I don't work for Microsoft and am aware of the publically available list
of Vista update error codes -
They are woefully lacking, to put it mildly.
I can only offer quasi-educated guesses when it comes to 8007370B.
> 8007370B ERROR_SXS_INVALID_IDENTITY_ATTRIBUTE_NAME
> The name of an attribute in an identity is not within the legal range.
Perhaps there is file corruption in the WinSxS subfolder; perhaps the
identity reference is a Cryptography issue; perhaps NAV caused the
corruption issue in WinSxS but it occurred over a period of time rather
than all at once.
Perhaps Vista is brittle when it comes to swapping out files stored in
WinSxS and self corrupts itself.
One thing I do know ... NAV is not reliable enough to be used in
conjunction with any version of Windows and can/will do more harm than good.
As a first step all I can recommend is to boot to the Windows Repair
Environment or System Repair and see if that can resolve the updating
issue. Then configure NAV *NOT* to scan nor monitor -
Since I do not run Vista on any of my systems any recommendation I can
give you is second hand knowledge garnered from other MVPs, Vista Users
such as yourself in this newsgroup, articles/blogs by folks who have
resolved updating issues/error codes, and *tiny* drips of info that MS
passes on to MVPs.
