Delete Cache


If you’re still having trouble after running the troubleshooter, try to delete the cache so that your Windows update can work properly. 


Input "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and click “OK” to launch to the folder. Delete all files present in this folder but don’t delete the folder itself.
