    So is there a final word on this error for those of us who have repeated the
    microsoft "suggested fix" of stopping the service and manually clearing it's
    data in hopes that a new download may be succesful (that's a work around...
    not a fix.... and a cludgy one in my book)... and continue to have failures?

    regedit anyone?

    same problem here. Glad to know I'm not alone.
    Tried all the fixes I could through help and support pages - yeah,
    definitely cluges, and they didn't work. Gave up when I reached "access
    denied" while precisely following instructions, and decided to look here for
    help instead.

    I am having this problem as well for about 3 weeks now and got only one
    single email from Bill with a copy of the text in the Vista help files. No
    further reaction since. :-( I have tried some regedits as well but with no
    success. I have forgotten from where I got the regidit advice but I think it
    was B.G. as well.
    Btw. They (MS) told me to re-install my windows completely! arrgg...

    Reinstalling Windows won't necessarily solve the problem - I tried that, but
    the same SEVEN updates I can't install still refused to work.

    I'm a bit "antsy" about deleting or renaming folders in my operating system,
    and even more "antsy" about reloading my Vista OS, all to correct a problem
    that was caused by Microsoft, i.e., this text at - CAUSE - This problem occurs when
    some files in the update are missing, even though the update is downloaded
    and extracted successfully, when referring to receipt of an 80070002 error

    Surely there must be an easier method to "fix" this problem when an update
    fails, maybe issuing the update with another name...

    As you have already realized, I'm not "computer literate," but trying to

    I hit a couple of issues
    1. The install directory wasn't there - I suspect I messed it up while
    trying to follow microsofts fixes. I tried the automatic update again, and
    after it had failed the directory was there.
    2. Vista complained that the application was from an unknown source, but the
    details button said it was microsoft. Disturbing...
    3. After restart, the UpdateUtil application is blocked - still not sure if
    I'm meant to unblock it.
    4. I still had the updates ready to install message, but they installed okay.

    Any advice on the UpdateUtil application? Should I unblock it?

    results as everyone else......nothing!
