Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you! I've been pulling my hair out ever since
XP SP2 came out since Windows Update and Automatic Updates stopped working
for me after installing XP SP2. I've been troubleshooting this problem for
many months. I tried your batch file tonight and Windows Update now works
for me! Amazing! Why isn't this information on the Windows Update
Troubleshooter or the Windows Update FAQ on Microsoft's site? It would have
saved me hours-and-hours of wasted time. Thanks again!
