Error Code 80070426
Anyone know how to fix this or what it means? I have Vista. Windows keeps
telling me I should update, but this error will pop up and said that it is
unable to update.
Thanks

Re: Error Code 80070426
0x80070426 - ERROR_SERVICE_NOT_ACTIVE

Translation: One or more of the services Automatic Updates needs to do its
job is not active (running; enabled). This is most frequently due to a
hijackware infection.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?
