    Hello to the whole community here.

    About the problem in subject, the only solution that worked for me,
    apart all the suggestions I've seen here, was to completely delete the
    IE's cache, history, et. (cookies included).

    Hope this will help all of U 2.

    Credits go to "" who originally wrote this
    solution in an Italian newsgroup dedicated to Windows XP.

    Thanks to MS for the usual totally unexpected gifts in crucial
    functions which make the OEM SysAdmin's spend hours to find a solution
    to such a silly problem, trying to imagine whatever sort of HW/SW
    conflicts especially after the installation of the (in)famous SP2.

    And real thanks to all the real world users out there who are always
    the only resource to help their similars survive in this modern times
    jungle.

    Regards,

    E=MC^2 (Erio "U2?!" Michelangelo C.)

    Do NOT uninstall anything. It's a server problem and will go away.

    If it is a server problem... why is the error I am receiving (0x80244010)
    limited to just one machine in my network?

  7. Did you try cleaning out the SoftwareDistribution directory
    using Torgeir's instructions?

    (loop snipped)


    The unusual loop evident in your log could be caused by corruption.
    Apparently wuauclt.exe reads binary data out of it (e.g. .edb files)
    so if they were old or corrupt and not identified as such I can imagine
    any number of bizarre things could happen.

    Hello to all,
    I tried a lot of recommended things, but E=MC^2 s tip was the only thing
    that helped: Deleting IE-cache, cookies, history corrected the problem.

    What I also did, but without success (But it's not senseless to have a
    current system):
    Installing .Net Framework 1.1
    Installing MDAC 2.8 (Microsoft Data Access Components)
    Updating MS Parser to SP 4
    Installing MS-Patch KB842773

    Well, Thomas... you're dealing with "doctors" at MS, never forget.

    Another terms exists which is "workaround" to patch some problems
    until they're fixed in an "official" way... as far as I know, it
    didn't happend to any of my customers anymore since when I made them
    and I did myself erase the darn temproary files in the IE's disk
    cache.

    So... call it a solution or not, but it works as a workaround... and
    considered MS doesn't pay me for the time I invest correcting their
    troubles, I feel perfectly find with any WORKING workaround anybody
    would give me to go ahead and don't have headaches doing my job.

    Regards,

    E=MC^2 (Erio "U2?!" Michelangelo C.)

    p.s.: despite that, I too am always interested knowing what caused
    what... has anyone discovered the real cause of such "feature"? Was it
    a server problem at MS's side for real? Or is there any "tech inside"
    we SysAdmins should know and that MS didn't share (yet)? TIA w y'all
