    Default Error number: 0x8007043C

    I think I may have a virus induced problem, but I've been to a reputable
    online source for diagnostics and come up clean.

    My problem is I can no longer get 'Windows Update" to work without prompting
    the above error. Additionally, I can't get MSSE to download updates and my
    "User List" is screwed up, showing only my personal account and the
    "Administrator" accounts as available when there used to be a third "limited"
    user account (which STILL resides in "Docs & Settings".

    From what I've been able to discern, my computer apparently thinks it's in
    "Safe Mode" after booting into normal WinXP mode.

    Anyone familiar with his scenario out there?

    1) Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

    2) Click Start and Run, type 'Regsvr32 wuapi.dll' (without quotes) in the
    Open box and click OK.

    Note: There is a space between regsvr32 and the .dll file

    3) Similarly one by one register the files listed below:

    Regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    Regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    Regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    Regsvr32 wups.dll
    Regsvr32 wuweb.dll
    Regsvr32 jscript.dll
    Regsvr32 atl.dll

    Try the Windows Update site now.

    Thank you for your response.

    Unfortunately that fix didn't work and I'm still getting the error.

    The computer appears to be in some version of "Safe Mode" when I log into
    WinXP.

    Can you suggest another forum where I might try to get this fixed? If this
    "Safe Mode" problem can be fixed, perhaps my WU problem will go away.

    Thanks

    Using Internet Explorer, have the system scanned here:
    http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/howsafe.htm
    alternatively, you can download, *save*, and then install
    Malwarebytes Anti-malware:
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/

    Click the Download free version button.
    Close all open programs and browsers once the download is finished.
    Now run mbam-setup.exe
    Allow it to update it's definitions during the installation.
    Once it's installed and has obtained it's latest defs, click the Scan
    button as it should be set to do a Quick scan by it's Default setting.
    When the scan is finished click the Show results button.
    If anything was detected make sure that it[they] are checked and then
    click the Remove selected button.

    I checked the discussion group but didn't find anything of use.

    I've started another topic here...

    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...0-27fa87a018c9

    Hopefully I can get this fixed without resorting to drastic measures.

    Thanks for the try.

    I ran the "LiveCare" scan and it was clean. Malwarebytes was also a part of
    the virus-repair process I went through previously.

    I've somehow managed to damage the WinXP OS in the process though and I'm
    currently communicating directly with Microsoft as well as this topic in
    another MS forum...

    Something perhaps you should know. MS has discontinued Windows Live Onecare.

    If sfc /scannow will not run, try creating a new User profile to see if
    User Profile corruption has occurred:

    How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in
    Windows XP
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811151

    The OS may be damaged beyond repair. If that's the case, then you can
    attempt a Repair Installation IF you have the XP CD. If IE7 or 8 is
    installed see this first:

    How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if a later version of
    Internet Explorer is installed

    MowGreen...

    Thank you for that info...I'll file it away for reference.

    That being said, I recently received my WinXP replacement installation disc
    (which I had misplaced) from Microsoft and am working with one of their
    techs troubleshooting this.

    Hopefully I can come to some resolution of this problem with their assistance.

    Thanks
