From Microsoft:

 

This issue can be caused by the corrupted Windows Update temporary folder or

incorrect permission settings. Please refer to the following steps to

troubleshoot the issue.

Step 1: Reload the Update temporary folders.

===================================

One possible cause is that the temporary folder for Windows Update contains

corrupted files. Let's erase all the files there to get the system clean.

1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following

command in the opened window.

 

Net stop WuAuServ

 

2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.

3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.

4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following

command in the opened window.

 

Net start WuAuServ

 

Step 2: Active and log in Vista administrator

======================

1. Click Start, click All Programs, please find and open Accessories

folder.

2. Please right-click on Command Prompt item and select Run as

administrator.

3. Please type the following command line in to the coming window.

 

net user administrator /active:yes

 

Note: There is a space between Administrator and /active:yes.

 

4. Please log off the current account and log in Administrator account

appears on the welcome screen.

 

Then try updating.

I followed it exactly, twice, and it still doesn't work. Same old error message.

regsvr32 Mssip32.dll

Only the bottom 2 succeded. The other 3 came up with this error message:

The Module (Any of the top 3) was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

For more information about this problem, search online using the error code as a search term.

I also still couldn't get the Windows Update to work.

Can you try installing them one at a time? You may also need to manually download and install the updates instead of doing it through Windows Update. I just had this problem with an XP SP3 update and that solved it.

Wait...how are your updates in the future? Oh never mind different date format :wizard:

 

Have you scanned your computer for viruses? Some can stop windows updates.
