    Windows 10 Update Error 0x80240439


    I am currently on Windows 10 Build 1703 Version 15063.0 following an in-place upgrade. Every time I try to Check for Updates on Windows 10, I get the error 0x80240439. I have spoken to 5 of the Microsoft team now, and I've done two repair installs, one clean install, and two in-place upgrades. Every time, the issue has persisted. At one point, it let me update, but after a restart and another "Check for Updates" the error started again. I have tried manually installing the windows updates, but an unexpected error doesn't allow me to. I've done sfc /scannow numberous times, reset the Windows Update Components several times and started services via an elevated command prompt until it has driven me insane. The last member of the Microsoft team I spoke to suggested I buy the Assure Plan for £95 to get a higher technician on the case, which I am not doing. Can someone please give me any advice on how to proceed? I have exhausted my options.Original post here: Windows Update Error 0x80240439 - Windows 10 Forums

    Hi llluminati lzzy.

    Using DISM in this thread seemed to help a number of people.

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...3-404b346b5509

    That said given all the installs, repairs, upgrades I myself would start with a clean install. I would first run a chkdsk against my storage and I would even run memory diagnostics.

    Then when I performed the clean install I would delete all partitions from the drive and let Windows create the partitions it needs. Of course you need to get your data off the device. I would also do the install without looking for updates. If you have a lot of storage devices attached just do the installs and subsequent updates with just your "System" drive connected.

    My opinion, others will have a different approach.

    Thanks for offering your help. I've executed chkdsk /r in an elevated command prompt and I entered "Y" to confirm a chkdsk on reboot. However, upon reboot, the PC boots as normal, and chkdsk does not start. I've checked the "BootExecute" registry path, and the it reads "autocheck autochk /r \??\C:" "autocheck autochk *" (no quotations). I've opened a command prompt in safe mode and tried to run chkdsk /r with a reboot, but it, again, boots as normal. I used the Recovery Command Prompt to run chkdsk C: /r, but I had to change the drive to D: (chkdsk D: /r) for it to scan my storage drive. This confuses me, none of my drives are labelled D:. The command runs straight from the Recovery Command Prompt, without a reboot, and chkdsk /r still won't work on reboot after executing it from an elevated command prompt straight afterwards. The events also aren't uploaded to the event viewer.

    I tried to run an extended memory diagnostic with mdsched.exe, but it froze at 21% and the whole PC became awfully slow/delayed. I've never ran a memory diagnostic before, so I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
    My last question, does it matter if I do a clean install from a USB or CD/DVD?

    Thank you

    Chkdsk has been fixed with the latest cum. update - which is not gonna help you much, I know - just FYI.

    You can run it from booting the windows media (USB or DVD) and selecting the repair link and cmd promt thereafter.

    When booting this way your drive letters may become skewed - use diskpart to check for correct one.

    Also note the switches: /R recovers info from sectors - to fix them in the first place, use /F

    In fact I always use both: chkdsk C: /f /r

    I did not look at all your previous posts in detail but I assume you have already tried to disable WU driver updates entirely; correct?

    I'm not sure if I've tried to disable WU driver updates... Could you please tell me how I go about that?

    Just ran chkdsk /f /r and it worked on reboot! The clean install must've done something magic
    ...Will take some time to finish the chkdsk though
