We all know that Microsoft releases different versions of Service Packs to overcome the limitations of the Windows operating system and increase the reliability and compatibility of the system with many applications. These free distributed Service Packs can be downloaded directly from the Internet and must be installed on the computer in time to ensure stable performance.
Although it is not easy to perform this task smoothly, because you sometimes get annoying error messages from Windows Update such as Windows Update Error 0xc0190036. Such errors prevent you from successfully installing the desired updates. But you’ve come to the right place because I’ll show you how to effectively fix these Windows update errors.
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 includes advanced security features that support 64-bit VIA processors (on Windows Vista). You can upgrade to this new version to benefit from improved and expanded security features. However, there is no doubt about the number of problems that can occur with updating Windows Vista SP2. Such problems can make your system unbootable and make all disk partitions inaccessible. This can lead to a loss of Windows data and therefore Windows data recovery software applications become necessary to recover lost partitions and data.
Despite the above behavior of Windows Vista, the installation program resists execution in any mode. This means that you cannot switch to safe mode to try to restore the system. Due to the update enabled, reinstalling a botched Vista SP2 and restarting the system will not help. Finally, it causes the loss of the partition by making it inaccessible. Before performing a Windows partition recovery to recover lost data, you must determine the cause of this behavior.
How To Fix Windows Update Error 0xc0190036:
To avoid this error, you must execute the chkdsk /f repair command to solve disk corruption problems and disable all disk defragmentation utilities before attempting to apply the Service Pack. Since the system files are corrupted, you must replace them with a new copy. The following solutions can help you:
Boot your computer with the Windows Vista installation disk and run sfc/scannow to scan for damaged system files and/or run the chkdsk command.
If this does not help you, you can repair the Windows installation or perform the repair at startup.
Using Windows System Restore
To enable and configure Windows system recovery, do the following:
Step 1 – Type Control Panel in the Windows search box, then press Enter. When the list of search results appears, click on the Control Panel link.
Step 2 – Type “Retrieval” in the search field of the control panel and press “Enter”. Click Retrieve in the list of search results.
Step 3 – In the Advanced Recovery Tools list, click Configure System Recovery.
Step 4 – When the System Properties window appears, click the Configure button.
Step 5 – Select the drive letter for your Windows installation (usually C:), then click Configure.
Step 6 – In the System Protection window, select Enable System Protection. Use the cursor to select the disk space you want to use for recovery points, then click OK.
