Windows Update check gives me Error Code C0000022


  • When I try to check for any updates to W7B, it gives me the error Code C0000022, and I cannot check for udpates!

     I have previously updated Windows, but it seems to be having problems with KB961367

     Any ideas why this is failing?

  • Hi Frankie

    I would recommend that you manually install that update. Click the following link to see the article for this update.

    An update is available for Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player in Windows 7 Beta

    Scroll down to the section that has the links to download the file. Download the file to the Desktop, double click the file to install.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Ronnie


    Thanks for the response, when I try to install it manually it does not install successfully, and still gives an error!


    Also when I try to check for any updates I get the same error! ;-(

  • It might be from one of these updates if you have them:

    OFFICE 2007 (SP1)

    But that's for windows update. Had the same problem in vista with updates and W7B

  • I have same problem with W7 64 bit.

    After system reinstall update KB974431 did not want to install.

    (AutomaticUpdates    Failure    Content Install    Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0xc0000022: Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB974431).)

    So I  deleted SoftwareDistribution folder. After that the error 0000022 instantly uccurs.

    I have none of above mentioned updates installed.
