    Hi mir,
    Thanks for your reply. That is what I'm going to do now, so I'll be very
    busy for the next few hours, or days, or months!

  2. When that happens your choices are: diagnose the problem symptom
    by looking in the logs (e.g. finding some context for the error codes)
    or downloading the same update and trying to install it manually.
    Doing the latter gives you the opportunity to invoke more diagnostics.
    It also means that any subsequent problem symptoms are independent
    of WU or AU and more related to your OS or the product being updated,
    in which case you may be more likely to find more informed help in forums
    (e.g. newsgroups) which specialize those ways.


    Well, as I mentioned in the post I pointed you to, you may need to
    supplement the logging with other traces (e.g. from ProcMon.)
    Sometimes even the so-called verbose logging doesn't capture
    the right clues that can lead to a complete understanding of the symptoms,
    which is usually necessary to devise a resolution to the problem(s) they
    are caused by.


    Without sufficient diagnostics all you can do is take "stab in the dark" guesses
    about what you might try doing differently. Reinstalling Windows is an extreme
    example of doing that. E.g. essentially it gives you a different starting point
    for the next time you try to install the problem update. If it turns out the real
    resolution to your problem symptom is procedural you may be doing all that
    work of trying a different starting point and still not be aware of what you need
    to do to get the update applied.


    Good luck

    Robert

    Hi, I looked at all the logs but nothing was showing up as to why there was
    an error,plus, you would think that when a Windows error number is given by
    Windows, there is a solution for it! To put in the error no on Windows
    "solution(?)!" pages, there would be something there to look up, but even
    their own error number comes up "no trace!" I also went to windows updates &
    tried to download manually, & the result was the same.

    Anyway, I will finish because I've downloaded them. I re-installed vista,
    so I'm having a great time putting everything back together again.

    Thanks for all your help.....

  5. Can anyone help me - I can run my computer and trouble shoot basic problems
    but do NOT understand code etc. I cannot install an update although the code
    is slightly different to the one this string refers to. The error code I am
    getting is:
    Update for Windows Vista (KB930857)

    Download size: 65 KB

    You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

    Update type: Important

    Install this update to fix an issue with Windows Error Reporting that may
    cause some information about application errors to be sent to Microsoft
    without notifying you. After you install this item, you may have to restart
    your computer.

    It says the update is important but hasn't been able to install it since
    18th November 2007. I have done everything suggested including he
    instructions given here for error 8007000B as it was the closest reference I
    could find - but it still won't install. Any ideas would be much
    appreciated!!

    Thanks,

    I regret that I am also experiencing the same problem with my Vista Ultimate
    since about the 9th January 2008. To date I have 51 failed updates and need
    to find a solution as a matter of urgency.

    I did try going to All Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt/Run as
    Administrator/Allow.....

    When the Command Prompt opened it was showing the following:

    C;/Windows/System32:

    I typed in the recommended string but it did not resolve the problem.

    I then assumed this was because I had not changed the directory to C: only
    which I then did and entered the string "fsutil resource setautoreset C:" as
    suggested.

    Rebooted the computer but the updates still refuse to update.

    I hope that I have not caused the problem by initially typing the string
    into the incorrect location and hope that you are able to assist me in
    resolving this problem.

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi there. If I'm running into the same problem on Windows XP, is there a
    similar command to help?

    The one you provided is not a valid option for fsutil on XP.

    Thanks...

    I keep having the same issues. I tried what you said in previous post but
    when i open the command post it does not give me an option to select run as
    administrator. It says c:\Users\Edie. so i went ahead and put the command in
    and it tells the the fsutil utility requires that you have administrative
    privileges.

    I am also unable to defrag my computer. Are the two related?

    I have the same problem with Vista Home Premium. I asked for help and wrote
    out the exact error message and code(s). This has been going on since last
    year...and once in a while some updates will install...eventually....but I
    still have 24 that absolutely will NOT install. I wrote to tech support, and
    received an answer that told me to turn off my firewall. Well, I have turned
    off both the Windows and my Virus Scan firewalls, yet was only able to
    install 5 successfully.

    I also get a smaller code...87F with this 8007000B code.

    Also, my automatic backup isn't working anymore either. I tried to backup
    to a disk, but none of them took...even tho a message said they took. I am
    about to take Vista out of my computer and put XP back in.
