Windows Server 2008 Std. Update Error with code 8000FFFF

I am trying to run the updates on Windows Server 2008 Standard machine and keep getting the error as " Windows update encountered an unknown error" with error code: 8000FFFF

Here is the log of the update from c:\windows\windowsupdate.log

I applied the fix from

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946414

and found no use. Also ran the system update readyness tool from

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

and found no use.

Any help resolving the issue would be gretly appreciated.

Thank You

Hi Big_One01,

Thank You for your response. I looked into the server's registry. I did not find the above mentioned keys under HKLM\COMPONENTS.

Please review the attached screen shot.

Any further thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Hi All,

None of the multiple solutions that were flying around in Internet worked for me. As you can see, I tried to get the resolution on this in many ways. Finally I got this resolved with the help of technician from Microsoft and here is the steps

1) Login to the server as "Administrator"
2) Change permissions to provide full access to C-drive for the user "Network Services"
2) Log off the from the server
3) Log back in as "Administrator"
4) Re-run the Updates

That should install all the pending updates.

Hope this helps to those who run into the same situation as I am.

Thank You
