    when i go to update one of my PC's I get this error and i made sure all
    services were running or configured how the documetnt said.

    this is what i get

    The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows services is
    not running:

    Automatic Updates (allows the site to find, download and install
    high-priority updates for your computer)
    Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (helps updates download more
    quickly and without problems if the download process is interrupted)
    Event Log (keeps a record of updating activities to help with
    troubleshooting, if needed)
    To make sure these services are running:
    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. Type services.msc and then click OK.
    3. In the list of services, double-click on Automatic Updates and then click
    Properties.
    4. In the Startup type list, select Automatic and click Apply.
    5. Verify that the Service status is started, if the Service Status is
    Stopped click on the Start Button.
    6. In the list of services, double-click on Background Intelligent Transfer
    Service (BITS) and then click Properties.
    7. In the Startup type list, select Manual and click Apply.
    8. Verify that the Service status is started, If the Service Status is
    Stopped click on the Start Button.
    9. In the list of services, double-click on Event Log and then click
    Properties.
    10. In the Startup type list, select Automatic and click Apply.
    11. Verify that the Service status is started, If the Service Status is
    Stopped click on the Start Button.

    Make sure that you have automatic updates turned on.

    Make sure that the Remote Procedure Call Locator is not disabled:
    Click Start, select Run and type in:
    services.msc
    Locate " Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator".
    If it is disabled, then right click on it, go to 'Properties', change to 'manual' and
    Apply.
    Try Windows Update Again

  3. TaurArian-
    I just wanted to thank you on what to do when a person comes up with this
    nasty error. I was cursing up a storm because I thought I had done something
    wrong when reinstalling my Window XP updates. The website www.updatexp.com
    also gave me a solution to another problem I was having about two months ago
    with a winsoc error. The fix it download for this error took care of both
    problems. Thank you so much.
