Chena,

Right click My Computer and choose Manage. Now click the plus sign next
to Services. Double click on Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
It must be set to Manual or Automatic to successfully do Windows
Updates. If it's set to Disabled under Service status then click the
drop down window and set it to Manual. Click Apply, then OK.

IF BITS was already set to Manual or Automatic, then see if resintalling
Windows Script resolves the issue :
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Download and save scripten.exe. Close IE and then install it.

Re: Error number: 0x800A01CE

"CHENA",

I do want to help you, but I need a little more information. The error you
posted is the one that ends up on the website.

We need a little more information. Would you mind running through another
attempted installation on the Windows Update website and sending us back the
results? Here's how:

Conventions:
- In these instructions, keys on the keyboard are wrapped, such as: <Enter>,
so an instruction of: Type: cmd <Enter> means type the three letters cmd and
then press <Enter>.
- Combinations such as <Ctrl>+<S> and <Ctrl>+<Shift>+<End> mean to press and
hold the keys in order while then pressing the last key. For example, press
the <Ctrl> key and hold, then press the <Shift> key and hold, and then press
the <End> key as if you were typing a single letter of the alphabet.


On Windows XP:
1. Close all Internet browsers
2. Open a single Internet Explorer window.
3. In the Internet Explorer window, click Tools
4. Click Windows Update
5. When you reach the Windows Update site, click Custom Install
6. Click Review and Install Updates
7. When presented with multiple updates, uncheck all of them except for one
update (your choice)
8. Look down at the System clock and note the time. Let the minute move
forward one, so that there is no other activity associated with this
attempt.
9. Click Install. Wait for Windows Update to fail. If it succeeds, reply
back and let us know.
10. Assuming it failed, Click Start
11. Click Run
12. Type: %WINDIR%\WindowsUpdate.log
13. Press <Enter> or Click OK
14. When the log opens, scroll down to the hour and minute you memorized in
step 8.
15. Starting at the beginning of the first entry for that minute, click and
drag down and to the right selecting the rest of the log.
16. Click Edit, then Copy, or just press the <CTRL> and <C> keys.
17. Reply to this posting.
18. When that window opens, Tell us what update you attempted to install,
and where it failed from your observation.
19. After this, on a new line, state the following and press <Enter>: Log
entries follow:
20. Place the cursor on the line under the entry from step 19, and then
click Edit, then Paste, or just press the <CTRL> and <V> keys.
21. The log entries copied in steps 15-16 should have copied into your
posting.
22. Send it to us, and let us take a look at this failure.

Sincerely,

Pat Walters [MSFT]
