    Code 8E5E0147 - Windows Update encountered an unknown error

    Code 8E5E03FB - Windows Update encountered an unknown error


    I get both of these error warnings when i try and install the updates.. I've
    tried numerous times to install them and they still come up as unknown
    error.... Anyone know why or how to fix this?

    Thanks

    I also had 3 differrent critical updates that I cant install; only now
    instead of an error code or reason it just sends me here or knowledge base as
    if it doens't even have a clue what the problem is. I tried the UPDATE
    MANAGER and it done nothing it didnt install either I guess. But I'm using
    windows XP home edition not vista.
