When I download update KB2922229 it fails to instal with an error code of 80070490. I have tried this repeatedly without success and would appreciate help with this problem.

Close all programs, and then restart your computer.

Insert the Windows DVD into the computer's disk drive. Wait for Setup to start. If Setup doesn't start automatically, follow these steps:

Click Start, and then type Drive:\setup.exe in the search box, where Drive is the letter of your computer's DVD drive (for example, D:\setup.exe).


Yeah! When did you last get a Windows DVD with your computer...

click on start, search for services.msc, click on that. In the list find the Windows Update service. Right click and stop it. Go back to start and search cmd. Right click and open as administrator.

Use the following commands:

cd %windir%
ren SoftwareDistribution SDTemp
exit

go back into services.msc and start the windows update service again. Open up windows update and check for updates. Hope that helps :smile:
