Windows 8.1 update error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dears,

    i have windows 8.1 installed (fresh install) i noticed that windows update stuck at checking for updates forever,

    the progress bar moves but no response at all, i tried to delete "SoftwareDistribution" and restart then run update again but still no update.

    i also cant change profile pic or lock screen pic, it stuck at loading the new pic (size: 300kb) i chosen.

    kindly if any one familiar with that issue reply with the details,

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    First,I need to confirm if your system was activated.

    Meanwhile,let us change a picture to test it.

    I suggest you upload the Windowsupdate.log so that we can help you analyze the issue.

    By default, the Windows Update client records all transaction   information to the following log file:

    %windir%\Windowsupdate.log

    Meanwhile,please check the following services to ensure they are in a start state.

    Windows Module installer service

    Cryptographic Services

    Windows update services

    Background intelligent transfer service

  • tried that tons of times, tried tons of Microsoft technet solution, none workrd for me (or worked for any one else as i saw from tons of threads).

    i just reinstalled windows.

    Tip for end users who face that problem : dont bother with those solutions, just reinstall windows, its the only way to solve that issue and microsoft developers already knows that. but the dont say so cuz they dont wanna make you think they are LOOSERS.

    and btw. now i know why most of people uses cracked version. because Microsoft OS's doesn't worth a penny

    i hope Microsoft do a lil harder work to solve this issue or tons of bugs in their products
