does anyone know how to fix Windows Update when I'm getting 8000FFFF error?

I've already tried Step 1,2,3 from this site:

Vista update error

when I tried to update Windows Update Agent installer returned 8000FFFF error too.

Any ideas?



Have a read of Windows Update fails with 8000FFFF (E_UNEXPECTED) the gist of which is:

Quick Solution: Check the permissions on the root of C: and ensure that BUILTIN\Users have Read access.

Have a look at the WindowsUpdate.log in your Windows directory and the Application Event logs to confirm that you are getting the same errors as in the Brad Rutkowski's Blog entry.
