81003004 and 81003005 are quite similar errors and increasingly common these days with Y! 9.0 being so popular. I suffered the same error and I'm finding more and more that the only similarity between people who've had this error would be that all of them had the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework installed. I don't know why or if this is a cause but for me this happened each time I re-installed Visual Studio which requires 2.0. On XP one of the AU downloads is 2.0 as well so anyone upgrading to XP would eventually run into this error. Mine happens to be working now, thank God, but even Y! engineers know of no fix for this problem yet. They'll instruct you to contact your device manufacturer. In the mean time if it's worth it you may consider backing up your data and keeping a log of your installed programs as I do. Use maybe a USB drive or similar memory device and label folders 1-? and in those folders place your files such as browser bookmarks, etc. Then in a notepad document just write down the line 1-? what location to put the given files in. Makes a re-install of an OS very simple. You may also try an uninstall of the .NET Framework just to see if that's your problem. :)
