until MS Updates updates my Windows Agent automatically to Windows Agent to 7.6.7600.320. At this point everything breaks down & Windows Updates runs constantly without ever finding any results or giving me any error codes. I've also tried suggestions online at this point & have used MS tools & the only thing that works temporarily is doing another System Recovery. This works temporarily until MS Updates updates my WU Agent again automatically to 7.6.7600.320 & the issue starts again. I've already done a System Recovery 4x already & everything works well again until MS updates automatically the Windows Agent to 7.6.7600.320.

Can anyone here please help me.
Thanks,
Bill

I had this problem as well as tried numerous fixes. What fixed it was upgrading the MS Windows Update Agento to the June2015 version. Go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3050265 and down to Method 2 and download the appropriate file for the version of Windows you have. Reboot your computer then install the update. Then reboot one more time. You should see the bunch of updates right away as soon as you check for updates.

Thanks I'll give that a try. Although I tried to installed the latest agent from another MS link & it just reinstalled the current one I have. Hopefully it will work.

I was able to install that update KB3050265 but it didn't fix the issue.
I ran the Windows Update diagnostic tool & give me 1 error. Before running this update I was getting 2 error messages.

Windows Update error 0x80070057 which it can't fix.
Service registration is missing or corrupt, this error has been fixed.

This is really frustrating.

Alas my joy of fixing the issue was short lived. Figured I would install office and then get all of the updates in one fell swoop. Well the 138 updates that showed up when I installed the new Windows Update Agent no longer show up at all.

Since this is not one of my main PC's I'm doing another system recovery as I type. When I start doing my MS updates I will not install any .Net frameworks & if I can install SP1 without any .Net programs I will try to install KB3050265 again.

What worries me is the fact this can happen to my main PC's.

I just finished installing SP1. As soon as WU Updates stop working again which start happening after installing SP1 & automatically updating the agent tool I'll give the DNS change a try.

It's funny because every time I install SP1 I check the update history & the WU agent has not updated yet to 7.6.7600.320. Next time I check for update it installs automatically updates the WU agent to 7.6.7600.320. And if do a System Restore to a point without 7.6.7600.320, System Restore ignore the previous WU Agent & leave me with 7.6.7600.320 even though it was not there when that restore point was set.
