windows 7 update failed error message

I HAD TO RUN A NEW WINDOWS UPDATE AFTER COMPLETION I RECEIVED A  error 8007f0f4 or FFFFFFFF

 

The problem is usually caused by a malware (malicious software) infection on your computer. I RAN NORTON SCAN

 

NO ISSUES COULD BE FOUND. WHATS CAUSING THIS HELP.

Welcome,

I'd suggest that you cold boot your computer and then try running windows update again. I don't think malware causes as many problems as it gets blamed for. I do know it exists but I haven't seen too many windows updates that are infected. They usually get corrupted first. Post b ack with your results and we'll continue to troubleshoot if necessary.

Thanks
