    Windows update error 0X80070057

    Hi all, I am in need of your help.

    I am trying to update my Window 7 to Windows 10, however it doesn't want to start to downloading...

    I have cleared my cache but this made no difference.

    Looking at my Windows Update I seem to have a problem as it is stuck checking for updates....

    I have run the Windows Update Diagnostic Tool windows 7 which tells me I have an error 0X80070057

    I would not say the computer is overly slow or CPU maxed out.

    My connection to my broadband internet is OK.

    Then using Google I found the very useful site below

    Less than 24 hours ago I was pulling my hair out and posting here for help.

    Last night I changed my power setting so the laptop did not shutdown and clicked on Windows 10 Update. Walked away and went to sleep.
    This morning to my surprise it was 25% through initializing Windows 10. However it did take 6 hours to do this.
    Went to work for 8 hours came back and the computer was sitting wait for me to click install. Not sure it needed 8 hours.

    2 hours later here we are Window Update working and on Windows 10.
