Vista Update Error 80070490

#1
My computer will not install updates. Every time I try, I get a message "Update failed-error 80070490", which is apparently a "corrupt CBS Manifest". I have tried everything I can find to fix this problem. I did Microsoft suggested - nothing worked. The only other option is to use the installation CD. Of course, I don't have an installation CD because Vista was pre-loaded on my computer when I bought it.

I burned your recovery CD and tried that. I ran it at startup and it loaded the window files and then I hit repair computer. It ran through a couple of screens and restarted my computer.

However, I still have the same problem...

Any suggestions?
