    Did not mention if this is XP or Vista or ???

    For Windows Update (if XP), try the following:

    start > run

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll

    This file will do it for you automatically --> Download
