    Unable to update or reinstall Windows 10.


    Hi Team,


    My PC has been rather slow these days and I have tried updating and reinstalling Windows 1809 multiple times to no avail.

    1. I get an error 0x8007001f using the standard update functionality under settings.
    2. I tried to do a fresh install multiple times but I keep encountering an error during the installation (there is no specific error description or code)
    3. I tried using the Media Creation Tool with a large USB drive (much more than 8GB), but I keep getting an insufficient space error even though I have 10GB+ available on my C hard drive. Unfortunately, I cannot free any additional space as my hardrive is 30GB and Windows is already occupying ~20 GB.

    I have not encountered this issue with previous Windows 10 upgrades.


    I have tried all the steps described here https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/10587/windows-10-get-help-with-upgrade-installation-errors also without results. I do not have 20 GB of available space on my C drive (as mentioned, my C drive is 30GB and windows is already occupying ~20 GB), but I do have a large SD card and a USB drive.


    Can you, please advise? Is there anything I can do?

    All of my applications and files are backed up.


    Thank you.

    :)

    [Solved] Windows 10 keeps reinstalling KB3119142

    I noticed quite some time ago that KB3119142 (Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package) kept reinstalling itself for some reason. At least once daily. Sometimes up to several times a day. I just ignored it. It didn't seem to be doing any harm. And I figured they'd eventually fix it. Well...days turned into weeks, weeks into months, with no end to the problem in sight. It dragged on unsolved for at least the last few months. Literally reinstalling itself hundreds of(at least a hundred, felt like more) times in that period of time.

    So I finally googled it a couple days ago. And just got around to fixing it today. Which appears to have worked. And it couldn't have been easier to do. I feel so stupid to have let it intimidate me for so long.*Oops! Unable to update or reinstall Windows 10. :oops:
    Below are links to the thread that I got the fix idea from, and the official MS support info page for KB3119142(from which I quoted the above).

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Unable to update or reinstall Windows 10. :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
