HELP! Windows Update Totally Messed Up!!!
I have a problem on a customer's computer that is kicking my butt. He had
multiple viruses which I removed, then repaired the XP Home SP2 install with
the original CD. Everything is working fine except updates. If I go to
Microsoft Update, it hangs IE 6 and I have to force a quit in Task Manager.
On what I think is a related problem, I went to Security Center, and tried
to change the setting for Automatic Updates and a window would not launch.
After that, the computer didn't completely freeze but hung up so badly I had
to power it off to shut it down.
I believe it's possible that some of the files for Automatic Update were
quarantined during the virus removal process but don't know for sure...
Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
