Hi all. Hope someone can help me with this error message.
my laptop recently got affected by some trojan and I have removed it with a
3.Live One Care
These Programs comes together with the laptop. I never had to do all the
full scan but windows explorer couldn't act properly (windows explorer had to
shut down whenever I open My Computer directory).
After removal, everything is solved and all programs are working. however,
Windows Update couldnt start because of this error code 80070422.
My Laptop details: Windows Vista Entreprise, Service pack 1, Processor: AMD
Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor TK-53 1.7 GHz, RAM: 2GB, System Type:
32-bit Operating System.
these are the solutions i have tried:
Running Full scan again. No viruses/malware/trojan or whatever thingy was
found. Windows is back to normal. After re-boot, windows update works again,
but only for a while, after that security center alert me that windows update
is turned off. (No windows update = no update for defender OMG ><).
Check if BITS is enabled. using command prompt. yes it is.
- Check if Windows Module Installer is on Manual (yes it is)
- Windows Module Installer is running.
- Windows Update (Using Adminstartive Tools > Services > windows Update
(properties). I realised that it is Disabled so i click on Automatic, and it
switch back to Disabled again. I have done this repeatedly and when the
status is on Automatic (which it should be), Its service status wrote :
Stopped. ok. I click on start, a pop up shows up : "Error 1058: The Service
cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled
devices associated with it."
- There were several successful attempts and windows manage to get the
lastest update. However, the windows update service fails most of the times.
Its basically all the Trustable solution here I can find on the web. There a
few websites asking me to dowload this anti-malware or that anti-whatever or
whatever... I don't think I should really trust those things...
I hope someone with technical experience can help me out with this. Thank
you so much!
Thank you Thank you!!
