Error 0x80070002
Hi

I get automatic Windows Updates fine, and can also download them by going
into All Programme, Updades, but I can't access the MS Updates site.

When I go to there a message says "Checking if your computer has the latest
version of Windows updating software for use with the website…" followed by a
page with error 0x80070002.

Solutions in other threads don't work, including disabling Update & deleting
temporary update files, renaming a file "rename.bat" and using the Fixit
programme.

How else can I get into Updates?

--
TIA

Tim

RE: Error 0x80070002
When I didn't get a solution I went on the MS Forum and rec'd this from an MS
MVP. I didn't download the SRUT in the 2nd solution as it's for SP1 and I'm
on SP2 but bhe suggestions didn't work yet so I sent the files and am waiting
for a reply.

Dear Tim,

Thank you for contacting Microsoft Windows Update Support. My name is
Sabrina, and I am glad to work with you. For your reference, the case ID for
this service request is SRX1112861026.

From the problem description, I understand that it failed to search for the
updates with the error code 0x80070002. After renamed the SD folder, the
issue persists. Please feel free to let me know if I misunderstood.

This issue can be caused by many factors, such as:

1. Improper Internet Explorer settings.
2. Corrupted Windows Update temporary folder.
3. Corrupted system files

We will address some of the more common causes of this issue. It is
important that we attempt to connect to the Windows Update web site after
each step to confirm whether the resolution has worked. This will prevent us
from having to proceed with additional troubleshooting steps and provide us
with valuable feedback to further develop our support resolutions for you and
our future customers. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Step 1 Use the System File Checker (SFC) to scan system files
===============================================
The System File Checker tool gives an administrator the ability to scan all
protected files to verify their versions. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Click "Start", type "CMD" (without quotation marks) in the "Start Search"
box. Right click on the "CMD.exe" file, choose "Run as Administrator".
2. Copy and paste "SFC /Scannow" (without quotation marks) in the "Open"
box, and click "OK".

Note: There is a SPACE between "SFC" and "/Scannow", this command will take
several minutes to complete and may require access to the Windows
installation source files. If prompted to insert the CD, click "Continue"
each time it prompts.

Step 2 System Update Readiness Tool
==============================
This issue can occur due to corrupted system files. System resources, such
as file data, registry data, and even in-memory data, can develop
inconsistencies during the lifetime of the operating system. These
inconsistencies might be caused by various hardware failures or might be
caused by software issues. In some cases, these inconsistencies can affect
the Windows servicing store, and they can cause software updates not to work.
The System Update Readiness Tool tries to resolve these inconsistencies. When
the System Update Readiness Tool detects incorrect manifests, files, or
registry data, it might replace the incorrect data with a corrected version.

1. Please download the System Update Readiness Tool from the link below
according to your System Type:

System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista 32-bit
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista 64-bit
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

2. Double click on the downloaded file to run the System Update Readiness
Tool and restart the computer.

After that, let’s go to retry our update issue again. If the issue persists,
let’s go take the next step.

Step 3 Reset Internet Explorer settings
=============================
1. Please open Internet Explorer, click "Tools", and click "Internet Options".
2. Switch to the "Advanced" tab.
3. Refer to "Reset Internet Explorer Settings" section, and click "Reset".
4. Click "Close" when the resetting process is complete.
5. Uncheck the "Enable third-party browser extensions" option in the
Browsing box.
6. Click "Apply", click "OK".

For more information, please refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base
Article:

How to optimize or reset Internet Explorer 7
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936213/en-us

Now try Windows Update to see if the issue has been resolved.

If the issue persists, please help gather the following information for
further research.

How to capture a screenshot if an error message is received
===========================
1. Press the Print Screen key (PrtScn) on your keyboard.
2. Click "Start", type "mspaint" in the Search Bar and Press Enter.
3. In the Paint program, click "Edit", click "Paste". Then click "File", and
click "Save".
4. The "Save As" dialogue box will appear. Type a file name in the "File
name:" box, for example: "screenshot".
5. Make sure "JPEG (*.JPG;*.JPEG;*.JPE;*.JFIF)" is selected in the "Save as
type" box, click "Desktop" on the left pane and then click "Save".

