    Usually if resetting Windows Update doesn't help, a repair install may be in order.

    You will not lose anything doing a repair install though.

    Re: Reset_Reregiste_Windows_update*.bat


    Your par exellence batch runs very fast - is it possible to slow it down.
    Is it possible somehow to slow it down?
    During its run I noticed at least one entry "Access Denied" but it flashed away very quickly...
    Is this normal or it could be the reason why automatic update 1607 to 1709 failed at least a dozen of times?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello MIK, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It's normal to get a few errors for the in use items, but those don't affect the reset of Windows Update.

    If you like, you might see if the Windows 10 Update Assistant may be able to get you updated to the latest version of Windows 10. If that fails as well, then you may need to clean install to 1709.

    Yes, hi MIK, and welcome

    Shawn, would adding a /pause cmd or a send .txt to desktop cmd line to your batch file help or would that interfere with running the .bat?

    Sure you could add a "pause" command at the end of the .bat file to be able to scroll through it before continuing.

    The errors usually come when re-registering the .dll files for BITS and Windows Update. It's normal, and nothing to worry about though.

    1709 Repair Update Failure


    Unfortunately, this one failed too:
    0xC1900101 - 0x20017
    The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation.

    At least, it tells me not to bother trying to use the Safe Boot!!!

    What about resetting/updating the policies?

    Code:
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /f
    gpupdate /force

    This would be usefull for the script I think, because there are many tools out there which editing this reg path (O&O Shutup, w10privacy, spybot, tronscript...).

    Hello Eric,

    I added this section below to the .bat file in the tutorial to include resetting Windows Update policies to default.

    Code:
    :: Reset Windows Update policies
    reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate" /f
    gpupdate /force
