-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What you need to fix:

1.Fix to registry for Windows Modules Installer services:View attachment TrustedInstallerFix.zip
//this ZIP file include TrustedInstaller.reg file //
2.TrustedInstaller.exe file appriopriate for your system.You can extract it from your own Vista DVD using 7-zip or WinRAR CLICK
or claasic method using WAIK CLICK -your choose how to do that :sleepy:

or just download & extract from already prepared ZIP files;appriopriate for your system

for x32 View attachment TrustedInstallerX86.zip

for x64 View attachment TrustedInstallerX64.zip

3.Sometimes you will need Psexec.exe file cointained in PsTools if you have any trouble with importing fix to registry (details below)

How to fix:

1.Download TrustedInstaller.reg and TrustedInstaller.exe (appriopriate for your system),TrustedInstaller.reg file you can place anywhere for example you can place on your desktop,Documents folder (as you wish).File TrustedInstaller.exe you have to place directly in C:\Windows\Servicing folder but you have to change permissions to do that because Administrators group nor you don't have full control for Servicing folder:

-takeownership C:\Windows\Servicing folder and add your account to have full control

//see this tutorial how to do that:CLICK

-place TrustedInstaller.exe in C:\Windows\Servicing folder

2.Import fix to registry attached above (just double click on TrustedInstaller.reg file).Possible you don't have any problem with importing it,if it won't return any error ignore points 3 and 4 and go to point 5 ,if it return error "Acess denied" the best way to workaround it, import this fix from SYSTEM account (go to point 3).

3.Download PsTools ,extract from this psexec.exe file and place it in C:\Windows\System32 folder

4.Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges (right click on cmd.exe as admin) and type:

psexec -s -i -d regedit


This command run regedit from System account.In regedit go to File>>Import,navigate to location where you store TrustedInstaller.reg file,choose it and apply.

5.Restart computer.After restart Windows Update should work fine now.
6.If everything work fine now restore oryginal permissions to C:\Windows\Servicing folder

-remove your account from permissions to Servicing folder
-Restore ownership of Servicing folder back to "NT Service\TrustedInstaller"

//see this tutorial how to do that CLICK

Hi,

Are you importing it as an administrator? are you on a restricted account?

If that doesn't work please create your own thread & we will continue from there!

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.
