Ok Now that you’ve downloaded everything, here is the precise process. Please don’t skip any steps or it may or may not work properly for you. I’ve included the 32 bit links even though most people have problems with the 64 Bit.
1. Click Start, type in CMD, right click the search result “command Prompt” and left click on run as administrator, click yes
2. In the “elevated” command box, type in NET STOP WUAUSERV and press enter, after service is stopped, install the first on you downloaded earlier (KB3020369)
3. Click close after in finishes
4. Click back into the command box and again type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press enter, after service is stopped, install the second one you downloaded (KB3125574)
5. Restart the computer at the end when it asks you to do so.
6. Click Start, type in CMD, right click the search result “command Prompt” and left click on run as administrator, click yes
7. In the “elevated” command box, type in NET STOP WUAUSERV and press enter, after service is stopped, install the third download (KB3102810)
8. Click close after in finishes
9. Click back into the command box and again type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press enter, after service is stopped, install the fourth download (KB3112343)
10. Click close after in finishes
11. Click back into the command box and again type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press enter, after service is stopped, install the fifth download (KB3172605)
12. Restart the computer at the end when it asks you to do so.
13. Click Start, type in CMD, right click the search result “command Prompt” and left click on run as administrator, click yes
14. In the “elevated” command box, type in NET STOP WUAUSERV and press enter, after service is stopped, install the final downloaded file (KB3161664)
15. Your updates will now work! You’re Welcome

Hi,
I don't see how installing multiple update clients in a row is of any help
1) KB3020369 & 2) KB3172605 Done.

Maybe I should have also mentioned that by installing this way you will only have about 65 updates left instead of 275. it's much quicker to update this way than wait for Windows update to have to install all of them.

Hi,
Well this is not the clean install thread it is to fix an older existing install with updating issues so a lot of the updates you post would either be installed already or not able to be installed
Here is the clean install thread post #2

I'm sure I'm experiencing something like this error, endless checking, so I'm tagging on to this thread. I'm helping someone with a machine that is not mine. I discovered that their updates have been failing or cancelling for months. They swear they have not cancelled anything so not sure where this is coming from unless windows itself gives up after time.

The machine was looping. Down loading or attempting to download the same 24 updates. I ran the Microsoft Updates trouble shooter. It reported back it could not fix two issues. 1) Service Registration is missing or corrupt and 2) Windows update error 0x80070057 followed by the date and time in brackets. I reran trouble shooter and it clear the first issue "Service registration is missing or corrupt. I powered down the computer. Once it had booted I went into Windows updates and the 24 had disappeared.

I then clicked on checked for updates. It has been going for hours.

Would the two KB's you mentioned Thrashzone be a recommended fix in this situation or does the forum think there are other courses of action I should take. I don't want to rebuild so I thought I would ask first.

Thank you.

Thanks. I did see something about making sure the decimal point was in the decimal field and I saw dashes in the date presented. I will check and fix this.

Can I ask what registry entry ( or a link ) needs to be adjusted. I'm not in front of machine but when I saw all the failed and cancelled I'm sure I saw Windows 10 in list. I would like to have this info in hand when I get a hold of the machine on Friday.

Thanks again.

Hi,
Well 10 related stuff all I can show is what I personally have not installed so if you see them don't install them yet
Also be sure the update settings are sorting Important updates properly by excluding Recommended updates from being mixed up with Important updates
