    I am having a problem downloading a specific update for my computer.
    Every time the update installer runs, it keep on coming up with an error
    code (643)
    I have followed all the suggestion that windows helper has given me, and
    nothing avails. The message reads as follows.

    (KB929729)

    Installation date: ‎7/‎11/‎2007 1:11 AM

    Installation status: Failed

    Error details: Code 643

    Update type: Important

    I am having the same issue. Hopefully this can be rectified in a short time.
    I keep getting notified that I must download this file.and when I try I get
    the 643 error code, as well.

    I'm having the same problem - how can you have an installation error with a
    security update ?

    I have seven failed updates from today (running Vista Ultimate) - I looked
    into the logs and found the security update relating to KB935807 is the
    update that fails, with the remaining updates not installing because
    KB935807 failed. This update involves security changes to the windows
    firewall. The error I'm seeing in the Security Centre is 80070002, which
    apparently relates to missing files in the downloaded update. I have
    followed all the steps suggested, but to no avail. Is this whats happening
    to you?

    Any one else having this problem?

    Nope - I too have Ultimate, but all updates have downloaded and installed
    other than the .Net update, which downloads but does not install - error
    message 643 given

    Microsoft needs to address that this is an issue. I've tried uninstalling my
    virus software, clearing my downloaded temp files, and attempted to reinstall
    more times than I care to mention.

    MS, please HELP!

    Same here, I don't know if they look at these posts. Where would we report
    this?

    It would be quite a shame if the people we buy Operating Systems from chose
    to disregard a problem which is affecting thousands of people. I personally
    paid for this upgrade to Vista and it bothers me to think the money just went
    in Mr. Gates' pocket. I hope a technician can come along and assist us in
    resolving this annoying problem.

    I don't know if this helps at all, but I found this:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931212

    I've seen several issues posted here; to address some of the other ones,
    also ensure that the following directory exists (if it doesn't, create it):
    %WINDIR%\System32\LogFiles\Firewall

    Thanks all!

    This is very frustrating. Kind of makes you wish you had kept XP. :/
