    Microsoft Update fails with error 0xC80001FE

    Using Windows 2000, Microsoft Update fails with error 0xC80001FE. Searching
    the MS knowledge base for this error number returns no hits and nothing is
    mentioned on the troubleshooting page for Microsoft Update.

    Can anyone offer any help?

    0xC80001FE = unable to write to the log file

    OK, now which log file is that a reference to ? Post the
    WindowsUpdate.log located in the WINDOWS directory
    Start > Run > type in

    %windir%\windowsupdate.log
    Click OK or press Enter
    Copy&paste the last 40 or so lines into your reply, please.

    I tried the procedure in that response and it didn't work. I stopped
    Automatic Updates, deleted the SoftwareDistribution folder, and ran "rundll32
    C:\WINNT\system32\muweb.dll,LaunchMUSite" from the command line.

    Microsoft update installed, launched, and gave me the same error code: 0xC80001FE.
