    Hey folks. I tried the option below to try and fix that commonplace Windows
    update problem... but after doing step 2) listed below it said that /d was an
    invalid I couldn't really proceed. What am I futz-ing up here?

  2. Hi

    What operating system are you running (Win2k/WinXP/Win98/WinME)?

    Remove the "/d" and try the steps again from the beginning.

    I'm using WinXP Pro. If I don't use the /d it says 'invalid directory'

    Nevermind. Did the instructions correctly this time. Unfortunately, Windows
    Update still doesn't work even after doing those steps I mentioned...and
    neither does Internet Explorer half the time (pictures/some websites don't
    load). Blah.

    there's a good chance your computer has been hijacked by
    spyware/adware/trojans. try scanning with your favorite cleaner (spybot
    search & destroy, ad-aware, etc..). if it finds stuff, you're only real
    guarantee to bring your system back under your control is to reinstall from
    scratch :( if you like to live dangerously, try removing the adware with the
    tools. unfortunately, most don't do a very good job fixing your winsock LSP
    chain. i wouldn't be surprised if the beastie you have subverts your
    computer this way. if that's the case, you can try LSPfix
    ( or WinSock XP Fix (current home page
    unknown, but available from

    good luck and let us know how it goes!

    try for 2) to take out the spaces in the command... I did and it all worked
    and fixed the problem perfectly. I don't remember which spaces I took out or
    if all, but it worked any way.

    Hi, All;

    Note that what is actually typed into the Start/Run line is just CMD. (not
    'command "cmd" '). If one enters "command cmd" it will look almost the
    same, but the older will be invoked instead of cmd.exe. If you
    get "Microsoft(R) Windows DOS" on the top line then you are in the older and need to Exit. If you type CMD you will see "Microsoft
    Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]" as the top line.

    It is important to get the right one, since (as Dahorsh mentions) only CMD
    will support the /D switch for the CD command, and only there will the
    %windir% environment variable be understood.

    Did the instructions that Harish posted not work, or did those instructions
    not fix the problem?

    Have you done a Restart lately?

    The procedure decribed below worked like a charm for me.

    Having said that you may consider using the MS Management Console <Services>
    (that can be fuond in <Start><Programs><Administrative Tools> to stop and
    then start the <Automatic Updates> service instead of using
    the< net stop> and <net start> commands.

    I find typing commands into the shell to be a bit error-prone.
    Although I have not tried it myself you may also consider removing the
    <DataStore> and all its subdirectories/folders in the folder
    using Windows Explorer.
    I suggest you close all Internet-Explorer sessions before you try.

    If that works too you don't need to go to the shell at all.

    Good Luck
