    I'm with Reanne - I've got the above error code when trying to download an
    update. Can somebody help please but it needs to be in easy to understand
    English, not too much tech talk please.

  2. Who is "Reanne"? You may not realize you started your own conversation
    thread and others may access this conversation differently than however you
    are accessing things to get to this message/post this message. I did a
    quick search in this newsgroup and found no recent original post by
    "Reanne".- so your comment doesn't help explain your problem much.

    All we know right now is the error you get when 'trying to download an
    update'. If we take that at face value - you could just be downloading and
    saving the update to some folder on your computer for later installation and
    the download itself is giving you that error... Or you may be misuing the
    term/expanding it beyond its meaning and downloading/installing the update.

    There error code you gave (looking it up with Google) seems to refer to:
    "The application requested data from a web site, but the response was not
    valid. For details, use Event Viewer to view the Application
    Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Bits-client\Operational log."

    What we don't know is what Operating System you are running, what service
    pack level (if any) that Operating System is updated to, if it is 32-bit or
    64-bit, what specific update you are trying to 'download', what (if
    anything) you have tried in order to attempt to repair the issue, what
    antivirus software you are using (be very specific - maker/version), etc.
    If you could provide some/all of that information (I'll explain how) -
    perhaps someone can assist.

    Start button --> RUN --> type in:
    (No "RUN", press the WindowsKey+R at the same time.)
    winver
    --> Click OK.

    That will give you (picture at top) the full name of the operating system.
    That will give you (in the test) the Service Pack you have installed.

    Some people (those with 32-bit versions of Windows XP or Windows Vista
    anyway) have said that this fixes it:

    OK, so, I only registered to reply to this message.

    Firstly, thanks to Shenan Stanley for posting the reply.

    I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and suffered error #80200053 when trying t
    install "Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows
    x64-based Systems".

    The solution suggested - visiting the page "'How do I reset Window
    Update components?' (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058)" an
    installing Fix-it worked perfectly. Upon restarting the update installe
    fine.

    So, just to let everyone know there is a solution and it (or at leas
    seems to) applies to Windows 7 64-bit
