    Try this:

    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/thanks.asp

    If you follow the link to the update centre you might be able to use a different browser.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Just a guess, but I would figure that M$ is getting overrun with update request from all the new computers unboxed for Christmas.

    This is based on no fact, other than the knowledge that in my small circle 3 new computers were given as gifts.

    if your friend is not running a "legal" copy of XP the update site will not allow it.

    That is not strickly true Ted,
    It is only the service packs that are blocked with none genuine copies of XP...............Most updates and hotfixes can be installed. The service packs however look at the key befor installation.

    In anycase there are methods to get round this. They have been discussed here befor so i'm not going to go any further here.

    The problems with winupdate may or may knot be malware related, so try the link below.

    Download stinger from mcafee's site. You can get it here


    I had a problem with IE not working at all while firefox was working. After running stinger, it started working again. There are some more registry fixes also available on the same page. Just check it out.

    First, check your Internet Explorer settings to make sure that they are configured correctly for the environment.
    1. In Internet Explorer click "Tools," and then click "Internet Options."
    2. Click "Security."
    3. Click "Custom Level."
    4. Make sure that "File Download" is enabled.
    5. Make sure that "Run Active X controls and plug-ins" is enabled.
    6. Make sure that "Active Scripting" is enabled.
    7. Set your Java Permissions to "Medium safety."
    8. Make sure that "Launching applications and files in an IFRAME" is enabled.
    Make sure you have disabled any ad removal programs, Web accelerators, and anti-virus programs prior to accessing Windows Update. These can cause script errors.
    If the steps above do not resolve this issue you can try the following:
    1. Open Internet Explorer, click "Tools," and then click "Internet Options."
    2. Click "Connections."
    3. Click "LAN Settings."
    4. Delete anything in the Automatic Configure text box and clear the "Use automatic configuration script" check box.
    If none of the above resolves this issue you can attempt to resolve it by registering the
    following DLLs using the instructions below:
    1. Click "Start," and then click "Run."
    2. Type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\vbscript.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.
    3. Then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\mshtml.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.
    4. Then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\msjava.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.
    5. Then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\jscript.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.
    6. Then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\msxml.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.
    7. Then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\actxprxy.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.
    8. Then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system\shdocvw.dll" (without the quotes). Press Enter.

    NOTE: The instructions above assume you are running Windows 98 or Windows ME. For Windows 2000 or Windows NT4, change "windows\system" to "winnt\system32." For Windows XP, if you upgraded from Windows NT 4 or Windows 2000 change "windows\system" to "winnt\system32." Change "windows\system" to "windows\system32" if you installed Windows XP using another method. If your operating system is installed on a drive other than "C," change the drive letter in the instructions above to reference your system drive.

    Once you have completed the above procedures, please restart your computer and access the
    Windows Update site.
