    YES! Excellent! This worked for me, although the correct version is to do
    a cd \ first to get to the root of your windows drive, and then the correct
    syntax is:

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:

    Thanks a lot for your advice, I was *THIS* close to reinstalling my laptop
    from scratch!

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for the responding and correction.
    You need to specify "true" in the arguments and can specify the path like
    "C:\". Sorry for the typo.
    The updated instructions are below

    1. Open an Administrator command prompt by right clicking on Start -> All
    Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt and selecting "Run as
    Administrator" and clicking "Allow" for the elevation prompt
    2. In the command prompt, type the command below
    fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\
    (This assumes that C: is the drive in which Vista is installed. If it is
    installed on another drive like D:, please change the drive letter
    appropriately)
    3. Reboot the machine

    If it resolves the problems for others, please let me know.

    This is the resolution only for 8007000b error while installing updates on
    Vista. This doesn’t apply for other OS like Windows XP SP2 etc

    Absolutely fantastic Sudheer!! Works a treat! I have installed all the
    updates with no problems!

    However I'm not so sure that the Windows Features are installing correctly,
    as it errors after a long time with the progress bar at almost 100%, saying
    that not all features were installed correctly.

    I tried this suggestion (fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\), but kept
    getting an error that "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." I
    tried to run ScanDisk, but it would not run immediately and didn't seem to
    successfully schedule the scan for reboot. The time to boot seemed to be the
    same after selecting "schedule scan" and restarting - and I did not get any
    other signs that the scan was run (with or without finding and fixing errors).

    When I tried just "fsutil resource setautoreset true c:" (without the
    backslash at the end - just to see if it made a difference), it gave me the
    error "The specified directory does not contain a resource manager."

    I did a fresh install of Vista Ultimate - not an upgrade.

    Any suggestions for a next step? I tried to reinstall Norton System Works
    2006 to help diagnose any possible disk problem (which didn't show up before
    installing Vista, but could have been laying in wait for the right
    opportunity to pounce <grin>), but they don't have a Vista-compatible version
    of that yet.

    Finally figured it out. There *were* some problems with the hard drive -
    index entries that were corrupt or missing. This was preventing me from
    having chkdsk start on reboot. I finally booted from the setup DVD, went to
    the DOS prompt, and ran chkdsk manually from there. After that I was able to
    use the fsutil noted in the thread above, and now the updater is working fine.

    Whew!

    Thanks. I thought here we go, new computer new problems. But did exactly as
    Kim suggested below, first:

    cd\

    then hit the enter key, followed by;

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:

    Worked a treat, all updates now downloaded and installed.

    I tried to do what you said but it is not working.

    This is exactly what my command prompt looks like:

    Microsoft Windows Version [Version 6.0.6000]
    Copyright <c> 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

    C:\Users\Landislao>cd\

    C:\>fsutil resource setautoreset true c:

    WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

    Hi,

    I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer and I keep getting an
    error message every time I try to update. The update is always the same:
    KB930857, and the error code is also the same: 8007007B. Since this started
    happening, I can't download any other update(s).

    Can anyone help me, please?? I tried everything in this post, but nothing
    worked.

    Hi,
    I have tried several things to fix the error code 8007000B, including your
    instruction below, however I still have the same problem when looking for
    updates. I also renamed the SoftwareDistributor file, recommended by others
    and removed some components in the regedit. This acutally solved the error
    code 8000ffff. But I then got error code 8007000B as a replacement. Is there
    anything else I can try?? What could be the problem? This is really driving
    me crazy.. Thanks a lot.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply. I have tried it again (the command you write below)
    but it still doesn't work. I still get error code 8007000B. Do you know what
    else I can do? Is there something else I should do, close down antivirus
    software for example? Thanks a lot.

    Did you manage in the end? Or still having this problem? I do, and I don't
    know what else I should do. Tried everything I think. Still get 8007000B. If
    you can help I'd be grateful. Thanks.

    Hi everyone. I've been having this problem with updates for a month. I can
    download defender etc., but not Media & Vista updates. I have tried EVERY
    suggestion going after reading all the threads & I still cannot download
    updates.

    The last person wanting help was in April & there's no message as to whether
    it was solved by him/her.

    Does anyone else know what to do apart from a clean install of Vista {which
    I don't really want to do}

    Most days I wish I'd never bothered with Vista as it has created more
    problems than XP,then, I think of what I've paid to upgrade & I am depressed.

  18. Did you search for the code with a 0x prefix too?

    BTW obviously you have *not* "tried EVERY suggestion"
    or you would be providing a better symptom description... ; }

    Hi. Thank you for your reply. I'll be honest, I'm NOT a PC whizz kid, but I'm
    trying to learn. I've had this problem before with updates & solved it by
    doing the suggestions everyone else has tried,but this time I have looked
    everywhere for a solution. The "sympton" is that at the start there were 4
    updates. One for Defender, one driver (Nvidia),one for Windows Media & one
    for Vista Update.

    The driver & defender downloaded & installed fine, but the remaining two
    downloaded but would not install.

    I have tried EVERY solution I have seen on various forums and most of them
    repeat what is said on this thread.

    I have searched through my pc to see if there is anything wrong with the
    media player etc.,but nothing comes to light. I have done virus &
    anti-spyware scans & nothing comes to light. I've done disk clean at the
    start of boot up & it came up 100% ok. (But there must be something wrong
    with that, otherwise updates would install).

    I have looked at the last "solution" again doing stand alone update, but it
    will not install.

    Nothing crops up on my pc to say there is a file error somewhere, but
    obviously there must be, but where can I find the root of the "sympton" if
    everything is telling me its ok. Even Event Viewer does not say anything, but
    as I said at the start, I'm not a pc whizzkid.

    can anyone else who has had similarproblem help to solve it please?

    Hi,
    I had the same problem, for months now, looking for solutions, doing all the
    things that were suggested, but still it didn't work. Yesterday I have
    reinstalled Vista and then finally all 37 (!!!) updates could be installed.
    So I would suggest you do the same, it saves probably more time then looking
    for solutions..

    Cheers,
    Mireille
