OK - let's see if the other fix I know of has any effect...

Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt


once complete, leave the system alone for at least an hour to rebuild the database, then reboot, and run another MGADiag report and post the results.

Note that this may delete your Update History - but all updates will remain installed, and can be viewed in the Installed Updates listing.

Sorry - didn't mean to ask for an MGADiag - it was just a hangover from one of my standard scripts!
(you'll be happy to know that your report was fine though )

I was pretty certain that that would be the case - let's check something though...

Open an ELevated Command Prompt, and run the following command.

DIR C:\Windows\System32\Catroot2

post the results.

Here are some instructions to make life easier
1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

That looks normal enough - so let's have a look at the event logs and see if they give us a clue...

Open Event Viewer
click on the Windows logs entry in the left pane to expand it.
Now click on the Application entry - wait while it loads.
Click on 'File' in the menu bar and select Save...
Save the file as Appevt.evtx
Repeat for the System log
then zip both, and upload them.

Hi Noel,

Sorry for the delay getting back to you.

I have run windows update again a couple of times this morning, I'm still getting the same error code.

I have attached the Event Viewer logs as requested. I picked out the logs relating to this mornings update attempts to make life a little easier for you, however, if you do require the full logs I can of course post these for you also.

I really need all of the log data I asked for - there's a lot of stuff that goes on in the background that may give me a clue.

There's only one error there that relates to each update - 8024000e - which we already know about. It's what's happening at boot that I'm more interested in.
