[Solved] Cannot install updates nor IE10 Hi all, Windows 7 version: 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 x64 Computer Model: Dell XPS 8300 (PSU upgraded to 750W) Motherboard: Stock Dell RAM: 16GB Hard Drive: 1TB + 1.5TB both Seagate (ST31000528AS, ST31500341AS) Graphics Card: NVidia GTX 470 Firewall: Windows Firewall Antivirus: Avast Free The problem: I cannot install some Windows updates. I haven't narrowed it down to the specific updates, but I have 110 updates to install according to Windows Update (because I recently had to do a repair install from my Windows 7 x64 SP1 disc, so I'm roughly at the state right after SP1 came out). I also cannot install IE10. It may be a related issue or a different issue, I don't know. For the updates, what happens is this:I install them from Windows Update.It says I need to reboot my computer, which I let it do.Before rebooting, it shows the "configuring updates" screen until it's at 30%, then reboots.Then after having rebooted, it shows again "configuring updates" until a high percentage, normally 90% or more.Then it says "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes." for a while.It then reboots again and when I log into Windows it shows a screen saying Windows Update failed to install some updates. What I have tried: Malware scans with MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpywareVirus scan with AvastI have run sfc /scannow from an elevated prompt, which said no "integrity violations" were foundI ran the "System Update Readiness" tool (freshly downloaded, so the latest version), which did not find any problems.The Windows Update troubleshooter says the following after running:Windows Update error 0x80070057 (2013-07-14-T-09-48-26A) Not fixedProblems installing recent updates Not fixedCheck for missing or corrupt files DetectedSome security settings are missing or have been changed FixedService registration is missing or corrupt FixedProblems installing recent updates FixedBut even after running that troubleshooter, and then rebooting, the updates won't install. I could try to install updates one by one to try and find the one that fails, but I had started to do that recently and it ended up failing even worse. After installing a few of the updates, the machine would not boot up again after the "reverting changes" message, and I had to boot with my Windows DVD and do a system restore from the recovery tools. So I'm not very keen to start doing that again. I wonder if there's something in the logs that would help some knowledgeable person tell me what is wrong. I'm ready to post any logs necessary to find and possibly fix the problem. When I try to install IE10 from the Windows Update page, it just says installation failed with error 9C59. I have googled that error and tried various things (including manually installing each of the required updates), nothing helped. I also tried installing it with the standalone installer. It says "checking for required updates", then "installing" and then "installation did not complete sucessfully" with a link to the same troubleshooting article on MS's site. I have already tried everything that article suggests. I would appreciate any and all suggestions for finding a solution to this problem. I know from reading other posts that there are some very knowledgeable people on this site, and I've tried everything I could find, so I'm open to anything else that could help. Thanks in advance!
