this is for xp home edition and all accounts i've tried have
administrator privs.

I get [Error number: 0x800A0046] when I try to use the Windows Updates
thru Internet Explorer.

....msi service does not start correctly and I even tried the suggestions
at kelly's korner

....yes,i did a repair reinstall of winxp and thats when i found out that
the msi service does not work and that the xp sp 2 cd does not work.

when i contact microsoft they give me information for xp pro and not xp
home...!!!

*HELP*

Windows Update Fails:
Disable your anti-virus when obtaining the updates.
Make sure that your firewall is allowing the connection to Windows Update .
This would be on ports 80 and 443.

You may be able to resolve the MSI issue by manually downloading/installing
the 3.0 version from here:

I suggest a thorough cleaning, download, install, update and scan with
Ad-aware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com
After the initial spyware removeal, restart the computer and scan again with
Ad-aware. You will probably be able to install after this.
