This article may be of some help. There is a command prompt command that will rebuild the WMI repository. It may fix your issue.

I, rebuilt the repository, uninstalled Microsoft Security Essentials, turned of UAC (after performing all the above steps) - so I guess you would you uninstalled any Virus Protection, installed the SP2 Update Manually - it worked!!!!

In all likelihood, this error is caused by another program that is preventing your SP2 from installing. The following article may help:

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

I am trying to install SP1 on Window vista but error 0x80070490 keeps coming up and not letting me install the service pack.


Hi mattnmassey,

This is one of SEVERAL notorious problems brought to you by the eternal headache that is known as Windows Vista. This is a complicated problem, one without a definitive solution, because there are multiple reasons why it happens.

Do you have Vista 32-bit, or Vista 64bit? Post that information here, and once I know which version of the OS you're using, I'll be able to advise you further.

The BAD news is, there is NO simple "one-click " solution to this. You'll have to download and install a 70+ MB patch file as a FIRST step, but I need to know if you have Vista 32 or Vista 64 before we can even begin this process.

I went through this process in May of 2010 when upgrading a Vista system for a client; in all the years I've repaired PCs, this fix was a nightmare. Fixing this problem can take HOURS, with no promise of actually getting SP1 to install. MANY people choose to wipe the HDD and do a clean install of Vista simply because they don't want to spend the time it takes to get this done. I've been repairing PCs since 1993; I cut my teeth on PC-DOS, and to be honest, I GREATLY prefer Linux over ANY Microsoft operating system, but I'm willing to give this a shot if you are.

Keep in mind that it is very possible that NOTHING we do will fix this problem; sometimes you simply have to start with a clean slate in order to get Vista SP1 and SP2 installed, but I do hope you'll make the effort to install the System Update Readiness Tool BEFORE you make a decision about wiping the hard drive.

Tell us which version of Vista you have (32- or 64-bit), and we'll work from there.

I'm trying to upgrade from 64-bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7. When I run the installation disk, I'm getting the following error message, which appears to be contradictory in my opinion:...


I have seen this type of problem before, the only real way around it is to install a fresh copy of windows 7 not to upgrade, you will receive a message that asks you if you want to keep the previous windows in a folder called old windows, from there you will be able to access all your old files and programs, be aware though some programs may not work on windows 7, and you may need to have updated drivers for the systems peripherals. So when you run the windows 7 disk choose clean install and go from there. i hope this helps

Epson stylus photo r340 can't connect!


It shows on Epson's website that it supports Windows Vista 32-bit but it did not tell if it support SP2. It only means that it doesn't since you are encountering error on your computer.

Try to install it on another computer that is running Vista 32-bit SP1. If it works then it only means that the drivers are working but not compatible with Vista 32-bit SP2 yet.

Hope this helps. Thank you and goodluck on your troubleshooting.

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.
