According to what I am seeing on forum pages, a removal of NET 2.0, then a reboot, might help your problem. Before re-installing NET 2.0 make sure the problem is not recurring. there were other instructions also but I will try to keep this simple for the time being.

Error code 80070490

Here is something you can try:

If this does not resolve the issue. Most people are forced to back up their data and format and resinstall.

Since I have no info about your computer, I can't tell if your using a genuine copy of windows or not. If your not, this error is not unlikely as you will have to purchase and re validate your windows cd key.

If you are using genuine copy of windows. It seems something went wrong and might have to reinstall.

Unable to check for updates

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's NOT an immediate process. See: 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.
