JSI Tip 10385. You receive 'Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page' on Windows XP?

When you attempt to install updates from the Windows Update Web site on Windows XP, you receive an error similar to:

Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page.

The upper-right corner of the Web page displays \[Error number: 0x8024D00C\]

I have scripted FixAU.bat to correct this behavior:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type FixAU and press Enter

. 3. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.

FixAU.bat contains:

@echo off
net stop wuauserv
net stop BITS
cd /d %SystemRoot%\System32
regsvr32 /s /u wuweb.dll
regsvr32 /s /u iuctl.dll 
if exist Wuweb.old del /q /f Wuweb.old
if exist Iuctl.old del /q /f Iuctl.old
if exist Iuengine.old del /q /f Iuengine.old
rename Wuweb.dll Wuweb.old
rename Iuctl.dll Iuctl.old
rename Iuengine.dll Iuengine.old
net start wuauserv
net start BITS
