    OK. Tks. The conhost thread was not mine, of course, but gave me an indication of the possible cause or the error..
    Fwiw. I cover my A.. with images. Since posting here, I received the same Email notification in Vista.
    Using all your bad experiences in this thread (well aware of the implications) I also clicked the Email link and lost my update capability.

    this error appears (guaranteed) a few days after (or instantly, I'm not sure ) you have run Timernuke....

    To fix it and re-enable updates, you have to use the timernuke uninstaller... (from the same guy who made timernuke, we don't say names)

    TimeNuke stops the security services and while they are disabled, Windows Update does not work.

    Whoever is experiencing this problem constantly, has probably Timenuke installed.

    My son and I have no retimers or hacks on our OS's. We are both Technet subscribers and the installations are genuine, so I do not think that is the reason.

    Here is some interesting reading:

    Software Protection
    BITS

    With my recent similar error on one of the installs of windows 7 by just letting automatic updates start to download a few updates then stopping it and switching back to auto updates off and manual updates/ this fixed it... I also deleted the update folder before turning automatic updates on though.
