  I fould a place that  Gave, me these instrutions:

  1. Reregister the BITS files and the Windows Update files. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press ENTER after you type each command.
    • regsvr32.exe atl.dll
    • regsvr32.exe urlmon.dll
    • regsvr32.exe mshtml.dll
    • regsvr32.exe shdocvw.dll

    • regsvr32.exe wuwebv.dll
  2. Reset Winsock. To do this, type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    netsh reset winsock
  3. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, you have to set the proxy settings. To do this, type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    proxycfg.exe -d
  4. Restart the BITS service and the Windows Update service. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press ENTER after you type each command.
    • net start bits
    • net start wuauserv
  5. If you are running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, clear the BITS queue. To do this, type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    bitsadmin.exe /reset /allusers
  6. Install the latest Windows Update Agent. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    949104 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949104/ ) How to obtain the latest version of the Windows Update Agent to help manage updates on a computer
  7. Restart the computer.

After doing these , well most of them worked. when I clicked okay,but some didn't. It all worked!   I was able to update.  I was about to throw my computer away!

 

I am sure the tip you give here would have worked faster.  I just could not get here. Something was causing internet Exployer to not let me here. 

 

I had to work on it to. Now everything seems to work okay. I kind of hold my breatgh yet and wory that error could haoppen again.

 

Thanks a million for your help. It is great to have a place like this with pro's like you here.  So appreciated by a non pro like myself.  Great place to learn more things about computers.
