RE: update error 0xC800042D
I had this error come up, while running XP (standard 32-bit) Professional
with Service Pack 3. The procedure below still works.

RE: update error 0xC800042D
For me, same situation as Jay Valatka -- XP Pro SP3. And this procedure still
worked, after about a day of floundering around, before I found this
solution. Who's developing this update rat's nest? The US government?

RE: update error 0xC800042D
Thanks to all!! I had the same situation as Jay Valatka. I took my Dell
laptop into our local computer repair shop and thier solution was to disable
my AVG paid version anti-virus software, update Windows, then re-install!
What a pain and I wasn't going to do that much less pay for another service
call when it happened again in a couple of days. Great forum you guys!! Eve
