I cannot update my Windows, All windows web pages say they cannot be displayed. Other programs like anti-virus and spyware cannot connect to servers to update. i checked my winlog file and one of the lines said :Fatal Error- Failed to load Wuaueng-0x8007045a. I tried registering some of the dll files and that did not work. I have nothing blocking the windows website, Please help, Thanks

Run malware scan

If you have access to another computer, download Malwarebytes from, and then download their most recent update and save both to disk. Run that disk in the problem computer and install the program, then the definitions update and run the scan. I've had viruses/malware disable windows updates and prevent security software from running properly also and this has worked. The key is not depending on the internet connection to get the most recent updates, hence downloading to disk from uninfected computer.

windows update blocked

Your pc might be infected with the silent win32/conficker virus. Webroot Security immediately got rid of it. I tried malwarebytes, and other methods of trying to fix this problem & nothing. Just google webroot & download the trial. It's worth subscribing to.
