    Windows 8.1 update error code 0x80240031 at 50%


    Hi, can anyone here help me I am trying to download the windows 8.1 on a windows 8.0 Toshiba S855D-S5120Laptop. Laptop specs 2.3 APU A10 Quad Core, 700 Giga HDD, 8 Giga RAM, and graphic ATI 2 giga memory 1200 x 800 screen . The OS is the first edition of windows 8.0 and I had widows preview 8.1 on it downloaded from the windows store. When I download the windows 8.1 from the store, I get this error code 80240031 ( I looked up the error coded and it mean invalid file) at 50% file download. I have used the windows restore function to restore the laptop to windows 8.0 and still the windows update does not work. I have tried resetting setting to default factory settings and same thing happens with the download. I have also bought the window pro 8.1 pack and the same thing with the windows 8.1 it stops at 50% and same error code comes up. I have also done the WSReset.exe and no improvement. I have all of windows updates and still nothing I do is working. I have been working on this since Thursday. Please help me

    Hi I am sorry if I reply late but you have to either install all the windows updates+optional or hide the bing bar update by right clicking the bing bar and hide it and refresh then it will work. Same thing happened to me and I hide the bing bar update and I have windows 8.1 now because bing bar was my last update that I needed but did not want so I hide it.
