Still the 800700b7 error?

See if this helps - it seems that it can be caused by corrupted Shadow Copies.

1 close all windows
2. Resize Maximum Shadow Copy Storage Space by running the following command, there may be caused by limited space.

1) Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then right-click Command Prompt.
2) Click Run as administrator.
3) At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

vssadmin list shadowstorage /for=c:

4) Note the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage Space value.
5) At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=c: /on=c: /maxsize=300Mb

6) Close the Command Prompt window.

Error: Specified number is invalid
Resize ShadowStorage /For=ForVolumeSpec /On=OnVolumeSpec /MaxSize=MaxSizeSpec
- Resizes the maximum size for a shadow copy storage association between
ForVolumeSpec and OnVolumeSpec. Resizing the storage association may cause
shadow
copies to disappear. As certain shadow copies are deleted, the shadow copy
storage
space will then shrink. If MaxSizeSpec is set to the value UNBOUNDED, the s
hadow copy
storage space will be unlimited. MaxSizeSpec can be specified in bytes or a
s a
percentage of the ForVolumeSpec storage volume. For byte level specificatio
n,
MaxSizeSpec must be 300MB or greater and accepts the following suffixes: KB,
MB, GB, TB,
PB and EB. Also, B, K, M, G, T, P, and E are acceptable suffixes. To speci
fy MaxSizeSpec
as percentage, use the % character as the suffix to the numeric value. If a
suffix is not
supplied, MaxSizeSpec is in bytes.
Example Usage: vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=D: /MaxSize=900MB
vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=D: /MaxSize=UNBOUN
DED
vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=20%

Heh! - the command was a direct crib from an MS techie's post... just goes to show that they get it wrong as well

Try this command instead

vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=2GB

This will force a flush of the data, so let's see how much remains....

vssadmin list shadowstorage /for=c:

then bump it back up again

vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=10GB

...and check that we've actually changed something

vssadmin list shadowstorage /for=c:

Great - try Windows Update again and we'll see if that's made any difference.

Oh, b^gg€r!

Let's try this....

Open WindowsExplorer (Computer)

Navigate to the C:\Windows folder

Find the System32 sub-folder and right-click on it

select Properties



Clear the 'blob'from the 'Read-only (Only applies to files infolder)' box by clicking on it until it's plain white.

Click on Apply.



Make sure thatthe radio button for 'Apply changes to thisfolder, subfolders and files' is set, and click OK.



Accept theAdministrator prompt. After a couple of seconds, you'll be told there is anerror - click on the 'Ignore all' button.



Wait for it tofinish - it could take a couple of minutes.



OK out, and exitWindows Explorer.



Reboot twice



Now try WU again
