Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Receive error code 80070490
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.
