        Can you tell us the problem you are trying to fix? Without knowing
        what the problem is, no one can give you an answer.

      Windows update :-)

      I had a similar problem with Windows Update… it would not update.
      I found a simple solution, delete the SoftwareDistribution sub-directory within your windows directory. The caveat is you’ll lose your update history… oh well??

      When you retry Windows Update the system will re-create the missing directory and execute the update flawlessly.

      I’ve never got MS fix-it to recommend anything useful. But, I’ve only been repairing PCs for 25 years and have not encountered everything yet.
