Hi,

I need your help, guys.

I have been having problems with window installer. It will not allow to install any updates or programs, software or something. Everytime I tried to install any updates or programs, I get error 641. I have tried everything I read, but nothing works.

Please Help. I don't what to have the entire system reboot to factory setting unless there is no other choice. Thanks.

This might be a problem with WU itself. Try this fix it solution (http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update/). Was this an upgrade install? If so that was the first problem.

Be advised the next beta, Win 8 RP, will be released in early June. This next beta release will require a Custom (Clean) install. You will not be able to upgrade to this next beta. Be prepared.
