Patches and other security updates are routinely released through Windows Update on the second Tuesday of every month - it's called Patch Tuesday.
However, Microsoft releases updates on other days as well, like for urgent fixes.
With the introduction of Windows Update, we invested heavily in building not just a software delivery service, but a commitment to delivering high quality updates in a timely manner.
Satya Nadella took the reins as Microsoft's new CEO two years ago, the Windows leadership team has changed, and the company is now releasing its widely used Word, Excel and Power Point Office software for phones and tablets, not just PCs.
It's even begun releasing new pet projects first, like a computer intelligence-powered camera app for Apple's i Phone. The software behemoth is making good on its promise to run Windows "as a service," meaning it will send refinements and new features to PCs a couple of times a year.
Today in this article, we are going to share a simple batch script which can help you in fixing various kind of issues related to Windows Update. This batch script simply resets Windows Update components such as system folders (catroot2, Software Distribution, etc) and services (Background Intelligent Transfer Service, Cryptographic Services and Windows Update or Automatic Updates Service) to troubleshoot the issue.
A big thanks to our reader "DTM" for sharing the commands which we have used in this batch script. Right-click on the file and select "Run as Administrator" option.
