My Problem Outline:

When trying to run, or enable, "Windows Automatic Updates" (Windows XP Home
Edition, SP 01), I get the following message:

"An exception occurred while trying to run "shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL
"C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuaucpl.cpl",Automatic Updates"

How can I solve this problem?

I do not have a Win XP Installation CD, as it came pre-installed. I have
verified it as an authentic installation through Microsoft. It was suggested
that installing "Windows XP SP 02" would solve this problem, but it crashed
my computer, and I had to uninstall "SP 02" in "Safe Mode".

I would appreciate any assistance with this problem

As we are well aware, updating Windows Security issues is vitally important.

It would be best to post your question to the experts in the Windows
