    I've been reading the posted threads regarding this issue. As suggested in a
    thread on 2-9 by Alicia, I located the pending .xml file but could not delete
    it. I tried right clicking on it and went into properties, then security in
    order to allow full control, but it would not allow me to complete that task.
    Deleting the file manually would not work either. I then went to the
    microsoft website as suggested by TaurArian and tried to update windows
    update, but that also failed, it just opened windows update on my system.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
