    Hi guys,
    Well I've had my computer for like the past, 1 year or so.
    Just like a few months ago, during August, there was a popup at the taskbar saying that windows can't download the update or something like that.
    So, yesterday, I used the Operating System disc that I got when I first got my (gateway) computer, and reset everything. But, it still doesn't work!! I can't even download itunes anymore. I keep pressing the "Try again" button, and it doesn't work. The error code I get is "Code 8007000B".
    CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME!?

    Windows Update error 8007000b

    If you receive error 8007000b when you try to install Windows Vista updates, the Windows file system transaction log has become corrupted. The transaction log is used by the Windows file system to recover when a file error occurs. To correct this update error, you need to clear the log. Here's how:

    To clear the file system transaction log
    Click the Start button . In the Search box, type Command Prompt, and then, in the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.

    In the command prompt window, type fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\. (This assumes that C: is the drive in which Windows Vista is installed. If Windows is installed on another drive, change the drive letter accordingly.)

    Restart your computer.

    Download and install the update again.

    If the problem persists after you have followed the steps above, go to the Windows Update Support Center website to try to find more information about the error code or to request support by e-mail.

    Thanks beefy, but I tried that before when and I got a bluescreen.
    Do you possibly have any other solutions?
