Verify that the Objectname string value is set to LocalSystem in the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan

Then delete:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\25
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\26

Tidy up any other registry keys (eg Juniper) and reboot.

Fresh install of XP SP2 immediately updated to SP3 (Also, Office 2007 SP1 installed).

After, both Windows Update and Microsoft Update detect updates but fail to install any.  No error codes or entries in the event logs.  No info in WU Update History (nothing ever installed by this method).

Fix is install Windows Update Agent 3.0.

Save this to desktop then run the following from a .cmd file:

net stop wuauserv
"%userprofile%\Desktop\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" /wuforce
regsvr32 "%windir%\system32\wup2.dll"
net start wuauserv
exit

Can't install Service Pack (or some/all other updates) directly, from Windows Update or by WSUS.  See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;822798 for solutions.

This worked for me:

create batch file (catroot2.cmd)

net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2
net start cryptsvc
cd %systemroot%\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}
del /Q tmp*.cat
exit

Then delete all tmp*.cat files from %systemroot%\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE} (or add to batch file, as above)
