Windows Upgrade and fixit RRS feed

  • Question

  • This PC has Vista Home Basic x86. A while ago it stopped auto-updating, and for the past few days I've been trying to fix this but am going around in circles.

    Windows Update gives Error(s) found: Code 80070490 ... unknown error.
    Running the Vista SP2 download gives Error: ERROR_NOT_FOUND(0x80070490)

    The System Update Readiness Tool went fine.

    I have uninstalled .NET Framework and installed the latest version 4.0.30319.1.

    The FixitCenter_Run program says it requires .NET v4.0.30319 which is already installed.

    I have also tried running two .msu files but get the error "The update does not apply to your system".

    Please let me know how I can proceed, regards Frazer.
