Re: Error number: 0x80070420

Over 4 yrs into the future and this post helped me. My updates are up
and running again. This also fixed the automatic updates in my new XP
install. If you are still following this Noel...This was not a guess.
Great understanding of the OS. Thanks for the help!

God bless,
Jack
