    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

    I renamed the fOLDER "C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate" t
    "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
