Error code 8E5E0147 when Windows Update fails to install updates


  • Hello. I have noticed that no new updates have installed on my computer(except for all Windows Defender updates as well as the recent Microsoft .NET Framework Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework Family updates). Everything else, such as the security updates, have failed since January 13, 2009. I have seen another person who has had this problem for 9 months. The error code is 8E5E0147. The Wndows Update does download, and attempts to install the updates. However, after it finishes, it says "failed". I am concerned because my computer is not updated for the April Fool's virus. Can I have any help here? I have heard some people say that I may need to request a Windows installation CD.
