    After updating my 3 year old XP home (allways updatet) I received > 90
    updates. 71 failed repeatedly. Error code 80080008. After that "acronics true
    image 10" cannot find drives. After startup HDD drive is bussy up to half an
    hour and almost inoperable during that time.
    Discard updates? How?

    Try the following:-

    Click Start, select run and type the following (pressing okay after each one):-

    net.exe stop wuauserv

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll
    regsvr32 MSXML3.dll

    net.exe start wuauserv

    Thanks a lot. This is working!! 93 updates succeeded now - bravo!
    But what are we doing???? What was wrong with update? Microsoft should
    know and correct the error.

  8. Just so everyone has the article that documents this problem officially:

    Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update,
    from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after
    you repair a Windows XP installation
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

    (Try it even if you did a clean, not repair, installation.)
    (Try it even if you performed some sort of restore - not repair install.)
    (Try it even if you did an upgrade installation.)

    Do all suggested methods.

    CDRom. Downloaded 87 updates, but could not install....! Your system worked
    perfectly. Thank you vey much!

  10. aglae4 (and everyone else doing a Google Search to find an answer to their
    inability to install updates on Windows XP after performing a repair
    installation, restoration, etc...),

    Just so everyone has the article that documents this problem officially:

    Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update,
    from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after
    you repair a Windows XP installation
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

    (Try it even if you did a clean, not repair, installation.)
    (Try it even if you performed some sort of restore - not repair install.)
    (Try it even if you did an upgrade installation.)
    (Try even if you dopn't think/know for sure that the description fits.)

    Do all suggested methods, reboot after each one.

    Visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and do a CUSTOM scan for updates.
    My suggestion is not to install any Optional Hardware Updates - the Optional
    Software ones are okay... IMHO.

    other issues too. How do I reverse this?

    Your problems most likely are more than Windows Update problems -

    Will this work for Windows Vista or only for XP? I have the same problem, updates not installing for 3 months now- only occasionally/ sporadically and error messages 80080008 and 800F0826. Massive thanks for any tips.
