    Newly loaded machine, win xp sp3 IE7. Everytime I try to get updates I
    get this error.

    - I've tried rebooting, I can't seem to get Microsoft update to install
    on here.
    - I've also tried the directions in MS KB 971058
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058)
    - tried disabling all security software

    and I'm having no luck. Any suggestions please as to what to do next?
    Thanks.

    --->
    Google search of the error code produced this thread with a possible
    answer. Check it out: http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=45962

    This one, although aimed at Win7, might help too:

    Some of the Google finds are very old (2-3 years).

    Thanks for your reply Thai Guy. I did do a google search for my
    specific wu error code and went through both links you posted with no
    luck in fixing my issue. Thanks for your efforts. I'm open to further
    suggestions. :)

    Have you checked that 'Terminal Services' is running on the affected PC?
    To do that, Start>Run then type 'services.msc' without the quotes.
    Look down the list until you see 'Terminal Services', which should
    have 'Started' under the Status column. Startup Type should be 'Automatic'.
    If this service isn't running, WU will fail with that error.
    Right-click>Start will start the service.

    Hi Rob, per your suggestion, I checked and the terminal services service
    is already running on the effected machine. Thank you for your reply.
