Try to register these DLLS and check if that would help

To resolve this behavior, use the regsvr32 command to reregister several .dll files:
Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following commands. Press ENTER after each line:

regsvr32 Softpub.dll
regsvr32 Wintrust.dll
regsvr32 Initpki.dll
Click OK.
Restart your computer.

hi sunray
i think that resolution is intended for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 only.
and i guess JamesMonaghan is using windows 98.
btw, wil it works on win98 as well?

This error has been related to NIS and other Norton products.

Uninstalling the Norton products solves the problem in many occasions.

Have a look in the Windows folder for a file called "WindowsUpdate.log" to see what other clues this may provide to your problem and post them back here.
