[FIX] “Windows Could Not Search For New Updates” In Windows 8 Or Later

Published September 10, 2012 in Troubleshooting, Windows 8.


  1. thnk for some useful tips……………

  2. I tried this and it didn’t work :( I get this in my command prompt:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]
    (c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:windowssystem32>SFC /SCANNOW

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.

    Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.


    I cant do anything on my computer because of this stupid error. and I cant even download stuff from windows update cause of this error code 80070570(assuming its the same since the numbers are the same from the error that wont let me delete stuff)

    Please help!!

    ^^ Sorry if that didn’t worked. Firstly try to fix Windows Update issues using the fixes provided in following article:


    And then try the SFC command again. It should work fine :)

  4. Ok so I said the command prompt and the last thing it said was that the verification process was 100% complete. It didn’t give me any results though. I restarted anyways, did I mess up? I waited over 10 mins after it was done to make sure it was done and nothing happened, not even fan speed changes. Should i have been told if it found something wrong? And since i restarted afterwards, did it possibly get fixed even without telling me if something was wrong or not?

    ^^ Let the scan complete itself. If it found any corrupted files, it will repair them. The scan time depends upon the corrupted files on the system. So retry the commands again, if it found and repair any corruption, it will notify you like the message “Windows Resource Protection didn’t found any integrity violations” for no corruption.

  6. This really worked! thanks a lot!!!

  7. Using background intelligent transfer service worked for me Thanks
