pulled from someone else's forum post:

quote:
Note: The following assumes that you have, or have access to the
original Vista 32-bit .iso or can otherwise utilize the file
install.wim contained within the .iso.

1. Place the original Vista .iso on your hard drive.
2. Extract install.wim from the iso.
3. Extract all c:\windows\system32\wu*.* files from install.wim.
4. Place all extracted wu*.* files in their own folder, e.g., C:\wu for
later use.
5. Run Start, All Programs, Accessories. Right click on Command Prompt
and click on Run as administrator.
6. Navigate to your System32 directory.
7. In order to replace current wu*.* files in the System32 directory,
you'll need to first take ownership of each of them as follows:
Run: takeown /f "path and file name" [note: I ran this command for
each of the wu*.* files, one at a time]
then
Run: cacls "path and file name" /G <your username>:F
8. Replace all wu*.* files using those from c:\wu
9. Register each of the original wu*.dlls in System32 - for example
(regsvr32 wuapi.dll)
10. Reboot
11. Place Windows Update in manual mode as a test and run it.

All you're doing is taking ownership of a few files, replacing them and registering the new ones.

And, no, how do you expect replace some files without replacing them?

Post a 'Hijack This' log on here so that we can analyze what went wrong. IIRC, I worked on a customer's computer that did the exact same thing, it was a long time ago, but I believe Norton was messing with it.

Post your windowsupdate.log also.

It's located at:

%windir%\windowsupdate.log
