    Oh-I thought the content was in the same vein.
    In that context I needed to know where this Au check download was located.

    First let me thank you for your continued help MowGreen. Although this
    update thing is not critical (I still get automatic updates) it is plaguing
    and I'd like to resolve it.

    I cannot for the life of me recall why the lock pages in memory was set but
    I stopped it, did a cold boot, and afterward tried windows update, but still
    get the redirect.

    Hosts file is clear of any reference to windows update; it's one of the
    first things I checked and continue to check to be sure lol

    I have no lmhosts file outside the sam file.

    This was a fresh install on a new hd and has been extremely stable ..

    Here's the windowsupdate.log as you requested showing the latest run:

    OOPS!!

    I pasted from the top of the log instead of the bottom. Sorry, MowGreen.
    It's late ;)
    Some interesting errors here. Hope you can make something of it.

  6. Rose,

    The issue you describe may possibly be caused by the need to register an
    xml.dll. Give this a shot ... click Start > Run > type in the below and
    then click OK or press Enter

    regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    Try to update link in the Start Menu. If the system fails to update,
    *right* click the Windows Update link on the start menu and choose
    Properties.
    What's in the Target: line ?

  7. First let me thank you for your continued help MowGreen. Although this
    And, thank you for sticking with this thread. We may have run across a
    bug with 64 bit XP here, billcat. After looking at various MSKB
    articles, the only thing that I *think* may pertain to this issue is:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310794
    Be sure you back up the registry if you decide to try the steps listed
    under 'Reset the default security provider in Windows XP '.

    The Target Line in the start menu Update link was
    C:\Windows\Syswow64\rundll32.exe C:\Windows\SysWow64\muweb.dll.LaunchMUSite

    Acted on the Start>run regsvr32 msxml3.dll and the response was that the
    registeration of the dll was successful

    The Update Link target line remains the same information as above after this
    regsvr32
    Clicking on Find Target in this update link property sheet goes to the
    C:\Windows\Syswow64\rundll32.exe

    When I used that start up link it starts out using the path which includes
    V6 - http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us
    It is there long enough in the browser bar that I can copy and paste that
    path with V6 but it quickly redirects to
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

    | RoseW, I found it doing a google for AU Check (v78a)

    Yes, I googled and found it, downloaded. Haven't used it yet- If I search
    for wuauclt.exe the only result is from a prefetch file. dated 11/14.08 I
    don't see a wuauclt.exe listed and searching on that produces the prefetch
    item.

    An interesting turn of events when I tried to "Reset the default security
    provider in Windows XP" .. I do not have the Cryptography\Providers keys
    under either HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\ or
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\

    Could those keys be elsewhere in xp x64? I looked but couldn't find them.
    I know that registry changes exist between 32 and 64 bit flavors but I
    thought it was limited to how software is handled under local machine.

    Also I notice now that the "Administrators Only" error is recurring at
    windows update .. *sigh*

  11. A file is redirecting the system to the v4 site. Possibly, the self
    update file, wuredir.xml. Here's the link to AU Check that I forgot to
    include [Doh !] previously:
    http://www.codeplex.com/aureset/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=17263

    If you already have it, use the instructions previously supplied as in
    regards to security software/3rd party firewalls prior to running it,
    Rose. Restart afterwards and the system *should* be able to update now,
    key word being *should*. <w>

    Re. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310794
    I gave a cursory read-over of the information under "Reset the drive letter
    of the system drive" and that reminded of something that may have to do with
    this problem. When I installed the system I didn't have drivers that were
    recognized by windows. I forget what the error was but I allowed install to
    continue anyway until sometime later when I was able to find updated, working
    drivers. In order to enable AHCI without reinstalling windows I had to pull
    the boot drive and temporarily connect it as an external eSATA drive. The
    drivers were then easily installed and I could make adjustments to the bios
    accordingly. Swapping the drive back to internal SATA, however, apparently
    changed something in the mbr and I was asked to revalidate windows. I don't
    know whether this marked the beginning of the windows update problem or not
    because it could have been some time before I noticed it.

  13. I do not have the Cryptography\Providers keys
    Those keys don't exist on my XP Pro box either. So, they're not what's
    causing the issue. What you posted below is the most probable cause.
    That's why Windows needed to be reactivated. The fix for this is risky,
    billcat. I'd hate to recommend it and then have the system fail to boot:
    How to restore the system/boot drive letter in Windows
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223188

    Doing the above may retrigger activation, too. Suggest you check to see
    if \DosDevices\C: is set correctly but do *not* edit the subkey without
    reading the " WARNING " under Summary and
    Unable to log on if the boot partition drive letter has changed
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/249321/

    Frankly speaking, the *safest* method is to just wipe and reinstall.

    MowGreen, you've helped a great deal and I appreciate it. I've learned a
    couple of things here that have proved valuable. I'm actually itching to try
    this restoration of the boot drive letters lol but I'd rather wait until the
    system actually needs a wipe when I won't mind (so much) having to reinstall.
    As mentioned the system is very stable as it is and windows update just
    isn't that big a problem since automatic updates work fine. I'll keep you up
    to date when it happens by dropping a note in the thread and until then,
    thanks a lot for your efforts. Cheers :)

    Followed instructions shutting down Virus scanner and Tea Timer from Spybot
    Actived the AU check-
    downloads were successful, install was successful.
    Clicking on the Update link in the start menu went to the V6/default address
    The page was a long time loading and I think it was just busy.
    The update log indicates the X64 system is successfully updated.
    Contents in the SoftwareRedistribution/Wuredir show no change in date or
    size.
    The registry information did not change either.

    Overall, I believe things are in order at the moment and if I cannot get to
    see the Windows Update page its not a major issue.

    Thank you for the directions. I'll not apologize for tagging into this
    thread because I was being redirected to a different address and now there
    is not redirection.

    NB: If you don't fully understand what Tea Timer does and how it does it,

    Yes I had downloaded it and after reading the post instructions did the
    install this afternoon
    | What anti-virus application is installed and is your subscription current?
    Shut off the resident scanner from AVG8
    | Did you fully disable Spybot Tea Timer? See

    Yes I shut off the Spybot Tea Timer

    | NB: If you don't fully understand what Tea Timer does and how it does it,

    I understand about Tea timer

    I mean that when I clicked on the Microsoft Update link the connection would
    start with one path which included V6 and then it would change to V4
    (M.Green used the word 'redirected')
    Now after using The Aureset the path does not change and I arrive at the
    update page.
    The automatic downloads were occurring it was just that the Microsoft update
    page would not load and it did not display an error code. Only a text notice
    'This page cannot be displayed'
