Cant start Cryptographic service - Error193ocx1

  BriR 23:36 21 Sep 03

I can download, but not install, critical update 824146 (MS03-039). I have been trying for nearly 2 weeks now.
Have visited Black Viper and as suggested in previous threads and tried the various methods/instructions, but none have worked. What is happening now is every time I try to install it i get a message "setup could not verify integrity of the Update.inf. Make sure the cryptographic service is running on this computer"

I know the Crypto service is Stopped, and I know where to start it, but every time I try I get an error message "Could not start cryptographic service on local computer. Error 193:ocx1"
I tried installing via a different method I got error "The cryptographic service could not be started System error 193 has occured. ***is not a valid WIN32 Application"

Anyone got any idea what this is, or where to go from here

Thanks in advance...
