I've just been trying to install the latest MS updates.
One update fails to install, and I get an error code message 80200053.
Can't find any reference to this code using the forum search.
Can anyone suggest a fix, please?

Regards,

tristar

thanks, tullie,
I looked up KB982670 on Google. Found an article which advised opening file 'services.msc', finding 'windows update, stopping it, then restarting it. Following that return to 'update' and try to install the KB982670 update.
I did this - and it installed!
I have NO idea what this achieved, except that it worked.

Thank you for your help, tullie.
