error code 80070017 during update install

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by scootin04SVTF, Dec 25, 2008.

  1. Windows Vista Ultimate 64 w/SP1

    fresh install on a brand new system...

    I just keep getting this error.. not on everything, but pretty much on any
    "update for windows Vista for x64 - based systems", including the security
    updates. Windows Defender updates fine. I'm also getting similar issues
    with installing just regular programs. It won't even let me install the
    firmware to allow me to watch blue ray movies (yes I have a blue ray capable
    player - 2 of them)...

    0x80070017 - ERROR_CRC Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

    Files may be corrupt or missing.

    Check Disk or Chkdsk is disk error checking in VISTA. It can be used to
    check for corruption and possibly repair errors and bad sectors on the hard
    drive.

    Run SFC /SCANNOW
    System File Checker (SFC) checks that all Vista files are where they should
    be and that they are uncorrupted.
    WHY: You want to ensure that core operating system files have not been
    damaged or modified.
