    running Windows XP for tablet pc SP2 on HP TC1100. Above error occurs when
    using Microsoft update site. Downloading patch manually from Microsoft site
    reults in 'access is denied' error when executing. I have admin rights.
    Any suggestions?

    Same problem I have had and spent 50 hours on the phone with MS, with still
    no fix...

    Open support calls to fir windows update.
    Only many people complaining about their brtoken software will make them
    want to do something.
    Windows update is broken by the last round of updates, evident by the
    massive increase in posted issues with it over the last two weeks.

  5. Do you have by any chance installed and running a Personal Firewall
    Software other than the one included in Windows XP?

    I do, I'll try disabling and installing again. Thanks for the idea.

    Never mind, it was already disabled and that doesn't solve my problem.
    Neither does mucking in the registry as suggested above. I really don't want
    to call Microsoft but I guess I'll have to!

    I got the same unhelpful error message (Access Denied... TO WHAT?
    MICROSOFT!) when running this update on one of my W2K SP4 boxes (the
    other worked OK), and also the very, very, scary "Windows 2000 has been
    partially updated and may no longer work" dialogue box at the end.

    I executed the secedit command mentioned in one of the links from a
    previous poster, made sure my virus scanner and firewall were disabled,
    and the update then applied successfully...

    secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb

    Yes, and uninstalling it does not fix the issue.
    This was item 3 on the list of 300 things I have done to debug this...

    I tried this about 20 times to no avail.

    please open a support call.
    In the meanwhile (500 hours), please see what is different between the two
    machines in terms of hardware and software, and share it here.
    We can do better than their engineers, I'll bet.

    Replying to my own post...

    One small downside found so far... The Messenger service had been
    restarted by the secedit command. I started getting lots of inbound
    UDP hits on port 1026. Disabling the Messenger service again has again
    stopped these Messenger spams.

  14. That's astonishing, since uninstalling the PFW (at least temporary)
    fixed the issue for more than one user in the German Windows XP

    Let me please know *which* Personal Firewall Saftware you've/had
    installed in which version. Any AntiVirus software running in the
    background? Which one?

    Does help eventually?

    We don't know yet of the other 299 things you've tried in the meantime ;)

  15. Which one on which version?
    Please try it again after *uninstalling* the PFW.

    Do you have access to the registry (Start -> Run -> Regedit)?
