0x800B0100 No signature was present in the subject

Since the system has never successfully updated you can follow the steps
laid out here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934562

After renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder, restart the system to
normal Windows mode.
Download and SAVE the latest version of the Windows Update Agent [WUA]
for the version of Vista that is installed on the system :

Windows Update Agent 3.0 [x86 - 32 bit]
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

Windows Update Agent 3.0 [x64 or 64 bit]
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x64.exe

When the download completes close the browser and any other open programs.
Now install the WUA.
Did that help ?

Re: Vista Windows Update Error Msg 800B0100

Microsoft techs had previously had me rename my SoftwareDistribution folder.
When I try to save the Windows Update Agent program I get message
"installation failed- error 0x800b0100"
