Windows 7: Error 80070490 With 5 Failed Updates

17 Mar 2015   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

Thanks for looking in on this! Looks like I will have to reinstall.

I'd like to avoid a recurrence of this after the reinstall; is there a way to know what cause the corruption? I always install the "important" updates and WU has worked smoothly for years. I don't use IE and so have not updated it from 8 since the IE9/10/11 updates are marked optional. A couple of months ago, I thought it'd be good to have a backup browser, and so chose in WU to install IE 11. That was the first update to fail (with the same error.) I didn't think much of it at the time and just hid the update, but obviously additional failures are occurring. What did I mess up?

Thanks again for your help!
