Here's what you do to fix it. This always works for me.
1) Uninstall HP Update and HP Total Care Advisor from the program list.
2) Reboot the pc.
3) Reinstall HP Update using Recovery Manager by going to Start/All Program/PC Help and Tool and click Recovery Manager.
When the program opens go to Advanced Options, Program Software Reinstallation and go next, then next again and choose HP Update Software from the list, go next and wait for it to reinstall. Then reboot the pc.
4) Important step. You can also try this before the other steps.
Go to start and inside the start search box type "cmd" without the quotes and right above it shows "cmd" with a black icon.
Right-click on cmd and choose Run As Administrator and the command window comes up in elevated mode.
Now type the following commands without the qoutes:
"regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and press enter, then click ok at the notification window then type
"regsvr32 jscript.dll" and press enter, then click ok at the notification window.
Then type exit and reboot the pc.
5) Now you can open up HP Update by going to Start/All Programs/HP Update or start/start search and type update and click HP Update on top.
Step 4 always fixes this.
It took me 1 hour to find this solution.
It's related to a java error and the update 126.96.36.199 for hp updates.
Reply if you got it fixed or if you need further help.

I used the HP web site link you suggested and clicked for the Vista page having the same error codes dealing with the Active support Library update failures. Downloaded the file shown (sp41377.exe) and ran it. Nearing the end of the install, it failed the same way as the other attempts from other HP update links. Next, did the "HP Help and Support' download, thinking that might 'fix..?' whatever the problems is. That download seemed to install fine, however, further attempts to do the Active Library update all failed to install with the same two error codes beginning with 1316.A At a lost as to what to do next to fix this hp problem.....

Hope it works for you also.
