    • I ran the Reset Windows Update Tool >> option 2, Reset the Windows Update Components.
      I reboot my Windows 10 Pro 64-bit PC and ran Control Panel >> Windows Update troubleshooter.
      The troubleshooter runs and under Download and install pending updates, it states:
      Did you know that there are pending updates for this machine? Choose the "Apply this fix" option below to start the update process in the background immediately.
      Can I assume from this message that the Reset Windows Update Tool, has not worked as expected? TIA
    • Hi Avant,
      If the updates have been installed without problems lately, Windows Update does not present any issue. Otherwise, I recommend repairing the Windows installation.
  • Link wont download any file

  • Update Orchestrator service reset?

    • Is the new Update Orchestrator service in Windows 10 also reset?
    • Hi Elcap1tan,
      This tool only reset the Windows Update services. The Orchestrator service is not part of these services.
  • Does this script work on Windows 7 64bit professional?

    • Windows update stopped working on my Lenovo Think Pad which is about 4 years old. I have tried a lot of different fixes and none have worked.  I am reluctant to do a system restore.  Will this script work on my computer which runs Windows 7 64 bit professional?  I read through some of the Q and As and you mention it is for "home" use.  I use this computer at home and at my office.  I am the only user.  Please respond.  Thanks.
    • This tool can restore to some extent the Windows Update settings. However, it is not advisable to use it on computers that have configured domains or Group Policy since these configurations may be lost.
      If your PC doesn't have these configurations, you can try this solution.

  • Suggestion: Get-WindowsUpdateLog

    • You're clearly one of those guys who could write an entire OS in the form of a .BAT file! Great tool.
      I'd like to suggest that it would be handy to have a menu item that runs the PowerShell Get-WindowsUpdateLog command on Windows 10/2016.
    • Thanks for your suggestion, I'm going to perform tests in an executable version since in the script version you can lose control of the tool when using PowerShell commands.
  • .zip file is empty

    • I downloaded (3x) from the link above & every time I get a message the file is empty. Properties also says 0 bytes
      Where is everyone else getting this file from?
    • Ok, I tried again & the file downloaded.
    • This is a temporary error on the server. I do not know why it happens but I appreciate that you mention it.
  • Great Tool!

    • You made my day. Thx! But in the end a GPUPDATE /FORCE was necessary to make it work again.
      My Problem with update came after clearing partition C and doing a reboot at a wrong point of time.
    • Thanks, the gp command manages information about user policies and is normally used in companies, so I did not include it in this tool.
      I'm glad you found it useful!.
