Windows 7: windows 7 64bit problems with windows update

windows 7 64bit problems with windows update

One of my clients is having a issue with a windows 7 machine, I have tried multiple things that I could think of on the remote side.

I have tried using the fix bat to re-initiate the windows update services but it gives an error message.

I also have tried to do a FSS report and all it does is close (and delete itself)...

I've done a malwarebytes scan, it found minor items and deleted those.

Also, IE and Chrome are both giving the famous Virus Scan Failed on every downloaded file, which was why they called me in to repair the problem but this is a little bit strange to say the least. I tried editing the registry to get that fixed but the registry policy dword addition didn't fix that. What should I be doing when I go into the pc on-site tomorrow?

I used RKill on it and here's what it did.

Two more things..

I seem to be missing the Wuaueng.dll file completely...
The windows update service isn't in the service console either.

C:\Windows\System32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 53% complete.

Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

have you seen this
Webroot antivirus goes bananas, starts trashing Windows system files € The Register
did the problem start then? if so rollback to earlier date

Have a look at the Webroot ARCHIVE log.
Reset its Firewall to default

Re Farbar (FRST) id drop it to a usb and run it on site.
Although it opened/closed check C >programfiles> FRST > logs

With BITS stopped Updates will NOT run, and missing Wuaueng obviously is a problem.
from a run command re-register WU....
regsvr32.exe Wuaueng.dll

Looking at the other thread, you've installed FF as a workaround seems to imply this was a one time hit not an ongoing virus problem, back to my link above.

Have you dissabled webroot and tried a failed download with IE/google
