    Windows Update error 8007000b
    If you receive error 8007000b when you try to install Windows Vista updates,
    the Windows file system transaction log has become corrupted. The transaction
    log is used by the Windows file system to recover when a file error occurs.
    To correct this update error, you need to clear the log. Here's how:
    To clear the file system transaction log
    1. Click the Start button . In the Search box, type Command Prompt, and
    then, in the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run
    as Administrator.
    2. In the command prompt window, type fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\.
    (This assumes that C: is the drive in which Windows Vista is installed. If
    Windows is installed on another drive, change the drive letter accordingly.)
    3. Restart your computer.
    4. Download and install the update again.

    Create a new shortcut on the desktop. (rightclick/NEW/Shortcut) put in CMD.
    Rightclick it to 'run as admin'
    You can pin that to the start menu, or put it in QuickLaunch

    Start>Search Box>type: cmd

    Now look UP. You will see the cmd in the area above. This is where you want
    to right-click and choose "run as Administrator".

    Vista Rule #1.
    Even if you have an Administrator account, you normally operate with the
    powers of a normal user.
    You still need to invoke your superpowers when needed, like Popeye and his
