    I get the error code 80070020 when installing KB968930 and KB2463332. Install other updates.  Automatic Fixer MS says this update should be fixed, says he has set when I run, but nothing changes.  Vista Home premium 32-bit, service pack 2.  Update does not work in safe mode.

    These errors very strongly suggest that you see the effects of a hijackware infection.

    Instead you send on what could turn out to be a proverbial 'wild goose chase', I would recommend that you contact the Security Support for the MS consumer on all this.

    Visit the Microsoft Solution Center and antivirus security for resources and tools to keep your PC safe and healthy.

    If you have problems with the installation of the update itself, visit the Microsoft Update Support for resources and tools to keep your PC updated with the latest updates.

    Hi Pach,

    This problem can occur if a program interferes with the automatic update process. For example, using the real-time scanning antivirus programs may interfere with the automatic update process.

    Method 1: Download and install the update manually and see if it helps.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-US/Download/details.aspx?ID=19362

    Method 2: Perform the steps from the link below and see if it helps.
