    I have Windows XP SP2 and Windows Update worked just fine. When I upgraded
    to Microsoft Update, however, I had problems. First I got some error
    (0x0800A01AE) which I resloved with the troubleshooter. I had to register a
    handfull of dll's. Now when I initiate Microsoft Update when it starts
    searching for available updates, it just keeps going and going. I left it
    for like, 30 mins, and when I got back it was still looking for available
    updates. Anyone out have the same problem, or know how to fix it?

  2. Try registering the following:

    Click Start, select Run and type (pressing enter after each one and wait for the
    success message):

    net.exe stop wuauserv
    Press Ok

    Repeat for the following:
    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll
    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 msxml3.dll
    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 atl.dll

    net.exe start wuauserv
