I can't get updates since SP2 installation and update of the Windows Update Agent.

I have Vista Home Premium 64-bit.  I have done 3 installs clean for several days and each time I install SP2 and update the Windows Update Agent I can't get updates.  When I click search for updates, it just keeps looking for hours and hours and never stops looking.  I tried several solutions on the internet, including those found here.  Of course, the first thing I did was run the Fixit of Windows Update tool.  He could not solve any problems found.  He gave the error code 0 x 80070005.  I installed the SubInAcl.exe and run several different command text and a text of the batch.  The batch text did nothing.  The texts of order had errors of syntax and a file, he could not access.  I ran the System File Checker, and it finds errors, it could not fix.  I just did a clean install on this machine 6 or 8 months ago because I was going to get rid of the computer, so when I put in place I used the username user.  I came across no problem at all when I installed the operating system and update everything.  Since then, I decided to keep the computer, so I wanted to have it in my name.  As I said, this is my 3rd try.  I am willing to give.  Maybe someone here can help.

I tried two clean installs and I get the same thing.  Once I have installed SP2 and the new Agent update, I can't get more updates.  It keeps only the search for hours without results or error messages.  I tried all of the suggestions I found on the internet, but nothing works.  I get always the same error code 0x80070005, when I run the Fixit of Windows Update tool.  There must be a way to solve this problem.  Why I was able to do a clean install of 6 or 8 months without any problems, but now I can't.  It makes no sense at all.  I really hope someone who knows the answer reads this.

I finally got it!  I tried two other proposed solutions, then I ran the System File Checker, which is no problem, then I ran Check Disk.  Check disk found and repaired files in the file system of BITS among others.  After that, I'm now completely up to date with Windows Update.  I was ready to give up.  I'm glad I did not.  For anyone else having similar problems, don't give up, the answer is there.

  • Why Windows backup all files to predefined backup weekly? How can I get to only add additions and changes to the backup files?

    I back up my files to an external hard drive.  Rather than simply add changes or additions, it adds all the files each time, causing the hard drive fills up quickly.  This problem was not always present; It began less than a year ago, so I wonder if it was caused by an update.

  • I have never seen flex to sell... How can I get a copy of it and what is the difference between she and flash?


    I heard great stuff about flex, but I've never seen for sale. I read that it's better for real-time Flash programs. I don't know if it of true or not. What flex is that flash is not and how the flex language better than the flash language? Or am I totally confused and flex is as an add-on to Flash? any guidance would be really appreciated. I'm working on something oriented object that needs to be in real time, I'm looking for the best program that offers that.

    I am fairly new to this also and all these words killed me for my first few weeks in this area, but I have my feet under me now.

    Flex is an Open Source SDK provided by Adobe (formerly Macromedia). It used to be something they sold, but they opensourced there, Hooray!

    Flash is the set of APIs that begin with flash.*, and you can fully create animations flash with just the standard flash API.

    Flex comes with a ton of very useful components, features and functionality based on the flash. You should definitely download and become familiar with flex.

    The flex api beginning with mx.*

    Flex also offers the possibility to compile the MXML documents in flash. MXML documents make it very easy to build Flash, complete with animations, customizations, etc. in a HTML format. Take a look at the Component Explorer link below and you will see the MXML generated for the components of the example. You can copy and paste this MXML (looking at simple stuff huh?) and get an app to work you can develop and play with as you learn.

    Here are some useful links to help you move in the right direction:

    A good list of links to Flex:

  • can [4820tg] I replace my hard drive and always keep the Windows license?

    Hey! A quick question, on an older laptop that is still alive.

    Acer Aspire 4820TG

    Windows 7 family

    Can I replace the hard drive and install Windows again?

    I mean, I burned the recovery CD or software any Acer asked when the computer was new. Those can be used to install Windows if I replace the current hard drive?

    If so, how does the license? I guess that they can not be used on another computer, but I can reinstall all I want on this one?

    Thanks in advance!

    And this laptop is awesome. Runs strong through its 4th year and the battery still pumps on ~ 4-5 hours by being careful with the use. Heh, the other parts are probably die slowly, including the hard drive.


    Yes to all your questions.

    You must use the recovery media that you have created, just check that they are still ok or create a new one, just in case where.

    on the license, it's like SLIC table BIOS, so you don't need to enter a serial number and your windows will be activated automatically.
