Windows 7 Fails to Update

#1
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.
