I'd call that out of the ordinary...  Does this file exist on the
machine?
%systemroot%\system32\wuauserv.dll?

You could try reinstalling the service using the SC resource kit tool.
The path to the executable for this service is.
[your windows directory]\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

For good measure, you may also want to execute
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
