  2. If you get this message: “Windows Update Error 80070641“ it means that your
    “Windows Installer†service is not enabled or not started.

    To fix this:


    Click Start
    Click on the Control Panel
    Click on System And Maintenance
    Click on Administrative Tools
    Click on Services
    (Give your user account control password or confirmation)
    Make sure the service called Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is on/started.

    Also make sure the Windows Installer Service is on/started.

    If their not started, Right Click on the Service
    Click on Properties
    Under the general tab, make sure the start up type is “Automaticâ€
    Click OK in the left hand pane of the services window, where it describes
    the service, click start.

    You’ll have to do the above steps for both services if neither of them are
    running.

    After you are finished with both:

    Restart Your computer.

    After the computer reboots.

    Try to install the updates again and if it doesn’t work, check to make sure
    the error message you received it the correct one.

    Windows has quite a few and sometimes they can be deceiving.

    This error is usually caused by advanced users tweaking their settings.
