Error number: 0x800700C1

On my Windows 2000 Pro SP-4 computer, I "upgraded" to Microsoft Update. It
worked once (downloaded and installed a couple of updates). I rebooted and
logged back in as Administrator. Now, when I go to Microsoft Update, it
complains about "Error number: 0x800700C1", and displays its default
"self-help options" page.

Also... Now that I've installed the Microsoft Update "upgrade",
windowsupdate.microsoft.com no longer works. It just displays a blank page.

Any suggestions?

RE: Error number: 0x800700C1

had exactly the same problem, and there was an earlier posting in this NG
which was the solution:
download from MS and install MS XML parser MSXML 3.0 SP5

Thanks. Downloading and installing MSXML 3.0 SP5 sounds like it would have
solved my problem... except that I was in a hurry, and after an hour on the
phone with Microsoft tech support getting nowhere, I gave up and restored my
PC to backup I took a couple of months ago.

The reason that I believe the MSXML thing would have been key to resolving
my issue is that, after I posted my query to this NG, I discovered that
Visual Studio wouldn't start. But it told me that it couldn't load
MSXML3.DLL. Oh well... Maybe Microsoft will fix the stupid thing so that it
includes all the required bits and pieces (like MSXML 3.0 SP5)...

Yes. Installing MSXML 3.0 SP5 fixed the issue. No need for me to even
restart the machine. Look for this download here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml/default.aspx
BTW I had a Windows 2000 Server.

I think Microsoft should add this error number and fix to the Getting help
and support section within Microsoft Update.

I'm getting the same error number, but on my XP workstations. Tried the XML
solution, but it didn't change anything for me. Anybody got a solution for
XP?

RE: Error number: 0x800700C1

I went back and tried the various things on my XPhome machine that I have
read under the thread above. The only one I have not completed is one from
TaurArian which was to try start run regsrv32.exe licdll.dll it does not seem
to exist. I did try to download it but it would not allow me to copy it from
where I saved it in downloads. every thing was ok up until Feb 3, 2007 when I
did an autoinstall from my tool bar. nothing but error code since.
