When I type in. Regsvr32 wups2.dll I get an error message that says load library wups2.dll failed specified module could not be found
Well, you can't register it if it ain't there
Open the WindowsDownloaded Program Files folder, right-click MUWebControl Class, click Remove and Yes. Repeat for WUWebControl Class.
Open the Windows\SoftwareDistribution\WebSetup folder and rename wsus3setup.inf to wsus3setup.inf.OLD (note: the file or the folder itself may not be present).
Visit windowsupdate.microsoft.com and allow the software to reinstall.

what i did is download win xp sp3 and install it
That makes complete sense — support for Windows XP with SP2 ended years ago, so Microsoft doesn't need to let Windows Update work on XP installations not upgraded to SP3. Too bad their published "fixes" don't mention that ...
Complete links to SP3 information and download (just ignore the remarks about "intended for IT professionals and developers") —

I tried the .exe file but when i tried to run it, it said is was "not a valid win32 application"
Probably the file was either corrupted or truncated during the download, which has been reported occasionally for this update. Right-click the file and click Properties. The file size should be 331,805,736 bytes; anything else means a bad file. You can also click the signature tab and double-click the signer's name to verify the file.

I get "File is corrupt"
Most likely it was corrupted during the download, as occasionally happens. Right-click the file and click Properties. If the Digital Signatures tab is missing, the file may be corrupted. Click the tab if it's present, then click the name in the signature list ("Microsoft") and click Details. If the signature is reported as invalid, or an error of any kind is shown, the file is corrupted.
Your only recourse to download the file again.
Regarding detection of file corruption —
A utility to determine if a file is intact is Microsoft's file verifier. To be useful, the file's checksum must be known.
Download and run the program, When prompted for the destination, type
then click OK.
Open the folder containing the SP3 file (WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe). Click Start and Run, type CMD and click OK to open a command prompt.
Type FCIV -MD5 followed by a space. Click & drag WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe into the command prompt window, then click in the window and press Enter. The MD5 checksum for the file should be
This value is unique to the XP SP3 file. If a different value is returned, the file is corrupted.
Another such utility is SigVerif (Signature Verification), included with XP, but it's only applicable to signed files such as SP3. To use it in this case, click Start and Run, type SIGVERIF and click OK. Click Advanced, and select "Look for other files...".
In "Look in this folder", type the path to the folder containing the SP3 file (e.g., I:SP3_4_XP). If you're not sure of the path, right-click the file and click Properties, and copy the value beside Location.
Click OK. Click Start, and be patient — large files take some time to read. When done, click Close to dismiss the Results pane, then click Advanced, Logging, and View Log. The file is okay if Signed appears in the Status column.
[ EDIT: The MD5 checksum for my copy of the XP SP3 ISO (xpsp3_5512.080413-2113_usa_x86fre_spcd.iso, dated Apr 14, 2008) is
The ISO was also released as en_windows_xp_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-60489.iso (Jun 30, 2008), and the two are identical.
From where did you acquire your copy? ]
