Hi Rob, the thread you are responding to is over 1 year old -
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/e...xp=&sloc=en-us

Please read: How to ask a question: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555375

And then start a new thread explaining what your problem is, what your
operating system and Service pack level is etc including any error codes.

thank you.

Rob in Delaware,

You chose to post on a widely distributed newsgroup (although you *may* have
used a web forum to do so, it is likely just 'synching' with the newsgroups
somehow) and quote *nothing* from the previous conversation and yet - refer
to it consistently. In other words - from the point of view I see (and
probably many others see) - you started a new posting yet seem to be talking
to someone.

After a little searching, I have found your posting and the April 2007
conversation you have decided to attach to...
http://groups.google.com/group/micro...2ed3bddcd45376

At this time - the obvious points are...
- While I was typing this and searching - TaurArian responded in a similar
fashion.
- While TaurArian's response is correct - one has to wonder if you read
through the rest of the conversation to see if there was a fix someone gave
there that worked for you?

Anyway... Just a WAG, but one based off some experience...

Perform the following:

Download, install, run, update and perform a full scan (separately) with the
following two applications (freeware versions are the ones to use for this):

SuperAntiSpyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/

MalwareBytes
http://www.malwarebytes.com/

After performing a full scan with one and then the other and removing
whatever they both find completely, you may uninstall these products,
if you wish.

Reboot.

Start button --> RUN and type in:
%SystemRoot%\system32\net stop wuauserv
--> Click OK.

Start button --> RUN and type in:
%SystemRoot%\system32\regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\system32\wups2.dll
--> Click OK.

Start button --> RUN and type in:
%SystemRoot%\system32\net start wuauserv
--> Click OK.

Download the latest version of the Windows Update agent from here (x86):
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=91237
.... and save it to the root of your C:\ drive. After saving it to the root
of the C:\ drive, do the following:

Close all Internet Explorer Windows and other applications.

Start button --> RUN and type in:
%SystemDrive%\windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe /WUFORCE
--> Click OK.

(If asked, select "Run.) --> Click on NEXT --> Select "I agree" and click on
NEXT --> When it finishes installing, click on "Finish"...

Reboot.

Log on as a user with administrative rights and open Internet Explorer and
visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and select to do a CUSTOM scan...
(Every time you are about to click on something while at these web pages -
first press and hold down the CTRL key while you click on it. You can
release the CTRL key after clicking each time.)

Once the scan is done, select just ONE of the high priority updates
(deselect any others) and install it.

Reboot again.

If it did work - try the web page again - selecting no more than 3-5 at a
time.
The Optional Software updates are generally safe - although I recommend
against the "Windows Search" one. I would completely avoid the Optional
Hardware updates.

Come back - let us know if that worked.
.... Really - come back and let everyone know if that worked.
