    ok When i 1st installed the OS it was put on C:\\ then my pc got all jacked up so i reformatted it and reinstalled the OS (windows XP pro) and for some reason it changed my C:\\ to D:\\  ok so i did some research and i got to change my D:\\ back to C:\\ (big mistake nothing but probs LOL) ended up reinstalling the OS again right over the old one didnt reformat again i finally got all of my apps to work and everything is fine and dandy until i try to use windows update i get the error (i exported my registry and used this ultra edit program to change all the D:\\ to C:\\ in the registry everything is fine except for this windows update thing) Sorry for such a long post but i didnt want to leave anything out =)   ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Some keys in the registry can't be changed.  As you can see, it's still looking for d:\. 

    What you should do is determine why exactly it detected your root hard drive as D:\ instead of C:\, and then re-install.
