    Go to the MS download page. Then click on download history. then on the net
    1.1 update if it has the red balloon x then click on it, it may give you
    steps to take for your vista to correct the problem

    I found this:

    Windows Update error 80070002

    If you receive Windows Update error 80070002 while checking for updates, you
    need to remove the temporary update files that Windows uses to identify
    updates for your computer. To remove the temporary files, stop the Windows
    Update service, delete the temporary update files, restart the Windows Update
    service, and then try to check for Windows updates again.

    To stop the Windows Update service
    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

    Click to open Administrative Tools.

    Double-click Services. If you are prompted for an administrator password or
    confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Right-click the Windows Update service, and then click Stop.

    To delete temporary update files
    Click to open Computer.

    Double-click the local hard disk where Windows is installed, typically drive
    C.

    Double-click the Windows folder, and then double-click the
    SoftwareDistribution folder.

    Double-click the DataStore folder to open it, and then delete all files and
    folders in the folder. If you are prompted for an administrator password or
    confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Click the Back button. In the SoftwareDistribution folder, double-click the
    Download folder to open it, and then delete all files in the folder. If you
    are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password
    or provide confirmation.

    To restart the Windows Update service
    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

    Click to open Administrative Tools.

    Double-click Services. If you are prompted for an administrator password or
    confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Right-click the Windows Update service, and then click Start.

    If the problem persists after you have followed the steps above, see this
    Knowledge Base article on the Microsoft Help and Support website or go to the
    Windows Update Support Center website to request support by e‑mail.

    Note
    Deleting temporary update files will help solve the problem, but it will
    also delete the history in Windows Update. You can still see which updates
    are installed on your computer by going to Installed Updates:

    To see which updates are installed on the computer
    Click to open Installed Updates.

    Help and Support search term: WindowsUpdate_80070002

    and am in the process of trying it.

    I , too, am having the same issue - however I have been unable to delete the
    file and folder in the DataStore folder; it says the file is in use and thus
    denies access. I made sure the WU service was stopped - even checked
    Processes in Task manager to see if something obvious (to me) was running
    that was connected - I can't find anything. I WAS able to delete what was in
    the Downloads folder. Have now tried this whole process 3 times - help!

    Reboot into Safemode - F8 and you should be able to delete that folder.

    I can't fix the problem either, but I did solve your problem..I had left the
    Windows update screen open on the desktop. Once I clicked that off I could
    delete the two folders of stuff...but I can't update yet myself.

    I have been having exactly the same experience as all the previuos posting,
    and have tried the recc'd fixes 3 times. too.

    I think maybe the download file is bad, and am going to wait a day and try
    it again. The bummer is that the full record of my updates is now gone, and
    it still did not solve the problem

    Yep I tried this and had no problems installing it manually. Might be wise to
    close the window update box before doing this.
