    Hi friend,
    When you are at the receiving end of this caution it means something severe is happening or shall i say happend to your system. Your operating system has developed an fatal error which rendered your operating system out of order.

    You can try to fresh download those updates and try to reinstall them to the system. probably you will be unsuccessfull.

    Try to reinstall the Operating System and that will do. in case reinstallation fails try to remove the old installation and then install the windows freshly that will surely do.
    Hope your problem will be solved.

    You receive a "0x80070490" error code when you use Windows Update or
    Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates

    Try reseting the update components - use the Mr Fixit here :
