Hi, I wonder if you can help me. I have two hard drives partitioned into two each C+E and D+F. My problem is that I cannot connect to the Windows Update site. I keep getting the error message (0x80070052). I have followed the advice in the troubleshooter but it didn't help at all. I have my O/S in C and have E as my installation path. I have copied my WU folder everywhere on both partitions. I also have the Automatic Udater popping up, I have tried turning it off but it doesn't work Is there a way to do a clean install of the updater? I don't want to re-install ME just for this purpose. Thanks in advance.

Attempting to access Windows Update results in error 0x80070052 error displayed in an error page. Windows Update.Log shows no errors.

Resolutions:

This problem has been seen where the Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion specifies the Program Files directory as "H:\Program Files" All program files are on H: However, the Windows Update folder was in a Program Files directory on C:
This was resolved by copying the WindowsUpdate folder From C: to H:
