I had a similar problem (same symptoms) on Win2K SP4 but In my case the
cause was very different - may be worth mentioning here.
I followed the steps listed in this post but when I ran SubInACL, it failed
on each key with an error indicating a missing entry point in msvcrt.dll.

Turns out some other application had placed its own version of msvcrt.dll in
the WINNT\system32 folder in place of the windows one. and Windows update V2
had worked just fine with this one, but not WU V3.

Reinstating the genuine W2k msvcrt.dll fixed it (without needing to run
the SubInACL).
