When running Windows 7 update. I get error code 800700C1. Does any one know how to fix this? The only method that works to fix this for me is the following.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type net stop wuauserv, and then press ENTER.
Type rmdir /s %windir%\softwaredistribution\wuredir, and then press ENTER.
Type net start wuauserv, and then press ENTER.
Try to install updates again.
That was per MS instructions. The problem is. I don't want to keep going through that every time when updates roll around. It gets old.
