I noticed that the windows update feature was not working for me. The only advice i received was 'code 800736B2' - So I google it with no help at all, so i checked Microsoft.com and they also had no answer. So Im trying the helpful community! - I am also still waiting for an email back from them - not holding my breath too long though. I also received the error code 80070002, and i worked through the fix for that - still get it though, thought id mention it in case it was related to the 8007362 error code..help please.

This should fix the problem

Go to START, Select RUN
Type: regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
Press Ok


That's the simple way. If that doesn't work, create a batch file in Notepad. To do this, Open Notepad

Copy and paste the following into it (note - when copying from here pasting into Notepad will add line numbers for each line. Be sure to remove those line numbers)

Code: [ Select ]
Net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\vbscript.dll
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\mshtml.dll
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\msjava.dll

Click File >> Save As
In the file type drop down select All Files instead of Text

Save it as UpdateFix.bat to your desktop

Go to your desktop and double click that file. After it runs Windows Updates should work. If they don't try rebooting and check again.

Although that is for servers it should still work with XP and possibly Vista as well (although I'm not certain on Vista.)
