Windows 7 - Error Code: WindowsUpdate_8020002E

Asked By sneakylyn on 23-Jan-09 09:36 PM

I just received my new computer and I am getting this one error message when
I did the updates.  I know the same thing happened with my last computer, but
I can't remember what was suggested to fix the issue.  I am running Windows

Any advice?

Thanks! :O)

PS:  Here is the name of the update I am trying to download that gives me
the above error code:

Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems (KB955020)

Download size: 62.9 MB
