Windows Update Error Software Update Incomplete

  1. Whenever I go to windows up date I get this error message:
    Software Update Incomplete


    The Windows Update software did not update successfully. Below are some suggestions to help you proceed:
    You may have clicked No when prompted to accept the Trust Certificate. To allow the Windows Update site software to install, click Yes when presented with the Security Warning dialog box.
    Your Internet Explorer security settings may be set too high. To install the updated software and access Windows Update, Internet Explorer security must be set to medium or lower, and active scripting and the download and initialization of ActiveX controls must be enabled.

    Note These are the default settings for Internet Explorer. For more information about Internet Explorer security and instructions on how to change your security settings, read Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) Article Q174360.

    Were these suggestions helpful? Send us your feedback.

    The knowledge base article just helped me make it worse.

    This reply may be a little late but here goes...

    Click START then RUN

    type

    regsvr32 wintrust.dll

    press OK when prompted that it registered.

    This should fix that problem.

    Use HijackThis to remove and DPF's that you may have. The regsvr tip often works as well (as long as you have the dll still)
