Re: Error Number 0xC80003FB
Neil,

By recently installed do you mean a format and reinstall or a repair
install of Win2K ?

And, please post what " have emptied & update data stores " means.
Are you referring to deleting the contents of the DataStore subfolder of
SoftwareDistribution and/or renamed/deleted Software Distribution ?

Is the latest version of the Windows Update Agent installed ?
Please try another attempt at a manual update.
If/when it fails, close Internet Explorer.
Go to Start > Run > type in the below and then click OK or press Enter

%windir%\windowsupdate.log

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the log for the most recent entries.
Copy and paste at least the last 50 or so lines into your reply, please.

*** What is the installed antivirus/security suite and which 3rd party
firewall is being used ? ***

Re: Error Number 0xC80003FB
I think it was actually a repair installation.
Data stores does mean DataStore in SoftwareDistribution
Yes latest version of Windows Update Agent is installed.
Antivirus is currently disabled.
Tried manual update again with the following log entries.

Re: Error Number 0xC80003FB
Neil ... is a 3rd party firewall installed ? If not, then there's a
strong likelihood that the system is infected already as error
0x80070002 means 'The system cannot find the file specified.'
In this case, it's the service ID for the Automatic Update service -

2009-01-09 09:14:34:242 1528 b58 Agent WARNING: Failed to read the
service id for re-registration 0x80070002

" The authentication method is not supported. -
CoCreateInstance(IBackgroundCopyManager) fails with E_ACCESSDENIED
(0x80070005) in this condition "

There may be an add-on in IE that is causing updating to fail. Not sure
whether the add-on is malware related or not, but it certainly appears
to be.

Which AV is installed and have you scanned the system lately with it ?
