When I try to do the windows 8.1 update I get error code 0x80070057

Hello, I am having a slight problem doing the windows 8.1 update from my Windows 8 Pro with media center computer.

It downloads fine, then goes through the checks and goes into "Applying Changes" for about 3 minutes, then it fails giving me error code 0x80070057.  I tried the reboot in normal mode suggestion from another post, but it did not help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This worked for me just fine. I first removed a few USB devices but that made no difference. It was disabling my Webroot Antivirus software that allowed the update to proceed.

Thanks for the tip!
