    I have been unable to do any updates since I got my new computer with Vista
    Basic. I continually get the 80070422 error. I have gone into
    Administrative Tools and checked Properties under Windows Update. At first
    Automatic (Delayed) was selected, and I changed that to Automatic. The
    Service status was already on Started. However, I still cannot do any
    updates and still get the above error message.

    Your Error # changed is it 80070422 or 80070433

    Check the Dependency Tab on either of the above Services - It appears
    something is missing from the service (80070433 error). Try to determine
    what is missing.

    To register the Wuaueng.dll file, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 Wuaueng.dll, and then click OK.
    2. When you receive the following message, click OK:
    DllRegisterServer in Wuaueng.dll succeeded.

    Retry installation

    In almost all cases user has probably disabled BITS service incorrectly
    thinking that it would improve the computer perfomance.

    I recently upgraded to the Home Basic Vista version and am experiencing
    issues as well.

    I checked my update log and found Error 1603 - Permissions
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834484

    I renamed my software distribution folder and retried updating with no
    success. This is with the .NetFramework update. I used the cleaning tool to
    remove it, reinstalled NetFramework 1.1 and the update manually. Still
    windows update reappeared twice with the same update and both times
    Successful was listed after I clicked install - It detected the update yet,
    it showed again with the same update and today when I checked, that update is
    no longer listed.

    This may possibly what is happening if you've upgraded XP to Vista system as
    I have. Update "detects" but it may take a couple of times for it to do so.

    I found that the service "Windows Modules Installer" had been stopped and disabled. I had never gone into my services and stopped it so I assume another program did. However, I do not see that listed in the dependencies for Windows Updates or visa versa? As soon as I turned it on, my updates came back on.

    The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
    </cmd_output>


    Look for some context in your logs to figure out *which* service cannot be started? ; }

    In case Gistcheckin's guess for the OP was correct. You could also try using bitsadmin
    (in a cmd window) to both check the status of your BITS service and optionally repair it.

    Note that another service being disabled was identified as the problem cause
    by another poster to this ancient thread.


    Good luck

    Dear all,

    Go to Start. Type 'msconfig' > then go to 'services'. Be sure that all
    Micorosoft services are checked in. Then press OK. Your problem will
    disappear. I have fixed the problem so simply.
