    I am getting Error code: 0x80070426 while trying to update Microsoft Security Essentials

    I have installed Microsoft Security Essentials on mine Windows XP system. But when I updating I got this error: “Error code: 0x80070426 “. I'm hoping someone out there definitely hanging trying to help. I have tried to uninstall the all third party programs. If you have the error code, you can search the community for this or pass this along to the Support Team. Microsoft Security Essentials was not able verify for virus & spyware definition updates. I have tried lots threads but I didn’t have the any suggestion on this. So therefore can anyone suggest on this and so that I can solve mine issue.

    I would like to suggest you to perform the system restore in the safe mode and so that you won’t get the any error during the update time. To do this follows the steps below: Go to the start and then make hit on the search field and after that under the search type system restore and then make hit on the ok button. Now on the search result you will get the system restore program. Double click on that program and then choose the different system restore. Under that enter the date before one week and after that enter the all other date on this application. Once you complete the entering the data now make hit on the next. Once you complete this restart your system in the normal mode and then it will work and your error will get solved
