Re: Windows Update Error on XP 64bit: update is redirected from v6



Re. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310794
I gave a cursory read-over of the information under "Reset the drive letter
of the system drive" and that reminded of something that may have to do with
this problem. When I installed the system I didn't have drivers that were
recognized by windows. I forget what the error was but I allowed install to
continue anyway until sometime later when I was able to find updated, working
drivers. In order to enable AHCI without reinstalling windows I had to pull
the boot drive and temporarily connect it as an external eSATA drive. The
drivers were then easily installed and I could make adjustments to the bios
accordingly. Swapping the drive back to internal SATA, however, apparently
changed something in the mbr and I was asked to revalidate windows. I don't
know whether this marked the beginning of the windows update problem or not
because it could have been some time before I noticed it.

First let me thank you for your continued help MowGreen. Although this
update thing is not critical (I still get automatic updates) it is plaguing
and I'd like to resolve it.

And, thank you for sticking with this thread. We may have run across a
bug with 64 bit XP here, billcat. After looking at various MSKB
articles, the only thing that I *think* may pertain to this issue is:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310794

NOTE This issue can be caused by any software that changes the default security provider. It is not
limited to Dell computers or to the Dell Assistant software.

Be sure you back up the registry if you decide to try the steps listed
under 'Reset the default security provider in Windows XP '.

Locking pages in memory is not required on 64-bit operating systems.

I'm not sure if that's the cause of the issue but, why did you enable
that setting ? Are you working with an SQL database ?

Antivir *usually* does not interfere with the installation of core
system updating components.
Forgot to ask if you checked the hosts file ... did you ?
Also, check to see if there's an lmhosts file [not lmhosts.sam as that's
just a sample file]. If there is, open it and see if it's pointing
towards the v4 site.
One thing we do know ... some 'thing' is definitely redirecting the
system to the old site.
Give this a shot, please. Go to Start > Run > type this into the Open:
line and then click OK or press Enter

wuauclt /detectnow

Wait about 3-5 minutes or until no activity is showing in the local area
connection icon. Open the WindowsUpdate.log and post at least the last
50 or so lines of the log into your reply, please.
Open the WU.log from Start > Run > type in, then click OK or press Enter

%windir%\windowsupdate.log

BTW, was this a clean reinstall of XP or a Repair Install ?
