Re: error 80070420
I have followed the instructions, but continue to run into this error.

I downloaded the redistributable update, unregistered msiexec ran the
update, then registered msiexec. Yet when selecting windows update from the
Tools menu of IE, I keep running into this very same error.

Thanks in advance for any help.
