    • Has this tool been changed? It used to open up a DOS window with different troubleshooting options.
    • Nevermind. Answered my own question. You have to run ResetWUEng.cmd file as an Administrator.
    • Can you help me? It says run as administrator, and I have all permissions and administrator status, but it still will not let me run the program?

    • I cannot upload windows updates.  The virtual agent sent instructions to scan and run ResetWUEng file.
      Scan completed successfully but when running reset tool, I received a warning message that Windows was not responsible for damage to my PC.
      Is this tool safe to run?

    • Had problems updating Win10.  As part of the "Get Help" from the Automated Agent, eventually I got to this from the Agent: 
      "Download the Windows Update Reset Tool
      Click here to download the Windows Update Reset Tool.
      After it downloads, open the .zip file, and run the ResetWUEng file."
      You recommended downloading the file wureset11008_setup_winx64.exe.  But that is not a zip file that the Agent said to download.  So which file should be downloaded?
    • Hi Ali,
      The executable version of this tool has some additional options that are not found in the script version.
      You can use the script version if you only want to reset the windows update components

    • Hey, Manuel,
      This follows on the answers at this thread:
      The issue is WU can't find IE11. Here's the log from the script:!Ak71HCtdvRa9grBdlKA4irOQ_HcIiA
      The question remain:
      IE11, where art thou?
      Thanks for reading!
    • Hi LaurieSt,
      I'm sorry for being late.
      I have been reviewing your case, however I notice that you are trying to install an update that is not suitable for your operating system since it seems to be an update for a 64-bit version of Windows 7.
      I would like more information about it.
      I remain attentive to your comments.
    • Hi Gil! Thanks for coming back. Yeah, on a different rig now, and the urgency to "upgrade" IE32 to IE64 has passed. For some reason or other, the system did not want to install IE64 regardless of where it came from, or what it was for. But what we do know is MS have sized it up for the bit bucket in favour of their other offering.
      As a matter of interest, the only reason for wanting it was to run an old 64 bit Java program.

    • after 10yrs of windows 7 i would've thought there would be a stand alone file to re install windows update if it continued to give errors whilst trying to install updates. this seems to be a common fault i'm reading. for us non tech guys do the patrons on this website have a solution for us non tech guys to help us get windows 7 upto date before the big switch off in jan 2020. microsoft are not helping the likes of me and my fellow strugglers as all they seem to want us to do is buy laptops or desk top pc's with windows 10.
      please help if you can.
    • Hi tallbaddad,
      At the end of Windows 7 support, the update servers will shut down for home versions, while the versions used in banks and companies will continue to run for a while while the transition ends.
      I would not recommend acquiring a version of Windows 7 for companies since those available on the Internet are shared by thousands of users.
      I could recommend you to make some updates of the business versions manually without any guarantee. However, the best recommendation I could give you is to purchase a Windows 8.1 license that is compatible with some older PCs through an authorized wholesale distributor, since Microsoft will only offer you the most recent versions of its products.
      It is important that you consult with an expert about the compatibility of Windows 8.1 with your current device before making a purchase of this license.
      I remain attentive to your comments.
