    Code 80096001 Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2

    Hello guys,

    Recently removed a bunch of various infections/malware. I'm guessing I'm missing some .dll's associated with Windows update. Also recently installed MSE(in case its relevant).

    [Problem]
    Click search for updates, searches for about two seconds and then receives error {80096001}. I ran two windows update fixes, neither of which worked. Ive included the fixes Ive tried below.

    Fix 1
    Fix 2

    Hi Richard,

    It appears that you've mistakenly linked me to my own thread.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Thanks for the quick response. I understand how things can get, especially if you're a tech support guy. I'm Dl'ing the system update readiness tool, I'll report back shortly.

    Thanks again.

    I have tried the fix 1 & 2, It did not work for me. I have tried the windows readiness tool. I get the same error with that. I have tried the sfc /scannow. And it said it found some corrupted files but could not fix them. That I sould look in this perticular log file. But it will not open for me. Any other solutions?

    The best bet if you have errors that cannot be fixed is to run SFC 3 times. If it still cannot be repaired, try a repair install.
