    Yes I am experiencing the same problem. Automatic Updates in the Control
    Panel says Auto Updates are turned on, but I cannot download any. I also do
    not see Automatic Updates listed in the services.msc file.

    Please try the following:

    Click Start >> Run >>
    Type the follow command in the Open box.
    "net.exe stop wuauserv" (w/o quotes)
    Press Ok

    Repeat the same for the following commands:

    regsvr32.exe wuapi.dll
    regsvr32.exe wups.dll
    regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll
    regsvr32.exe MSXML3.dll
    regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll
    regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll
    net.exe start wuauserv

    Restart the machine and try again.

    Thanks a lot Torgeir, it worked! Which is a lot more than I can say for what
    Microsoft Online Assisted Support told me to do.

    Hi, I am having the same problem and tried the same suggestion but still I am
    having problems. After executing these lines, I go back and checked if
    automatic program is displayed and enabled at services.msc. I can see it but
    with the disable status. Tried to enable the program but I get a message
    that says that it cant change the status for the program is marked for
    deletion. Therefore I can't continue and can't run the windows update
    program.

    Any suggestion to this matter?

    See if this helps:

    Start regedit.exe and locate the key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv

    If you find a DeleteFlag value there, delete the DeleteFlag value.

    it's been months that i'm trying to solve the windows update problem with no
    luck. I even requested HP assistant and no luck until i came across your tip.
    I went step by step in the command box, entered all the commands, i
    restarted the computer and all is well now...........

    Thanks from Israel...and keep up with the good tips

    Worked like a charm Torgeir! I have no idea what the commands were but I'm
    happy with the results. Kudos to you.

    I seem to have a problem with automatic updates resulting in this error. I
    tried following the steps which Torgeir initially posted and rebooting, but
    still got the same error. On looking for the key in regedit below, but there
    is nothing listed at that location for wuauserv (although there was a key for
    it in the higher directory ControlSet003).

    Any further tips greatly appreaciated!

    Copy that subkey and than create a new one for CurrentControlSet to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\*wuauserv*

    Right click wuauserv in CurrentControlSet003 and choose Export.
    Save it to the Desktop and name it wuauserv.reg.
    Double click wuauserv.reg to Merge the info into the registry.

    Restart the system. Did the setting stick this time ?
