    ^^ So after performing these steps, you still can’t check for new updates? Well, you can try this as well:

  3. Hello.
    Can you explain more about how that powerShell module works? I am quite of a power user, so a geeky explanation is not a problem.

    Thanks

    ^^ By default, it forcefully connects to Windows Update, presents a listing of available updates, and prompts to accept. There is an acceptall switch that will automatically accept the updates. You can run following command to get another switches for this module in the scheme:

    PS C:\> gcm -Module pswindows*

  5. Thank you for the reply.

    I have successfully followed the steps above. I have installed all updates present in the PS ISE.
    However, after restart, in Windows Update, the problem still occur. To make things interesting, the error code is exactly the same as the one shown in this article.
    I will now do a WU reset (seven forums has this covered) and will see if I could solve this issue. In the mean time, if you could tell me what to do, please do so.

    If else fails, I might need to depend on such PS module just to update my Windows 8.1.

    Thank you in advance
