    0x80070490 - ERROR_NOT_FOUND
    Corrupted System File; Need to perform an in-place upgrade or reinstall of
    the OS.

    Ignore the title : Some Windows Vista functions may not work, or Windows
    Vista may stop responding
    Tells you about SFC

    A repair install is the usual solution of SFC /Scannow doesn't work.

    You receive a "0x80070490" error code when you use Windows Update or
    Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates

    I hope this is enough to get you on the right road for nºw.

    Let us know how it works ºut.
