    KB4025339 Fails Install 0x80070564

    Thanks
    I am trying Eagle 51's suggestions now. Windows Update troubleshooter found a bunch of errors and fixed all but one.The update is trying to download KB4025339 again. I'll see what happens. At step one troubleshooter finishes with one error unresolved "Potential Windows Update Database Error Detected-Not Fixed". Windows update stalled at 0%.

    At step 2 same troubleshooter error. The KB finished a new download failed to install.
    Did step 3 KB has downloaded but fails to install.

    If Eagle's suggestion doesn't work I'll try EdTittel's suggestion

    Tried bothe Eagle & Ed 's suggestions - do not work. Anyone else?

    I have noticed that the latest update for my nvidia drivers has failed to update. Wondering about that!

    Error: Couldn't download - virus scan failed message when trying to download a program

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you receive an error, 'Couldn't download - virus scan failed message' when trying to download a program. I'll certainly assist you with this.



    However, please let us know:



    • May I know the program that you are trying to download?
    • Which browser are you using?
    • Are you able to download any other programs?


    I would suggest you to try using a different browser like Microsoft Edge and see if that helps.



    If you are receiving this error while using Google Chrome, I would suggest you to refer the section
    "Virus scan failed" or "Virus detected" in the article Fix file download errors
    and see if that helps.



    Note: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.




    Refer the article How to back up and restore the registry in Windows



    I would also recommend you to create a system restore point.



    Let us know the results, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
