Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, 64 bit OS running on a HP DV6 notebook with IE Version 7 64 bit.
Every time I start my laptop I get the message that I need to update but when I try, it always gives me this error. "Windows could not search for update because of the error code".
I have tried and tried to get the updates to work going meticulously through the steps, turning off and deleting files but every time I try I keep getting the Windows update 80070002 error and when I recheck the files I just deleted, the files are back in the data store folder. How can I get these files to stay deleted so I can get the updates?
I have Googled for remedies but none has worked. This must be a common problem and I don't understand why MS can't fix it online.
