    7.0.6000.374 Windows Update Software? (Home Premiu

    What's with "Windows Update Software 7.0.6000.374"?
    I was checking my Update History and found this item recurring 10 times,
    5 between June 7 & 16 and another 5 between May 22 & June 6.
    These were not requested updates. They are in blocks between updates I have requested.

    I have 9 more of these things one a day from 6/17 to 6/26.
    Is no one else seeing these updates?

    My first update was May 22 and since then, almost repeating once a day.
    The "View Details" just show they were "Successful & Important."
    There is no link to Microsoft for additional informatiion.

    So, what is it suppose to fix?

    Re: 7.0.6000.374 Windows Update Software? (Home Premiu

    It is an update which is part of the fix for the "svchost.exe" problem. You can read about it here . To see if it has been applied successfully, navigate to WindowsSystem32 and find the wuaueng.dll file. Right click, select properties, details tab and look at the "file version" line. If the version is 7.0.6000.374 or greater, then the fix has been applied.

    Still a mystery as to why this has been applied so many times in your particular situation however.

    Re: 7.0.6000.374 Windows Update Software? (Home Premiu

    John,
    My count is now up to 21, the updates are now occurring once a day at no particular time of the day.
    I am a paying subscriber to Windows Secrets and am aware of the several "svchost.exe" articles,
    and there was another article in today's issue by Scott Dunn; however,
    I have not noticed that particular problem on my system.

    I still do not understand which update is causing the problem, do you have a clue?
    The first one, on May 22, was 40 days after I applied the April updates on 4/12.

    PS: A check of "Wuaueng.dll" shows Ver: 7.0.6000.374, Created: 5/22/07 11:08 AM.
    First update occurred 5/22/07 7:38 PM

    Re: 7.0.6000.374 Windows Update Software? (Home Premiu

    I'm certainly not an expert on the workings of Windows Update, but is it possible that the wuaueng.dll is not properly registered and thus Windows Update is seeing this update as not installed (hence the multiple downloads)? This is just grasping at straws, but why not manually register the dll (regsvr32 wuaueng.dll) and see what happens? If this doesn't solve the problem, I'm not sure what to suggest. Maybe someone else can help?

    If registering that .dll doesn't resolve the problem, I would suggest he call Microsoft Support using their toll-free #: 1-800-668-7975 since all issues relating to Windows Update are non-chargeable.

    At a command prompt (run as administrator), type "regsvr32 wuaueng.dll" without the quotes and <Enter>.

    Jeff,
    Thanks.
    Did not see you note until late this afternoon.
    Called the 800 number and was answered by Canadian Support.
    Apparently MS USA takes off early on Saturdays.
    I will try again Monday.

    The registration attempt with "regsvr32 wuaueng.dll" yielded:
    RegSvr32 Error:
    The module "wuaueng.dll" was loaded but the call to
    DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

    With Jeff''s 800 number, I kept getting Canadian Support, but never a real person.
    From another forum I found out about Microsoft 866-PCSAFETY (866-727-2338)
    Called that number Monday night and after being bounced between Customer Support and Tech Support a couple of times, I finally spent about 3 hours with "RajI"
    He really did not have clue, but installed and ran EasyAccess on my system.
    First "sfc /scannow
