  • Hi Mrs.Naylor,


    I would like to confirm the following questions:


    1.    This issue occurred when downloading or installing software?

    2.    Did this issue occur on all the programs or only one program?

    3.    If this issue only occurred on one program, what’s the name of the problematic program?


    I would like to suggest you manually perform the troubleshooting steps mentioned by the following Microsoft Knowledge Base Article:



    Does it work?

  • I tried all the steps provided on that page. Nothing seems to work. I cannot install java updates, I can't install msn messenger updates. What happened? Was there an update pushed to Windows 7? Really this is a huge issue. I going to have a very expensive paper weight pretty soon if I can't update my software. Please help.

  • Hi,


    I realize that you cannot update Java and Windows Live Messenger.


    I would like to suggest you run System File Checker to scan the system first.


    If it does not work, would you please try to uninstall Java and Windows Live Messenger, and then install the latest version of Java and Window Live Messenger in Clean Boot directly.


    Does it work?
