Default Post win2k windows update

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 went to the corporate update site and i found this message

Quote:
To download updates for Windows XP, go to the Windows Update Catalog . Note You must be running Windows XP to access the new Windows Update site.
weirdness.

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

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?

Default Post Maybe you could try this...

Go to the WIndows Update download site:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/Default.htm

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...
