Windows updates error #80070008B
Just installed Windows Vista Home Premium. Had to register the key by
calling Microsoft. My problem is that I cannot get any updates to install.
All of the updates from the very first update has failed. I have tried
downloading them myself but they still fail. I know that there was a way to
reset windows updates in windows XP but is there a way to reset windows
updates in Vista? All help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Open services.msc and halt the automatic update service. Then empty the
contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and restart the service.

I tried opening services.msc and halting the automatic update service &
emptying the folder but updates still won't work. I've tried it several
times....

clicking start, type "services.msc" ENTER. the service is listed simply
as "Readyboost". make sure its on automatic and on.
