    It's all relative
    First, the title is not really a title. I purposely choose to use relavent keywords for those "seekers of knowledge ", that actually use the search first, ask later methodology :D

    Anyway...
    I was having some problems shutting down, restarting, and logging off. This is a fairly clean machine. I have a separate pair of boxes for all the other **** I mess around with. The symptons included a very long time to shutdown, to the point I thought my system had locked up. The problem just seemed to come from know-where. ctrl+alt+del then shutdown was no faster. Killing processes first before shutting down didn't seem to help either. It was like a needle in a hay stack.

    All that I noticed was an error in the event viewer that lead me on a fishing expedition.
    Code:
    Event Type:	Error
    Event Source:	DCOM
    Event Category:	None
    Event ID:	10010

    Description:
    The server {9B1F122C-2982-4E91-AA8B-E071D54F2A4D} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.
    
    Searching regedit for "9B1F122C-2982-4E91-AA8B-E071D54F2A4D ", gave me
    default : CAutoUpdate Class 1.0
    AppId : 653C5148-4DCE-4905-9CFD-1B23662D3D9E

    Searching regedit for "653C5148-4DCE-4905-9CFD-1B23662D3D9E ", gave me

    Automatic Updates

    Searching google for either "9B1F122C-2982-4E91-AA8B-E071D54F2A4D" or "653C5148-4DCE-4905-9CFD-1B23662D3D9E" gave little results as well. At this point I knew it had something to do with Automatic Updates, but It hadn't dawned on me that I hadn't seen any lately... until I came across the following, which came out of microsoft.public.windowsupdate / Subject: windows update does not work.

    After creating the script and runnining it, I was able to reboot, restart, and log off my computer again without any problems from DCOM.

    However, I was still having an issue with using the Windows Update button from the start menu or from IE. Basically after clicking the button you are redirected to the MS update site. Next you are suppose to click either Express or Custom. Either choice resulted in an error page. Then I came across this little script to re-register the Windows Update DLL's with the commands below. Like the above thread, I simply created a batch file and ran this script from the command prompt. Now Windows Update works again.

    Code:
    regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 /s wups.dll
    regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll
    
    Now after running both scripts I appear to be running without errors again. I normally wouldn't have time for this much trouble, but it's been a real pain in my backside, and given the amount of headache it's been, I hope this helps someone else.

    Regards,

    Don