Please send this saved JPEG file to my email account at
v-30sabs@mssupport.microsoft.com

How to collect the System Information
===========================
The System Information can provide us with more information about the
current status of the system. I would like to check it for you. Please send
it to me using the following steps:

1. Click "Start", type "MSINFO32" in the Search Bar and press Enter to start
System Information.
2. On the popup window, on the menu bar, click "File", and click "Save",
type a file name and then choose NFO as "Save as type", click "Desktop" on
the left pane, and click "Save".

Please send it as an attachment to v-30sabs@mssupport.microsoft.com. If the
file is too large to be sent, please right-click on the exported file, choose
"Send To" -> "Compressed (zipped) Folder", and then send the zip file to
v-30sabs@mssupport.microsoft.com for further research.

How to collect the WindowsUpdate.log file
===========================
1. Click "Start", type "WindowsUpdate.log" (without the quotes) in the
Search Bar and Press Enter. We will see a file named "WindowsUpdate.log"
2. Now click "File" and then click "Save As".
3. From the left panel, click "Desktop" and click "Save".

The file will be saved to your Desktop. Please send the file as an
attachment in an email to v-30sabs@mssupport.microsoft.com.

Note: When attaching files to emails, the process will vary depending on the
email application being used. Most applications will provide you with either
an "Attach" button or a Paper Clip Icon to click in order to attach a file.
After clicking this button/icon you must browse to the file you wish to
attach and select it by either double clicking it or clicking it once and
then clicking on the "Attach" button.

Please try my suggestions and let me know the results at your earliest
convenience. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let
me know.

I look forward to your response.

Best Regards,

Sabrina Shen

Re: Error 0x80070002
Sabrina Shen is NOT an MS MVP and apparently isn't aware that an updated
(Sept-09) version of CheckSUR tool was released earlier this week: It's
supported in Vista SP2 and may be able to resolve your 0x80070002 error.

Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for
Windows Server 2008, and for Windows 7 (September 2009)
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=947821

Vista 32-bit:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...f-04d43fa7b293

Vista 64-bit:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...f-0feefc7ff064

As posted by my colleague MowGreen:

<QP>
Please *note* that it is a 97 MB download.

Once the download completes close all open programs and browsers.

Now run Windows6.0-KB947821-v5-x86.msu by double left clicking on it as you
would an .exe file. It will take some time to run. When it's done, the error
should be resolved. If not, open the log that CheckSUR created located at

WINDOWS\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log <=here

Copy and paste it contents into a reply to this thread.

Re: Error 0x80070002
To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you quote all of the previous
message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.

I assume you're attempting to "access the MS Updates site" via Start |
Settings | Control Panel | Windows Update | In the left-hand menu, click on
"Check for updates" and NOT via http://updates.microsoft.com.

When (date & time) did you contact MS Windows Update Support and open
support case SRX1112861026?

Moving on...

Let's see if installing the newly-updated version of Windows Update Agent
manually resolves your problem.

[You may want to PRINT these instructions]

1. Assuming Vista 32-bit, right-click on the following link and SAVE the
download to your desktop, do not RUN it! =>
http://download.windowsupdate.com/wi...gent30-x86.exe

2. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon the the
taskbar).

3. Right click on the file you saved in #1 above
(windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe) and select "Run as Administrator" to install
the updated version. Follow all prompts.

4. Test.

Re: Error 0x80070002
Hi

I installed the software which changed the download dialogue box to separate
screens for Important and Optional updates.

I can also still get to this box via Start, All Progs, Windows Updates, and
still download the updates, but when I go to the MS Home Page, Security &
Updates, Windows Updates, a page appears that says it is checking if I have
the right software and then the same error.

TIA

Tim

Re: Error 0x80070002
I thought that might be the case. Unlike WinXP, you CANNOT run a manual
check for updates via http://update.microsoft.com, only from within Vista
itself.

IOW everything's OK.
