Hey Everyone!
I'm unable to do any windows updates due to error code 800B0100. I think a recent virus I had may have tampered with update files. I tried running the System Update Readiness Tool as suggested in Help and Support however the update installation on that failed too. Due to other problems I've been having recently I'm considering re-installing my OS at this point.
Any advice you have would be really appreciated! Thanks :)

See this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956702

More than likely, if you do a 'clean' install, you will be able to get all the security updates. :thumbup2:
