System Update Readiness Tool

 The System Update Readiness Tool is produced by Microsoft to check your computer for inconsistencies in the available and installed Windows Updates. As well as detecting problems, it attempts to resolve issues when they are found. It comes in handy in case your computer is having trouble installing an update, and you should always run it before you install a major Service Pack on your system, or upgrade to a new version of Windows. Microsoft have released a new version of the System Update Readiness Tool because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software. If you have a version of the System Update Readiness Tool on your system, make sure you replace it with this new version before making major changes to your system setup.
