    I tried to install the the suggested file, but it told me that the service
    pack but it said: 'the service pack version of this system is newer than the
    update you are applying. there is no need to install this update.'

    I currently have sp2 on my system. any other ideas as to how i might be able
    to get my updates working. nothing on the updates page will work, such as the
    installation history or the updates. any help would be appreciated.

  4. Hi

    OK, error 0x80070424 indicates that the BITS service does not
    exist (or is messed up).

    This command line should reinstall the BITS service, run it e.g.
    from Start/Run (line will wrap in the newsreader!):

    %SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall
    132 %SystemRoot%\inf\qmgr.inf

    If it asks for your OS/SP CD-ROM to get some files, just point it to the
    folder C:\Windows\System32 (or wherever WinXP is installed to)

    If it still doesn't work, reinstall the AutoUpdate service as well:

    This command line should reinstall the AutoUpdate service, run it e.g.
    from Start/Run (line will wrap in the newsreader!):

    %SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall
    132 %SystemRoot%\inf\au.inf

    Please post any result back here, good or bad :)

  5. Hi

    Check if the "Automatic Updates" and the BITS service are enabled
    and are possible to start.

    Start/Run --> services.msc

    Then find "Automatic Updates" in the list, and double click on it.

    Change Startup type Automatic if it is not, and press Apply.

    If the service status is "Stopped", press the Start button.

    Do the same for the service "Background Intelligent Transfer Service".

    Hi, I am having the same problem.

    When I check the services, Automatic updates was there, but it was disabled
    and wouldn't allow me to re-enable it. When I rebooted the service is now
    deleted. How do I get it back?

    Having same problem; have downloaded and installed BITS service and confirmed
    that is enabled and started; Automatic Updates are turned on in Control
    Panel, but do not show up in Services. Tried running command lines that you
    suggested, but got "installation error" messages. HELP !!!

    And from an recent post by Mark Brown [MSFT], you could try this:

    Certain required DLL files unregistered

    Action Plan
    1. open "wordpad"
    2. copy this text (below) into the "wordpad"
    3. save the "wordpad" file as "IEreg.bat" to your desktop and then "double
    click" to launch

  11. ....


    Have you tried this, e.g. without the /s switches?
    I tried to point out these last three entries previously,
    being curious and dubious about the syntax.
    Do you understand what is being attempted with that syntax?
    My guess would be that the /s switch would be just obscuring
    any errors and none of those modules would be reinitialized at all.

    E.g. I could understand this syntax for the last ones:

    regsvr32 /n /i:SspcCreateSspiReg msnsspc.dll /s
    regsvr32 /n /i:SspcCreateSspiReg msapsspc.dll /s

    but I haven't a clue what would be intended by the first.
    My best guess would be that it should be two commands
    both of which are corrupted by being mixed in one line.
    E.g. a normal re-initialization of scrrun.dll and a line
    which is given in KB279830 and is some obscure maintenance
    tool for a one-time conversion of "jobs" started by the Task Scheduler?

  14. i had this error back in october and discovered that it was part of a virus
    of the BOXED family. i downloaded the free anti-virus software called Antivir
    Guard. the updated version of this program did the trick for me. look up the
    virus and you'll understand what it does. therfore you'll be better able to
    deal with it.
