Assistance with Error C0000034 applying update operation xxx of xxxxx

Hi

 

I have a windows 8 laptop on its way to me from a client with the error C0000034 applying update operation xxx of xxxxx

 

The customer has mentioned that she moved the mouse to wake the laptop and saw this message on the screen. Seems like a botched windows update.. 

 

Regarding the laptop, it's running windows 8.0

The laptop must be on windows 8 due to an accounting package which doesn't work on 8.1 or W10! So I am really wanting to fix rather then rebuild the OS

 

This is what I have attempted so far.

 

I have tried over the phone to get then to run startup repair which doesn't help.

 

I also tried running them through the common command prompt fix (running notepad to find that .XML file and edit) which that .XML file did not exist in the winSxS folder.

 

I have tried running into safe mode which shows the same error C0000034

 

There are no system restore points to recover to either.

 

Anyways,

 

Trying to research this as much as I can before the laptop arrives. So I can actually try to fix this. Rather then reinstalling from scratch.

 

Thanks

Shaun

Renaming the windows update folder (software distribution)

Would be wise?

I think you'll find it's in use and can't be renamed, you could disable the windows update processes/services, and then do that (thus effectively forcing the creation of a new update folder) which could work.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds
