Hello everyone,
This is my first day on this site and I am eager to get some of my questions that have stumped me, finally answered. Here is my first question:

I have two workstations on my network that have windows update errors. The error code that shows in the error log is 0x8007f0da. Every time I attempt to install the updates, it fails. I am running a server with SQL 2000 as a WSUS server to preserve my most precious bandwidth as much as possible. Both of the workstations with errors are running XP Pro SP2. The WSUS detects that there is an error on both of these workstations, but I have not been able to find a solution. The three updates that I am experiencing this error on are:

1.) Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8007f0da: Security Update for Windows Media Player Plug-in (KB911564).
2.) Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8007f0da: Security Update for Windows Media Player 10 for Windows XP (KB911565).
3.) Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8007f0da: Security Update for Windows XP (KB913446).

I don't feel that my network is in jeopardy by not having these updates applied correctly, but it is a little annoying and makes me wonder if future updates will come through correctly. Thanks in advance for any help!

Oddly enough, I have seen that KB article before, but I forgot about its existence. The first few solutions didn't work for me, but unregistering all of the dll's, restarting the pc, and then re registering all the dll's did the trick. I actually copied the text out of the article and turned the commands into a batch file to make things a little easier and to have them for future use. Thanks for the help LeeTutor.
