Its been about 2 months since my last Window Update, and whenever I attempt to update, it says:

"Windows can not search for new updates."
"Error Code 800700C1"

Help would be GREATLY appreciated. :)

Are you signed on as Administrator?

This isn't your exact error code number, but it has been suggested as a work-around for the error code you get:

thanks.
i actually tried this and worked.
I ran command prompt (run) as administrator, and typed in sfc/scannow
later on checked on my cbs.log which you have to access through the command prompt (as a administrator)
after the scan it'll tell you the location of the log, type in the location of the log in the command prompt.
As the log opens, search for dll files that cannot be replaced/delete or has found error, then google a website that provides dll files, download the ones you need and replace them. however, in order to replace the dll files, you need to give urself authorization properties>security(tab)>advance
