    I get an error when my computer checks for new windows updates.

    It says it is an unknown error. Troubleshooting it has not helped.

    Any ideas before I system restore?

    I have run into this a couple of time.

    Usually you get an error code of some sort.

    If you search the update website for that code you may find help.

    A lot of times they have you add the update sites to your trusted sites.

    Sometimes a simple reboot or shutting off your AV or firewall will do the stick. :dunno:

    You can fix any good firewall for your PC. Otherwise you can reboot your PC.
