    Yes, I also tried the "Flush SoftwareDistribution" option in
    Dial-a-fix...Thank you anyway for your contribution and tips

  2. To get more detail about a failure with regsvr32.exe you can use
    DependencyWalker and its Profile command. The trace it creates
    can be captured; so your trace could be compared to a normal trace.

    BTW the 0x80248011 apparently has something to do with the TIF.

    (Live Search for
    0x80248011
    )


    Have you completely cleared the TIF? If just using the normal Delete Files...
    command seems not to be enough you could also delete the whole folder.
    To do that you need to use a different user with admin authority or boot from
    an alternate partition, etc. (The advantage is that the TIF's index.dat file gets
    reinitialized AND resized.) Another way to resize the TIF's index.dat is
    to use CacheSentry which can do it over a boot.

    PROBLEM IS FIXED !!! I thought it would be an idea to try Dial-a-fix in safe
    mode. That did the trick. CPU is "back to normal" and WU works just fine.
    Defender works fine to. Robin; you get my vote!

  7. Thanks for posting back with this info, Bjoern. It sure sounds as if
    'something' isn't playing nice with system files needed to update.
    The only message will be the one stating the the Automatic Updates
    service is stopping and then the Desktop will come back up.

    Since Dial-a-fix worked in Safe Mode, that may be an indication that
    Trend or other security software is hampering scripting at Windows Update.

    PLEASE READ THIS. I FIX PCS FOR A LIVING. MY CUSTOMER HAS EXACTLY THE SAME
    PROBLEM AND I DO MEAN EXACTLY RIGHT DOWN TO THE 50% CPU PART.
    THERE ARE A FEW SPYWARE/VIRUS REMOVAL THINGS I HAVE'T TRIED YET BUT THIS PC
    WHICH **DID** HAVE A LOT OF SECURITY PROBLEMS HAS HAD ALL OF THEM REMOVED AND
    THIS PROBLEM REMAINS WHICH COULD WELL BE A MS OS BUG (DUE POSSIBLY TO A
    RECENT MS UPDATE). THE REMAINING SECURITY REMOVAL THINGS ARE MINOR AND
    ESSENTIALLY "SHOTS IN THE DARK" THAT ARE UNLIKELY TO WORK.

    I STRONGLY SUSPECT A MS BUG HERE DUE TO THE EXTRAORDINARY SIMILARITY IN THE
    DATES OF THIS POST AND WHEN I SAW THE PROBLEM, ALMOST THE EXACT SAME DAY.

    I **WILL** POST HERE IF MY REMAINING WEAK SECURITY REMOVAL EFFORTS FIX THIS
    PROBLEM.

  9. Since you've posted in this thread, you should try all the fixes suggested
    earlier in this thread.

    Greetings!
    Since Dial Fix fixed it, does anyone know what it actually fixed or should I now turn to their site to research that product? Please advise.

  12. Probably just registered a dll properly.
    BTW - this posting is over a year and a half old.
    http://groups.google.com/group/micr...g+CPU+constantly.+No+access+to+Windows+Update

    AUReset likely could have done the same thing, had it been around then.
    Perhaps a few KB articls covered the necessary things...

    Can you be specific about the problem *you* are seeing now...?
