    Smile Windows 7 x64 PC Updates FAIL. Tried all. New ideas pls

    Been about a week. Cannot get updates to not fail. the failed list for my pc somehow include x86 updates (2 ea); already installed updates (2 ea); and not applicable updates (3 ea). Makes me dismayed but highly suspicious of $M.

    Any Ideas guys?

    Ran the Win troubleshooter and fixit type programs offered to no avail plus many I found in forums and the like.

    Thanks Much, Jim

    I see you have tried it all.

    Nevertheless visit Windows Update fail to install or will not download in Windows 10/8/7 and try the 11, 12, 13, 14th suggestions and see.

    All the best!

    Default those did not work but maybe it just this

    Those procedure did not change the updates problem, but I noticed it was the same thing on both my PC's (PC1 & PC2). Kinda looks like maybe all the update are done and window is still trying to update with those wrong updates, and that. This possible?

    What about to uninstall some updates and then start the update to see if it works.

    Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter and see.

    Else try clearing out the SoftwareDistribution folder and the Catroot2 folder and then trying again.

    OK, just left Win7 updates alone on each PC. Low and behold on PC2 windows updates 3 kb's. Yeah! But not on PC1. Cleared out both the foldes you wanted me to do on just PC1. Gonna wait and see I guess unless you think otherwise. Jim
