    It is driving me mad. I am getting to the point where I am going to have to re-format it and start again which will have big consequences for the school. Only a primary, but they have a lot going on re ICT.
    Or tell them that on this one you need help. £200 to MS Support and they will have it rocking along in no time.

    Would it be worth running Windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe under the SYSTEM account (via psexec -s -i -d cmd.exe)?

    At the risk of being shot down whenever I have an updating issue I run the following script which some kind lady (sadly I can't remember her name) gave me back in round about 2006. I think it needs refining a bit now but the old faithful seems to do the trick every time I call upon it.

    net.exe stop wuauserv
    cd /d %windir%
    rd /s softwaredistribution
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuapi.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuaueng1.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuaueng.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wucltui.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wups.dll
    net.exe start wuauserv

    Yes... Well they get it fixed.. But the interaction may be staggered over a couple of days. You'd need to place the call early in the day since you've not got a server down it would not go to the fast response team, and call back from the technical team would likely be several hours after you first raise it.

    Will give this a try when I am on the server this afternoon. Thanks for your suggestion.

    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wups.dll
    net.exe start wuauserv
    I ran the script you suggested, it went well but two of the dll's failed to run. These are the details of the errors:

    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuaueng1.dll
    Details:
    The module "C:\Windows\system32\wuaueng1.dll" failed to load.

    Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .dll files.

    The specified module could not be found.



    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wucltui.dll
    Details:
    The module "C:\Windows\system32\wucltui.dll" failed to load.

    Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .dll files.

    The specified module could not be found.

    Would you be able to give me a little further advice on how I can do this? It seems that psexec is for running something on a remote computer. Would I need to run this on a client system on the domain?

    Are you running from an elevated cmd? Right click run as... Administrator.

    Sometimes it helps even if you are logged on as admin, I have no idea why!

    The re-registering help I found has a load more in it and is for Vista but:

    Method 5: Register Windows Update engine files
    If the system DLL files that Windows Update requires to run have not been registered correctly on your system, you can have problems with Windows Update.

    To register the files in Windows Vista, follow these steps:1.Click Start, type notepad in the Start Search text box, and then click Notepad in the Programs list.
    2.Copy the following commands, and then paste them into the Notepad file that is opened:

    NET STOP BITS
    NET STOP WUAUSERV
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG1.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUAPI.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ATL.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUCLTUI.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUPS.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUPS2.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\IUENGINE.DLL /U /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUWEB.DLL /U /S
    REN "%WINDIR%\SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION" "OLDSDVINOD"
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG1.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUAPI.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ATL.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUCLTUI.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUPS.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\IUENGINE.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WUWEB.DLL /S
    NET START BITS
    NET START WUAUSERV
    NET START CRYPTSVC
    REGSVR32 VBSCRIPT.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 JSCRIPT.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 SCRRUN.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 DISPEX.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 MSSCRIPT.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 SOFTPUB.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 WINTRUST.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 INITPKI.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 URLMON.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 DSSENH.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 MSXML.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 MSXML2.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 MSXML3.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 RSAENH.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 GPKCSP.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 SCCBASE.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 SLBCSP.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 CRYPTDLG.DLL /S
    REGSVR32 MSSIP32.DLL /S
    3.From Notepad, click File, click Save as, and then type register.bat.
    4.Click Save as type, and then select All Files (*).
    5.Save the register.bat file to your Desktop.
    6.On your Desktop, right-click the register.bat file, and then click Run as Administrator.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
    7.Check for updates, and install the updates that you find.


    UAYOR and YMMV obviously!

    Hooray, this worked. Thanks for your suggestion.
    Server has bounced and has SP1, but it is still refusing to run Windows Update
    Same errors as before.
    So now the server is on SP1 which is great, but it still has a whole lot of updates to install.
