    I've been trying to get Windows 7 to update, but I keep getting an 8007273D error. I tried the Windows Update Diagnostic but that fails as well. Help please?

    From another message board when posted this question:

    Problem is solved. Reformatted the drive and reinstalled Windows 7. Everything works fine now.

    Before you do that,,, lets try the following.....

    Start / Run
    type Services.msc
    hit enter
    stop Windows Update service
    If exists stop Automatic Update (if it doesn't then continue)

    Navigate to the following location...

    C:\Windows

    Delete Software Distribution folder

    Restart the Windows Update Service (and Automatic Updates if it exists)

    You might have to reboot,, maybe not,, but then try updating again.

    That's a good idea. A partial or corrupt downolad could easily cause confusion.
