cannot access WINDOWS UPDATE successfully . . . keeps soliciting New!Get Microsoft Update today!

    I am running Windows XP SP3 Home Edition on 1 of 4 PC's and it's been
    updated through early April 2011. Prior to this, accessing Windows
    Updates (via http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us)
    worked fine, near perfect, for over a year - using Internet Explorer
    6. Note, I prefer not upgrading to Internet Explorer 8 - so please
    avoid suggesting same - read below to understand why.

    Recently, around the middle of April 2011, each time I went to Windows
    Update, the page initially appears and I can briefly see the 2 buttons
    (of which I always chose the CUSTOM button), but within 1/2 second,
    the screen blinks and resolves to state "New! Get Microsoft Update
    today!"

    I have no interest in Microsoft Update for my PC running XP SP3 Home
    Edition because my other 3 PC's, all running Windows XP SP3
    Professional with Internet Explorer 6 are having no problems with
    Windows Update. This is also why I prefer not upgrading to Internet
    Explorer 8 on my PC running XP XP3 Home Edition.

    Because my 3 PC's running XP Professional XP3 are not having problems
    accessing Windows Update with Internet Explorer 6, it seem reasonable
    to conclude that this is an XP SP3 Home Edition problem. Or, perhaps
    its an Internet Explorer 6 where some setting has changed.

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Internet Explorer 6, but the
    problem remains. I tried all DEFAULT settings, and the problem
    remains.

    I cannot successfully access Windows Update to update my PC running
    Windows XP SP3 Home Edition and I want to fix this problem.

    Any help or suggestions are sincerely appreciated.

    Thank you.

    * Does Automatic Update function on this system or do you exclusively
    use Internet Explorer to obtain Windows Updates ? *


    Please try another attempt to access Windows Update using IE 6.
    If/when this fails, close Internet Explorer.

    Copy and paste at least the *last* 50 or so lines of the
    WindowsUpdate.log into your reply, please -

    Thanks for you reply, MowGreen. :eek:)

    I always set Automatic Updates to DISABLED (or Turn off Automatic
    Updates) on my PC's, and I use IE6 for updates (where prior to
    launching to WU, I enable the following Services . . . Automatic
    Updates (wuauserv) and Background Intelligent Transfer Service
    (BITS). When finished updating, I return both BITS and wuauserv to
    DISABLED. This method has worked perfectly for a decade on all PC's,
    and should continue to work flawlessly. If you can't tell, I prefer a
    lean Services machine.

    Here are the last 50 lines . . .

    Sure are a lot of Setup Update NOT required lines.

    I have not begun comparing the two, but will shortly after posting
    this follow-up.

    Thanks again, MowGreen!

    While I do not know what to look for, after a brief comparison between
    XP SP3 logs, one line stands out . . . Retrieved 1 persisted download
    jobs.

    I do not know what this means, so I checked the HISTORY. The status
    of the last 190 updates all show GREEN checkmarks. I have to go back
    to October 17, 2010 to find one RED X and that update was resolved
    later the same day.

    After every update or whenever I finish using IE6, I always delete all
    cookies in the TIFF, and delete all files in the TIF - including all
    offline content, and I clear History.

    As a check, I ran WU a 2nd and 3rd time and the same 50 lines appear
    unchanged, including . . . Retrieved 1 persisted download jobs.

    Hopefully, to you, MowGreen, there is something more obvious that
    needs correcting.

    Thank again.

    You're most welcome, Anna. I see nothing that indicates an updating
    issue in those and the subsequent entries you posted from the WU.log.

    Would you please go back up *above* this entry ( note the time ) and see
    if there are any WARNING or FATAL entries ?

    The issue may be related to MS' desire to kill off IE6 ASAP as it is a
    woefully, insecure browser.

    FWIW, you can set AU to " Notify " you about updates via the Automatic
    Updates applet in Control Panel and NO updates can be downloaded nor
    installed until you Approve them.

    For the Services, BITS can be set to Manual when you use IE to access
    Windows Update.

    Thank you for your follow-up, MowGreen. :eek:)

    Regarding WARNING and FATAL entries (where, for perspective, I am
    including one of my XP Professional SP3 results)...

