Hi.. Today I had to do a re-install of Vista (for various reasons ) and it was going fine, (everything worked) then i started to run the updates you know. and there was like 78 of them. anyways, i got through some of them and now when i try to run windows update it doesnt work and it gives me an error message of
"80070002" now ive looked in COUNTLESS webpages for help on this, including microsoft's link that is supposed to lead you to a fix.. but it didnt work. (that involved shutting down the auto-update thing and then deleting some files in the Softwaredistribution folder ...didnt work..
ive tried using the SFC scan, but everytime i use it i get the same message that i need to reboot.. so that didnt work
also, i tried to just bypass installing updates, and go straight to SP1, but it always says i need to reboot my machine every time i try to run the standalone SP1 file.
anyhelp HUGELY appreciated here
