    Can't update Windows 10 Anniversary


    I recently encountered a virus right around the time Windows 10 was updated to Windows 10 Anniversary. I had originally upgraded my Windows 8.0 to Windows 10 (beta), but my Activation code didn't work so I had to get windows to help me, and that's when Windows 10 Anniversary was installed. Before that my computer ran beautifully. All my programs worked with no issues, never issues installing stuff. Now, I have non-stop issues. I went to check for updates and realized that there hadn't been any updates done to date so I tried. this is the error message that persists.


    There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x80240442)


    I have been trying different things for about a week now with no success. I followed countless "outdated" tutorials on what to do but nothing works. Tonight I finally found something recent, I thought it was on this forum but I can't find it again, but I will send a screenshot of the "ADMIN Powershell" commands I sent;

    The Echo off at the bottom wasn't there before, I tried to repost it a 2nd time and it still didn't work. I think it actually changed the error code to
    0x8024401c

    But when I tried the fix for that, it went back to the first error. I have a feeling that this error is also blocking me from installing Microsoft Office. I'm hoping once I can update my PC correctly, whatevers causing this problem will also fix that one. Any help I can get here would be very very appreciated. So far, 0 updates. Thanks!

    OK. I tried that. I don't get an option to download the ISO. These are all the applicable screenshots;

    I ran WINVER to check, because it instantly showed that last message. Obviously, it never updated.

    That link at post 2 doesn't give you right link for the ISO. See this tutorial https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/9...-download.html The ISO download link is https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft.../windows10ISO/

    I don't know which English version you need in Canada. I do know for the UK I have to choose English International. You might even need a French version?

    Thanks Steve, I'm downloading it now. For some reason I have to keep switching between Edge and Firefox to get these DL links to open, but at least its working so far. I assume this ISO is the most current updated version of Windows 10 Build 1607, and if so I'm pretty confident this will work. Hopefully it fixes some of these issues I've been having. Later Steve. I'll keep you posted either way. Thanks again!

    Hey,

    I just finally managed to get the anniversary update done. Tried all I could, even running from DVD and it'd never work.

    Then I physically ripped out all drives except C and while at it also in-installed ALL motherboard (ASUS) drivers and Chrome which has been crashing regularly...and lo and behold it FINALLY went thru!

    You can use MiniTool Partition Wizard to check if you have any active partitions on your other drives since that can confuse the Windows installer and boot process. If so, set them inactive unless you have fancy dual boot system and need an active partition on anything other than your system drive for some reason.

    OK. I tried this and it just keeps resetting itself. As soon as it comes down to updating, its flashes the following message then resets instantly;

    RESTARTING WINDOWS 10 SETUP
    The updates are installed, but Windows 10 Setup needs to restart for them to work. After it restarts, we'll keep going from where we left off.

    I tried it 5x. It just doesn't want to update. Period!

    Before I ever saw this message, I will acknowledge that I did have another active drive installed at the time of initial install, but it has been removed for a week now and i'm still getting blocked. Thanks for the reply though!
