Error 0x80070057 - Updates failing

    The C: drive has 69.6 gb free.

    As I commented in first post, a sfc /scannow had failed at 49%. But I just went into the drive's Tools/Scan and it was fine.

    I use Windows Defender, so only based on that do I think it is virus free. I'm running Trend Micro's Housecall on it now.

    IN the meantime, I did restart the setup, and told it to install updates per your suggestion, and it appears to have finished. It's at the prompt to close everything, and proceed. But I'm going to let Housecall finish before I do that.

    Quite sufficient, so not sure why you got that error, unless there is a problem with your drive.

    So chkdsk scan said everything was fine?
    What about Crystal Disk Info?

    But, I did not ask you to run that, I asked you to run ADWCleaner.

    Sorry. I think I missed that post. So here's were I'm at.
    Windows Setup

    By the time I realized I missed the ADW instruction I had started the setup process. It went like this on the second pass per my last update on this}:

    • I selected to do the Updates. Got no errors
    • Continued through, and left it to do it's reboots and install
    • When I came back it had an error at 92%
      A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close and notify yuo if a solution is available
    • When I closed the message, it did not reboot. It was in windows, what seemed to apparently be like it was when I started setup. Same patches were not installed
    • I tried again to install the patches, and they failed again

    Crystal Disk Info
    It's OK on the C: Drive. One of the drives in the Storage Space is under caution. Images below:

    ADW Cleaner

    It ran through, and came up with a message about a chrome extension that is deprecated. That has been cleaned up and all appears well.

    Next Steps

    I think I'll await your feedback at this point. Just to recap, my impression, based on the above info,:

    1.) is that all integrity tests are good (albeit a Caution on one of the drives on the D: Storage Space...which I wouldn't think would affect any of this).
    2. The run of the setup from the Windows ISO failed, and left me as I was at start. No information on why it failed
    3. The integrity checks being good indicates that nothing was fixed that should be of consequence.
    4. I need to start the setup again and see what happens

    Thank you.
    Questions: What is on Disk 3 (the one that has the reallocated sector count warning)? In other words, is that the drive with all your data? Have you moved your user libraries there, or to another disk?

    The reason I'm asking is, I think we need to disconnect all non-essential drives, and any additional monitors, usb devices, etc.

    I'd also like to see your disk layout. Can you post a screen shot of Disk Management please?

    Disk 3 is one of 4 disks that makes up the Storage Management setup. Then there is C: which is of course the boot disk.

    An interesting note: Drive 3 with the warning has 99 reallocated sectors, with a threshold of 36. Drives 0,1,and 2 have 200 reallocated sectors with a threshold of 140, and no caution warning. Seems inconsistent, and makes me think that rather than a warning to consider, the threshold should be changed. (I really have no idea when reallocated sectors would be considered an issue.

    Another note Keep this in mind: Not sure now if I mentioned this earlier, but the whole thing that actually started me down this path was that my Macrium Backups fail when backing up to the storage space, which then led me to discover the failing updates.

    This 'server' is really pretty basic. I don't have any USB stuff on it, in fact the mouse and keyboard typically are not even attached, nor a monitor. I'm just using it to do backups to from my laptop and desktop.
    Another Note: I probably should mention that it is pretty old hardware:

    I did another search on 0x80070057, and found this article.

    I thought maybe selection '2. Windows Update error 0x80070057 'should be tried. But I can't rename the directory as it is held open by svchost.exe, and I'm thinking it not a good idea to shut down that service.

    Now getting 0x800736cc


    Well, I decided to run the setup again but without selecting install updates.

    It successfully finished this time. So I went into Windows Update and started the update process. All updates worked and installed except for (KB4088776), which got the 0x800736cc error. Like the one on the topic of thsi thread, indication is there are corrupt system files, even though I just did the refresh.

    My friend tells me to just get a Mac.

    I am going to follow suggestions in this post.

    Turning into a marathon...


    Got through step 3 at this page. Came up with this result from the sfc /scannow

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannowBeginning system scan. This process will take some time.Beginning verification phase of system scan.Verification 100% complete.Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix someof them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Forexample C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently notsupported in offline servicing scenarios.
    The log was quite long, and didn't provide information that I knew what to do with.

    Now moving on to step 4 and try it in safe mode.

    Hi.
    I'm sorry, but today is a really bad day for me, and I won't be around much.
    You could try the DISM commands (at an admin command prompt):

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /checkhealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /scanhealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /restorehealth

    and then, again

    sfc /scannow

    If you get errors running any of them, because the files could not be found, then mount your ISO, and point to it - follow the instructions in this tut:

    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image Windows 10 Tutorials

    You could also try downloading KB4088776 from the Windows Update Catalogue and installing it that way.
    Microsoft Update Catalog

    I'm not familiar with Windows Storage Spaces (don't use it), and so I'd have to do a little reading up on that to see if it might be causing part of the problem or not. Unfortunately, don't have time atm.

    Oh, and yes, Macrium will fail the moment your drives become a problem. Every drive is different. If you want, download DiskCheckup from PassMark and run it for a while (an hour or two - it has to evaluate the drive changes, before it gives you an accurate expected failure date).
