    Hi there,

    The webpage is correct and opening just fine here.

    What happens when you try to open the webpage?

    Best regards,
    Michel Denie

    OK - thanks - working now. I have read instructions and went thrpugh regedit
    process, but am not sure how to create the next step. I am not conficdent in
    case I have to reinstall the whole windows system or something! Is there any
    other way or this easier and safer than my inexperienced brain is telling me?
    Thanksfor helping me on this one.

    Hi there,

    Just follw it one step at a time; backup your registry before editing it
    however, so if it might go wrong you can put the registry back like it was
    before.
    ..

    Best regards,

    You cannot install some updates or programs
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822798

    Other suggestions -

    Suggestion 1 - Rename the Edb.log file (the hotfix installer references the Edb.log file
    and the file may be corrupted)

    1. Using Windows Explorer open the folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\CatRoot2\
    2. Right-click the Edb.log file, and then rename the file "Edb.old."
    3. Try Windows Update again from Internet Explorer.

    Suggestion 2 - Rename the CatRoot2 folder.

    1. Using Windows Explorer open the folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\
    2. Right-click the CatRoot2 folder, and then rename the CatRoot2 folder "CatRoot2old".
    3. Try Windows Update again from Internet Explorer.

    Suggestion 3 - We'll now register some DLL files just in case they have not been
    registered

    Click Start, select Run and type:
    regsvr32 licdll.dll
    When you receive the message that the DllRegisterServer succeeded, click OK. Do the same
    for the next DLL file.
    regsvr32 regwizc.dll

    Try Windows Update again from Internet Explorer.

    Suggestion 4 - are your trusted root authority certificates up to date? Do you have a
    Firewall that could be blocking Windows Update?

    Check points -

    To turn on automatic updating of trusted root authority certificates
    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...oddocs/en-us/sag_cmautorootupdt.mspx?mfr=true
    1. In Control Panel, open Add or Remove Programs
    2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
    3. Select the Update Root Certificates check box.
    4. Click Next, and then click Finish.
    Note - To open Add/Remove Windows Components, click Start, click Control Panel, click Add
    or Remove Programs, and then click Add/Remove Windows Components

    If you have a firewall installed, it can prevent your computer from connecting to the
    Windows Update server. Make sure that TCP/IP ports 80 and 443 are open in both directions.
    Make sure that your firewall is not blocking scripting functions on Web sites.

    Looking at several threads for this error and the 0x57c error (mine are in
    the same windows update log - well done for whoever showed us how to look at
    that) I concluded that something was interfering with the registers or
    preventing a register from updating propoerly.

    I run Kaspersky 7 firewall, so I turned that off and turned on the Windows
    firewall - an lo and behold it worked after about 10 attempts since last
    month!

    I did nothing else.

    eaglewhiz, I tried turning my 3rd. party firewall off and reverting to
    Windows firewall during the update process, and it worked. I had the error
    ten times or more before that.

    I read through several of these and went to web site at microsoft you
    suggested. I too had some problem opening it but I decided to try opening my
    outlook and repairing it and found there was a problem with offce Source
    Engine It was missing or disabled. I do not know what it is but when I
    followed the directions I found it was disabled. I did not know I had one let
    alone what it does or how it runs but I set it to run automatically and
    started it. I then tried to download the 7 updates I have not been able to
    run and low and behold it worked. Thank you for your advice you sent me to
    the right place.
