I am trying to update my 64 bit Windows 7, and it is giving me the aforementioned error codes.
I generally install all the OS updates from Microsoft, but have never encountered an error like this that I couldn't figure out.
Searching for these error codes online brings me to Microsoft tech support forums dating back to 2008. One of the suggestions I found took me to the cmd prompt, but the first command I typed (net stop wuauserv ) resulted in "Error Code 5 / Access is denied" I'm logged in as an administrator, and I don't really understand what this command means, what this error code means, or indeed, why I was directed to the cmd prompt in the first place.
I tried installing the updates after disabling my Avast and Spybot, but got the same error codes.
Here is a description of the updates I want to install, it looks like they were published by MS very recently: http://imgur.com/e8azo
Anyone who can teach me about what is happening with my system will be much appreciated.
