Hi

I am getting below events in the event log. What do these mean and how can I
fix them?

Thanks

Regards

This is a known issue with the WU v5 client. It has to do with how the
client agent interacts with the Jet database engine. This is something
we'll consider fixing in a future version of the WU client. I'm not aware
of work arounds for this issue, sorry.

The only work around to stop them is to disable the WU completely; That
requires not only turning it off in system properties but also stopping the
update service.

That leaves all updating to you, and you cant use the WU webpage because you
have turned it off. To get updates you need to be subscribed to the MS
technet update list to be notified by email of available updates, then
manually download and install them AFTER having confirmed that you actually
need the updates...


WU v5 still works with the ESENT info messages, So I'd suggest just ignoring
them.
