Re: Windows Update Problem- Error code 80070002



Hi MowGreen
I have the same problem and cannot get around it. I have tried everything
that was posted but no avail.

Here's the content of this month's setuperr log:

Sorry, Vista not installed here and I have no idea how you can open the
setuperr.log unless it's as in XP Pro, where you'd have to navigate to
the log, right click it, choose Properties, click the Security tab and
then add your User Account to the Group that can access it.

Have you attempted to manually download updates from the MS Download
Center and use 'Run as administrator' by right clicking the downloaded
updates ? Suggest you do that BUT, prior to installing them, temporarily
disable the installed antivirus/security software from any real time
monitoring of the system.
MS Download Center
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/Search.aspx?

I have also tried stopping the update service and deleting the contents of the DataStore
multiple times but still nothing.

Were you able to do the above or is there another message preventing you
from doing so ?

Please post the contents of the setuperr.log
Go to Start > Run > copy and paste the below into the Open: line

Click OK or press Enter
