When I try to start the service I get Error 126 cannot find the module.
I have this problem. Now, Error 126 says it can't find the module. THAT is the problem.
I've run the 'fixits' and they detect no problems.
I've checked the paths in Services.msc
They are normal.
SO, any clues on this? I don't think I have any or HAD any viruses, since there's been no other problems but this.
But I cannot start the service..........what would stop a service from being unable to start in the first place. It has no depencencies.
The files exist in system32. The image path for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv is: %SystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
Also, BITS has no problem starting..........fwiw
Anybody that has a meaningful answer, or wants me to check some values in the registry, or something else, pls respond
PS. This is an XP Pro system.........and fwiw, 'Reinstall Windows' is 1. NOT an answer to a problem. 2. Stupid. 3. NOT an option. 4. Any idiot can say, OH, just spend a little time and reinstall windows.....OH..yeah, and spend 2 weeks reinstalling all your
programs....and don't forget to backup all your data or you will LOSE IT ALL (something they neglect to mention and give zero info on how to a. Do that. and b. Recopy it to your Documents, etc)..........z
