Windows Update - install error

Hi there,

Keep trying to install the latest Windows Update service pack. Tried a few times and it fails because the 'class is not registered'. The error number given is 80040154.

The text that pops up also has this
Error:REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG(0x80040154)

I've googled the error (inlcuding a 'Fix it for me' patch which hasn't made a difference). Any ideas?

I should add that I can sin into WLM with no porblems (the error code seems to relate to this). I also rarely use it.
