    When I go to Windows Update page, I get "Windows Update
    Error.....Send Error No. 0x80070052". I have tried both
    of the suggested solutions in the trouble-shooter, but no
    success. When I click on the "No" button for "Did this
    help?" selection, I get a file (of 0 bytes!) to download
    or save, but it doesn't appear to do anything.
    If anyone can help, I would be very grateful.

    Sorry, Lucy,
    I should have specified it is the "Home" version of
    Windows XP.

    Hi Bob,

    I'm not sure what news reader application you're using. Reply to this post,
    select "Attach" or "Attachment" and browse to the Windows Update.log file.
    If not open the log file and copy and paste the log file information.

    Per log file, is the last time you accessed the site 8/13? I don't see
    error 0x80070052

    Please verify the WindowsUpdate folder exists and is accessible from the
    C:\program files directory

    C:\program files\WindowsUpdate

    Note: the WindowsUpdatefolder is a hidden folder you may need to unhide it.

    Tools > Folder Options
    Select View Tab
    Under "Hidden Files and Folders"
    Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders"
    Click Apply and then OK

    Thank you,
