Windows xp updates question
When I try to update Windows XP IE will not load page. It's as if the page
didn't exist. I go click on 'Tools/Window Update' but the MS update page
will not be found.

How can I fix this?

Windows XP _____ Edition with Service Pack _ __-Bit?
Internet Explorer version _?

Assuming some 32-bit version of Windows XP with at least Service Pack 2...

You might first try resetting all Internet Explorer settings and ensuring
that *no* proxies are set/being used and the HOSTS file has not been edited.

Check for malware and remove whatever is found (MalwareBytes is a great free
tool to do this with.)

Remove any third-party firewall software.

Are you familiar with the word "virus?"

Re: Windows xp updates question
Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) when posting in a forum or
newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?
