With regard to the IE7 problem, you may be interested to know that after
uninstalling IE7 I installed IE8 beta 2 and that fixed the scripting
problem. IE8 displays the windows update site properly and in general
works (issues of web site compatibility aside). That's not to imply some
deficiency in IE7, only that whatever was wrong with my XP-SP2 install could
not be fixed by installing IE7. For now I'm happy to use the IE8 beta and
consider the matter resolved. By the way, I haven't forgotten the help you
gave me with this issue last July (in the windows update NG). Thanks!
