Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista is available through Windows Update. So, I try to install it, but when it gets to 20% downloading it stops and shows error code 80070002. I followed Windows Help instructions but it did'nt work. I have downloaded all previous updates successfully and other applications can update with no problems. Input will be appreciated.

Extra facts:
I have an extremely slow internet connection (5-10 kbps):eek:
I have a Stone Age computer.:sigh:
My internet provider does not support peer to peer download.

The %WinDir%\WinSxS\Backup is a cache storage for backing up critical system files that are needed to start Windows, as implemented by WRP (Windows Resource Protection) system. The solution to fix the 80070002 error due to deleted %WinDir%\WinSxS\Backup is easy. Simply by recovering or re-creating the files under the “Backup” folder with just the filename will allow Windows Update and updates installation to work again.

download an execute the (winsxs-backup.bat) at the site.

which contains a series of commands to create empty (nul) files with correct filenames in the affected folder.

heres the link: http://depositfiles.com/en/files/2779067

dont go to microsoft for help, very complicated *

Please create a system restore point, B4 doing this. call it (TEST) creat a point on the drive that contains your OS. you will have a Vista logo on the drive that has Vista OS files. :wave:

I'm really thinking about popping back to XP, although I've went through this process several times and I usually regret popping back to XP after maybe 2 months of XP. I'm a victim of the "latestOSisTHEbest" craze.:4-dontkno

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem, and I mean exactly. Did you get it resolved, as I would much appreciate some help. My PC is new with Duo Core and 2Gig of RAM, and Vista Home Premium.

Thanks

Baytree, I had to reinstall from scratch, clean install. I could'nt do anything else.
BTW, I think it has something to do with the TuneUp cleaning utility.
