Window Update Service fails with 0x80070032 error
I have a Windows XP SP 2 system. Automatic Updates service will not start.
In the WindowsUpdate Log file, here is the error:

WU client version 7.2.6001.788
FATAL: Failed to initialize with error 0x80070032 from component Proxy manager

We are using a WSUS server. When I try to manually download the updates at
Http://update.microsoft.com, I get the same problem. The website tries to
download a new client, but fails to start the service.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you

This is a =WUA= issue, if not just a general client networking issue, but
certainly not a WSUS issue, and it's unfortunate that the message is being
forwarded to the WSUS group rather than being handled as the
agent/networking issue that it is.

I found several instances of the error code 0x80070032 via a Google search,
but none related to the WUA (except clones of this thread on other webforums
sites). What I did notice, though, was a general theme running through all
of the threads, and that was that the issue related to either service issues
(services disabled/not started) or winsock issues.

Taking from one thread at
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/23...-hang-starting
which actually has a WUA demonstrating this issue (though the thread is
about other service startup issues), the resolution was to reset winsock.

NETSH WINSOCK RESET
