I read another Windows 10 user's post on one of these many 0x800706d9 threads on the Microsoft site that the fix is to re-enable Windows Firewall in Services.I had security updates to Visual C , as well as the 1511 Cumulative Update. Right-click it, select Properties, set startup to Automatic, and click Start. 119GB Toshiba THNSNJ128GCST (SSD) 698GB Western Digital WDC WD7500AACS-00ZJB0 (HDD) 931GB Seagate ST1000DM003-9YN162 (HDD) 2794GB Seagate Backup Desk (USB) 3725GB Western Digital WD My Passport 25E2 (USB) Thank you so much for posting the solution.I kept getting an error message for all three, something like this: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3116908) - Error 0x800706d9 I tried various remedies I found online, but none worked. I stumbled upon this stupid error and wasn't able to install some programs because windows firewall was disabled.
