As soon as an error occurs, many users immediately think that the operating system is infected and that something catastrophic is about to happen.
Nor error code 0x80070005 what occurs when Windows Update Failure is not exempt from the suspicion of the consequence of a virus.
I also received the error Windows 10 held for tests and which we try to update to Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21390.1 (co_release). A new update that brings some important news on Windows 10, which I will write about in the next article.

In my case, it was not like that. “Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. "
Over time I noticed a strange thing related to the update system of Windows 10. If we choose a manual update it is good to have opened a browser in which to browse various web pages. I don't know why but I have the impression that downloading updates somehow goes into "idle" and the process fails.
