When I want to install an update from Windows Update, when I attempt to install a message appears: Unable to verify update.inf, please make sure cryptogarphic services is running!

Which it is, so how can I install the update?

What is wrong and how can I solve it?

Thanks in advance.

What update is it?

Is the one I am trying to download!#

Any ideas?

tried deleting WUtemp, etc.... Everything on MS Support has failed, any answers?

PS. IT IS AFTER A SYSTEM RESTORE WHICH HAS SEEMED TO HAVE CAUSED IT HOWEVER EVEN PUTTING IT BACK DOES NOT SOLVE IT.

Thanks.

click here and follow steps 6 to 8 which states:

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each line:
net stop cryptsvc

ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 oldcatroot2

net start cryptsvc

Type exit to close the command prompt.

Be sure to type the commands carefully.
