WINDOWS CORRUPT DATA

Recommended Posts

First:  Provide more information that just "some corrupt files"

 

The only thing I can come up with, with the provided information is for you to backup any important files and a complete reinstall of the OS.

Your files are probably ok. Updating Windows problems may have many reasons. Just tell us what is wrong with update.

WU_E_PT_HTTP_STATUS_FORBIDDEN. Windows likes to throw this when there is a corrupt download.

 

  • Run command prompt as administrator
  • in cmd -> net stop wuauserv
    • if it fails, just retry.
  • Using the file explorer, navigate to "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything inside this folder.
  • in cmd -> net start wuauserv
  • check for updates / retry updates.

Do you used any tool to control or change the way updates works before?

 

Also - upgrade should fix most of that type of problems.

Your only supposed to delete whats in the download folder... I am not sure what everything in the distribution folder does or whether it's important.

If it fails after emptying the Downloads folder, try disabling your Anti-Virus software temporarily. If anything else is causing the error, I am not sure how to fix it without tracing it, so I have no advice after that.

If your system have corrupted files then there are some solution by which you can get rid from this.

You can reset your PC or reinstall windows in your system. or you can follow some steps -

 

  1. Try System File Checker
  2. Run SFC scan from Safe Mode
  3. Perform SFC scan before Windows 10 starts
  4. Replace the files manually
  5. Use System Restore
  6. Reset your Windows 10
