Flaws led to unsuccessful installation of future updates.

Microsoft has launched a non-critical, non-security update to fix an issue with the Windows Update system in some of the versions of its Windows operating system.

According to the software major, there were some issues in the Windows servicing store leading to unsuccessful installation of future updates, service packs and software.

The latest update verifies the system for errors in Windows Update with codes including 0x80070002, 0x8007000D, 0x800F081F, 0x80073712, 0x800736CC, 0x800705B9, 0x80070246, 0x8007370D, 0x8007370B, 0x8007370A, 0x80070057, 0x800B0100, 0x80092003, 0x800B0101, 0x8007371B, 0x80070490, then resolves them.

Users of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Vista can update via the System Update Readiness Tool, while Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012 have to use Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool.

A recent report revealed that around 92% of Microsoft software vulnerabilities could be avoided by operating Windows users with 'standard' rather than 'administrator' rights.
