Code 800B010C Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

anyone can help
1 Solution
Mostly this error is issued by a defective file in the catroot2 folder in windows\system32

Best shot is to move all files in windows\system32\catroot2 to a new location. (or delete them...)

Try to run the update after this, it should work then.
Or a virus is blocking it
