Cannot download security updates for Windows Vista - Error Code 800700C1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The security updates for Windows Vista (KB2506212, KB2511455, KB2508429, KB 2479943, KB2393802, KB2412687, KB2510531, KB971029, KB2506223, KB2503658, KB2483185, etc.) will not install on my computer.  The Error Code is 800700C1.

    I have (1) reinstalled Windows Update, (2) removed %windir%\softwaredistribution\wuredir and tried to reinstall updates, and (3) scanned my computer (sfc/scannow).  Nothing has worked.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Mike

  • Hi,

    Please find another Windows Vista with the same version, search the three files and replace them. While In-place upgrade can resolve the issue in the end.

  • Please proceed like that:

    • Run chkdsk /r /f
    • Run sfc /scannow
    • Download and install Windows Update Readiness tool for Windows Vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821/
    • Reset Windows Update components
    • Disable all your security softwares and firewalls

    If this does not help, perform a repair install of your OS.

  • After I ran sfc /scannow, I reviewed the CBS.log file.  My computer has three corrupted files:  tcpmon.ini / settings.ini / smipi.dll

    Can I download non-corrupt files from microsoft's website?  If not, where is a safe place for me to download these files?

    Thanks

  • how did you review the log file?  i ran sfc as well and i cant review mine to see what files are corrupt.  im assuming the same ones as you.  I as well need a place to get these files.  I was just on the phone with this tech support guy, but of course he was foriegn and didnt really help me.  I need these updates because my itunes coincides with these updates.  Im not able to install itunes, i get the same error code from it as i do with my windows update.  Any good advice would be helpful.
