I use Win7 Ultimate 64-bit on a Thinkpad t440p. This morning Windows Update prompted me to install KB4054852 and KB4054981. So I did, after restarting I checked Windows Update and found that it was throwing error 8024000E saying it can't get updates now. I tried the steps listed here:
But I was not able to complete all of the re-registers list in step 6 because most failed. However I completed the instructions and restarted.
The error went away and I was prompted to install 5 very old updates. I installed them assuming that I'd need to reinstall all of them but windows seemed satisfied after those. After about 30 minutes of normal use my machine crashed with BSoD listing
BAD_POOL_HEADER as the cause. IDK if that is connected but after windows finally rebooted windows update now states it can't search for new updates code
Does anyone have a solution for this that they have tried and actually works?
These where the only things I was able to re-register from step 6 in the link above:
- regsvr32.exe atl.dll
- regsvr32.exe urlmon.dll
After attempting the steps listed in the link above and restarted my machine my Windows Update history was totally blank that's when I was prompted to install updates the older updates. I don't know which updates they were because when I check my update history now It says that I'm current. Check this screen-cap for the latest listed;
