Re: Code 80070490
I had this happen to me to for the longest time. Not really sure what i did
to fix it, but here's a few things.
1) Flush the dns cache. Open a command prompt and type ipconfig/flushdns.
2) on the bottom of the Windows update screen, does it say "you receive
updates: Managed by your system administrator?
if so, right below that is a "check online for updates from Microsoft
update". I know it seems terribly obvious, but every once in awhile, i still
get an error if i just click on the "check for updates" button. But if i
click on the check online link, it works. Don't really know why unless it
has something to do with domain, policy, or other server settings that I'm
not privvy to.
