Fix Windows Update Error 8007000D


Window update error 8007000D means that there is some form of corruption in the Software Distribution folder.

The simplest fix is to rename the folder at this location “%windir%/Software distribution – normally, that should be Computer | C Drive | Windows |Software distribution.

To be able to rename the folder, you should first stop the Window Update service like this:

Make sure you are logged on as an Administrator

Stop the Windows Update service

This will stop the Windows Update services and allow you to rename the folder.

After renaming the folder, restart the Windows Update service and try updating your system again. The update service should recreate the Software distribution folder and repopulate it with updated data including missing updates and you should be able to install updates.
