Many thanks, TL, That extension worked fine.

I can read the status page a lot easier now, and I find the forum pages easier on the eyes as well.

Many thanks to those who have made cunstructive and useful comments, not to those who try to hijack this to suit their own ends. The issue is now fixed for me.

Moderators, please lock this thread to avoid further flaming in what I intended as a friendly request.

It just won't be the same here without Celttooth.
Farewell and Godspeed, my friend.

Sorry to hitch-hike on yours, Suzie-Q, but I've spent a long time trying to think what to say, and nothing came.

On one of my systems, Win7 Professional, Update has decided to just sit there looking for updates for hours... (more than 12)

I tried riunning the Windows update troubleshooter that the Microsoft search pointed me at, and it then just hung at "Gathering data - this may take several minutes" for over an hour. I then checked the webpage I loaded it from, and the path mentioned Win 10... This S/W doesn't even check if it is on the correct OS version!!!!

I then ran the correct Update troubleshooter for Win 7, 8 & 8.1, that seems better, until it finished daying it had fixed 3 issues, but not the 0x80070057 error.

Internet searches seem to finish on "download my fix-everything toolkit & I'll charge you, or a vast sequence of very low-level commands turning off a lot of services, regedits, running (and installing) various packages from M$, then starting it all again, and the comments seem to say even then YMMV!!!!


Has anyone got a reliable way of fixing this, or is it back to reinstall??

A home made one I thought of:-

Bread
Butter
Crisps (USA - Potato chips)
Onion crispies
Branston Pickle (other pickles are available, choose your favourite)
Cheddar cheese (a mature one of choice)
English mustard
Ham (Honey Roast)
Butter
Bread

Optionally add German Pepper Salami somewhere the Ham...

Press down before trying to eat, to crunch the Potato crisps.

Sorry no picture, they don't last long ehough, and my mouth is watering now!!!!!

Not a hole alignment tool.

And while it could be used by the wife, that's not it's main function I'm glad to say considering it's size and weight!

And we have a winner!!! That was a quick one!

Jeweller's Mandrel or ring sizing tool, well done JumpinJohnny as the first ti name it.

It was my Father's for his Silversmithing hobby, he made quite a few rings as well as a lot of other larger silver and a few gold items. Including my wife and my wedding rings in gold.

PM on it's way.
