Hello again. The fix failed and I still have the same error code 80071A91
Any idea when there will be an expert on line again ?
Do two things over all:
First: 1. Bring up an elevated command prompt 2. Execute the following commands sequentially:
a. fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\
b. cd /d %windir%\system32\config\txr
c. attrib -r -s -h *
d. del *
Second: Start an elevated cmd.exe Cd %windir%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine Attrib –a –h –s *.TM* Del *.TM*
NOW REBOOT! After reboot updates should install.
sorry I do not quite understand how to do this
Take the command prompt as told earlier
execute the commands below.
please let me know after, so that i can guide for the next step
what is an elvated cmd.exe
it is the command prompt
with admin rights
I have completed the first stage, can you guide me through the next step please
start again a command prompt, run as admin
type Cd %windir%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine Attrib –a –h –s *.TM* Del *.TM*
After completing this 3 steps
reboot and try installing updates again
updates were not installed properly ......again
Am out of ideas, am opting put so that other experts can help you on the same.
I've solved this problem by restarting the computer in safe mode and making a few changes: To start the computer in Safe Mode, press F8 repeatedly after restarting the computer. Choose Safe Mode as the Windows start option.
Then do the following:
1. Log on as an administrator.2. Click Start- type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe in the Programs list, click Run as administrator, and then click Continue. At the command prompt, type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.
cd /d %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machineattrib -s -h *del *.blfdel *.regtrans-msRestart the computer.
Post back here if this does not solve your problem.
I carried out the procedure and closed the pc down and then it kept re booting and switching on and off automatically. I eventually started of in repair mode. It will still not down load the upgrades
Please do the following in Safe Mode: Delete all the files/folders under \WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download and reboot. Let me know if you can rerun Windows Update.
Yes, press F8 during boot as previous to get into Safe Mode. Log in as an administrator. Then click on the Windows menu in the lower left, click on Computer. Then go to your C: drive and click on WINDOWS folder, then SoftwareDistribution folder, and finally on the Download folder and delete everything in that folder.
Reboot into normal windows and try to update your system again.
I am afraid it will not even start in safe mode without constantly rebooting so I am off to th PC shop for them to try.
Thanks for your help.
I wish you well. Have a great week!
