    Could you please help me with an error I am having with update.
    I get error 0x8007041D
    I went to your website fermu and it says I need to download NOD32
    Antivirus System ?
    It also says to beware with other antivirus software already installed on my
    puter, that it could damage those files?
    I currently have Spyware Doctor, NoAdaware 4.0, and Ad-Aware SE that I am
    trying to remove. I want to fix my problem but dont want to get another
    problem in return. Please help if you can! You have my undieing gratitude!!!

    Ok, i'll try to help you.... :-)

    If you don't have installed nod32 antivirus system in your computer, you
    don't need to download it.

    Verify if the three Windows Update core services referred in this
    article are properly set. Also try reinstalling the Automatic Update

    I currently have Spyware Doctor and NoAdAware installed and using them. I
    been trying to delete Ad-Aware SE, with no luck. It says it cant find the
    INSTALL.LOG file, as with yahoo also....same scenerio.

    How do you reinstall windows update?

    So far I have registered some dll's and realized what some of the problem
    might be.
    The 2 errors I have gotten are 0x8007041D and 0x800B0001.
    I have a problem with the BITS and when I go in to manually start services I
    get errors saying an error has been detected. Also, there is a problem with
    my license and authenticity. The dates are okay, but there are other errors.

    As access to the site referenced requires translation, I am posting here for
    others. The answer at the website is as follows and does work.

    "This 0x80070424 error means "ERROR SERVICE DOES NOT EXIST". Especially
    indicates that the BITS service is not present in any way.

    Usually common enough with the following: start > run, and type
    Regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
    and press Enter . If doesn't:

    Start > run and typing each of these lines by pressing Enter at the end of

    net stop wuauserv

    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 start wuauserv

    Restart Windows and go again to Windows Update.

    Note: the registration of all previous libraries can do with only download
    and double click on it, this cmd file ."

    The question that still remains is ... *WHY* does the Service not exist?

    The answer is usually the *presence of malware* or a destructive
    antivirus that behaves as malware does.
    EX: Norton or McAfee AVs distributed by ISPs at "no cost" to their Users.
