Dead Rising 2 "cannot download the update" Error code: 0X800700B7
I popped onto Dead Rising 2 ready to play the game again, until I get a request for an update. I enthusiastically click Yes, and the update fails to download. I can no longer play the game.
I have tried reinstalling Games For Windows Live, restarting the computer to no avail. I refuse to uninstall Dead Rising 2 since I do not want to wait five and a half hours just for it to not work all over again.
Ive looked at the FAQ on how to fix this and it seems the one and only solution did nothing to help. Any ideas?

I suggest you to put the computer in clean boot state and check if that helps.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

I appreciate the answer above - I'm just baffled that in this day and age, I can't simply buy a PC game, pop it in my PC and it just works. I'm now 4 hours into this effort to get this freakin game to work. I don't see the folder you reference above - likely it's hidden area. Microsoft has lost its way - things have become far too complex. I think I'm going out in the back yard and lit a match to the game and vow never to buy another Microsoft product.
Help, anyone? Support?
