Thankyou for your reply. The eroor codes are 0x80070003 for KB969059, 974318 and 951978 which are the 3 updates given by automatic updates (shield icon). The eroor code for the remainder is 0X8007010B.

I have tried fixit 50597, BITS is on automatic, I found the network directory by start/run/ "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network"

It is puzzling

The following updates will not download  and cosequently the updates fail. I had to use the restore disk back in July which reset the old Time PC to factory settings...

Please answer each of the following [admittedly tedious] diagnostic questions in a correspondingly-numbered list in your very next reply (no need to quote this post):

1. What is the full name of your installed anti-virus application or security suite and when (approx. date) does your current subscription expire?  What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender) are installed?  What third-party firewall (if any)?

2. Has a(nother) Norton application or a McAfee application EVER been installed on the computer?

3. Did a Norton free-trial or a McAfee free-trial [PICK ONE] come preinstalled on the computer when you bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)

4. Open Add/Remove Programs & make sure the Show Updates box at the top is checked (and leave it checked); then select the Name option in the Sort by box on the right. Now scroll down & tell me which, if any, of the following updates ARE listed?

    (a) KB2722913, KB2723135, KB2705219, KB2712808 & KB2731847;

    (b) KB2698365, KB2691442, KB2655992 & KB2719985;

    (c) KB2707511, KB2676562, KB2659262, KB2686509 & KB2695962

    (d) KB2653956; KB2661637, KB2598479, KB2631813 & KB2585542

    (e) KB2393802 and especially Update for Windows XP (KB971029).

Most will be displayed as Security Update for Windows XP followed by the KB number in parentheses.

If IE8 is installed, one (1) will be displayed as Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 8 followed by the KB number in parentheses.

5. Is Firefox, Chrome or any other alternate browser installed?

6. Is Java Version 7 Update 5 (or higher) installed?  TEST HERE USING IE (only!) => http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

7. Are you in the habit of using "Registry cleaners" (e.g., Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; RegClean Pro; Advanced SystemCare; Registry Booster; McAfee QuickClean; AVG PC TuneUp; Norton Registry Cleaner; PCTools Optimiser; SpeedUpMyPC; PC Doctor; TuneUp Utilities; WinMaximizer; WinSweeper; Comodo System Cleaner; Advanced System Optimizer; CCleaner Registry Cleaner)?

0X8007010B "Directory name invalid".

Please reboot after renaming the softwaredistribution folder as mentioned in the below article.

Hopefully that will clear up the problem.

see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916248

  2. Type net stop wuauserv, and then press ENTER.
  3. Type exit to close the Command Prompt window.
  4. Start Windows Explorer, and then open the Windows\System32 folder.

    • Msxml3.dll
    • Wuaueng.dll
    • Wuapi.dll
    • Atl.dll
    • Wucltui.dll
    • Wups.dll
  6. Open the Windows\System32 folder, and then confirm that the files from step 5 have been replaced from the DLL cache. If a file is not replaced, rename the original file again.

Antivirus definition: 1.135.722.0

Antispyware definition: 1.135.722.0

3  Cant remember but if any it would have been AVG 2012 Free version. Interestingly Windows security centre has found more than one antivirus software one of which is up to date etc.  However, I cannot find any other antivirus software in the add/remove programs list apart from MSE

4   KB2659262, installed  02/09/2012

     KB2631813 installed 02/09/2012

     KB2585542

installed 02/09/2012

5a. IE8 is installed

5b. but does not connect/load when clicking on a link but ok on favourites and by typing address manually

 

Java update 7 is now installed.

 

Within the last few minutes I tried to use auto update as the yellow shield icon said there were updates ready to install.  the following updates failed

Security Update for Windows XP (KB969059)
Update for Windows XP (KB951978)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB974318)

However  add/remove programs tells me these security updates were installed on 05/09/2012.  So, it gets even more weird.

 

Your time and help are greatly appreciated
