    This error code occurs when trying to custom load updates. Also when auto
    updates does decide to work, it doesn't always when rebooted at a later date.
    Why are my settings not being saved???

    Hi, I had the same problem and installing these libraries helped.
    Many thanks!

  4. Harish,

    Could we please have either a correction of some apparent syntax
    errors in this script or an explanation of how they can possibly work?
    Has anybody tested it by avoiding use of the "silent" switch (/s)?

    I have posted about this before.
    For example, here is an extract of a comment I made when Torgeir
    used it:

    <copy of my reply>


    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?

    This solution works for me,

    I couldn't get automatic updates and windows-update working (although it
    said it was turned on, it wasn't)

    After running this batch my computer started downloading updates at ones.
    Problem occured after removing some though virusses.

    Thanks for the solution.

    As far as I'm concerned, you're a genius. I don't notice any immediate bad
    effects from the 'patch', but my updates are downloading as I write this,
    just moments after running the batch file. Thanks for sharing your expertise!

    Sweet! Fixed windows update for me! But what does registering all of those
    DLLs do? Do they need to be registered in order for WU to determine whether
    they need to be updated?

    I tried this with no luck, I am also having problems with windows firewall
    (it won't stay on). Norton auto protect will not stay on either. And when I
    tried to set automatic updates in windows it won't stay on. I've scanned for
    spyware and viruses and found nothing. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
