    My operating system is Windows Mellinium.
    I have two harddrives-120gb in two partitions of 10gb
    (bootdrive)with 4gb free, and 110gb with 100gb free;
    -and 10gb in two partitions of 1gb
    (swap file)with .07gb free, and 9gb with 8gb free.
    The Program Files folder is only on the bootdrive.
    I have administrative privileges to install new programs
    or updates into this system.
    Previously Windows Update worked flawlessly, always with
    Norton Anti-Virus and Internet Security running.

    I have - reinstalled the MSXML files REGSVR32
    - downloaded & installed msxml3usa.msi;
    - renamed the WindowsUpdate folder;
    - used msconfig to do a selective start-up clean
    - downloaded & installed;
    - turned off all the Norton and Symantec static
    vxd's and startup items using msconfig;
    - deleted contents of the following Windows
    folders: \TEMP,\Temporary Internet Files, \Cookies,
    and \Temporary Internet
    - added the update sites to the "Trusted Zone" of
    Internet Explorer>Properties>Security;
    - repaired Internet Explorer via Add-Remove
    - and more.
