Hi Jard, welcome to the NGs. As for your error what I've found -
0x80070490 - ERROR_NOT_FOUND
Corrupted System File;

Ignore the title : Some Windows Vista functions may not work, or Windows
Vista may stop responding
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833
Tells you about SFC

Hopefully doing the SFC may rectify the problem for you.

Thank you TaurArian:),
SFC was not able to sort things out, though, as it did not recognize a
needed log-file. I will not despair and persevere trying :(.

Thanks again
JG
