    windows 10 updates not running


    Can't get windows updates to go. when i run the trouble shooter for updates, get the following:


    An error occurred while troubleshooting:

    An unexpected error has occurred. The troubleshooting wizard can't continue.

    package id: WindowsUpdateDiagnostic

    Path: c:\WINDOWS\Diagnostics\Index|windowsUpdateDiagnostic.xml

    Error Code: 0x803C0103

    Source: Engine

    User: who ever is logged in!

    Context: Elevated


    i've done the sfc /scannow and it doesn't find any issues

    i've tried:

    net stop wuauserv

    net stop bits

    net stop cryptsvc

    ren C:WindowsSoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

    ren C:WindowsSystem32catroot2 Catroot2.old

    net start wuauserv

    net start bits

    net start cryptsvc

    Still get the same issue.


    Anyone have any other suggestions that won't remove current apps?

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    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