    What I find interesting is the above FATAL entries have been present
    since my very first visit to Windows Update with this PC (over 4 years
    ago). At that time, when I first saw them, I posted to the MSWU
    newsgroup and the replies I received from MS-MVP's was simple - they
    can be ignored, they are meaningless, they have no bearing on your
    machine or WU's.

    0x80080008 CO_E_SERVER_STOPPING
    Object server is stopping when OLE service contacts it

    Whomever informed you that this return code is meaningless is incorrect,
    Anna. The BITS service ( DM, which stands for Download Manager)is
    failing to download updates. However, it will download updates if an
    interface (BITS) is Started *after* this entry appears.
    The AU service tries more than once to establish the interface (BITS).

    I suggest you try setting the AU service to Automatic *and* open the AU
    applet in Control Panel and set that to Turn automatic updates off.
    Set BITS to Manual in the Services console.

    Then reset Windows Updates components by downloading and *saving* the
    Fixit on this page -

    How do I reset Windows Updates components ?
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

    When the download completes close *all* open programs and browsers.
    Run MicrosoftFixit50202.msi and choose it's Default mode.
    When the Fixit has finished running restart the system and see if the MU
    notice appears when visiting the WU web site.

    NOTE: By doing the above the Windows Update history you see on the WU
    web site will no longer be present. You can preserve it, if needed, by
    copying DataStore.ebd from Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore to
    another location. However, there is the possibility that DataStore.ebd
    is corrupted or damaged and that's why your system is receiving the MU
    notice when hitting the WU web site.

    I suggest you try setting the AU service to Automatic *and* open the
    AU applet in Control Panel and set that to Turn automatic updates
    off. Set BITS to Manual in the Services console.

    Did as you instructed - noting that the AU applet in Control Panel has
    always bee set that to Turn automatic updates off.

    Downloaded and ran MicrosoftFixit50202.msi using the Defualt Mode.

    Rebooted, opened IE6 and IT WORKED, MowGreen! YOU DID IT!! No more
    MU screen. :eek:)) Thank you so very, very much!!!

    For the record, here are my latest results...

    AFTER CLICKING Review and install updates, NO CHANGE (most likely due
    to the fact that I refused to install Malicious Tool and there were no
    other High Priority updates at this time).

    NEXT, as I have always done, AFTER...

    - deleting all cookies in the TIFF
    - deleting all files in the TIF (including all offline content)
    - clearing History
    - closing IE6
    - disabling wuauserv and BITS services

    ....where, as you can see, the identical FATAL entries appears once
    again.

    BTW, the MVP whom told me I could ignore has an ID that rhymes with CK
    Stare.

    On a related note, you will be please to learn that my HISTORY was not
    erased or deleted. While at the WU site, I clicked Review your update
    history - and all 366 updates, dating back to November 2008, are
    present. :eek:)

    Excluding whatever problem may still exist regarding the above FATAL
    entries, eveything appears to be back to normal efficiency,
    MowGreen.

    Thank you again for helping me resolve this problem. The Microsoft
    FIX worked PERFECTLY and will now be a fabulous tool to have on hand
    in the event I experience the same or similar problem in the future.

    With kindest regards,

    AnnaG :eek:)

    Are you sure the MVP's name wasn't Louie CK ? :)
    Sorry I could not respond without trimming the content of your previous
    post.



    It's your choice but, please note that the Windows Malicious Software
    Removal Tool is updated each month and is aimed at the most prevalent
    malware according to data sent to Microsoft from infected computers.
    It's an extremely worthwhile to have the Tool scan an XP system at least
    once a month since XP is *easily* the most exploited OS.

    At the very least, running the MRT can detect hidden malware ( a root
    kit or root-kit like ) that is installed by one of the continually
    emerging Rogue Security 'Programs', such as the ones listed here -
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/

    It may not be able to remove them in all cases but it does a fine job
    detecting and sometimes, neutering this type of malware, so that it can
    be removed with Malwarebytes Anti-malware or another malware removal
    tool specifically aimed at Rogue 'Programs'.

    You're mowst welcome and I'm glad to hear that updating is working as
    *you* want it to.
