How long have you left it ?...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to My Windows XP want update

Because the online installation of updates CAN take a long, long time.

The onscreen display does have a habit of looking like nothing is happening, then suddenly the next 3 or 4 updates whiz by, then it'll slow a bit again.

You might be better to setup Windows Update to download only, then once you've 'got 'em all' you can install offline.

It will reregister the wups2.dll

If you can't follow this try the batch File below.

Method 1: Register the Wups2.dll file in Windows
To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:a. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:a. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll
Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll
b. Click OK on each verification message that you receive.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv
4. Exit the command prompt. To do this type exit, and then press ENTER.


Copy the text between the == signs and paste it in notepad. Save the file to C as UD.bat
Then explore to the C: directory and right mouse click on it and select Open and click on OK when the dll is registered.

net start wuauserv
goto end

:END

Solution This is the simple way..

It is in a ISO format so you might need a ISO burner. Download everything from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en

These are ALL of the updates all rolled into one. Just burn it onto a disk with a ISO burner and load into your computer. So easy.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
