I followed the instructions as given by gerryf in the link Windows Security Updates Fail Options but still get the failure. As he suggested I am attaching a copy of my WindowsUpdate.log. Can someone please help?

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe msxml2.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe msxml3.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe msxml4.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe muweb.dll

regsvr32.exe wuapi.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll

<enter>

regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll

<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe wups2.dll
<enter>

start > run, type,
regsvr32.exe wuweb.dll

net start wuauserv
net start bits

Step four
Are you getting a specific error message?
If so, go here and check it

http://v5.windowsupd...t.aspx?ln=en-us

Step five

Start >Run, type
regsvr32 jscript.dll
<enter>

Step six

Download and install the following

http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en]http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en

Step seven
If you are using an antivirus program (and you should be), temporarily disable it...usually done with a right click of the icon in your system tray next to the clock. If Windows Update works, contact your antivirus program vendor for an update.

Step eight
If all the above have failed, open c:\windows\windowsupdate.log in notepad, choose Edit > Select All from menu, hit the DEL key. Save the file. Visit Windows update again. After failure, ATTACH (do not copy and paste) the c:\windows\windowsupdate.log to your next post and someone will come along and help you.

Yes I did all the steps and accounted for the typos.
I repeated the steps as you have them listed with the same results.
I did see something I didn't expect when exscuting the "sc config wuauserv start=auto" and "sc config bits start=auto" commands. see the attached results1.txt Attached File  results1.txt   1.6KB   57 downloads
I believe that this also happened the first time I tried the listed steps.

The contents of the latest windowsupdate.log is also attached Attached File  WindowsUpdate.log2.txt   14.05KB   50 downloads
