Windows Update error: wuauclt.exe

I just realized that when I replied to an older thread where someone was
having the same problem as me, the thread is buried back in May, where the
thread was started. I keep getting this error, and no matter whether I click
send error report or not, the window keeps recurring. So I followed the fix
on this thread, which I thought was going to work, but then got an error
during the forced update.

=================
I'm having the same problem, and followed these instructions. When I ran the
program from the icon where I saved teh file to my desktop and when I forced
it per the instructions, I get the same error:

Install failed with following error number:
0x80070420

Help!?

RE: Windows Update error: wuauclt.exe

Do you have Windows installer 3.1 installed? (It's listed under Add or
Remove Programs
if you have it). If yes, uninstall it.

Download & Install the Windows Installer 3.1from the Microsoft Download
site.
(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en)

Next, re-try Windows Update.

How to troubleshoot Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server
Update Services installation issues:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=906602

1. See the "Need more help? Tell us what problem you are having" section of
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=ph;en-us;6527

2. You cannot install some updates or programs
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;822798

3a. Check Windowsupdate.log (%windir%\Windowsupdate.log) for errors
associated with the download/install.

How to read the Windowsupdate.log file:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=902093

3b. Compare errors to those listed here:
http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/archive...date_codes.htm and/or go to
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com > click on Help and Support link in left
pane > Solve problems on your own.

4. Windows Update Checklist:

Oh, Donna ... and just what was that error message, dear ?

Check the ' Posted May 4th-' entry. Is that it ?
