I appreciate the site information, but have already been to those. I have
found info on 3 out of 4 of my error codes, followed all instructions for
curing the issue to no avail. I am now on my third Research tech, and have
found out that there are many other people having the same issue. From what
I have learned from the Microsoft research techs, there is a code error that
they are trying to find. The problem does not seem to be related to any
brand computer, security or other software, and does not affect every
computer that is downloading updates, so it is a coding error that is eluding
the Research section of tech support at this time. I have sent multiple logs
to Microsoft, and now have spent several hours each night over the last 5
days letting Research upload and download files and logs to and from my
computer. My entire registry has been raped, and yet there is still no
answer. The tech is going through a large volume of log files, and has yet
to discover the error in the code. I have done my own research on my other
computer, and have followed a similar, yet different path that microsoft is
following in their seach for the problem. I have not found any sign of
malware, spyware, or virus. I am nearing the point of simply wiping the hard
disk and sterilizing the cpu and starting over. I do find it interesting
that the tech reported that the reason I needed to email my logs to him is
that the website that Research uses to provide the key for the diagnostic
tools had crashed, and was unable to provide him with a key to continue his
research on my machine. It is ironic that their own website was unusable,
yet they want to work on my computer.
As I see many others in the forum have similar download update concerns,
if I find the coding error I will let the forum know. Anyone who gets a
break in this scenario, please post to the forum or this thread.
