One of the most common causes of this error code is the Anti Virus and Anti
Spyware software programs running on the computer.
You can try turning them off and then try the updates again. Keep the
firewall on though.
Virus scanning recommendations for computers that are running Windows Server
2003, Windows 2000, or Windows XP
If you are running WinXP Pro/Vista - see - :

If not and you're running WinXP Home
You may be able to solve the problem by downloading and and then installing
the Subinacl.exe file.
Samples of how to use the Subinacl.exe are in these articles -

Julie, FYI, it would have been better to start your own thread and provide
all the relevant information so we can assist if appropriate/possible.
