    I have Windows XP and SP2 w/IE7 and when I am trying to check for updates I
    get Error Code 8007000B. I do not have no Vista or Vista Premium. Help! This
    is so frustrating!

    If you're running a third-party firewall, disable it temporarily and enable
    the Windows Firewall.

    If you connect via a router, connect directly to the modem.

    Tip: Temporarily disable real-time protection by your anti-virus and/or
    anti-spyware applications (e.g., CounterSpy, Spysweeper, Spybot, AVG
    Anti-Spyware) and/or any third-party firewall (e.g., ZA) before attempting
    to install the update(s

    Start a free Windows Update support incident request:

    An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

    As usual the error code only gives broad hints about what is wrong.
    You can guess about its meaning or look for the context in which it is given
    in the logs that the install attempt will have created or added to.

    As PA Bear has indicated one reasonable interpretation of the code
    given the above general meaning would be that the either the downloaded
    update executable or its contents have been corrupted somehow by security
    programs. So, the suggestion under that hypothesis is to remove all likely
    sources of such corruption and try both the download and install again.
    You could also try an alternate source of download by downloading the update
    manually and avoiding WU or AU entirely.

    Good luck
