I have changed from very fast cable to slow phone connection.

Even though I manage most downloads, I am unable to get Windows Update to
work.

The page open I click yes and then the screen stays with the message that it
is checking but never changes from 0%.

What cab going wrong?

I need to get the latest updates (I've been away for 2 months) and am Stuck.

I have 98SE


Help..

http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/troubleshoot/
There is at least one mention of your condition there. Go look.

Is your system clock/date correct? If it is off by a lot (months),
Windows update will not work.

Here is one thing to try... Most of the following shall never return
again, and were work files, pre-V4 Windows Update:

(a) "START, Settings, Folder Options, View tab"; bolt "Show all
files" & UNcheck "Hide file extensions...".
(b) Open Explorer to "C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate", and
(c) Delete everything in this folder EXCEPT the V4 folder.
(d) Open the V4 folder, and delete everything in it EXCEPT for the
"iuhist.xml" file.

Try the other measures in this URL...

Aside from PCR's advice, you could try the MS Corporate site for update.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/corporate....

And for any IE updates:

Hello and thanks

I tried everything that you mesntioned and still the page hangs (not the
computer) when I get to

Windows Update is looking for an update 0% Complete

I have Kerio Firewall (I have tries disabling it and McAfee) and Kerio shows
that when I open M/S 4 ports open, say:
all:1090, all: 1095, all: 1096, all: 1097

and that they are connected out to proxy.power.clix.pt:80

Now, Clix.pt is my current server. I never had any problems before with my
previous cable provider. Could it be that it is Clix, the server that is
blocking the download? Can't get through to them...

I would have thought that Kerio would show the remore address as Microsoft
and not Clix.

Could that be the problem?

Thank you very much

Jorge

Just a thought but since you were on a cable, check to see if some of
your settings may have changed. In INTERNET EXPLORER, click on
TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS/CONNECTIONS tab then click on LAN SETTINGS and
make sure the checkmark is removed in
"automatically detect settings".

Hope this helps

I'm not sure where you are seeing all that in Kerio, what tab? I
couldn't see any ports opening during a scan for updates just now-- or
any ports at all, actually. To see whether it's a Kerio setting/rule
doing it, R-Clk Kerio in your Tray & disable it by selecting "EXIT".
Then, I'll go looking for ports again, if that was it.

(But I see below you suspect something else. Soon, I'll respond to
that.)

OK, I see it now. Windows Update does open new ports for IE that show in
Kerio. Windows Update was through & the ports disappeared before I could
jot them down. It looked like ports 443 & 80, maybe.

I doubt that is the problem, but try that EXIT button, before I give it
another go.

Thanks

I checked it and it was ok, unchecked.

It seems to me that something is missing. Some file, I don't know.

Is it possible to uninstall the update engine and reinstall? If such a
thing exists...

Hello PCR/Brian/Dapper Dan


I think I found out what the problem is:
http://www.support.microsoft.com/kb/241783/EN-US/

It looks as my server is blocking the download.

Now I don't know how to go about points 1 and 2 of the Resolution

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

1. Clear the proxy cache and configure it to exclude the Windows Update
site.

Note See your software documentation or contact the software manufacturer if
you want help with the proxy server or firewall software configuration.

2. Open port 80.
3. Add Windows Update to the Trusted Sites Zone.


Can you help?

I don't know about your proxy server. I'm sure we can figure how to get
it right in Kerio, if that proves to be the problem. What shows at
"R-Clk Kerio in Tray, Administration, Advanced button, Microsoft
Networking button"?

Well, are you tried BOTH solutions at...
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/troubleshoot/

This is the easier one...
........Quote.............
Problem Description:
The Scan function hangs at 0%

Resolutions:
Suggestion 1:

Install the latest scripting engine 5.6 from:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/down...

Suggestion 2:

Repair Internet Explorer

1. Open up Control Panel.
2. Open Add/remove programs.
3. Select Microsoft Internet Explorer and Internet Tools.
4. Click Add/remove.
5. Click Repair.
6. Follow the steps provided by the Repair Wizard.
7. Click OK

And, here is the tougher....
........Quote..............
Problem Description:
After clicking Scan for Updates, you receive this message: "Windows
Update is looking for available updates... 0% complete.". Then the site
stops communicating.

Resolutions:
There are several possible solutions to this problem.

