Problems with Windows Update

  1. #11


    I had same issue and found it was a specific group of Windows Updates which corrupted my System files. DISM and SFC would not work properly restored my system to a point before those particular Updates. Then I just hid those updates - all were "Optional" See thread

    Windows 8.1 will be getting nearly 30 patches later today
    (Post #48)

    These "Optional" Updates are not always applicable to a specific pc - as I found out the hard way.

    NB: the spaces...
    Just curious, but would this command work if I mounted a W 8.1 system image and substituted the assigned drive letter in place of "X"?

    I think it has been well established that it was Update KB3022345 that caused problems with SFC and crashed the DISM tools.

    I originally installed KB3022345 when it was an optional update and it caused SFC/DISM problems on both my PC's. It crashed the DISM repair on both. When removed all was well again. A patched version was put out as a recommended update days later which I installed but still caused a file corruption but nothing the DISM tools couldn't fix. If you are still having trouble with SFC file corruptions I would recommend uninstalling KB3022345, for now at least.

    Thanks for this.
    I have been getting an error with sfc /scannow and uninstalling KB3022345 did the trick

    Currently KB3022345 is uninstalled on both my PC's. I have tried reinstalling on both systems and every time it results in some SFC file corruptions. DISM tools fixes it every time and sometimes I will get a clean SFC scan and sometimes not. With it uninstalled the SFC scan comes back clean every time so KB3022345 is on the back burner for at least several days just to confirm my findings.

    Interesting though, I first installed this update in a batch of optional updates around 4/21. After I uninstalled it, it came back as an important update and after uninstalling it again it has reappeared as an optional update again. Which is it MS?
    Optional, Recommended, Important????

    This behavior is happening on 2 totally different PC's

As the title says upon checking for Updates I am getting Codes 801901F7 or 80072EE2 or 80072EFD which I believe is a problem with connecting with the MS server. Have ran the Troubleshooters, Reset, cleared the Cache, SFC and DISM, all reporting no problems. No connection problems either.
