Vista update failed
MY PC is running Vista Home Premium. I recently performed a full system
recovery with a format. I installed SP1. I went online to Windows Update
for updates. The process started with Update wanting to update a program
which was needed before it could search for the latest Vista updates. I
started the install. After a long time, a message appeared stating that the
update couldn't be completed. It gave me error code 80070005. What should I
do now?
