    I broke the rule on all three of my Windows XP Pro PC's: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    After doing the Windows Patch Tuesday "Critical Updates", I decided to do most of the "Optional" Windows Updates.

    IE8 now opens with an error (when opened out of the Sandbox). IE8 seems to work after the Updates, but if I click on Windows Update in the Toolbar I get the error "Error number: 0x800A0046"

    The "Best Solution" to this problem is to "Restore an Image" and don't add any of those "Optional Windows Updates".

    I checked all three PC's and only two of them have the problem. The problem was most likely related to very numerous NetFramework Updates on those two PC's.

    I have already restored a two week old image to one PC and performed the "Critical Updates". The problem is gone from that PC.
