Windows 7: 2502, 2503 errors on Windows 7

2502, 2503 errors on Windows 7

Since upgrading to Windows7 I have been unable to update software; at each attempt, I receive first a 2503 then a 2502 error, without explanation.
-date and time are correct
-happens whether virus and firewall are on or off

-attempting to use the uninstaller program also fails.

This is clearly a common problem judging by the number of queries, but I have yet to see any coherent solutions posted.

fingers crossed!
