awesome man you just got my windows update working again! I've had the same problem as you. Not sure why it isn't working for you, but here's the right steps to take:

1) Download and extract this zip file into a folder

2) Within the extracted folder click on this file

3) Answer Yes a bunch of times, then reboot, then run windows update

4) Wait a few minutes for windows update to find updates, then install them

Megahertz07, you're right. I shouldn't be bothered with this at all. Do you recommend the Zeffy fix?

I get "Unsupported Hardware" pop-up with i7-4930k processor?
Hi, I was under the impression that it is common to get the "Unsupported Hardware" pop-up when using one of the newer i7-7xxx processors because Microsoft wants us to switch to Win10. But my processor is at least a few years old. Is it unusual that I'm getting this pop up? I've searched for...
