    Update hangs at preparing to install

    Update always hangs at preparing to install. It works fine after running the update troubleshooter. Problem is, the next time I try to install updates it hangs again at preparing to install. Any ideas.

    All updates?

    Any indication of what the troubleshooter fixes?

    Service Registration Missing or Corrupt

    Windows Update Error 0x80070057(2015-08-18-T-09_00_50A)

    I have update set to alert me but not to install automatically.

    Thanks for any help you can give me. Problem isn't serious, but it sure is annoying

    Is the system up-to-date with patches?

    Do you re-boot after the troubleshooter is completed?

    The system is up-to-date and I install updates after running the troubleshooter. I usually reboot after updates even if not required. Next time I have to update it hangs again.

    Next time try re-booting after running the troubleshooter.

    BTW, is the user account a standard user or admin user?
