Error code FFFFFFE

    Question

  • I keep getting this error code every time I try to update. I have clicked the "get help with this code" and followed the advice. That advice was that it is malware. Ok, ran numerous full scans with 2 different malware/virus security programs and still getting the code. Is there something I am missing? I thought about doing a system restore but it doesn't seem to go back far enough (or I don't know how to get more than the most recents on the list). Thanks
