Windows Update Error 80096001



    When I click on the "Check for Updates" button in Windows Update it gives me a message that "Windows could not check for updates" "Errors found: Code 80096001" I have been having this issue for a month or so. Also I am unable to restore to a previous restore point because it tells me it has to scan for registry errors but will not allow me to do that either. Any help is appreciated.
