CheckSUR will try to fix certain Windows Update installation failure causes.
For instance if Windows Vista Service Pack 1 won’t install this is one way of fixing it and it’s pretty cool…
Basically, all that is entailed is downloading the .MSU file and running it. During the installation it will run the checks and store the results at these locations:
So What Does This Tool Do?
During the life of your Windows Vista PC things can go wrong at times. For instance: missing files, invalid data, inconsistent data stores, invalid characters, XML parsing error’s, incorrect parameters, out of date certificates, hardware fails and error’s writing to files to name a few.
If you have encountered a known issue that results in any of the following Windows Update errors:
0x80070002 0x8007000D 0x800F081F
0x80070246 0x8007370D 0x8007370B 0x8007370A
0x80092003 0x800B0101 0x8007371B
Then Windows Update or Automatic Update will offer the tool (KB947821) if such inconsistencies have been detected on the system.
