I'm having trouble on a Windows XP Home (SP3) machine that has me banging my head against a wall.
This machine has several outstanding updates from Microsoft, and trying to install them generates error number 8009310B.
Things I have tried:
- Renaming the SoftwareDistribution directory
- Renaming the Catroot2 directory
- Microsoft Windows Update Fixit
- sfc /scannow
- Malwarebytes scan (clean)
- AVG ARL/usb scan (clean)
- Disabling ESET NOD32
One update I was able to install was the Root Certificates update (KB931125). Every other update I've tried has failed with the above error code. I have not tried downloading update packages directly - mostly I've been working through the windowsupdate site in IE8.
Does anyone have any pointers to where I should look next?
