How do I resolve "The component store has been corrupted"

Good evening experts,

I am currently evaluating Manage Engines Desktop Central. I think it is a wonderful tool for patching among other things, but I am having a heck of a time getting evaluator support from the manage engine team. They are supposed to be available 24X5 , but I cant get to anyone, so I am coming to my reliable experts hoping that some of you are at least familiar with Manage Engine.  A particular patch that I am trying to deploy to a machine from the Desktop Central console  is:

The error I get is " The component store has been corrupted

I even tried downloading the patch manually: IE9-Windows6.1-KB2879017-x64.msu , but I still get the same error message above. Can anyone help me with this.

Thanks for the link TMekeel, but it didn't solve my issue. I still cant install  "IE9-Windows6.1-KB2879017-x64.msu"

Am I looking at a re-install of the operating system, as this is a critical update.

Have you tried the system update readiness tool?

That article TMekeel posted also has the steps to fix things manually; but, has one error.  You need to run the CMD prompt elevated.  The easiest way to do that is to do Start and, in the Search box, type CMD <CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER> try that procedure and see what fails to run or reregister corectly.

Between TMkeel and DavisMcACarn the component store is no longer corrupted and now updates are going just fine. Experts Exchange just works. Nuff Said.
