windows update



when i go on windows update after i click agree it stops at the beginning and doesn't start downloading or installing. i went into the windows update log and it said error: 0x801901F7
what does that mean?? anyone know?? thanks!
I did find something that may help but am unsure of the method. The users did say however that it worked.

Locate the file loadwc.exe in your Windows/System folder; rename it
to DONTloadwc.exe. You could as easily rename it something else, but this
mane is easy to remember and find at a later time.
[It may be necessary at some future time to change the name back. The
file itself can be used by certain programs to perform web tasks, but I
can't say which ones.

3. Open regedit. Go to
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WebCheck] and
make the following changes
This only works under 98 i belive, any referance to this issue i could find only releated to 98.

There is a step by step test and repair at:


Nothing i noticed specific to this issue however (i did not look hard you may want to)

Other people have said that using this link works in correcting a simular error:


Or via the secure server:

https://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp (a popular fix for problems)

Also you may want to try (if present on ur OS)

Deleting C:\Program Files\Windows Update and iuctl.dll from your system this should cause the active x control to be re-installed.

Some things to try but i cant verify any of them im affraid.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
