    Windows Update Err. 800706BE 800706BA tried many things


    Hi,

    Today there a few updates, more than usual. They fail with Errors 800706BE 800706BA

    Looking at this formu(s) found a recent thread and did everythng in that tread, but still, my system is not updating.
    Code 800706BA

    --> sfc /scannow - no errors


    --> Dism /Online/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth - no change in behaviour

    Avira Anti Virus - clean
    MalwareBytes - clean

    Suspicions:
    1. Got tricked into the Microsoft Account when testing skype - reverted back by 'removing' the Microsoft Account login
    2. Excessive sun radiation activity (really?)

    Thanks !!!!

    Hi and Thank you !

    Your Instructions cleared all the errors, but I noticed today that Windows THINKS that I have no internet, when I do.

    On the Network and Sharing Center I get : Not connected. "the dependency service or group failed to start

    Windows Update Seems to be stuck downloading Updates....

    I tried:
    netsh winsock reset catalog
    netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Restarted, and still the same...

    Weird?

    I think the fixes did the Internet issue, as before, the Updates were downloading fine.

    I suspectDism /Online/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth - screwed the internet connection. It works bot it shows as broken.

    After trying EVERYTHING possible found out:

    1. Problem due to the fact that I accidentally attached my user to Microsoft Account ! me@hotmail.com
    2. Upon realizing a couple of days later, I disconnected my user from me@hotmail.com
    3. Problem IS a result of this activity
    4. None of the account fix tools worked
    5. It was no longer possible to re-attach the account or detach.
    6. Many services were no longer starting due to wrong permissions

    FIX:
    Restore partition from the day just BEFORE having attached account to me@hotmail.com

    RESULT:
    Back to normal
