    Hi,

    To solve your problem you must employ the following methods.

    Windows Update error FFFFFFFE, means an update cannot be installed because of a problem on your computer.
    Which is usually caused by a malware.
    To prevent computer from being vulnerable, Windows halts installing update.
    check the time, date/year & time-zone are correctly set.
    Clear the Temp File/from the Cache.
    Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >Disk Cleanup
    DO NOT TOUCH THE REGISTRY.

    Reboot.

    Thanks.

    Dear Friend!!
    The error FFFFFFFE occurs when any update is not possible due to a Malware.
    Very first, scan whole computer and also boot scan to detect the malware.And then try to install that update again.
    if malware is not detected, then it is advised to repair your computer by reinstalling windows 7 in custom.

    OR

    >>Open windows update troubleshooter and runs it will find the error and fix that automatically

    OR
