Copied яesponse from TaurArian [MVP] -

0x80070490 - ERROR_NOT_FOUND
Corrupted System File; Need to perform an in-place upgrade or reinstall of
the OS.

Ignore the title : Some Windows Vista functions may not work, or Windows
Vista may stop responding
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833>
Tells you about SFC

A repair install is the usual solution of SFC /Scannow doesn't work.

You receive a "0x80070490" error code when you use Windows Update or
Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates
