Windows Update Error 80070002

Q: Windows Update Error 80070002

Greetings.

I've ran into a problem recently. I find myself in a situation where I need to update my current operating system - Windows Vista Home Premium (x64) - from Service Pack 1 to Service Pack 2.

Now, normally (afaik) this would be achieved using the Windows Update tool but in my case it does not seem to be working. It tries to install the update but near the end it stops with an error '80070002'.

I've tried these Microsoft guides referring to error 8007002 (didn't fix my problem though):

Windows Update error 80070002

How do I reset Windows Update components?

Now, the first link asks me to download the System Update Readiness Tool. There is a big notification on the download page that says "The support for Vista without SP2 has been discontinued.." etc. So, I'm not sure that the tool even works for me anymore. Nevertheless, I downloaded it and after a lengthy loading screen it did say that the tool was installed. After booting my PC, I still received the update error though.

Besides those guides, I've read on other threads that registry errors might be the cause for my update problems. I've done a System File Checker scan and it said that it found some defective files but it couldn't fix them. Also, it referred to a .log file for more infromation but unfortunately I have no way of deciphering the file.

I've also downloaded the Service Pack manually and tried to install it but I keep receiving an error as well. I even went as far as to try the installer in Window's safe mode but that didn't work either.

So, I find myself frustratedly at a loss. I've done Google searches on the subject for hours but nothing seems to be fixing the issue. I'm aware that this forum contains many threads with the same subject as mine and I've been through most of them. Yet, they did not help me resolve the error I keep receiving. I'd love to find a solution without having to install Vista all over again on my computer (or a W7 upgrade).

As you've noticed, I'm quite clueless when it comes to these things and any help you can offer is extremely appreciated.

EDIT: I've attached my CBS and CheckSUR log files.

Trying to install Vista SP1 via Windows update. Keeps failing with the above error. This is a Windows Vista Business Toshiba R500 laptop that the hard drive went on me. I have since restored the Vista OS on the new hard drive by using the recovery disks I created. I have followed the MS troubleshooting options by deleting the Windows update history as it may have previously had SP1 on it.

Now the SP1 update is the only one it finds and it just will not install.

Anyone come across this and overcome it?

We've had several systems recently that were infected with various versions of Fake Alert trojans that we were able to clean using the tools described in the virus removal section of this website. In a few cases after cleaning the virus we can't install Windows updates. Get error message 80070002. We've tried all the Microsoft recommended fixes and some posted on various other forums. We end up having to reinstall Windows. Is anyone else having this problem? Have a fix?

Hi,
Background: I've been doing my research on this for a while, but have yet to find a solution. It seems to be a common problem with varying solutions depending on the user. I have a basic level of understanding, but may need some hand-holding on specific tasks.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Problem: My windows update isn't updating and has given me error code 80070002 every time I look for updates. I've run some of the recommended windows fixes with no luck. There is no list of installed updates either.

Related info: sfc /scannow does not work. I cannot restore to previous restore points. It seems I cannot do repair installs, only a full clean install (obviously I would like to avoid this). I have run SFCfix and there are no errors (see below box). I have also run chkdsk and there are no errors.

Any further information needed?

Help!

ive tried using the SFC scan, but everytime i use it i get the same message that i need to reboot.. so that didnt work

I should warn you that my track record n fixing this type of error is not good (yet!) - mostly because its rare.
Having said that, it does look like there is corruption in your registry.

I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

The other day I wast^H^H^H^Hspent several hours wrestling with the Windows 7 update mechanism; now that it seems the problem is fixed, I'd like to share the story in the hope that it may be helpful for someone with a similar problem.

This is my first post to the forum, so I'd welcome remarks about style or detail ...

The system in question is a Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit, SP 1. It is a localized version, thus I can't always give the exact english wording of messages, sorry.

What was wrong

Compared to my rusty and trusty (private) Win XP, the Win 7 (developer) machine has always been somewhat brittle: It had sporadic Blue Screens in the past, but most of the time it worked.

The "situation" developed as I tried to update the system (the setting is automatic fetch, manual install). Windows Update failed with some error code I did not write down; I tried several rounds of sfc /scannow and reboots, and after some research I decided to try the "official" fix: KB947821, the "System Update Readiness Tool". This looked right for me:

System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

After running for several hours (I was warnded about it) it finally finished installing, claiming a successful install. Unfortunately, the situation was even worse now: Search for updates consistently failed with error 80070002, and the system file check tool sfc /scannow also would not com... Read more

A:Windows 7 update error 80070002 - the story of a fix.

Nice explanation - and well done!

The problem usually arises because of a single bit-flip where one binary digit is flipped (1/0 to 0/1), resulting in a value which the OS can't make any sense of, or which is prohibited - this then locks out any further access to the value, and permissions become irrelevant.
Much of the time the system can get around it, and some of the time, CheckSUR will actually create a new value that works. It seems that neither was the case here, and the error caused the SFC crash and WU lockout.

It is possible to edit the hive using a hex editor to see and replace the offending character which will allow normal access to the Key for modification/deletion. Usually, the hardest part is to find the affected key.
I've done this successfully using HxD hex editor - but only in the Components hive, which is usually not loaded by the OS. Doing it for the Software hive would be more complex, as you'd need to do it from either a second machine, or from a Recovery Environment boot so that you don't run into normal access problems with an open hive.

If you actually look at the value in the error statement you can see what looks to me like an immediate bitflip there

Code:

I doubt that this of itself is enough to cause the problem, but it could be that there are unprintable characters. I do... Read more

I have about a 3 year old Win 7 64-bit computer. It has had Windows update issues for quite some time and always been a bit quirky. I just started reading about the error code and have done all of the appropriate response fixes from Microsoft. Let me preface this by saying I have always had issues with the memory which I am installing new chips hopefully today. Until then I was wondering if someone could have a look at the simple text that SFCFix came up with. It will be below. I also cannot run the scf /scannow command in windows or safe mode due to the usual system protection thing. I thought maybe if I posted the SFCFix log maybe someone will recognize it as being something that someone has seen. I am also attaching the CBS log. Thank you in advance.

Hello,

I have been trying to update my computer for about 6 months now to no avail. Updates are downloaded, but not installed - - instead I get error code 80070002 and the updates all fail . I have tried using the stand alone installer, and all the recommendations that windows help offered, but no luck. I read through another thread and tried using the MGADiag.exe program and my OS is genuine, but the error code 80070002 comes up repeatedly throughout the report. Please, if anybody knows how to resolve this issue, I would be very appreciative!

A:Windows Update Error Code: 80070002 - Help PLEASE!

80070002 is a File Not Found error. It suggests (to me) a corruption of the downloads. Give this a try (you must be using an adminstrator account for this):

- Go to Start and type "cmd" (without the quotes)
- at the top of the Search box will be an entry for CMD.EXE - right click on it and select "Run as administrator"
- In the black window that appears, type "net stop wuauserv" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Wait until the screen tells you that it's completed successfully. Leave this window open as you'll need it later. If it prompts to stop other services, tell it yes.

- Open up Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution. Delete the contents of the folder (but not the folder itself).

- Go back to the black window and type "net start wuauserv" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

- Reboot and see if Windows Update works now. Let us know what happens.

I have a computer that just won't update Windows at all. Windows 7 32-bit ,Toshiba Satellite L505 laptop.

I've tried every single thing I can think of and every suggestion I've come across and nothing has worked. I've done chkdsk, memory tests, sfc /scannow, resetting the SoftwareDistribution folder, every relevant Windows Fix-it tool. I even formatted the hard drive and did a clean install and yet the problem persists.

I should mention, sfc /scannow does not run properly. I get the "Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation" error.

Also, I get regular IE and Windows Explorer crashes and occasional freezes. Could this be due to the lack of updates? That's what I suspect but I'm not sure. I know there are many many updates that the computer needs.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Windows Update error 80070002

Your best option in that case is to run the CHKDSK and SFC in offline mode from a Recovery Environment boot.

Reboot the computer, and tap the F8 key until you get the advanced boot menu up - one option should be 'Repair your computer'. Pick that one.

Log into your normal account.
You'll get a set of options - pick the Command Prompt one.
At the command prompt, type DIR C:\
- if we're lucky this will bring up a listing of your normal C: drive contents, including the Program Files folder(s) and the Windows folder.
If not, try D:\ or E:\ (etc. until you get the right letter)
then type the following command

CHKDSK <drive>: /R

and wait for it to complete - it could take a few hours, depending on the size of the drive.

Once complete, type

sfc /scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=<drive>:\ /OFFWINDIR=<drive>:\Windows

where <drive> is the letter you found above.

Wait for the command to complete. (make a note of the response!).

Once it has, type EXIT and the pick the option to reboot.

A few things to get away before I start this post:
I have read the sticky post by Geekgirl and I know I might not get an answer.
Yes, I know that Windows 7 is a beta. So don't give a bunch of flak about it being a beta and there are bugs.

So I had a friend install Windows 7 on my laptop and dual boot it. It worked perfect until about a week ago when I tried to update. Now, every time I try to update, I get a 80070002 error.

I asked my friend if he knew what was up with it and he said he had intalled the Windows 7 watermark patch and Timernuke.

I found and followed instructions to remove both of those and then followed the instructions on TechNet to fix the error on Vista.

The problem still exists. I am mainly just posting this to see if anybody else has this problem and would like to work together to find the solution.

Thank you.

I had heard that this works like a repair install and helps fix any corrupt system file problems. But when it gets to the second part of the install (after copying windows files, i think) it says:
Windows was unable to complete the installation and will install when you restart the installation again. The installation window popped up again and so I tried again. It said the same thing, I tried it multiple times but it refuses to work. I rebooted and it booted into windows setup, not vista. It started and then said:
The setup could not start or something like that. Using msconfig I have changed the default OS back to vista.

Hi,

I have had my pc running on Vista for about 3 months. For the first couple of weeks it allowed me to do Windows Updates. Since then I have had a whole range of different errors and as I found a fix for each one it was replaced by another. I am now constantly getting the Error No. 80070002. I have tried everything I can find online to rectify the problem including those below which seem to have fixed other people's pcs. Any help greatly appreciated.

Solution One
1)Stop the windows update service (from services)
2)Delete temporary update files - In Datastore and download
3)Restart the the windows update service

Solution two
Apply this file
after u apply this file reboot and try to do a update again it should work http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...-bdb8-c4e00af5b94b/NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe

I was getting that same error - and saying "cannot search for updates".

I tried the Fixit tool and command prompts - suggested by Microsoft - nothing worked.

I finally called Microsoft - 1 - 800 - Microsoft and they did a remote on my comp and the problem is solved, at least for now.

There is no charge for this service.

As for System Restore, make sure you have set a Restore Point.
Go to Start and type system restore.
Go to " Create a restore point".

See if your C drive says "on" and if not click Configure.

I built a machine 3 years ago, and it had all sorts of BSOD errors. When I moved about a year ago, the computer went into a box and didn't come out until last week when my daughter decided she needed a computer.

Well, thanks to the help of people here, the BSOD have been solved. Now I have the issue of my install just won't upgrade. I get an Code 80070002 inside of windows update.

My windows shows as being registered and has the Genuine Microsoft logo on the bottom right of computer properties.

I have tried to follow the suggestions on microsoft's help site about disabling the Windows update service, and then deleting the c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution directory. This didn't seem to help at all.

I'd like not to have to wipe the hard drive and install all over again, as there is some software installed on the machine that I can't find anymore and would hate to loose it. But there are not any updates loaded on the machine as when I was getting the BSOD problems, the only solution was to disable the automatic updates and not apply any as that caused the machine to blue screen.

(it turned out it was bluescreening because the motherboard was twisted when it screwed down and caused memory issues).

If it isn't one thing it's got to be another. HELP

A:Error 80070002 cannot update

First run CHKDSK and SFC - (again??)

Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....
type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator
- the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type
CHKDSK C: /R
and hit the Enter key.

You will be told that the drive is locked,
and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, and then reboot.

The chkdsk will take a few hours depending on the size
of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally
(possibly after a second auto-reboot) - then run the SFC

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on the Start button
type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.


Try running the CheckSUR tool - System Update Readiness Tool that fixes Windows Update problems is available for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

My daughter's laptop is throwing BSODs and will not install Windows updates. I've downloaded the CheckSUR tool and have attached the log file from that. I need help getting the missing repair files OR I need help fixing the problems if getting the missing repair files isn't the direction I need to take.

We ran the CHKDSK and it said everything was ok. I think that's because when I finally tried to run it manually, it said everything was ok. I think she said it had run two or three days previously. I don't know if she started it or if the laptop started it on it's own after a BSOD and a reboot.

I tried to run the SFC but it was unsuccessful with the following message:

'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.'

Can someone help? I don't want to wipe her laptop and start over, if at all possible. Thank you!

Went thru all posts everywhere to try to fix the issue to no avail.

Always end up with update failure 0x80070002, and then if I go to shutdown it attempts to install 3 updates which end up failing every time.

1) Just ran SURT which appears to have unsuccessfully installed an update, because i ran it again and it did the same exact install which leads me to believe it didnt work last time.

2) Tried to run SFC every which way to Sunday, online, offline, with options, without, from two different Win 7 Pro Sp1 DVD's, always ends up failing saying reboot or system repair pending.

3) Only get error code 0X80070002

I've tried the Microsoft fixes, browsed here and at Microsoft, had 2 Microsoft techs take over my computer, and still no good. I had another drive and clean installed Win 7 SP 1, same problem. I checked for viruses, Avast and Malwarebytes, nothing found.

My PC is a homebrew, Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3, Intel Pentium G3258, not OC'd, 16 Mb PNY PC3-28000 RAM. My software is legit.

Originally my problems started with shutting down my PC before going to work and seeing updates are installing, do not shut off machine. I'd get home and see the same message. I'd restart using the resset button and maybe that's what originally through things off if it was hanging. It was still connected to the internet, always is unless I shut down the machine.

As I said I've tried Microsoft fixes but my problem is obviously in the registry, why it would be in my new install in my other drive I have no idea. I'm at a loss and not a software geek, though I can roam around in the system when I have an idea what to look for.

Any ideas?

Dear Forum,

the windows update service on my laptop only returns error 80070002. It seems to be a common problem for a lot of people, however most of the standard steps to take do not seem to work for my machine.

CHKDSK is ok.

sfc /scannow however refuses to work. Even with admin privileges, it says that "resource protection" wont allow it to run. If started from windows recovery mode, sfc claims that there is another operation pending and a reboot is needed, first. Needless to say, this other operation is stuck in limbo.

All other methods of manually deleting/reseting the update logs, including the .bat from this website, have failed.

Even returning to a system restore point brought no change.

The last known update to work was for net framework.

I'm not sure where to go from here since i figure my attempts might have already made the situation worse.

Had to use a third party filesharing provider:
