    Vista keeps updating and configuring and rebooting all the time.
    It doesn't succeed, and the error code 80071A2C is nowhere to be found at
    Microsoft support nor Google.
    I've uninstalled AVG, switched off administrator settings etc, but it still
    doesn't work.

    What can I do now?

  2. Hi Jelle,

    The error code has two parts:

    8007 means that this is a COM+ Error.

    0x1A2C (or 6700, in decimal) is a standard Windows error defined in

    # The transaction handle associated with this operation is
    # not valid.

    So, a COM Component is trying to perform a transaction and getting an
    invalid transaction handle (ie, an ID number for the specific transaction).

    But why this is happening, and how you go about fixing it, I regret I don't
    know. Hope it helps a little bit, anyway.

    Thanks Andrew,
    I can search for your 'translation' now and maybe find more.

    Wehn computer boots up before the windows vista bar start gliding press the f8 key it should bring up a menu

    select Repair Computer
    When it is finished loading
    select Restore computer to an earlier point
    that will bring up another menu after it is done loading
    select a system restore point that doesnt have anything saying update in it
    will take awhile to restore, but afterwards system should be fine
    since microsoft pulled the update it should be fine to receive future updates.
