    Dear Friend
    Tried everything as explained in great detail. in Part 1 I found that the file
    “REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL” was missing so I corrected this with the microsoft tool
    “Fixit No. 50202”. This tool also installed the “Widows Update Agent Install”
    Used Command Line to run “services.msc” to access “Automatic Updates”. I manually tried to start the Automatic Updates Services, from here,
    this gave the following message “Could not start the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did no respond to
    the start or control request in a timely fashion.” I’m running out of Ideas PLEASE HELP! (

    This solution should help, but it is a complicated one:

    I guess you’ll have to do repair of Windows intallation.

    Dear Nik
    Just ran Malwarebytes and it has found a nasty infection in the registry preventing MS Security Services from connecting out. Log:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSecurity CenterFirewallDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1)

    Also scanned system using “Kerpersky Killer” Root Tool. Remarkable it has found an infection on the HDD (considering I had already restored XP to
    Factory Image from partition and no untrusted files have been in contact with the HDD) meaning the infection occured prior to XP restore even though deep scanning did not reveal anything suspicious. Everything back to normal

    Regards iky

    I’m glad that all is good.. You can also check my article here:

    Although, once your PC gets infected, there is no guarantee that you are completely safe now.
    I would strongly recommend that you backup important data, format HDD/system partition and make a fresh install.

    Make sure the binaryis stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
    The specific module could not be found.

    Hey Nik,

    When I type “REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL” into my run command thing I get the following error message:

    “The module “WUAUENG.DLL” was loaded but the call to DllRegister failed with error code 0x80070005.

    For more information about this problem, search online using the error code as a search term.”

    The 2 names before this one were successful. I’m using 65-bit Windows 7 by the way. Anything I can do?

    Hello Tony,
    I assume that you were logged on with an administrative privileges as you’ve managed to register 2 dll’s right?

    For the error code, here’s what Microsoft suggests:
