    it stopped working for me

    last week i was checking it, told me to install a new plugin to get the update, so i do so, and now it gives me a windows update error. since they changed it to the winxp look, i cant get any updates. anyone have a clue wtf is going on?

    i need to get this working soon caus i wanna install win2k on my new system. this is a retail version of win2k pro, not pirated.

    any clues?

    Works ok for me @ work on my Win2K pro boxen.

    Maybe there was a problem installing the ActiveX control - try removing it from IE if you can find it and it will try to re-install the next time you update

    i dont think removing active x controls is possible, is it?

    i went to the corporate update site and i found this message


    i guess im gonna have to download all updated from the corporated site, burn them, and then install them, thats if windows update doesnt work on the new installation.

    i could try to do a "fix internet explorer" from add/remove, but ive had problems with that before.

    Anything is possible. If I get the time, I'll hunt around on the 'net to see how this may be achieved

    btw, is there a way to reinstall the activex controller without playing around much?
    could have been a falty installation

    update: i deleted the activex controllers from /WINNT/Downloaded Program Files (there was a total of about 3 of them from microsoft, and i deleted all 3)

    i went back to windows update site with hopes that it will install the activex controller again, but it didnt. i tried the same thing with a yahoo controller, and once i went back it reinstalled itself.

    any clue on what i can do here?

    Maybe you could try this...

    Go to the WIndows Update download site:

    Click on "Product Updates" and see if it reloads the "Update update"... I'm at work now and using a different version of Windows, so I can't try it out myself...

    tried that and it didnt work. as soon as u reach the page it's supposed to load up the activex controller if its not installed, but it doesnt do it. driving me mad.
