Windows Update Error Code 80073701 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What the devil is Error Code 80073701 and why does it come up every time I try to update my Windows Vista Home Premium system? How do I get rid of the damned thing? This has been an ongoing problem since Sept of 2009. I just tried to update by installing these two bozos:

    Security Update for Winows Vista for X-64 based systems dated 9-8-2009

    Update for Windows Mail Junk Filter for X-64 based systems dated 1-12-2010

    I keep trying and trying and all I ever get is Code 80073701. Windows Update encountered an unknown error. I click on Get help with this error and it's all ____ information that does not work dammit! Can anyone here help me or will you abandon me like everyone else has? Thanks I hope- keimanzero in Brookhaven PA-USA
