    I reinstalled Windows XP Home over my existing XP Home installation, but I
    used another XP CD because the one I own was unable to be accessed by my CD
    drive. I registered the second installation with my original XP's product key
    number. Everything works fine but when I use Windows Update I get this error
    [Error number: 0x80070420]

    Please help me understand what the problem is. Thanks.
