Windows Updates Will Not Run RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I don't know if anyone can help me or even if I'm in the right place but I cannot get windows Updates to run at all.  They just stopped working for me a while back and I'm on the verge of just resetting the OS back to default.  I don't really want to do that if I can help it.

    I've tried the Fixit options, in both normal and aggressive mode.  I've tried manually resetting everything through the command prompt.  I've no malware on my machine, I'm running Malwarebytes and MS Security Essentials and I've periodically scanned it with other tools.

    Please can anyone help?

    Many thanks


    Edit:  "Windows Could not search for new updates" and Error code 80070490 "Update encountered an unknown problem"  If that's useful to you.
