# Possible Fix for Windows Updates - Administrator related error

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by jv, May 5, 2004.

I renamed the file C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate t
C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate_
Ran the update again and C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate was reinstalled
Update ran smoothly

Been working on this since 4/26/04. Feel like an idiot 'cuz one of the solutions was to consider a corrupt file/folder
Should have tried this earlier. Anyway, if everything goes well for the next couple weeks, I'll delete the C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate_x folder

Hope this helps all who had similar problems

"C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate_x
Ran the update again and THE FOLDER "C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate" was AUTOMATICALLY reinstalled
Update ran smoothly

If everything goes well for the next couple weeks, YOU CAN delete the "C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate_x" folder

Hope this helps all who had similar problems
