Windows could not search for new updates, error code 80070426 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 on HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC 64-bit Operating System. Since about a month it stopped updating. Every time I want to update it gives me the same message "Windows could not search for new updates. Error found, Code 80070426.

    Following the possible solutions for others who posted a similar problem, I typed "service" on start search and on the side of slsvc it gives a description <failed to Read Description, Error Code 2>. When I click start the service, it gives me the message "Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."

    I appreciate any feed back to help me solve the problem.

    Thank you
