If your copy of Vista is on a DVD (rather than preinstalled) some people have had success installing the DVD disc and choosing Upgrade (NOT Install...that will WIPE your existing system!) Somehow the Upgrade process corrects the corruption that creates your problem BUT plan on a long siege...it's NOT an immediate process. See:http://www.vistaheads.com/forums/microsoft-public-windowsupdate/180888-re-error-code-80070490-a.html and good luck!

If your copy is pre-installed, my best suggestion is to call the manufacturer of your PC, HP or Dell or Gateway Support and drive THEM nuts with it...Microsoft isn't too great at fixing it either, from reports I've read.

I am continuing to recieve Windows update error 9C48 and I am unable to fix error


Hello,
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=23332
Instructions:
  1. Uninstall IE9, if you already have it installed, and restart the computer.
  2. Download the installer.
  3. Disconnect from the internet. This is important because the installer attempts to download the latest, bad binaries from Windows Update.
  4. Let the install finish, and restart.
  5. Reconnect to the internet and check Windows Update. If all went well, you should be able to see the Cumulative Update for IE9, instead of IE9 itself.
Thanks

Receive error code 0xc 0000135


Your operating system may need microsoft .Net framework. Check windows update. When it loads do not run Express, click on Custom. Download
.Net framework in order if possible. Continue the same untill Custom no longer shows updates for .Net framework.
Here is a microsoft link for error 0xc0000135. http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=error+0xc0000135
