When i try to look for windows updates. It scans, then leaves an error 800700C1. can u tell me how to fix it?

Try the following in order:

Procedure 1:

- First, you will need to install or re-install the updated KB927891. See
here: and here for a complete fix.

- Then install the newly released 'standalone' version of Windows Update
Agent 3.0, v. 7.0.6000.374, for 32 bit machines which is available here:

It may say "Install is not needed since Windows Update Agent is
already installed." If so, then run the exe with the command line switch
/wuforce , like this:

WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

to force the install.

Now reboot. Now reboot again. (Yes, twice.)

Now go back to Windows Update - what you just did should force a
re-installation of the lastest update to the Windows Update software. Allow
this and then try your updates again.

If that doesn't fix the problem, then try

Procedure 2:

1. Go to and download Dial-a-fix
v0.60.0.24 (2006-10-27) Here's a direct download link: and a
secondary: from
that page's download section, here: .

2. Unzip it to a new folder at root with any name, e.g.

3. Now double click on Dial-a-fix.exe in that folder.

4. Click on the following:
- Options/tooltips (just to get an idea of what it does in each
:) )
- Both boxes under Prep
- The 'all' (top) box for Sections 2, 3 and 4 (which will automatically
be set when you check 3)
- In Section 3 click on 'Flush Software Distribution' and choose 'Yes'
to force the deletion of the folder.
- In Section 5, 'ActiveX controls/codecs', 'Programming
cores/runtimes', 'Explorer/IE/OE/shell/WMP', and 'Object linking libraries
(OLE)' only.
- Click 'Go' . (Some of the re-registrations may take what seems like
long time for some .dll's - Don't be impatient.)

5. Reboot. Now Reboot Again. (Yes, twice.)

Now try Windows Update again. If it still doesn't work, then re-do
Procedure 2 in Safe mode (Section 2 will be greyed out.) and then try
Windows Update again.

Error 5 error LU1812 live update error 18 Have downloaded new version of norton 360 on sony va10 computer with windows vista and each time I try to update it does not complete because of these errors. ...

Download and run the LiveUpdate fix tool from Symantec HERE

After you run the fix tool, open Norton 360, click on the "Scans" link at the top of the window, choose "Comprehensive Scan" and then click the "Go" button This will take some time, but will thoroughly inspect your computer for infections

To address your other question regarding the LiveUpdate settings, you can change the configuration to use an HTTP proxy. To do so, please follow these steps.

1. Open the "Symantec LiveUpdate" Control Panel.

2. In the LiveUpdate Configuration window, click on the "HTTP" tab.

3. Click on the radio button that says "I want to customize my HTTP settings for LiveUpdate." Enter the information for your HTTP Proxy server, click the "Apply" button, and then click the "OK" button.

Please let me know if this process resolves the issue you are having with LiveUpdate. Also, if the scan finds any infections, please let me know what is found.

If you get Error 101 after a long wait (this means an actual update is being downloaded) - then to fix it, you need use "Run as Administrator", this is probably because the updater wants to change the contents of an executable file, which is a security risk. So Vista, by default, forbids this action and blocks the program continuing - this shows up as Error 101

When you "Run as Administrator", then the updater is given permission to change the executable so it should work.
