windows update error (0x3)

By mediamavin ·
recently the microsoft site for "windows update" has stopped functioning. i have XP home edition.

i get a message at the microsoft site saying "error (0x3)". i searched "knowledge base" and found document Q243787 which seems to describe my problem but....when i try to find a file they reference called "wuhistv3.log" it seems to be missing(yes i unhid hidden files). i also searched my recycle bin.

i'd appriciate any thoughts anyone might have. thanks

Have you tried going to the Windows Catalog on your Windows Update site? It should be listed on the left side of the site. You can download the updates that way too, and even store them for future use. Maybe doing those updates manaully will fix this problem with doing them automatically.
