    I have the same problem. Plus my command window does not accept the commands
    outlined in the solution offered at this web page.

    The problem defaults to C:\Documents and Settings\ (my name).

    I too am angry. I have been struggling with this for three days. I want a Mac.

    Re-read instructions - Click Start, select Run.
    Browse to the location of the downloaded file and select the file and add
    the /wuforce to the end as instructed. When you first select the file the
    name is highlighted so you need to clear that then put in a space and type
    the /wuforce.

    To me it sounds like you're opening a Command Prompt rather than using the
    "Run Command".

    I was typing a command prompt because that is what Method 1 calls for. I
    have also tried Method 2 and it does not work for me either. I checked and
    double checked the path name and still I get an error message saying Windows
    can not find the file.

  6. Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update,
    from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after
    you repair a Windows XP installation
    (Try it even if you did a clean, not repair, installation.)
    (Try it even if you performed some sort of restore - not repair install.)

    Can't figure that out?
    (Only do below if you actually cannot figure out the simple instructions on
    the web page above...)

    Get Dial-a-Fix:

    Use its options to fix:
    - Windows Installer
    - Windows Update
    - All the Registration Center options.

    Turn off the "Empty System32\Catroot 2"
    Do NOT do "Flush SoftwareDistribution".

    Then click "GO" and wait until it is done... Reboot will be needed.

    - Download/Install Windows Update v3.
    (You *may* need to install it using the command line switch "/wuforce"
    right after the reboot - immediately after logging in.)

    - Download/Install the 927891 patch.

    - Reboot.

    - Visit and scan for/install updates.

    - Come back and let us know how things went!

    Perhaps this makes it clearer -

    From MVP Mowgreen - the latest Windows Update Agent
    Save it, do NOT run it. When the download is complete close the browser. Now
    IF a message appears stating that the Update Agent is already installed,
    then go to Start > Run > click the Browse button
    Navigate to where WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe was saved and click once on it
    Click the Open button
    In the Open: line, click once on WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe
    It should now be highlighted in blue
    Click once after the last quotation mark "
    Push the Space Bar on the keyboard and enter /wuforce
    The entry should now look like this

    "C:\<locationoffile>\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" /wuforce

    Note the space after the last quotation mark and the /

    Click OK or press Enter

    This error is most likely caused by one of the following conditions:

    1. The Windows Update Temporary folder is corrupted.
    2. Windows Update Agent 3.0 is not installed properly.

    We can perform the following steps to troubleshoot this issue. After trying
    each suggestion, please go to the Windows Update site to check the result.
    Thanks for your cooperation.

    NOTE: Some third party programs can also affect the Windows Update service.
    If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet
    or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet
    connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.), I
    recommend we temporarily disable or shut them down and then try accessing the
    Windows Update site later. Please be sure to enable them again after
    completing the update process.

    Suggestion 1: Clean up Windows Update temporary folder
    1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
    command in the open window.

    Net stop WuAuServ

    2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.
    3. In the open folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.
    4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
    command in the open window.

    Net start WuAuServ

    Suggestion 2: Reinstall Windows Update Agent 3.0
    1. Visit the following link and download Windows Update Agent 3.0 to the C:\
    (Choose Save, click My Computer on left panel, Click C:\, Click Open and
    Click Save)

    2. Click Start, Click Run and copy the following command to the panel:

    C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

    Note: There is a space between "C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" and
    Best Regards,
