It is a little bit difficult for me to explain in English but I will describe in detail what you have to do when applying the method described by dockster in posting # 5.
As preliminary measure: Hide
(= temporarily disable) the Windows updates whose installation fails. (After the following procedure you have to restore them again.) I.
Bring up an elevated (Administrator) command prompt
This works in the following way (Windows 7):
- Click on "Start
- Type cmd.exe
- Right-click the "cmd.exe"-entry
- Choose the option "Run as administrator
A black window will open.
There you have to type exactly the following commands
You have to take care that there are correct spaces (where necessary) and no spaces (where necessary). (Make copy and paste of the commands into a word document if you cannot see clearly where spaces are and where not.)
For example: attrib -r -s -h * has spaces before -r, before -s, before -h and before *
or cd %windir%\system32\config\txr has one space: after cd
has one space: after del etc.
After every command you will have to push "Enter" on your keyboard.
Type the bold and blue letters (without the 1., 2. , 3. etc. at the beginning):
1. fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\
2. cd %windir%\system32\config\txr
3. attrib -r -s -h *
4. del *
5. Now you will have to verify the deletion of files. I think in the english version you have to push the key "Y
" (for "yes").
It will appear a list of files and the remark that access is denied. This is o.k. and can be ignored. Continue with 6.
6. Cd c:\windows\System32\SMI\Store\Machine
7. Attrib -a -h -s *.TM*
8. Del *.TM*
Close the black window and shut down your computer.
Here a screenshot how the black window looks like after entering the first four of the above commands: Bild: auffgbcbjd.jpg - abload.de
Restart your computer in Safe Mode
. (It depends on you computer how it works: Often it works by pushing - if necessary several times - the key F8 immediately after turning on the computer.)
Choose the option: "Safe Mode with Command Prompt
The black window will appear again.
In this window repeat the above steps (described in II. 1. to 8.). ---> Type the same commands as before.
After this procedure close the black window and shut down your computer. IV.
Restart your computer (in Normal Mode
Restore the hidden Windows updates again (the ones you had disabled before starting the procedure) and let them install. It should work now without any problems.
