    Windows Update components must be repaired.

    For about a month now I have been getting extremely slow internet and task manager says that "Windows Update" is using all of it. I ran the windows update troubleshooter and it came up with "Windows Update components must be repaired. Fixed." This fixes it for about half an hour and then I have to run the troubleshooter again and every time I do it says the same thing. I have tried googleing for answers and have tried a few things but so far nothing has worked.

    Since this morning I have also been getting "Potential Windows Update Database error detected 0x80070490. Fixed" but it still comes up every time I run the troubleshooter.
