    I get the same error. I have a brand new laptop. Updated with Microsoft
    update 2 days ago. Installed a couple games and AutoCad and now it does not
    work. Gets same message. Definately NOT hardware related in my case.
    Laptop is literally 2 days old. The three installs are the ONLY activity it
    has ever had except the previous Update session. I haven't even set up an
    email account yet. Nothing - literally.

    I am getting the exact same error on one of my domain controllers with W2K3
    SP1 installed. I'd really like to know how to correct this because I can't
    get any updates now.

    I have encountered same message and problem since switching to the new
    "Microsoft Update" service. Dummy me -- Windows Update had always worked just

    Win XP Pro SP2, standalone home PC, Norton software firewall.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Same here. Windows XP/SP2 worked fine with SP1 and even for a few updates
    after SP2, but started failing today...
