  john bunyan 19:12 17 Jan 2008

I have XP pro MCE. Just had computer in shop for new drive etc. Now Win auto updates and defender updates doesn't install. Tried Run '%winddir%\windowsupdate.log and found : Fatal error, winauc handler ; failed to spawn COM server. Cannot understand microsoft knowledge base. Any ideas. Error code was 0x80004002
