download fails with error 0x80080008


Hello,

i cannot download patches from windowsupdate anymore. Every download
fails with error 0x80080008.

I tried deleting the "SoftwareDistribution" folder. Then the download
starts. At 20% it simply fails.
I registered *all* dll's in the windows directory again using regsvr32.exe.
I even reinstalled COM+.

The only "success" so far is that the error number changed from 0x80080005
to 0x80080008...

Does anyone know the reason for this behaviour?
