    I was installing Microsoft Student/Home-2007 and the computer went into an auto restart. The install never ended correctly, however, now the PC will not boot. I have tried, (safe mode/with networking/with prompt), previous restore point, etc…, and no luck. What can I try next? Thank You

    Hello Leo,

    I had the same problem a few weeks ago.  Try the following commands to see if it clears up the looping problem.

    Type cd C:windowswinsxs, and then press ENTER.

    Type ren pending.xml pending.old, and then press ENTER.

     These steps are desribed in the following KB article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/949358 which we are incorporating into a larger Fix it.

     Thanks,

    Hello Shannon,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Would it be possible to e-mail us the WindowsUpdate.log file located in c:windows? The WindowsUpdate file will provide information that should allow me to narrow down why Windows Update is failing for you. If we can determine why it is failing we can then update the Fix it solution so that it helps others that run into the same issue you did.

    If you need immediate assistance, please use "Get Help Now" link at the top right of the Knowledge Base article.

    Hello Jack,

    Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback. 0x8000FFFF usually represents “generic” failures for which the program is not able to identify the exact cause at the time the failure occurs.  

    You can check to see if the Volume Shadow Copy service is set to Manual and is not disabled.

    Select Start

    In the Start Search field type services.msc and press the enter key

    In the Services console scroll down the list until you get to Volume Shadow Copy

    If the service states it is Disabled in Startup Type column the double click to open the properties

    Select the Startup type drop down list and select Manual

    Click Ok

    Close the services console

    Attempt to run the backup again

    This issue is a bit outside of the Windows Update Fix it that we released for the 0x8000FFFF error. If the above steps do not resolve your issue you can open a support incident by using the “Get Help Now” link at the top right of any of our Knowledge Base articles.

    Hey Simon,

    Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. After doing some digging around there is a good chance that the article is in fact incorrect.

    The reason you got the message "This "Fix it" does not apply to your system" is because we check for the existance of the three values called out in the Knowledge Base (KB) article. If one exists then the Fix it runs. If none exist then the message you encountered is displayed.

    The main reason we opened up feedback through our blog and e-mail is for this exact reason. If the article is incorrect then our Fix it is as well and we would like to make it so both are correct.

    Can you export your components registry key using the following command so we have a backup?

    * Select Start > All Programs > Accessories

    * Right mouse click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run as administrator"

    * In the command prompt type the following without the quotes and hit enter

    "reg export hklmcomponents %userprofile%desktopcomponents.reg"

    * Next type the following without the quotes and hit enter

    "reg delete HKLMComponents /v PendingXmlIdentifier"

    * Reboot your machine and attempt Windows Update againt to see if this resolves your 0x8000FFFF error.

    Please let us know if this resolved your issue. If it did I will have the Fix it and KB updated with the correct information.

    I want to thank you again for taking the time to provide this information. If it works making these changes will also help countless other users.

    Thanks,

    Hello Kayak Gal,

    Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. The MSI is failing to run due to not being able to call VBScript.

    Can you go through the following steps to see if this resolves the 2738 error?

    1. Run Command Prompt as administrator

    a) Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories

    b) Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator

    2. If you are using 32-bit version of Windows:

    Type cd %windir%system32 into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    If you are using 64-bit version of Windows:

    Type cd %windir%syswow64 into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    3. Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    I do know that if you install the latest Windows Updated client a lot of issues are resolved. But if your updating is broken you can’t get the newest client so you are stuck.

  47. Simon Hunt says:

    I have an ACER 5310 Laptop running Vista Home Basic (32 bit), which has refused to update for over a year.

    I ran the "Fix Windows Update error 0x8000FFF" tool as suggested, but upon invocation the tool helpfully reports:

    > This "Fix It" does not apply to your system.

    I therefore attempted to edit the registry manually, as per the instructions on

    support.microsoft.com/kb/946414

    Your instructions say to remove the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINECOMPONENTSPendingXmldentifier

    I have located in the registry the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINECOMPONENTSPendingXmlldentifier

    which is very similar but note the subtle difference in the spelling of "PendingXmlldentifier".

    Is this simply a misprint in the instructions (in which case Microsoft really ought to take more care when providing instructions for something as crucial as the editing of registry keys), or are they indeed different keys?

  48. Simon Hunt says:

    Hi Brian

    Thanks for such a quick response.

    I followed those instructions, and the key has duly gone. However, I am still unable to perform an update. This time the error code is 80073712.

