RE: I keep getting error code 0x80070426 when trying to update Win
Updating XP with SP2, I got error 0x80070426, at retry, I got error 0x8024D00C.
I went around error 0x8024D00C by following suggestion for this error code
in this forum: through "sesrvices.msc" and renaming SoftwareDistribution
folder.

The second time I got error 0x80070426, I submitted the error report, and
got another suggestion back saying that the problem was caused by Internet
Explorer. The recommendation was to install high-priority updates but I had
done that already.

So the next logical step was to update IE first, when attempting to update
to IE7 (I am using IE6 with its SP1) , the site asked for XP with SP2 !! So
now I am in a chicken and egg situation.

I tried the Dial-a-fix once but I did not know what I was doing: there was
a bunch of check boxes, and I didn't know what to check or uncheck.

Any suggestion?
