Windows Update And Xp Sp1
WindowsUpdate not working?
From different machines XP/2k the scan stops at 0%, so infact it doesn't start at all. I have had this issue personally with a laptop and I found the fix over at binks' site:
Also if you install win2ksp3 the Windows Update program breaks with the error code "0x800A138F", then you will need to execute the below procedure to fix the problem.
go to Start, then Run Type in "regsvr32 iuctl.d l l /u" to unregister the program
Find iuctl.d l l and iuengine.d l l and delete all instances of them
Here is an article in WinNetMag with more on this issue:
that should fix it.
USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Also this may or may not apply to many of you.
