Error Code 8007000B When installing updates
I have Windows XP and SP2 w/IE7 and when I am trying to check for updates I
get Error Code 8007000B. I do not have no Vista or Vista Premium. Help! This
is so frustrating!

If you're running a third-party firewall, disable it temporarily and enable
the Windows Firewall.

If you connect via a router, connect directly to the modem.

Re: Error Code 8007000B When installing updates
Tip: Temporarily disable real-time protection by your anti-virus and/or
anti-spyware applications (e.g., CounterSpy, Spysweeper, Spybot, AVG
Anti-Spyware) and/or any third-party firewall (e.g., ZA) before attempting
to install the update(s

Start a free Windows Update support incident request:
https://support.microsoft.com/oas/de...spx?gprid=6527

Support for Windows Update:
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/wusupport

For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY in
the United States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with
security updates. When you call, clearly state that your problem is related
to a Security Update and cite the update's KB number (e.g., KB123456).

For more information about how to contact your local Microsoft subsidiary
for security update support issues, visit the International Support Web
site: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

For enterprise customers, support for security updates is available through
your usual support contacts.

<cmd_output OS="XPsp2">
F:\>set /a c = 0xB
11
F:\>net helpmsg %c%

An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
</cmd_output>


As usual the error code only gives broad hints about what is wrong.
You can guess about its meaning or look for the context in which it is given
in the logs that the install attempt will have created or added to.

As PA Bear has indicated one reasonable interpretation of the code
given the above general meaning would be that the either the downloaded
update executable or its contents have been corrupted somehow by security
programs. So, the suggestion under that hypothesis is to remove all likely
sources of such corruption and try both the download and install again.
You could also try an alternate source of download by downloading the update
manually and avoiding WU or AU entirely.


Good luck
