Microsoft Auto Updates fails after XP SP3 is installed
I installed XP-Pro SP2 as a clean install. Then installed SP3 using the
Windows Updates. Then installed Office 2003 and the Office SP3. Now
Microsoft Updates fails to install all new updates. Please advise what I
need to do so Auto Updates works properly.

RE: Microsoft Auto Updates fails after XP SP3 is installed
Hello John,

Two things to try (ignore any article titles - do any suggested methods...)

1) http://www.codeplex.com/aureset
2) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

Try the application download from 1, reboot and visit
<http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/> and do a custom scan for updates. If
it asks you to install anything before you ever get to see a buitton that
says
"custom" on it - do so. When you do your custom scan, do not get Optional
Hardware Updates.

If 1) does not fix things, try methods (1) and (2) from 2)... Reboot after
each one and then reboot and visit <http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/>
and do a custom scan for updates. If it asks you to install anything before
you
ever get to see a buitton that says "custom" on it - do so. When you do
your custom scan, do not get Optional Hardware Updates.

Come back and let everyone here know the results.

RE: Microsoft Auto Updates fails after XP SP3 is installed
I had the same issue. While I trust CodePlex, I thought the Microsoft
soloution of simply reregistering the Windows Update DLL was a cleaner
option, so I did that first. It worked. Didn't even need to reboot as they
have you stop and start the Windows Update service. Just wanted to report my
results for everyone.
