regsvr32.exe wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32.exe wuauserv.dll

regsvr32.exe sccbase.dll
regsvr32.exe slbcsp.dll
regsvr32.exe cryptdlg.dll

net start wuauserv
net start bits


OR

You could be missing
"msiexec.exe" from system32...
you can check like this:
Code:

dir %systemroot%\system32\msiexec.exe

If so, copy it into system32 from the i386 directory of the windows xp install cd...it is called msiexec.ex_ so you will have to rename the extension to exe


OR

make sure BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) is set to automatic and started in services.msc
