Vista Business Update Not working
OK - first things first.

WinVista Business, 32 bit. Purpose built machine. All new driver installed. Also, running Viper anti-virus (I have it turned off during updates.) I have googled every thing that I can find on error code: "WindowsUpdate_80070002" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"

I've deleted the folders after having stopped the service, etc. I have .NET framework 1.1 on my machine (Maybe I need the others?) but update will not work.

On the update site, it says I need to install Update but when I select continue, that fails as well.

In the past updates have installed correctly, but now nothing is working correctly.

As you can imagine my frustration meter is maxed out. I could sure use some advice here.

BTW, when I run my Belarc Advisor, it now reports the following are missing:

Q921598 - Important
Q951338 - Important
Q951546 - Important
Q951596 - Important
Q951944 - Important
Q953404 - Important
Q954326 - Critical
Q954478 - Important

As I said, I'm at a complete loss as to what to do.

Re: Vista Business Update Not working
Hi,

I've had a similar error when reconfiguring Windows Updates - and there was no fix.

Now, I don't know if this will help you, but when experimenting with this, I stopped all internet traffic after startup. So when updates tried to access the net, I pulled the connection - whether via firewall or manually shouldn't matter - and after a couple of minutes, when all programs complained about the lack of connectivity, I put the connection back. All of a sudden, updates came alive again and I could configure it.

If your problem is the same as mine you're in luck - if it's different, just ask around some more and carry on fiddling. Sometimes the strangest things help.

Cheers
