RE: Error 80070643 Updating Windows Update
ngI have a couple of questions; and from them you can tell I'm no computer
I'm not concerned with auto updates which have definitely been failing. I'm
just concerned with manual updates which fail as well. A number of weeks ago
I was having trouble with a real slowdown in my computer. I called Dell and
paid for phone software service. At some point I think my registry was
touched though I don't remember for sure.
Can you explain. Is the disc you got the equivalent of a complete reformat?
Sorry for sounding and I guess being so dense.
