Tech giant Microsoft has just released a new tool to help its users fix the errors that usually come out during the Windows update process, supporting the versions 10, 8.1 and 7. Naturally, this move represents an important response from Microsoft to this issue, given the fact that the company has been gaining a lot of criticisms considering that this was something that customers were heavily complaining about.

The Tool Will Help Users Fix The Errors In The Easiest Way

According to Express, the tool addresses error codes such as 0x80070002, 0x80073712, 0x800705B4, 0x80070422, 0x80070020, 0x80004005, 0x8024200B, 0x80070003, 0x80070643, 0x8024402F. Of course, these are the most common errors that usually pop up during the Windows update installation, and many users weren´t able to find a proper way to solve it until now.

In order to do this with Windows 7, you just have to right-click the network icon in the notification sheet and then click Troubleshoot problems. Once you´ve done that, you need to follow the steps in the wizard to solve the network issues and then install the Windows Update one more time to have it without any problem.

The Tool Is Not Available For Windows 8

As reported by the International Business Times, if you´re running on Windows 8 you will have to change to the 8.1 version, given the fact that the tool that Microsoft provided only work with this one. To fix the problem on Windows 8.1, you´ll have to press the Windows key, type Network problems and click Identify and repair network problems. Once you´ve done that, just follow the indicated steps and run Windows Update at the end.

Things are a little bit easier if you´re using Windows 10, given the fact that the only thing you´ll have to do is download that Windows Update Troubleshooter, select Open or Save in the pop-up Window and then click Next and follow the on-screen steps in order to find and fix the issues with the Windows Update.
