cant search new updates error 80070490

I have windows vista 32 bit and can't search for new updates, 
it keeps showing an error code.
I have already searched alot of solutions on this site with no luck.
The history of previous installed updates is gone, and it stated that the 
last update was installed in april 2009.

I already tried renaming softwaredistribution but that changed nothing, 
also installed KB967723 but said it isn't for my system.
System update readyness  KB947821 didn't change anything either.
Tried sfc/scannow but said there was nothing wrong

don't have an windows dvd anymore to upgrade or re-install

this is really annoying, because my pc is slowing down alot.
Internet pages keep freezing and restarting and such and i think it's 
because my updates aren't installed.

Any help?

First off, this is the *XP* General newsgroup; since you are posting 
this via a web browser, you can post this issue to the Windows Update 
newsgroup or the Windows Update 'forum':

http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.windowsupdate

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vistawu/threads

Second, when the System Update Readiness Tool (CheckSUR) was run it 
created a log at Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSur.log
Did you check that log yet ?

Third, what is the installed antivirus/security suite; is the 
subscription still current; when was the system last scanned with it and 
was anything detected ?

Fourth, the system *must* include a way for you to write a Vista 
Recovery DVD or the manufacturer must include the Vista installation DVD 
if was built by an OEM. If the DVD became damaged then the OEM will 
replace it for a fee.
Who built the system ?

When you repost this issue to a more suitable location please include a 
copy of the CheckSUR.log, the info about the installed security 
software, and who built the system.

If you consider yourself an Advanced Windows User, see this blog post.

Back-up any personal data (none of which should be considered 100% 
trustworthy at this point) then format the HDD & do a clean install of 
Windows.  Please note that a Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT 
fix this!

HOW TO do a clean install of Vista: See the "If you want to reinstall 
Windows Vista by performing a clean installation..." section of 
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Installing-and-reinstalling-Windows-Vista#section_3

After the clean install, you'll have the equivalent of a "new computer" so 
take care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting 
the machine to the internet or a local network  (i.e., other computers) and 
before using a flash drive or SDCard that isn't brand-new or hasn't been 
freshly formatted:

     4 steps to help protect your new computer before you go online
     http://www.microsoft.com/security/pypc.aspx

NB: Any Norton or McAfee free-trial that came preinstalled on the computer 
when you bought it will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is 
reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the free-trial and download/run the 
appropriate removal tool before installing any updates, Windows Service 
Packs or IE upgrades and before installing your new anti-virus application.

     Norton Removal Tool
     ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

     McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool
     http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

If these procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting 
this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and 
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.

Creating a new field based on conditions

Having problem of Outlook not receiving new e-mails

How to set Page Layout View as default when composing new eMail message?

I would like it to be "Page Layout" (or "Print Layout" in some Word version, I guess). I tried serveral things, from changing different templates (email.dot, normal.dot, mail.oft) to changing the Form for messages. But I didn't find a way to change the view here, because it's in Outlook style, not Word. And I didn't find any setting in Word for it. How can I change the default View? And which templ...

The fields i have to work with are [Employee Name], [Manager Name] and [Job Title].
