RE: KB935807 - Error 80070002 (Generic soluton doesn't help)
How did you get it to work from that site? I've been directed to that site
from several different routes, and it doesn't help me at all (have been
getting the 80070002 error for months and tried the fix given in the help
file). After following the apparently-relevant links, it just ends up
telling me how to use the "windows update" feature from the start/windows
button...never even gives me the option to download anything.
