I did do a search prior to this post so I apologize if I've missed a fix. The last thread I could find that is associated with my problem was here; http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...amp;hl=80070002
I went through it all but the posts abruptly ended March 10th without any fixes.
So here's my problem, first I noticed my computer will not update from the Windows site automatically. I'm referring to occasionaly seeing the yellow sign on the taskbar when updates are ready to download or install. So I first checked Windows Security Center and my automatic updating is "on". I then went to the control panel/Windows update and selected to check for updates manually, then I get a message saying "Windows could not search for new updates". The error found and listed in the message is 80070002. I did click on the "get help with this error option" and went through the following procedures as suggested/recommended by MS, which said to start by turning off auto-updating, going to a particular file and clearing it, then turning back on auto-updating and then manually checking for updates. It didn't work I'm sorry to say.
I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 bit, SP1 (build 6001).
Any help would be appreciated.
