    i get the following error on windowsupdate.com



    I checked and saw that the background intelligent transfer service was running and RPC was also running. I tried to stop the service and start it again, but it still didnt work. I am using a legit copy of Windows XP Professional - updated to SP2.
    Please help me out, sorry, if this has been posted here before.

    Yeah, I get this all the time, even after I check everything they say to check.
    I can't seem to find the KB article on that specific code though.

    I think it's caused by either the script blocker or firewall coz Windows Update works when I disable it.

    it doesnt work even with my firewall off. Should I disable the Active content script blocker ? Shouldnt it put a message at the top of IE if that was a problem ?

    You need to have the service named Automatic Updates enabled and should be set to automatic.
