    Stop the Background Intelligent Transfer Service and the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
    Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:

    net stop wuauserv
    net stop bits
    exit
    Rename the Catroot2 folder.

    Note Do not follow this step if you are using Microsoft Windows 2000.

    To rename the Catroot2 folder, follow these steps:
    Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:

    net stop cryptsvc
    ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2
    net start cryptsvc
    exit

    Important Do not rename the Catroot folder. The Catroot2 folder is automatically recreated by Windows, but the Catroot folder is not recreated if the Catroot folder is renamed.
    Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
    Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%, and then click OK.
    Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
    Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

    Register the files that are used by Windows Update and Microsoft Update. To do this, follow these steps:
    Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    At the command prompt, type the following commands, press ENTER after each command, and then click OK every time that you receive a verification message:
    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll

    Start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service, the Automatic Updates service, and the Event Log service. To do this, follow these steps:
    Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:
    net start bits
    net start wuauserv

    Luck!

  • I tried all of this and still cannot get Windows Update to switch to Microsoft Update.

    I'm running Win Server 08 Std x64 R1. It's a fresh install. I've applied all of the Windows updates, including SP 2. But I cannot get it to switch from Win Update to Microsoft Update.

    I keep getting this error from the Microsoft Update website: 0x800A01AE.

    I've also tried the System Update Readiness Tool and a Mr. Fixit tool as recommended over at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-windows_update/unable-to-access-microsoft-update-site/a95c722b-ed2a-4bcc-99c1-20601d624e0a?tm=1299795817188&page=1

    Anything else that might flush this error out?

  • Just solved this issue by searching and downloading (+installing) the latest version of the MS Update client. Although this should have been automatically installed with automatic updates....

    Be sure to reboot after installation.

  • The resolution is a bit more simpler than all that. If you have windows XP, Vita or 7, it's very simple. Simply copy the root folder that the damaged file resides in. Everything in that folder except the damaged one will copy. Relocate the copied folder in the same directory the original one is in and rename the copy file as .....(orginal files name) with a 2 at the end or something you'll remember. Delete the Original folder and that damaged file will move to the recycling bin with it Simple. Give it a go!
