When trying to update my computer to Windows 8.1 I get a message saying it couldn't update, so it restored the previous version and it gave this code 0x800706BA - 0x20003. I am very computer illiterate but I thought I could at least do an update. Before I could even attempt the update, it said I had to uninstall my security tools that Windows 8 came with.
I thought maybe it was just a one time thing but when I tried to update again, it gave me the same error.
What is happening here?
According to Microsoft, this occurs when "an update installation crashes":http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Windows-Update-error-800706BA
They also state that the fix is to restart the system. Try this:
