I just registered to thank Flavius and all the posters for this great tutorial. I was stumped on this issue with a friends PC and this was the only solution on the net that worked.

Cheers.

sorry for bumping this post but i have the same problem and i tried reposting a new thread but it seemed appropriate to just post on this one where people already know what my situation is So it all started when i was trying to install Itunes and right before it was done installing i got this error "An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VC80.CRT,version="8.0.50727.4053",type="win32,publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",processorArchitecture="x86". Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x800736b" . So i do some research and learn that i need a newer version of microsoft visual c++ 2005. I try install that and i get this 'Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation of assembly.
Microsoft.VC80.ATL.type="win32".version="8.050727.4053"."publicKeyToken"="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b".processorArchitecture="X86"

Ive also noticed some other strange things such as my windows module installer says started and i cant stop it so i think theres something wrong with that and everytime i put in sfc/scannnow it says windows resource protection could not preform the following operation. My windows updates also dont work i get code 80073712.

Please help me I have some skills on the computer but they are somewhat limited but im sure i can follow the instructions.


I also tried scenario 3 but it still wont cooperate

Wow, this was very helpful - it fixed a nasty problem for me (I followed the steps given under Scenario III). Thank you for posting. I went through hours of troubleshooting the Windows Update error 0x80070002 on a Windows 7 PC, which also featured the SFC error "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service," and was not getting anywhere. Microsoft procedures and FixIt scripts intended to fix Windows Update errors were not yielding any results. For the record, this system didn't have SP1 installed, but when I initially downloaded the full update and tried to install, the same 0x80070002 error occurred. After following the steps in this procedure, SP1 installed and Windows Updates began functioning normally.
