    Sorry..............but I have got something wrong...............

    I looked at the Update History and realized that the small update I said was successful was NOT

    I have downloaded the .bat file and run as administrator..........

    Cannot reset Windows Update since "Windows Update" (wuauserv) service failed to stop.

    Press any key to continue...........

    Then a few lines and whoof - it closes

    That's ok Bob.

    See if you may be able to manually stop the "Windows Update" service, and then try the .bat file again to reset. If needed, you may need to restart the computer and try again to stop the service.

    Manually stopped the wuauserv service OK

    Ran the .bat file as administrator

    4 services stopped

    successfully flushed the DNS Resolver cache

    deleted 2 .dat files
    could not find C:ProgramData/Microsoft/Network/Downloader/qmgr*.dat
    deleted 16 .et1 files

    it hung for a while and then

    2 access denieds

    and whoosh - gone

    will now try and upload again

    It sounds like the .bat file successfully ran to reset Windows Update. Be sure you restart the computer immediately afterwards though.

    have tried to manually stop auaserv service
    then ran the .bat file
    then apply the very first basic single update KB4077525

    but it always shows as 'failed to install'

    producing the report again - still shows unfixed error

    I was referring to the Potential Windows Update Database error detected not fixed at the beginning of the report

    If you like, you might see if a repair install may be able to fix Windows without having to do a Reset or Refresh.

    Afterwards, see what the troubleshooter reports. If all checks out, hopefully Windows Update will get you updated.

    Windows 10 installation failed....................

    Looking at update history - the two top entries are:-

    Update for Windows 10 version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB4033631)
    Failed to install on 03-Mar-18

    2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB4074590)
    Requires a restart to finish installing

    so, choose update and restart..................
    -> update history - both top two entries failed

    Update status
    There were problems...........................

    Feature update to windows 10, version 1709 - Error 0x80070003

    Some update files are missing or have problems..............

    Error code: (0x80070003)

    Update for windows 10 .................. with error code..................

    However, it started searching for updates and so I lost what I was reading

    p.s. my machine runs extremely slow

    Hmm, it sure is being stubborn.

    Just to verify when you were trying a clean install:

    1) Did you create a bootable USB using Option 1 below?

    2) When you booted from the USB at boot and "Windows Setup" started, did you wipe the hard drive to be an "unallocated" disc at step 12 (legacy BIOS) or step 13 (UEFI) below?
