Re: Error 80070020 trying to install KB955519



Open up the Task Manager and find out what else is running that could
possibly be interferring with Windows Update and locking up the files etc.

It's going to be a slow process of elimination.

Are you running any programs such as Spybot?

Norton Internet Security came pre-installed. I uninstalled it when it
expired and installed the McAfee. I have also run the Symantec removal
tool
again since then.

Thanks,
Ray

Speaking of preinstalled software, what (if any) anti-virus or security
suite free-trial software (e.g., Norton; another McAfee application) came
preinstalled on the machine when you bought it? Did you uninstall it
before
you installed the McAfee Security Center-freebie from Comcast?

McAfee Antivirus, free from Comcast, set to receive updates

Have tried running with antivirus disabled from McAfee Security Center,
as
well as msconfig selective startup. (In safe mode with network
support,
the
installer refuses to run.)

The only anti-spyware is McAfee and Defender, and have tried turning
them
off as above.

No third party firewall, and turned Windows Firewall off.

When did you install Vista SP1? Did you install it manually or via
Windows
Update?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than
Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these
applications running in the background when you installed Vista SP1?

Unlimited installation and compatibility support for Vista SP1 is
available
at no charge through 18 Mar-09

Thanks, I had already found that article and tried all of the
methods.
1)
Reboot, 2) Safe mode with network, 3) clean boot, 4) disable spyware
and
AV,
5) disabled firewall.

I have downloaded the file Windows6.0-KB955519-x64.msu, saved it on
my
local
drive, and tried running it with all of the above methods and still
get
the
error.

Here is what seems to be the relevant sections of WindowsUpdate.log
and
Logs\CBS\CBS.log, which don't seem to say anything more than
reporting
the
80070020 error. Is there another logfile somewhere that would have
more
detail (like, which file can't be accessed or which process has it
opened)?

Running Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit, have been unable to get this
update
to
install. Tried both using Windows Update and downloading
standalone.
Have
disabled McAfee antivirus, msconfig selective startup, etc., with
no
luck.
Any suggestions?
