Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I can help you with your Windows Update issue.

I'm very familiar with that issue as I had it myself a few months back...the following steps although a bit overwhelming, they indeed fixed the issue. Keep in mind that through my Additional Service Fee I could offer you Remote Services to do this for you quickly and effectively. Let me know if interested.

Here are the Step:

1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.

2. If you receive a notification from User Account Control simply click Continue.

3. At the command prompt, type the following, commands and then press ENTER after each command.

net stop bits

net stop cryptsvc

4. Please do not close the Command Prompt window.

1. At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press Enter after each command:

2. ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 Catroot2.old

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
