My windows 8.1 computer keeps trying to install 2 updates that continually fail.
The updates are KB4507448 and KB3184143
Error codes incude80240055, 800f0831, 80070002, 8000ffff

I ran sfc and git found corrupt...but unable to fix.
I ran dism commands but could not complete
I ran trouble shooter said it fixed 3 things:
Service registration missing or corrupt
windows update error 80070057
problem installing recent updates

I reset windows update components several components (mshtml.dll) was loaded but the entry point dll register server was not found

I have a win8.1 cd and started trying a repair install.

PaulB and Snick over in sevenforums have a collection of tools that should work for w8 -- there might have to be a little tweaking done on the tools for w8 or 8.1.

Just noticed OP post date...probably fixed by now.
