I have read all the posts on here and nothing seems to help make this work.
Anyone willing to help me work through this?

Mike,

Did the resolutions include this ? :

Suggestion 1:

Make sure the MSXML files are registered correctly by following the
steps below.

NOTE: You may not have the files listed in Steps 2 and 3 installed on
your PC but please perform all 3 steps. If you don't have one of the
files, when you try to register it you will see a popup window that has
this text:

LoadLibrary("filename.dll") failed - The specified file name could not
be found.

Just disregard the error and continue to the next step.

Follow these steps:

1. Click on Start, Run and type "REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSXML.DLL"
(w/o the quotes). You should see a popup message that this process
succeeded.
2. Click on Start, Run and type "REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSXML2.DLL"
(w/o the quotes). You should see a popup message that this process
succeeded.
3. Click on Start, Run and type "REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSXML3.DLL"
(w/o the quotes). You should see a popup message that this process
succeeded.
Now try the Windows Update site and see if you get the same error.

Suggestion 2:

This error can be the result of a file mismatch or corruption of the
MSXML.DLL files. Try upgrading your XML parser to the most recent
version, which is currently MSXML Parser 3.0 Service Pack 2 Release.
You can download the latest parser from this site:
