You receive error code: 0x80070646, error code: 646, or error code: 1606 when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update
Windows Update Error Code 646 occurs when the Windows files are damaged or the system structures are broken. This error is also among the many problems that require attention as it can destabilize the computer operating system.
Method 1 :
For Windows XP users
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
In the Programs list, click Regedit.exe. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
KB2686509 repeatedly fails with Error code 0x8007F0F4

What is this update?
The Windows Kernel Mode Driver (Win32k.sys) is responsible for loading keyboard layouts on a Windows based computer. Both security update 2676562 and security update 2686509 must be installed to protect the system from the keyboard layout vulnerabilities that are described in MSRC security bulletin MS12-034.

How does this update work?
This update enumerates all the keyboard layout files that are registered on your computer, and then it verifies that they are all in the %Windir%\System32 folder.

You may receive an error message that resembles the following when you try to install this security update:
Setup cannot continue because one or more prerequisites required to install KB2686509 failed (0x8007F0F4)

You receive this message if any registered keyboard layout files are not in the %Windir%\System32 folder. In this scenario, the computer is incompatible with the security updates.

What should I do if the installation of this security update fails with the "0x8007F0F4" error?
If you receive the "0x8007F0F4" error when you try to install this security update, check to see if the %windir%\FaultyKeyboard.log file was created on the computer.

If the %windir%\FaultyKeyboard.log file was created, follow these steps:
Open the Faultykeyboard.log file that is in the %windir% folder. This log file contains information about registered keyboard layout files that are not in the %Windir%\System32 folder. The log file will resemble the following:
Keyboard1.dll
.\Layoutfiles\keyboard2.dll
C:\Windows\System\Kbda1.dll
Note In this example, the first entry is just a file name. The second entry includes a relative path with the file name. The third entry includes a full path of the file.
Copy the files that are listed in the Faultykeyboard.log log file into the System32 folder.

How do I copy keyboard layout files into the System32 folder?

Notes
The following steps must be performed by an administrator.
%Windir%\System32 is a trusted folder. Therefore, make sure that any files that you copy into this folder are trusted by your organization. For example, the file should be provided to by a trusted software vendor.
Do not move keyboard layout files into the %Windir%\System32. Make sure that you copy the files when instructed instead of moving the files.

Use any of the following methods to copy the keyboard layout file into the System32 folder:
For any entry in the Faultykeyboard.log log file that uses a file name (and not full or relative path), locate and then copy the file into %Windir%\System32 folder. (Do not move the files.)
For any entry in the Faultykeyboard.log log file that uses a relative path, use either of the following methods:
If the entry exists in either of the following registry subkeys, you must locate the file on the hard disk, and then copy the file into the %Windir%\System32 folder:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts
If the entry does not exist in the previously mentioned registry subkeys, you must contact your software vendor to resolve the issue.

How do I run-register or remove keyboard layouts from my computer?
Consider removing any keyboard layout files that do not come from a trusted software vendor.

Notes
The following steps must be performed by an administrator.
Before you remove any keyboard layout files, verify that no trusted applications on the computer require the keyboard layout file.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
Delete any registry entry that references the keyboard layout file in the following registry subkeys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts
Delete the keyboard layout file.

Method 2 :
Work around the issue manually
To do this, follow these steps:
Determine whether the registry entry "IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout" or the registry entry "ScanCode Map" exists under the following registry subkey. Either of these registry entries may cause the installation of this security update to fail.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard layout
Back up this registry subkey. To do this, click Export on the File menu, and then save the .reg file to a safe location, such as a disk or a USB storage device.
Delete the registry subkey.
Install the security update that is described in this article.
Restore the registry entry (the .reg file) that you saved in step 2. To do this, double-click the .reg file that you saved in step 2, and then click Yes in the dialog box that appears.

Microsoft Windows Vista - Review
Windows Vista is Microsoft's new client operating system, which is just beginning its long journey to replace XP. 
Incidentally, I wish that I had thought of Microsoft Vista's new catch phrases: 'Bringing Clarity to your world', or 'Smart meets beautiful.'
Error message after you apply update 973879: "Stop error code 0x0000007e" or "Stop error code 0x00000050"
Install this update if you are receiving a "Stop 0x0000007E" error message when you try to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 on a computer that has multiple processors.
Please use the below link if you experience the problem for any of our customer's computer:

This method applies only to updates for Windows. Updates for Office do not create this log file.
You must know the Knowledge Base (KB) article number that corresponds to the update. If you do not know the KB number of the update that you tried to install, you can see the number in the list of updates that are available for installation in Windows Update.

After you have the KB number, click Start, click Run, type %Windir%\KBnnnnnn.log, and then press Enter.

How to Fix ERROR 641 – Windows Update Error Code
The solution to these problems is perhaps an over working system rather than an under- performing one.
