    Can you open Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these two commands to see what they report.

    dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Then follow those with sfc /scannow to see what that reports and then retry the WUs if okay.

    If you are using a Samsung computer, it has been found that Samsung's SW Update has been blocking WUs but I don't know if it would produce the error code you are getting.

    That's interesting as I have a Samsung Laptop and I have been having a hard time doing updates. I have updates turned off and when Woody gives the all clear @ http://www.askwoody.com/category/microsogory/microso I go ahead and download the updates and get fail after fail. Lets see what happens today with the new tuesday updates ( wednesday in NZ.) OH make that next week.

    Hopefully Samsung's patch will be out before then giving you the chance to catch up, but wonder if the same problem applies to Rubyjim ?
