How to Reset Windows Update Components Easily

The whole process may seem complex to you. But, When you try by yourself, you will understand how easier it is. You can reset update components either manually or automatically. I’ll give instructions for both.

Manually Reset Windows Update Components:

This method includes modifying software distribution folder and catroot2 folder. However, Here are the whole procedures.

To reset update components, do these things:

1. Open Command Prompt with Admin Rights:

First of all, you will need to open the command prompt as administrator. To do it-

  • Open Start Menu.
  • Type cmd. Now, You should see the command prompt.
  • Right click on it and choose Run as Administrator.

2. Stop Update Related Services:

As we are going to reset windows update components, you will need to stop all related services. If you already don’t know how to do it, follow instructions from below.

  • In the command prompt, type those commands and hit enter for each.
net stop bits

then,

net stop wuauserv

then,

net stop appidsvc

at last

net stop cryptsvc

These commands will stop BITS, Windows Update and the Cryptographic service.

3. Delete qmgr*.dat Files:

You can delete these files by executing this command.

Del “%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat”

4. Reset Software Distribution and Catroot2 Folder:

In past, I’ve published two articles on how to reset software distribution folder and the way reset catroot2 folder. You can read these articles to know how to reset those folders. But, Don’t start the update services after resetting them.

5. Reset Background Intelligent Transfer and Update Service

To do it, Run those commands. Don’t forget to press enter for each.

sc.exe sdset bits D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)

and

sc.exe sdset wuauserv D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)

6. Reregister BITS and Update Files:

Now, You will have to register the BITS and update files. To do it, Run these commands from the list. You can download the command list from here.

7. Reset Winsock:

To do it, run the following command.

netsh winsock reset

8. Start the Update Related Services:

After doing above things, finally, you will have to start the update services you had stopped at the beginning. To do it, execute these commands.

At first

net start bits

then,

net start wuauserv

then,

net start appidsvc

at last

net start cryptsvc

Done. You have successfully reset windows update components. But, To see the effect, you must restart windows. Then, Check for latest windows update.

Automatically Reset Update Components:

Shawn Brink from tenforums created a .bat file which can automatically do the whole things that I have described above. You can use it to reset windows update components automatically. To do it-

  • At first, Download the bat file. Your browser may block the file, you can allow it as it is fully safe.
  • Then, Right click on the downloaded file and choose Run as Administrator.
  • When the process finished, restart windows.

These are the ways to reset windows update components. I hope it will help you to get rid of various update related problems in your computer.
