Windows 10 Service Registration is Missing or Corrupt



Hi :slight_smile:
A problem some folk have experienced.
One way to fix is this.

a) Press Windows key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).

b) On the open Command Prompt window copy and paste
the commands (all at once)
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

c) Wait for the process to complete.

d) Close the Command Prompt.

Now, try to install Windows Updates again and check if it helps.

Also once you run sfc /scannow, after this procedure, you no longer would be getting the error code. That should fix your error message.
