6 Failed Updates - Error Code 0x8007F004
I have two desktop computers running on my home network. All updates install
fine on the computer that is connected wirelessly to the network. My main
computer, however, has constant issues with Windows Update. I tried
downloading the updates through MS Downloads, but it says I don't have
permission, and to contact my administrator. I am the administrator. I am
running Windows XP Professional SP 2 with Norton Protection Center/Norton
Security Online and Windows Defender. I turned everything off (firewall,
etc.) and it still doesn't work. At this time, I can't download KB942763,
KB941568, KB941569, KB962615, KB944653, and KB937894, which are all
considered High Priority Updates. This seems to be a reoccuring problem that
I have on a fairly consistent basis with Windows Update and I can't seem to
find a permanent solution. Please help!

Uninstall Norton and Windows Defender.
Get a plain antivirus. Use the built-in Windows XP SP2 firewall.

At least:

Get Dial-a-Fix:
http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix

Use its options to fix:
- Windows Installer
- Windows Update
- All the Registration Center options.

Turn off the "Empty System32\Catroot 2"
Do NOT do "Flush SoftwareDistribution".

Then click "GO" and wait until it is done... Reboot will be needed.

- Download/Install Windows Update v3.

http://download.windowsupdate.com/Wi...gent30-x86.exe
(You *may* need to install it using the command line switch "/wuforce"
right after the reboot - immediately after logging in.)

- Download/Install the 927891 patch.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...9-404327772E5A

- Reboot.

- Visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and scan for/install updates.

- Come back and let us know how things went!
