From: Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista,
for Windows Server 2008, and for Windows 7
" The following table lists error messages that you might receive when
you try to install a software update. These errors might be caused by a
system irregularity that the System Update Readiness Tool might be able
to resolve. However, the tool might be unable to fix all instances in
which these errors occur. "
The component store is in an inconsistent state.
@ marinecorpwife ... suggest you download and save the Windows Update
Readiness Tool (CheckSUR) -
For Vista and Windows 7 x86 [32bit]
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 <--- this log
Copy and paste it's contents into your next post, please.
