    I also had this problem, and could not register the files. I solved it when
    I checked services, saw that Com + Events System had been mysteriously
    disabled. Once I restarted that I was able to get the updates with no

    Hi, I am running Windows XP. This computer is really new. It was working up
    until June 3, 2005. That is the last date for automatic updates. Thanks again.

    FYI: Most updates now are released as group on the second Tuesday of every
    month. A new batch of Automatic Update was released a week ago (12 Jul-05).
    The previous batch was released on 14 Jun-05.

    How to configure and use Automatic Updates in Windows XP:

    To access Services in WinXP:

    Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > OK

    In the resulting window, scroll down to & right-click on COM+ Event System >
    Properties > Startup type

    If it's Disabled, choose Manual instead (should work; if not, choose
    Automatic), OK your way out and reboot.

    Hello again, it still doesn't work. I tried what you suggested, nothing.
    Any other tricks?

    As you added your problem to someone else's ongoing thread here, perhaps
    you'd best give us a better idea than "I have the same problem".

    See this page and then post back with the
    information we might use to assist you.

    Here are some general troubleshooting ideas, Holly:

    1. See the "Need more help? Tell us what problem you are having" section of;en-us;6527

    2. You cannot install some updates or programs;en-us;822798

    3a. Check Windowsupdate.log (%windir%\Windowsupdate.log) for errors
    associated with the download/install.

    How to read the Windowsupdate.log file:

    3b. Compare errors to those listed here: and/or go to > click on Help and Support link in left
    pane > Solve problems on your own.
