Windows 7: Windows cannot search for new updates Error Code: 8007370B

17 Sep 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) Service Pack 1
Windows cannot search for new updates Error Code: 8007370B


I'm having issues when trying to search for updates on my laptop.
I have successfully ran SURT. SFC Scan gave me a message saying "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation".

The message I'm getting is "Windows Could not search for new updates" error code: 8007370B.

Attached to this post is a screenshot of the error i'm getting from Windows Update. The CSB folder from C:\Windows\Logs>> is to big for me to send via this method (0.2GB). If needed, I can send you this file using another method.

In advanced, I appreciate you help and I hope we can resolve this problem.

Jose C.

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
