    Windows Update and Windows Store not able to update/download


    I'm at a complete loss with this one. My system randomly stopped being able to access Windows Update, or download/update ANY apps from the Windows store whatsoever. I've also lost the ability to play Forza Horizon 4 as a result. If I try to manually check for updates, I get an error message that says "We couldn't connect to the update service", no matter how many times I try. I waited a day and tried again, same thing. I can't find ANYONE else reporting anything like this.

    To make matters worse, I just did a fresh, clean install of 1809 with a build date of January 2019, from Microsoft's site and using their tool. It's still happening. And now SmartScreen doesn't work either, it complains about not being able to connect. What makes this so bizarre is that my internet is working perfectly with regards to every non Microsoft site and service. My date and time is set properly and has been triple checked, and it's correct in the BIOS as well. I did see a code related to incorrect system time the last time one of the app downloads timed out, which makes no sense given that it IS correct. Please help.

    :)

    Windows Update suddenly hangs?

    Windows Update is suddenly hanging for some reason... I went and downloaded and installed the first bunch of updates, restarted when asked, and now when I go back to windows update I just get the window with a white box forever. Reboot and it still does it. This happens to be on my main machine, running windows 7.

    I've also noticed when I reboot it says configuring windows update, step 3 of 3, 47%. Maybe it somehow skipped something and is screwed forever?

  4. Windows Update and Windows Store not able to update/download

    Windows updates...

    Oh. Your "Registry" must have gotten screwed up FLY3R. If for some reason you couldn't download your updates I suppose you could go to the update site, and run throught the steps 'till it fails activation. Then you could go up to "Tools > Manage Add ons > then disable "Windows Genuine Advatage Validation Tool." Of course you should only use this method if you are having problems updating your legitamate copy of Windows XP. Perhaps do to a corrupted piece of software? *Smile Windows Update and Windows Store not able to update/download :)
