  3. Hi Sheila,

    Give this a try and see if it solves the problem..............

    Go to Start>Run and key in:
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    Click on OK or hit ENTER, wait a few seconds, then click on OK in the
    RegSvr32 dialogue box.
    Now, open the registry editor (Start>Run key in regedit then click on OK or
    hit ENTER)
    Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv
    Look for a DeleteFlag value and, if it exists, right-click on it and select
    Delete.


    Now see if if you can successfully update.
    If not, then:

    Go to Start>Run and key in:
    net stop wuauserv
    Then click on OK or hit ENTER
    When the Automatic Updates service has stopped, use My Computer or Windows
    Explorer to navigate to the C:\Windows or C:\WINNT (if C:\Windows does not
    exist) folder. Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SDOLD
    Go to Start>Run and key in:
    net start wuauserv
    Then click on OK or hit ENTER

    Now try the Windows Update site and see if the error has been resolved.



    Regards,

    I have the same problem, but do not have a DeleteFlag value in the
    registry. So, I tried to direct the auto update to stop and to rename
    the Software Distribution folder "old", but none of that worked. The
    auto update service is stuck in stopping mode, meaning that the
    Software Distribution folder is in use and cannot be renamed. Is there
    a workaround here?

    I tried Torgeir Bakken's recommendation, but the reinstallation o
    AutoUpdate isn't taking. The update service isn't showing up in th
    registry. Any ideas

  7. Go to Start>Run and key in:
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    Click on OK or hit ENTER, wait a few seconds, then click on OK in the
    RegSvr32 dialogue box.

    After performing the above, does wuauserv appear in the registry?

    Patti: Thanks. I followed another recommendation from Torgeir (entered
    the specific dlls for the update service) and that got auto update back
    in the registry. However, when I tried to run Microsoft Update after
    doing this, I was able to get into the scan, but then it converted to
    an access denied message. I managed to stop the auto update service in
    order to rename the Software Distribution folder "old," but I still got
    blocked from renaming because it is being used by another service (or
    least I'm surmising that's the case). Any further thoughts?

    Thanx so much for the help. All sorted! And especially for giving it step
    by step.
    Some of us are a little .......... when it comes to computers.

    Thanx again.

  11. Perhaps a look at the contents of your WindowsUpdate.log file would help
    diagnose the problem. Take note of the date and time prior to accessing
    Microsoft Update. When you receive the access denied message, close the
    Windows Update window and navigate to C:\Windows folder. Locate and open the
    WindowsUpdate.log file (where WindowsUpdate is one word in the filename).
    Copy the contents that reflect the date and time that you last accessed the
    update site and paste those contents into a reply post here.

    Hi Patti,

    I have had numerous WU problems that also affect SMS. I had not encountered
    this particular one before, and your post helped me fix the problem in a
    matter of minutes. Thanks so much for a very helpful post.

    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll - this solves the problem but only temporarly. I got a
    laptop and almost everytime i'm switching to stand-by state i get the message
    that Automatic Updates are off, and can't turn them on...

    Any suggestions??
