Reset Windows Updates using a batch file


Sometimes updates get hung up, or won't install from the SCCM software center. You will need to reset Windows Updates. You can do this manually, or with a batch file script

net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptSvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver
ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old
net start wuauserv
net start cryptSvc
net start bits
net start msiserver

If that doesn't work, try this:

Net stop bits
Net stop wuauserv
Net stop appidsvc
Net stop cryptsvc
Del %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat /Q
Del "%HOMEDRIVE%\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat" /Q
Del %WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\*.* /s /Q
Net start bits
Net start wuauserv
Net start appidsvc
Net start cryptsvc
