  2. does anyone know you're full windows version or what update(s) you're trying
    to install?

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

    ps: the error usually indicates a hijackware-infested machine

  3. If my system has been hijacked also, I'm dissapointed Windows Live One Care
    didn't prevent it!

    Unfortunately nothing is 100%, no anti virus, firewall etc
    There are no guarantees.

  6. I've used the MS Malicious Software Removeal Tool with no faults found. I've
    also tried the Vista reinstall "upgrade" option but in the end the upgrade
    option was denied. I am not looking forward to a new install.
