  • Error message when you try to update Windows Vista - error attest 80070641 / 641

    I guess that many people have had this problem, all of a sudden.

    When you try to do updates on May 9, 2012, there were several updates available for me (23 in total).  I have windows updated put in place to notify me when updates are available (always have it) so I can see what will be installed (and not installed) on my machine.  He 11 successfully installed the updates and 12 in vain.  I try whenever I turn on my computer to update the 12 failed and failed in each attempt.

    For the record, I tried several remedies posted on this forum nothing is done.

    Attach it to the tool = failure
    System File Check = failure
    Update system = failure analysis tool
    Windows Update Agent = failure
    Stop the service (wuauserv), empty folder to update windows (C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download) files = failure
    Tried to install the other updates separate security updates = failure
    Tried to install other updates separate updates security = failure
    Other suggestions = failure

    I just do a fresh install of Vista 32 bit (with service pack 2) on a SSD to return the 15/03/2012. I update my registry every 2 to 3 weeks.  The last program that I've updated was Adobe's Flash plugin on 04/05/2012.  Before that, it was an update to AnyDVD is 30/04/2012.  The last program that I installed was a kit of expansion for the Sims 3 on 19/04/2012.

    This problem just happened out of the blue.  Never had any problems with updates like this before until 09/05/2012.

    Here's some of my windows update log file. Looks like I only selected 4 security updates and 8 others are not selected on the left.

    See that this related thread (in particular the JanetD post which includes what told him IOlo support)-online http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-windows_update/getting-error-codes-641-and-80070641-when-trying/6022df1d-7914-4e3e-ac5e-dbef07df433c

    3 IMPORTANT! -Online turn on Windows Firewall immediately after the restart.

    4. right click on the file that you saved in step #1 above, and then select run as administrator.  DO TAP not your keyboard until the race ends, then restart.

    NB: Now you're "working without a net": no to ANYTHING else online (e.g., navigation, reading e-mail, chat) until you have completed steps #5 to #7 below!
