Windows Firewall and Service Pack 2
Got hold of my daughters laptop the other day to "clean it out."
Gave it a complete scan, checkdisk, malware and spybot.
A couple of problems though.
First is that the firewall will not stay on. (windows Firewall).
This was happening before i did the clean.
Second is when i try to install service pack 2 for Vista home premium, there is an error message which says..
Acer Aspire 5920
Vista Home Premium
Any more information then please ask.

You receive a "0x80070490" error code when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates
maybe start there
and its been a very long time since i've posted here, but, i'm totally digging the way the links behave in the comments! haha

That wants me to do a repair with a dvd. Problem is i have no dvd with Vista on it. Was pre-installed.

ok...did the SFC thing.
Got to 41%, then..."Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windir\logs\CBS\CBS.log
Cannot open the logs as access is denied. Tried it through windows and the cmd prompt.

re:Windows Firewall and Service Pack 2
Windows XP Service Pack 2 includes an improved firewall that is enabled by default. This will provide increased security for your system.

looks like you may be better off backing up files/pictures and restore the thing. there should be options when you boot the computer to use the "restore partition" to reload windows.

If i were to "borrow"a disc with Vista home premium on it, would i be able to do a repair?