Install the latest scripting engine 5.6 from:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/down...
------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
If you have Netsonic on your computer, uninstall it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
If you have not installed the latest version of Windows Update software,
follow the
instructions in the article "Manual installation instructions for
Windows Update controls" on this page.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
Disable the options "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic
configuration script."
To do this:
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click "Tools," and then click "Internet Options."
3. Click "Connections," and then click "LAN Settings."
4. Make sure the check boxes for "Automatically detect settings" and
"Use automatic configuration script" are not selected.

Try to access the Windows Update site again.

Also, verify that you can connect to SSL-enabled Web sites (sites that
start with https://).

Most online retailers use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) sites during the
checkout/payment process. If you've connected to one of these sites in
the past then chances are that SSL is working correctly on your
computer. You can also test your ability to connect to SSL sites using
a SSL test site like this:

https://www.stanford.edu/group/idg/leland/samples/secur...

If you cannot connect to SSL sites then the Windows Update scan will not
work. Make sure that the SSL port (port 443) is open on your network.

Hello PCR

I'm not sure I understood your message. I did try the download with and
without Kerio being on.

But did you see my previous message? It seems it has to do with the proxy
Server on the Service Provider.

Problem is I don't know how to go through points 1 and 2 of the Resolution
that I pasted before.

Can you help there?


Thanks

Jorge

You've proven it isn't Kerio doing it, then. I'm not sure I can figure
your proxy server settings. See the other portion of this thread.

Hello PCR

First: YES I did all those below and did not help. I hoped the "The scan
function hangs at 0%" would solve it all as it is exactly what isd
happening, but it did not!

Now, Kerio (As I told you I have tried to download with Kerio off, so I
guess what is in the M/S Networking button might not be very useful)

Allow Microsoft networking Name resolution = checked
From trusted addresses only = checked

Allow other users to accesss my shared folders/ printers = checked (I had
two computers networking before)

From trustee adresses only = checked

Trusted address group = 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0

Hope it helps.

Jorge

Well, if you are Networking, I suppose your settings are rightfully
different from mine. I am only checked... "For Microsoft Networking Use
These Rules Instead of Filter Rules". And my trusted addresses are a tad
different. But you had Kerio exited, & the problem persisted. Therefore,
it can't be that.

I guess you must get a response from your proxy server as to what those
rules should be.

Too bad "The scan function hangs at 0%" didn't work. You did try
"Windows Update is looking for available updates... 0% complete"? What
were your "LAN Settings"? Actually, I am only checked "Automatically
detect settings" there. I suppose you are checked to use the proxy
server, right? Here is the blurb for that...

"Specifies to connect to the Internet through a proxy server by using
the settings you specify. A proxy server acts as an intermediary between
your internal network (intranet) and the Internet, retrieving files from
remote Web servers."

Thanks Robear

I had already tried most of those.

The only query I have now is

Also, verify that you can connect to SSL-enabled Web sites (sites that start
with https://).

Most online retailers use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) sites during the
checkout/payment process. If you've connected to one of these sites in the
past then chances are that SSL is working correctly on your computer. You
can also test your ability to connect to SSL sites using a SSL test site
like this:

https://www.stanford.edu/group/idg/leland/samples/secur...

If you cannot connect to SSL sites then the Windows Update scan will not
work. Make sure that the SSL port (port 443) is open on your network.


I tried that site but got a wrong messge. I'm not sure if that means I can
or cannot access SSL sites.
Also I don't know how to make sure port 443 is open

Can you help?

Thank you

Jorge

Have you now tried all of them? Have you tried temporarily disabling your
anti-virus application and/or firewall? (Be careful!)

> I tried that site but got a wrong messge.

Object Not Found/Error 404? (Me, too.)

Can you reach https://windowsupdate.microsoft.com or, e.g., your online
banking web-pages? If so, SSL is working.

Note that KB241783 applies to WinNT Workstation 4.0 Developer Edition and
not Win98. A Proxy Server is not the same thing as a dial-up connection
using a proxy:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;164084#XSLTH3124121121120121120120.
Your ISP may use a Proxy Server but you can neither clear its Proxy Cache
nor configure it to exclude Windows Update website.

Can you confirm that you're using a proxy with your dial-up connection?
(Tip: Disable any "internet accelerators")

You would "open Port 80" via your Kerio firewall.

Did you add all of the following to Trusted Sites?

http://www.download.windowsupdate.com
http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
https://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com

What's the new dial-up ISP and did you install any ISP-provided software?

Hi

Yes I can get to my Bank and transfer money etc.

