Windows Update error 80200053

I've seen this referenced a few times, but never solved. I get error
80200053 when trying to run update. I saw a post that suggested cleaning out
the download cache in windows\softwaredistribution, which I did to no effect.
I suspect that this is also causing problems with McAfee, which cannot get
the latest updates. Any ideas? Thanks.

80200053 = validation failure

I'd suspect that McAfee is the cause of all the issues. You could try
Validating Vista once more but, even if the system passes Validation
that has nothing to do with McAfee failing to update.

Is this update installed ? : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941649

Since none of the ' third-party antivirus software applications ' are
given a name, I guess it's up to us to guess which ones are not playing
nice with Vista <w>

MowGreen,

This sounds reasonable. I'm trying to download the patch but of course the
download site hasn't been responding for the last two days. Will let you
know when I finally can get the patch downloaded and installed.

Sorry, I posted before I got all my frustration out. So, a few more facts:

McAfee update appears to be working again, but the errors are still coming
from Windows Update. Specifically, the following updates are erroring out:

Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (error 80200053)
Cumulative Update for Media Center for Windows Vista - KB941229 (error
80070570)
Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 - KB941833 (error
80200053)

Looking at your post, if McAfee is causing the problem then theoretically I
could disable it when bringing in updates. That doesn't feel like a good
solution to me...after all, the whole point of a virus checker is to protect
me from things I'm downloading from the internet. However, I'm willing to
give it a try if you think it's a good idea. Thanks for your help.

Re: Just fixed this error on my Windows 7 PC

I have had this problem and I am running a Windows Vista Home Premium on a
Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo computer. My PC uses a wireless USB connection
(D-LINK DWA 140 Rangebooster) to a D-LINK DIR-655 Router.

I get this problem when I try to install IE 8.

I tried your idea with:
runas with the only user that is an administrator (not called administrator
though)
and then
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

Didn't work since this requires a raise in privilege. Any suggestions?

I seem to get this error code when trying to install IE updates.

Windows update shows the code 80070570 when trying to to security upgrade
to Windows Vista (KB974145). Gets a link to Microsoft security bulletin:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../MS10-009.mspx
It is stated there that:
"The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by changing the way
Windows TCP/IP performs bounds checking and other packet handling operations."

Do I have some kind of TCP/IP problem on this computer?

Please advice

Because your Administrator doesn't have a password assigned to it? Add a
password to it then you can use it. Otherwise retry the procedure in a
safe mode boot with cmd only.

<cmd_output OS="W7">
C:\>set /a c = 0x570
1392
C:\>net helpmsg %c%

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.
</cmd_output>


That sounds unhealthy. ; }
