Go to the Windows Update website. When the page fully loads, click on "Review your update history" under Options in the left sidebar. Scroll (if necessary) to locate the items that have "Failed" in the Status column. Click on the Failed icon, and you should receive an Installation Failure popup window. Take note of the Error Code for each failed item and post back here with the error code(s).

In addition to the link provided by lcsmith39, there is also this MSKB article:
Error message when you try to download updates from the Microsoft Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site on a Windows XP-based computer: "0x80070003"

I never have this problem since i started using XP few years ago until recently i formated my pc and reinstalled my XP..

So then i was looking for the fix, and i am so glad i found this, it works for me so hope it works for you too..

Basically what you need to do is create a bat file.

Cut and paste the below lines into notepad:


regsvr32.exe iuengine.dll
regsvr32.exe wuapi.dll
regsvr32.exe wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32.exe wuauserv.dll
regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll
regsvr32.exe wups.dll
regsvr32.exe wuweb.dll
regsvr32.exe wups2.dll
regsvr32.exe cdm.dll
regsvr32.exe msxml2r.dll
regsvr32.exe msxml3r.dll
regsvr32.exe msxml.dll
regsvr32.exe msxml3.dll
regsvr32.exe msxmlr.dll
regsvr32.exe msxml2.dll
regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll
regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 dssenh.dll
regsvr32 rsaenh.dll
regsvr32 gpkcsp.dll
regsvr32 sccbase.dll
regsvr32 slbcsp.dll
regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll



Now click on File
Click on Save As
(dialogue box appears)
At the bottom do the drop down in Save as Type as ALL FILES

In File Name box name it Winupdatefix.bat
Save it to location that you prefer.

it will appear as a ms-dos batch file.

Double click is to run it , and just press 'OK' for all the dialouges, for some DLLs, it wil says seomthing like missing a file or cannot re-register don't worry, just press 'OK' .. Note: initpki.dll will seem to hang, it just takes less than a minute comapred to the others (that are almost instant).

Restart computer (optional)

Good luck..

Thanks to Boraxus from somewhere..

Yes it is safe but its only if you've done a windows restore. Here is a link to an excellent newsletter on the subject which explains it all: http://WindowsSecrets.com/comp/070927
