Microsoft Update - Win 7 Pro 32 bit

Howdy,

I got an error when attempting to update Win 7 Pro SP1 32 bit.  I renamed the Software Distribution Folder and rebooted to create a new SD folder.  That fixed the error but now Windows Update only updates Windows and no other Microsoft products such as MS Office.

So, I opened an elevated PowerShell prompt and entered the following to restore 'Microsoft' Update:

$ServiceManager = New-Object -ComObject "Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager"
$ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
$ServiceManager.AddService2( "7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d",7,"")

The last time I used this fix it worked flawlessly.  However, this time it gets stuck on:

  RegistrationState ServiceID                       IsPendingRegistrationWithAU Service
  ----------------- ---------                       --------------------------- -------
                  2 7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a...                          True

Any suggestions on how I can get 'Microsoft' Update to work on this PC?

Thanks

Joe
