Windows 7: Win7 home premium 64bit update fails, error 8007370B

Hi Jills,

No problem, glad you found it useful. It's a very undocumented topic so, unfortunately, people don't really have much chance fixing this themselves.

I can't say definitively but due to the nature of a bit flip, it has to be caused by something that deals with raw binary data. There are quite a few components in your computer that do this including, but not limited to, the hard disk, the hard disk controller and the RAM. I wouldn't be too concerned with having under 5 bit flips and I would put it down to just general wear and tear, it's systems where I've had to fix hundreds where alarm bells start going off! But if you do want to run a few diagnostics, then I would recommend running chkdsk and memtest:
