    Default Vista error codes


    Hi,



    I have a PC with came with vista home premium installed. Since February
    this year it has refused to update stating code 8024402c. I recently
    decided I would carry out a system restore to try and solve this but
    computer stated, The filename, directory name of volume label syntax is
    incorrect. (0x8007007B) It is driving me nuts. Is there anyway I can
    force it to carry out a full restore or will I have to resort to
    throwing it out of the window!

    Thanks

    Dave

    Pls try Cannot Update Windows using Windows Update or Cannot create a System Restore Point in Windows Vista. or else then you may have to Repair your Vista installation.

    Hi,

    You waited too long. At this point, I would concentrate on correcting the
    cause of the error message for Windows Update. There is free support for
    this from Microsoft here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/ph/6527#tab0

    Specifically, this article, though it doesn't mention Vista, may apply:

    Thanks for the help. I now have all 40 updates I have missed out on!
    Still can't get into System Restore though. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    As to System Restore, either the points or the index is corrupt. Disable the
    service, then reboot and restart it.
