I can not get the "Windows Update" page to load or operate.
THe page will not "scan" for updates. If I click on "windows update" the pc
locks and leaves me sit.

Jack:
Thanks I reread my question, and I don't understand what I said. I had to do
a system recovery from my HP disk. Windows ME, I had trouble updateing to IE6
but got past thjat OK now. When I go to 'start' and try to open Windows
Update, the web page appears, but no error messages or it won't start to scan
for available updates. If I try to close this window, nothing happens it
seems locked-up. I need to Ctrl-Alt-Del, and then find out "Internet
explorer- not responding.

Begin by attempting to repair IE6.
Navigate to Add-Remove Programs, and begin to uninstall IE 6. You will be
offered three options, one of which is to repair it. Select it and proceed
through the restart.

I found it, I wasn't looking for Microsoft, anyway I did the repair option
and then a restart. My pc still will not "scan" to pick which updates I need,
and once that webpage loads, it locks up, and a crtl alt del is necessary yet.
