Let's go back to step one then. Go here and follow the instructions for
Win ME :

**Delete the contents of C:\WUTemp if present.**

NOTE: For the " Remove the Windows Update ActiveX Controls " skip step
2. The iuctl.dll and iuengine.dll are located in the WINDOWS\System
folder. Remove the Update Class file found in the WINDOWS\Downloaded
Program Files folder by right clicking it and choosing Remove. Now do
step 5 or manually download the Windows Update software controls from :
save them to your desktop. Extract the .cab file following the steps below:
1. Go to the desktop and right click the file.
2. Click "Extract to."
3. Point to a known location (like the desktop) and click "OK."
4. Go to the location you selected and right click on the iuctl.inf file.
5.Click "Install."

IMPORTANT : Your antivirus program MUST be temporarily disabled prior to
the download and installation of the Windows Update ActiveX software
controls or any Windows Updates. Failure to do so will result in the file being corrupted/damaged and/or show as a 0 KB file .
Failure to do so in regards to Windows Updates will result in
damaged/corrupted downloads and damaged/corrupted/incomplete
installations. Spyblocking software (pop-up stoppers included) and
incorrectly configured firewalls may prevent access to the Windows
Update site or the attempt to download and install updates/patches,
