Hello,

You can try the following and it should clear it up.

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder in C:windows (it will be recreated next time you visit Windows Update again)
You will lose your history but that's not important.
If the above step doesnt clear it up continue below:
Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service. ( with Vista it may read Windows
Update)
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.

Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
a. Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%, and then click OK.
b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.

Retry Windows Update before reading further.

If you need to reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become
corrupt):-

Follow this article (the article is listed the download for the old client) -
The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan
for updates when
you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows
XP Service
Pack 1

    Keep getting this error message ...an i know my copy is the real thing took it out of th ebox last night. error code 0xc004e003


    Dear sir
    If you want my advice; just reinstall windows.
    This error hard to handle since it is in the core of Vista and now you cant access control panel or updae to fix it.

    So reinstall, register; and try to keep your system up to date with windows update.

    Computer won't load Windows


    Hello,
    1. What the motherboard you had been using
    2. Whats the HDD

    Check that your motherboard supports the higher HDD
    Upto 80GB HDD Windows can load the XP with servicepack 1
    But after 80GB HDD supports the WIN XP with service pack 2 CD only.  Try to install with the winxp having above sp1.

    Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!
