1) "->" denotes an external command being executed, and "-> (number)" indicates

the return code from the previous command

2) Not all external command return codes are accurate, or useful

3) Sometimes commands return 0 (no error) even when they fail or crash

Welcome to Lunarsoft clsgman!

Are you running any security software or Internet Security Suites such as Norton or Panda? If not, let us know which one if any you are running.

Also, have you restarted your computer upon receiving the error in the log?

Hi, try this then run Dial-A-Fix afterwards. Stop: Sorry just noticed you have XP with Sp3 in your log. this is only recommended for SP1 and SP2. Sorry for confusion.

The automated fix (WUFix) performs the following functions:

Clears out the proxy cache, places Windows Update sites in the Trusted Zone, places Windows Update sites in the exception list of IE Popup Blocker, starts all dependent services, registers required DLLS, empties the Windows Update temporary folder (with backup), renames the catroot2 folder, retains update history and Event log, and deletes BITS pending download queue.

Automated Windows Update Fix

Download WUFix.zip and unzip to your desktop.

Double-Click WUFix.bat to run fix.

You will see a window open and commands processing. When the window closes the fix will have completed.

Then go run Dial _A-Fix again please.

Tarun is correct try the following guide:

WINDOWS UPDATE TROUBLESHOOTING FIX

Preliminary Recommendations,

1. Ensure following conditons are met:

You are signed on with an XP User Account that has Administrative privledges

You are using Internet Explorer or a browser that supports activeX downloads

Verify that time and date settings for your computer are correct - Click Start->Click Control Panel->Click Date and Time

2. Enable Javascript and Disable Script Blocking Programs

Since Windows Updates is script dependent, any preventative programs which employ script blocking or restrict javascript should be disabled. The automated fix will adjust Internet Explorer's javascript settings, so that it is enabled for the Windows Update sites only.

It is important that you have the most current Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your system. The current JRE version is Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 5.

Older versions of the Sun Java Platform are know to contain Critical Vulnerabilities which are corrected by the current version.

Determine what Java version you have installed on your system by doing the following

Click Start-> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs

Check the listings under JRE or J2SE Runtime Environment for your Java Version

Alternatively, you can check the Java version you have installed by clicking here

You should update your version of the Sun Java Platform (JRE) to the newest version which is Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 5:

Download the latest JRE version at the Sun Microsystem's website

Scroll down to Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u5 and click Download button

Check the box that says: Accept License Agreement

Under the Windows Platform - Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 5 section, click on the link to download the Windows Offline Installation and save to your desktop.

Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.

Next, remove all older versions of the Sun Java Platform using the Control Panel's Add/Remove Program feature (as they may contain security vulnerabilities).

Reboot your system

Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u5-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version of the Sun Java Platform

You may verify that the current version installed properly by clicking here

Now it is very important, that you turn off any script blocking applications you may have running such as Norton Script blocking.

3. Disable Blocking Programs

Many popular programs, even some security applications used to protect you, can actually interfere with the ability to obtain Windows Updates. The following programs have been associated with such issues, and you should check to see if you have any of them running/installed on your system:

Download Accelerator

Download Accelerator Plus

GetRight

Browser Blaster

Pop-up blocker

BitTorrent

PC-cillin - WebTrap component

eMule

Surfin Guard Pro

Sygate Personal Firewall

Norton Internet Security

Freedom Firewall

Zone Alarm Firewall

If you are using one of the above programs, please do the following:

If if the interfering program is a firewall, enable the built-in WIndows Firewall (ICF):

Click start->Control Panel->Security Center->Windows Firewall and Check the 'automatic' circle next to the green shield icon to turn ON the WIndows Firewall.

Temporarily turn off your resident firewall program which can usually be accomplished by right-clicking it's icon in the system tray and selecting the appropriate action to disable it. For example, if you have the ZoneAlarm firewall, click "Shutdown ZoneAlarm".

After Windows Updates is complete, re-enable the your resident firewall by clicking start->All Programs->navigate and open your resident firewall program, then reactivate it. This will automatically disable the Windows Firewall.

Next, temporarily disable any of the other blocking programs listed above. If you are using any other Spam/Popup/Ad Blocker programs which are not on the list, disable them, as well. Also, disable any download accelerator software.

Disabling can usually be accomplished by right-clicking the program's system tray icon and selecting the disable/shutdown option.

After Windows Updates is complete, you may re-enable all disabled programs.

4. Disable registry monitoring/blocking software

If you use a registry monitoring program, you must disable it before running the automated fix. Some popular programs which do that are Adwatch, TeaTimer, and Windows Defender / Microsoft Antispyware

Wot's this then.

The only things Dial-a-fix doesn't (yet) do that WUFix does are: place Windows Update sites in the Trusted Zone, place Windows Update sites in the exception list of IE Popup Blocker

The problem is that most people don't notice the "Flush SoftwareDistribution" button which does the other half of the stuff you mentioned.

The next version of Dial-a-fix will do all of the above but I am not going to place any sites in the Trusted Zone or IE Popup Blocker exceptions because it is unnecessary. I will make sure that they don't go onto the *block* lists, but there's no need for them to be in the Trusted Zone or other exceptions.

That's waaay out of date. Current version is Update 10.

Recommended Version 6 Update 10

Select the file according to your operating system from the list below to get the latest Java for your computer.

Really glad to see you actively monitor the posts DJLizard, I use your DAF everyday, love it. Just thought his security settings were off a bit. Should have just suggested he run the "Flush software Distribution" and reset his browser security settings back to normal.
