    Hi! My problem is with Windows Update (v 6). I can get to the Express\Custom
    choice window, but when I make my choice (either one, the result is the same)
    the next window shows the error code above & some sources for help.
    Following the suggestions, a search of brings up plenty on this
    error but not once mentions Windows Update - all on other programs like
    Outlook Express, Windows Media Player, etc.
    Hoping someone can help?
    PS: I'm running XP Pro with SP2
    Kind regards,

  2. Windows XP stops responding when you download updates from Windows Update:
    You receive the following error message: Initialization error 0x8007007e
    In the Windows Update.log file in the Windows directory, you may receive a message that is similar
    to the following message:
    Error IUENGINE Determining machine configuration (Error 0x8007007E: The specified module could not
    be found.)
    Your computer may stop responding after you accept the end-user license agreement.

    When using the Windows Update website you may find that the service
    FAILS to update your computer and returns a "General Error" message: 0x800A138F

    Thanks, TaurArian!
    I'm still getting the same error message. I ran SFC scannowI also ran
    regsvr32 on about 16 DLL files. All were successful except one - the
    cabinet.dll. The "DLLRegister entry point" was not found. This was after I
    ran SFC. Could this be the problem?

    PS: Thanks for the Marc Lyon article!
