    Firstly, you should restart your PC and then again check for update again, you will see icon of update at notification area and if not seen then go to start button now, click All Programs and select Windows Update. The another method says restart your PC in safe mode with networking support and install update. Restart your PC and start pressing the F8 key after getting logo of your PC manufacturing company. Select option Safe mode with networking. Now, install the updates. Last method, follow the procedure:

    -> Open Run dialogue box and type 'msconfig'
    -> Click on Msconfig.exe under Programs section
    -> Now, select Boot tab under System Configuration
    -> Click on Safe boot check box, and then Network and ok
    *Dial up connection doesn't work to Safe mode with networking option

    -> Now, click on Restore from System Configuration and install updates
    -> Note that, after installing updates click to clear the Safe boot check box with same process, and run the windows with normal mode.

    DEAR FRIEND,


    The error 80070020 is the interfering error while updating the windows

    simply restart your computer and try again

    if you are unable to fix this issue then go this way

    first stop the update service.......and and delete the temparery updates files

    and to delete the temp files go to
    my computer

    and open the
    HOME DRIVE that is Os installed drive

    then open the
    windows folder ....and also open the software distribution folder

    after double click on
    data store folder and delete all the files from the folder

    then back to the software distribution folder and open the
    download folder

    and delete all the files from the folder

    after that restart your computer and
    login with the administrative account

    then open run and type in that
    services.msc and press ENTER key

    then select
    windows update from the list and right click on it .....and click start
