    64-bit Windows 10


    You might see if using the standalone installer at the Microsoft link below for the KB2795944 may work for you to install it instead.
    If not, then you might see if using OPTION THREE to reset Windows Update may be able to help.
    Hope this helps,

    I don't know if this might help but in my similar case the problem was traced to an incompatible program (Nitro pro7) which came with the computer. Updating to Nitro pro 8 solved it, though I suppose I could have uninstalled it.

    Win 8

    FWIW.. I had this same problem when updating a new copy of Windows 8 on a new computer I just built. I contacted MS, and the problem was caused by the fact that I had not activated my product.

    Once I activated my copy of Win 8, the problem disappeared!

    Win 8

    I just solved my problem by running sfc/scannow which found errors but couldn't correct them. So I then used dsim /online/cleanup-image /restorehealth which corrected the file corruption and all updates completed. You have to reboot after dism completes. See my post.

    7 and 8

    I was wondering if anyone had any further suggestions for me on this problem. I'm unable to update to 8.1 because of this.
