    Whenever I try to search for updates, the system shows the error message
    'Code 800F0900'. All the previous updates have gone through successfully. But
    I am not able to run the task for new updates.

    I am running a Windows Vista Home Premium version with SP1. Any suggestions?

    ~Dino.

  2. 0x800f0900 CBS_E_XML_PARSER_FAILURE
    unexpected internal XML parser error.

    See if running this tool resolves the error:

    AU Check (v78a)
    http://www.codeplex.com/aureset/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=17263

    Download and *save* it. After the download completes close all open
    programs and browsers.

    *** Temporarily disable the installed antivirus/security
    suite/anti-malware/3rd party softwares. This includes all services nd
    processes associated with them. Either consult the User Guide or the
    manufacturer's web site to learn how this is accomplished.
    You can use the following steps to Clean Boot Vista if the above task is
    too complicated: How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean
    boot in Windows Vista
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    *Enable* the native Vista firewall as the system must be connected to
    the net when the tool runs so that it can downloaded needed updating
    software components. ***

    Now run au_check_v78a_codeplex.exe by *right* clicking it and choosing
    'Run as administrator'. Allow it time to complete it's operation.
    Reboot afterwards.

    See if the system can update now.

    I've had the same problem and, when I tried to download from
    http://www.codeplex.com/aureset/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=17263,
    I just got the message "This project is not published yet". Any other
    suggestions? Thanks. Mike.

  4. For the 3rd time since it was published, the tool is 'under review'
    Contact me offline, Mike. Send to mowgreen
    At geemail.not com [if you can figure out the addy; if you can't, then
    it wasn't meant to be <w>]

    I have this same issue....
    Vista 64 Ultimate with all updates until 11/10/2008

    I've tried everything I could find:
    Chkdsk = OK
    Tried reinstalling the Windows Update

    Now, this AU Check tool would be wonderful, but your link to it is DEAD and
    I can't find it anywhere anywhere....
    Perhaps someone with a version can provide it???

    This is really getting very annoying..

  6. Sorry, AUCheck has been pulled for the THIRD time. However, it has not
    resolved the 800f0900 when run, so it's a moot point.
    If you want to contribute to finding a resolution for this specific
    error, suggest you compress both the WindowsUpdate and CBS.logs into a
    ..zip file and send them to me. I'll forward them along to my contact on
    the WindowsUpdate team.

    >>>it wasn't meant to be <w>]


    Please include what the installed antivirus/anti-malware programs are.
    Thanks.
