Open the task manager and kill the SVCHOST.EXE process.
  • Click "Start" then "run"
  • ype "REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL" (without the quotes) and press OK
  • When you get the message "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message, click OK.
  • Enter these following commands in "Run":
    • REGSVR32 Wuaueng.dll
    • REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
    • REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
    • REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
