Can't install updates - error code 0x8007F004
I can't seem to update my computer with any Microsoft updates/software. I
always get a message stating Installation Failure - error code 0x8007F004. I
am on the primary computer (connected to the router) on a very small wireless
home network. I AM THE ADMINISTRATOR. I have no issues updating my
daughters' computer, only mine. I don't know what to do at this point. I
own the computer. I am the primary user. There is no admin or user above me.
When I tried to manually install SP3 for Windows XP (not using
Microsoft/Windows Update), it said that I don't have permission to update my
computer and to contact my administrator. I am running Windows XP
Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2. Please help! I'm at my wit's end
with this!
