I recommend trying the free service from Zip Cloud. It's currently our users' favorite backup and storage solution and will save you headaches down the line.

You can get it direct from this link http://goo.gl/rFYDxc. (This link will open the Zip Cloud homepage.)

A: Windows Update Error Code 490 & 80070490

You have a number of problems in the registry - as far as I can see at present, there are no file problems.

Please copy the file C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS (no file extension) to your desktop, and then compress it.
Then upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (SkyDrive or Dropbox would be fine) and post a link.

Either myself or Tom982 will then pick it up, and see what we can do with it.

A:Windows Update Error code:80070490

Hello Gamer,

To resolve this issue, you must perform a repair installation of Windows Vista. Performing a repair installation will restore the current Windows installation to the version of the installation DVD. This also requires the installation of all updates that are not included on the installation DVD.

Follow these steps:

1. Close all applications, and then restart the computer.
2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.
3. In the Setup window, click Install Now.

Note If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:
1. Click Start
Collapse this imageExpand this image
Start button
, and then type Drive:\setup.exe in the Start Search box.

Note The Drive placeholder is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.
2. In the Programs list, click Setup.exe.
3. In the Setup window, click Install Now.
4. Click Go online to obtain the latest updates for installation (recommended).
5. Type the CD key if you are prompted to do this.
6. Click Yes to accept the Microsoft Software License Terms.
7. On the Which kind of installation do you want? screen, click Upgrade.
8. When the installation is complete, restart your computer, and then try to install the updates.

I am running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 and my Windows Update has quit working. I get the error code 80070490.

I have tried Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x64 Update Readiness Tool, MicrosoftFixit50202, MicrosoftFixit.wu.LB.Run, MicrosoftFixit50123, .and but none of them worked. I ran the Control Panel troubleshooting tool for Windows Update and it said "Updates ran successfully" and told me to run Windows Update again. I did and still got the 80070490 error code.

I have 2 backups that I have tried. One is from March 20th and the other is April 30th of this year. I restored the April backup first and Windows Update didn't work with it either so I started over and restored the March 20th backup. Windows Update worked for a little while but then the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool tried to update and it took it a long time and Windows Update hasn't worked since.

I ran a test this morning and it told me that I had missing files and registry entries for Windows Update but I don't remember which test it was because I've ran so many.

I can't to a Windows installation repair because I have a retail version and it states that the version I am using is newer than the version I want to install. I can't uninstall Windows Service Pack 1 because it came as a package with Windows 7 and already installed with my system. I have also uninstalled the updates that were installed after the March 20th backup but that did not help either! I hate the thoughts of havin... Read more

I didn't see any posts about this, so I hope I am not double posting.

After removing a drive load of viruses, I am still not able to update Windows Vista to Service Pack 1. I have even tried to create a new admin user account in hopes that this would work, but no go. I tried running sfc.exe / scannow from the CMD and it did report that it was unable to repair wextract.exe. Also, the file reportingevents.txt located in %system root%\windows\softwaredistribution\reportingevents.txt lists "Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80070490".

i had to reinstall vista because of a random catastrophic crash and very recently i restored my pc to working order from a rootkit trojan with the help of _temp_ over on the hjt subforum. the only thing i couldn't get to work is windows update. the updater installed sp1 successfully, but the 26 important updates following that refuse to install. what i get is a 100% download confirmation, then a 100% install confirmation, then an error Code 80070490 whereby none of the updates integrate. i tried installing these security updates individually and they all seem to successfully install this way except that when i go back to the list of available updates, there they are again as if nothing happened. _temp_ suggested that this error code was caused by alcohol 120, which i have since uninstalled, but that action has not produced results. his other suggestion was that i load a system restore point, but the only ones i have in the queue are restore points from when i had a rootkit infection, therefore those are no good. what i'd like to know is how this problem came about and if there is any other fix for it. i found this on google, but kinda iffy on it destabilizing my os: http://blogs.msdn.com/andrekl/archive/2008...erver-2008.aspxany pointers would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi, I am helping out a neighbour who has a laptop (emachine model E510) running Vista Home Basic with SP2.

Unfortunately, the anti-virus software ran out several months ago and the machine became infected with malware. I suspect that this may be the cause of the current issue regarding 'Windows could not search for new updates' and the error code 80070490.

It is not possible to restore to an earlier point in time (they seem to be missing), all previous updates are also missing.

I have installed AVG anti-virus software, scanned the laptop and used Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Superantispyware and Spybot to remove all viruses and rebooted several times. I have followed the instructions on Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958044 Method 1 and also Mr Fixit. I cannot use method 2 as there is no repair CD/DVD.

I have searched various forums (including the ones here) and am running out of ideas. I would be grateful for any suggestions.

If you need to know any more technical details, please let me know.

Many thanks

Hey guys, I was hoping you could help me with an error I'm getting when trying to update Windows Vista. It always says update failed, and gives me the error 80070490. I tried whatever solutions I found online, and so far none worked. I've tried the System Update Readiness tool, renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder, the Microsoft Fixit tool, and I did the manual fixing process as shown here: How do I reset Windows Update components?

An upgrade/repair install also didn't work, as for some reason whenever going through the process, loading up the cd, and clicking to install, I never get the option for an upgrade... it just goes ahead and starts to install over my current Vista installation. I read uninstalling a service pack might help (I have both installed), but they just don't even show up in the list where they should, for uninstallation. I tried other Vista disks, all for Home Premium x64 like my computer, and nothing worked.

Any other ideas? I really hope someone can help me out here... thanks in advance!

Hello,

My PC is an HP Pavillion dv6500 notebook with Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP1. In trying to upgrade to SP2 (and failing), I realized that my Windows Update was not updating anymore...neither automatically nor manually. After some patching and restarting, some files have successfully downloaded while others are still not. For each one of these files that don't download, I get the error 80070490. The same error is given when I tried to update my PC to SP2 with a manual download from the Microsoft site.

I suspect that this error is due to corruption from some malware that I got rid of many months ago. Most forums said the easiest solution is to repair Windows or do a system restore, but Windows was pre-loaded on my comp and I don't have the CD, so that is not an option...and I do not have a restore point prior to the corruption. I have tried stopping and restarting Windows Update to no avail. I've also performed the System Update Readiness Scan, but it did not fix all of the errors. The checkSUR log of my errors is given in the post immediately below this one.

Can anyone help with this? It seems that as I browse the forums that this error is tough to get rid of and each case has its own separate solution.

Underneath it says Most recent check for updates: Never
Updates were installed: Never
You have windows set to: Automatically install new updates every day at 11:00 AM
You receive updates: For Windows and other products from Microsoft Update

I've had this problem for a while. Tried searching Google to fix the problem, tried a few things, no help. Called Lenovo, they directed me to this forum. Says I have no installed updates at this point. I know that's not true. Running Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit, and am on SP1. I'm open to trying just about anything, but will need specific directions as to how to solve the problem. Thank you.

10:00 AM Update - In another thread I saw I should run sfc/scannow in administrator mode and I did. Said it found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. It created a CBS.log file too big to copy here. However, trying the Windows Update feature, it still did not work, and has the same error code.

Greetings

I have tried fixing this on my own for a while but I have run out of easy options. My HP Pavilion G6 laptop keeps failing to install some updates and gives the error code 80070490. The laptop was pre-installed with Windows 7 and is out of warranty so I do not have a disk to do a repair install. Some other updates have been successful but the important ones always fail. I tried to attach the CBS zip file but it is too large. I put it in a dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/fi2ffkyovvjzfvv/CBS.zip?dl=0

If I need to do something different please let me know.

A:Windows Update Error 80070490

You now hold the record for the largest CBS.log file I've ever seen! 4.2GB is one heck of a filesize - and it looks as if it was too big for the makecab compression to handle.

The current one is 'only' 680MB... - and still too big for my editor to handle.
I was able to extract the SFC data, and the only errors present are those to be expected from the MS coding errors in two updates - they don't affect anything else.

I found a SP2 slipstreamed reinstall ISO here and was finally able to do an upgrade reinstall, which replaces your system files while keeping your programs and personal files. This fixed the corruptions that were preventing me from searching for and installing updates. I had about 220 updates to install after this, and installed about 10 at a time. They all installed except IE9 with error 9C41, which I fixed by uninstalling firefox, setting IE as the default browser, and then reinstalling firefox. Updates are all installed now and windows update is working normally!

Hi there

We have an error every time we did the Windows Update for Windows 7 SP1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932).

We have the posting instruction as follow:

1. We did the SURT and complete.
2. We also did "sfc /scannow" and no found any errors
3. Error Code: 80070490 - Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
4. Try to attached the zip file for Windows Logs\CBS - it has 24MB after compression. We can split the file BUT it won't allow to submit due to it has something like CBS.zip.01.

Hi,

First post here. I work with seniors helping them with computer issues and this one is on an HP Desktop WIndows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I only help him about once a week so any suggestions may not be attempted for a few days. Windows Update gives error 80070490 when trying to install kb2922229 and kb2871997. I have run the System Update Readiness Tool and the SFC and tried to repair it by doing an "upgrade" with a Windows 7 install disc per Microsoft's instructions. Nothing worked and the install disc I used to repair it was not one that came with his computer and I got a message stating the running system was newer than the disc system. That may be but the steps did not mention that could happen so I don't know what to do about it. I haven't done it in a while but maybe I could slipstream an install disc to make it newer than his running system??

I attached the cbs.zip file. It listed many corrupt files but I don't know which ones apply to windows update. I did some research on Microsoft's DISM but evidently it won't replace corrupt files in a running Windows 7 system...only in Windows 8. I'm wondering if I made a system image of his computer if DISM would be able to manipulate the image to replace the bad files then I could restore the image.

Before tackling the windows update error I had loaded Norton 360 and used Norton Power Eraser (didn't work) and then the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool (NBRT) to remove a bug called "Trade Terminal by Global Trad... Read more

HiJackThis doesn't work properly with a 64-bit version of Windows, so both of your logs are inaccurate and incomplete.

They do show enough however to indicate some problems in that computer.

It's infested with malware, spyware, etc..

It has a very bloated startup load.

Several of its programs are very outdated.

It appears to be a Sony VAIO(desktop or laptop?).

You appear to have a severe problem.

The summary from your CheckSUR report reads

Customer Experience report successfully uploaded. Thank you for participating. For more information, see the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program on the Microsoft web site.
The problem appears to be in the registry - so the easiest fix is going to be a System Restore back to before the problem started, since the number of errors makes manual repair unlikely.

Do you know when the problem started?
When was the last Windows Update installed? - ignore MSE or Windows Defender updates

Hi all... me too I need help about this error that comes both with window update and even when I try to run the SP2 standalone executable.
I have already tried the microsoft "fixit" tool with no success, and tried the system update readiness, 3-4 times after many reboot... I've tryed to stop the update service from services.msc and renaming the softwaredistribution directory, but the error was not solved.
Also tried the sfc /scannow but the error still remain.
The notebook is a HP dv5 with vista home premium 32bit... I can't perform the install/repair from the vista dvd because the recovery dvd provided from HP doesn't show the win vista menu but the HP menu and I can only do a restore to factory setting with the initial image of the system.
I attach the last checksur log... I hope that someone has some suggestion for me too...
No problem for me to edit the registry or perform other difficult actions on the system.