    I’ve found the following page on the issue

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957310/en-us

    which I’ll try next unless you have any alternative suggestions.

    Thanks again.

    Simon

  49. Simon Hunt says:

    Yes, I did that.

    I’ve just tried

    Method 1: Run the System Update Readiness tool (Checksur.exe)

    which installed update KB947821 but didn’t fix the problem.

    Are you confident that

    Method 2: Install Windows Vista Service Pack 1

    won’t screw up the system entirely after so many updates have failed over the past year for no apparent reason?

    I keep getting the error WindowsUpdate 80004002. I have tried everything to resolve this problem and it says I need KB957000 file and I downloaded it from Microsoft and ran it and it says it’s note for my system. I am running Vista Home Premium 64bit.

    I did the Article ID: 946414 fix and i don’t have the reg’s he is talking about. Any idea’s? Thanks

  59. Leo says:

    I ran into this problem (stage 3 of 3 stuck in endless reboot loop) last night when rebooting my laptop after going through windows update process for my Vista Home Premium system.

    After finding the Fix It solution, the system came back up, but there is not way to get anymore updates, it constantly errors out with various error codes. After the update is attempted and failed. and the system is rebooted, the same "3 of 3" loop happens until the Fix It solution is attempted. Then the system boots up. The update process is therefore not working at all.

    Furthermore, the boot time has increased; the wake up time from sleep has increased; I cannot run sfc process, ir keep telling me to reboot because there is a fix pending (reboot does not help).

    I ran Checksur.exe after downloading it, but it made no difference. I also attempted to install Windows Update Agent standalone package, but it also failed with the similar error code as Windows Update itself.

  60. Leo says:

    John,

    I tried that as well. So far I tried the registry, the pending.xml file, the Checksur., even reinstalling the updage agent itself. No luck. And, as I said, certain funcitons of the laptop are just not as speedy, it takes significantly longer to boot up, same for shutdown. And the update just doesn’t work, the error codes are sometimes different.

    I also cannot enable ordisable any of vista’s features, although the Fix It solution above seems to at least gove me the list of installed features back. However, unchecking or checking any feature always errors out with some "unknown error" or such.

  61. Leo says:

    Steve,

    I did that. I got the same error or errors when running the standalog agent install as I got from running any of windows updates.

    I just really hate the idea of reinstalling the OS. It takes too much time to reinstall all the software.

  62. Leo says:

    Steve,

    I’ll send it tonight.

    One question though…are the registry keys in question suppose to reappear? Is this because of the attempted updates?

    Thanks.

  63. Leo says:

    Steve,

    Logs emailed

    Thanks

    Just wanted to thank you for the fix (below) and ask you why error 8000ffff comes to be with Vista? I was setting up my girlfriends laptop and came across the error when trying to get her the latest updates from Microsoft. I have my MCSE, but have never run into this before!!!

    At any rate, it succeeded to work…much appreciated.

    1. Run Command Prompt as administrator

    a) Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories

    b) Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator

    2. If you are using 32-bit version of Windows:

    Type cd %windir%system32 into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    If you are using 64-bit version of Windows:

    Type cd %windir%syswow64 into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    3. Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    Toshiba Satellite laptop with Vista Home Premium started have problems with audio, WiFi connectivity, keyboard keys and antivirus immediately after an automatic update of SP1.

    Uninstalled SP1, and all previous problems vanished.  Checked for updates to audio and WiFi, and reinstalled antivirus.  All still working fine at this point.

    Downloaded fresh copy of SP1, and it failed with the 0x8000FFFF error.  I’ve tried all the steps above without success.  Spent over 2 hours on the phone to Microsoft AT MY EXPENSE, and they cannot fix it.

    Since this bug-ridden Service Pack clearly doesn’t work, what are the implications of running the operating system without it?

    Had the same error to install SP1 on Windows 7 (x86).

    The problem on my system was an outdated 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' driver.

    When I installed the newest driver and rebooted the system, I could install SP1 without problems. 🙂

    Just began noticing when I would boot up, I would get the window "Internet Explorer has stopped working" and then "Looking for a solution".  It would do this repeatedly, several times in a row, even though my IE was still functioning.  Tried to do a system restore to several weeks ago, and it didn't work. Tried another system restore and another and another and got the same error message, "System restore could not be completed, error 0x8000ffff".  I have tried using the cmd dskchk/f and dskchk/r ops, to no avail.  Any help advice would be appreciated…
