Ifound that I had no updates installed since May 10 andnothing I have done so far has helped. Worth a try if you have - so good luck as it came from a Microsoft News Group when I had problems with WU.
I would certainly recommend that Clare try this solution, as it worked for me. I suggested to Microsoft that they re-write and re-issue the update file so that it works.
Two qualifications though, this is a command line solution which should be written as follows if you have Window XP:regsvr32c:\windows\system32\wuweb.dlland so on for the other files. Please run the following command in the opened window. ALL OF THE OTHER UPDATE FILES DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL AND APPEAR ON THE COMPUTER AS THEY SHOULD.
