This is a fairly common Windows Update error and hopefully this
article will help you resolve the problems you are having.
The 0x80070422 error code typically occurs because of a BITS error.
What causes Error 0x80070422
This error "may" occur when the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) is disabled.
In pre-XP Service Pack 2 installations this service is set to Automatic Start up type.
However..... when Windows XP Service Pack 2 is installed, it appears that in some instances the service can be disabled and this can generate the Windows Update error code 0x80070422
Microsoft have added this description to BITS:
Transfers files in the background using idle network bandwidth. If the service is stopped, features such as Windows Update, and MSN Explorer will be unable to automatically download programs and other information.
If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it may fail to transfer files if they do not have a fail safe mechanism to transfer files directly through IE in case BITS has been disabled.
To try and resolve the Windows Update error code 0x80070422, use the following tips... After each tip test to determine whether the issue is resolved.
# To resolve this problem, make sure that BITS and the Automatic Updates service are started..
