Windows 7: always getting failed updates, shows error code 80070057

16 Nov 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

It could be a stuck MSI installer. Open a command prompt and run as administrator. type
reg delete HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftSQMClient WindowsDisabledSessions /va /f using copy/paste then hit enter, close command prompt and reboot. Now try the updates again.
I'm sorry roadrunner, but that command is invalid :) maybe something is missing with that command

i'm sorry because i dont have a dvd of windows 7 of my own because this windows version is OEM, and unfortunately i dont have a system restore points to the state where there is no problem with windows update. and i am in INDONESIA.

I have tried about your solution, but when it comes to SFC part where i have to put sfc /scannow command on cmd, it only runs to 12% then it says windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation

Try running the CheckSUR tool - it may be able to repair the system enough to get SFC running properly.
