Windows 7: Windows Update Issue stays at 0%

20 Dec 2015   #1

Windows 7 - 64 bit
Windows Update Issue stays at 0%

1. Win 7 64 Home - Wifie's box

System Components:

MSI Gaming 5
2 x 4Gb DDR3 2400-CAS10
Seagate 2 TB SSHD
nVidia GTS 250

2. System Scan results - WRP found corrupt files but was unable to fix all of them. CBS file attached.

3. Ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter.

First Run: Error 0x80070057
Second Run after sfc /scannow: Error 0x80070057 + Service Registration missing or corrupt.
Image attached

4. Ran System Readiness Tool and it said (oddly) that it wasn't for this computer. Rescanning now, will update when finishes

EDIT: Just finished rerunning the Update Troubleshooter. The service registration is missing or corrupt message is gone but the 80070057 is still there.
