Windows update error 80070002 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been getting the Windows update error 80070002 for over a year now. I have tried the fix listed  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows-vista/Windows-Update-error-80070002 numerous times and I would like to finally be able to update my operating system. I have also tried to run the fixit utility listed http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910336 It will not install. It stops while trying to install PowerShell giving me the following message: Fix it troubleshooting cannot continue because an error occurred. We're sorry, but Powershell failed to install. Please try again later.
    Nothing I have tried has managed to fix this error message. Does anyone have any solutions that I have not previously tried?
    Thank you.
