Windows 7: Windows Update Failing Continuously

28 Feb 2015   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Windows Update has been working as intended since our earlier fix. Sfc/scannow said something like no errors that would compromise the integrity of the system.

Interestingly, right after the last fix with the sfc/scannow, my system immediately picked up additional cache that could be cleared using the program Ccleaner. Almost like the error was stopping access? Not sure. Knock on wood, but I feel like my system has been working better overall since that fix when it comes to performance. Perhaps a combination of a few things. Only time will.

Thanks so much for your help!