I also manage to download everything, including McAfee's updates.

I have tried disabling Anti Virus/Firewall and no diff.

Did you read my earlier message about Proxy Servers?

I'll paste it again:

I think I found out what the problem is:
http://www.support.microsoft.com/kb/241783/EN-US/

It looks as my server is blocking the download.

Now I don't know how to go about points 1 and 2 of the Resolution

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

1. Clear the proxy cache and configure it to exclude the Windows Update
site.

Note See your software documentation or contact the software manufacturer if
you want help with the proxy server or firewall software configuration.

2. Open port 80.
3. Add Windows Update to the Trusted Sites Zone.


Can you help?

How do I clear the proxy cache? And how do I open port 80?

thanks

As PA said elsewhere in this thread (& you didn't answer his questions
there)...
news:o vRC1ixsFHA.2792@tk2msftngp13.phx.gbl
.......Quote.........
Did you add all of the following to Trusted Sites?

http://www.download.windowsupdate.com
http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
https://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com
.......EOQ...........

I've never found a need to do it, but...

(1) "Control Panel, Internet Options, Security tab"
(2) Click "Trusted Sites" in the "Select a Web content zone..." window.
(3) Click the "Sites" button, & copy/paste those URLs into it.

Also, port 80 seems to open & close as needed automatically (shown in
Kerio) when I go to Windows Update.

I've already hinted I know nothing of proxy issues. Let this thread be
on your head, now, PA! OK, bye.

Hello PA Bear

First I paste something I wrote before regarding proxy

I have Kerio Firewall (I have tries disabling it and McAfee) and Kerio shows
that when I open M/S 4 ports open, say:
all:1090, all: 1095, all: 1096, all: 1097

and that they are connected out to proxy.power.clix.pt:80

Now, Clix.pt is my current server. I never had any problems before with my
previous cable provider. Could it be that it is Clix, the server that is
blocking the download? Can't get through to them...

I would have thought that Kerio would show the remore address as Microsoft
and not Clix.

Could that be the problem?

---

Port 80 : I guess we can forget about that as I tried with Firewall off and
it still did not download

Trusted sites http://*.microsoft.com

As for: What's the new dial-up ISP and did you install any ISP-provided
software?

ISP is www.clix.pt

They may have downloaded something without my knowing. The problem only
started when I changed over to them.
I also at the same time downloaded Skype, but don't see how that could
affect it.

Something seems to be blocking access, but according to AdAware, McAdee,
Houseclean my system is ok.


Any help much appreciated. I don't like to give up.


Jorge

> ...proxy.power.clix.pt:80

This tells us that you are indeed connecting via a proxy. You may have
installed an "internet accelerator" offered by clix.pt. Such accelerators
are seldom free and ISPs usually don't install anything without your
permission.

My research indicates that you can contact the Proxy Cache Administrator at
proxy@isp.novis.pt. (clix.pt actually points to novis.pt as its real
owner).

Do you know others who use the same ISP (dial-up)? Are they having similar
problems reaching Windows Update?

news://msnews.microsoft.com/http://novis.pt/ (to which I have crossposted
this reply).

Jorge,

Também estou no Clix ADSL e não tenho, nem nunca tive, problemas com o
Windows Update.

In English:
I'm using the same ISP, Clix ADSL, and don't have, never had, problems with
Windows Update.

Well I've tried just about ecerything.

One more point:

Is there a way of checking if certain ports are open? Port 80, Port 443, for
instance?


Thanks

I saw IE open & close them (ports 80 & 443) in Kerio, during a Windows
Update. It was at the Firewall Status screen, under Local Address after
unchecking "Don't show port name" in the settings menu.

You say you see your proxy server doing stuff there, which is Clix.
Poster oops!! in this thread has Clix with no problem. But I think you
must discuss it with them, or wait for Bear to come back out of
hibernation.

By the way, neither of those "SSL" test sites worked for me, giving
different error messages...

https://www.stanford.edu/group/idg/leland/samples/secur...
Object Not Found/Error 404

https://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
The page cannot be displayed

YET, Windows Update works just fine!

Ok, I give up!

I did a House Call check and it returned 3 risk level issues, which are
obviously connected to the latest windows updates that I have been unabnle
to download

I looked at them and got confused and afraid of downloading the wrong thing.
Can you help?

They refer to
MS99-034
MS05-037
MS05-038

I have 98Se

Could you give me the necessary download sites for this?

Thanks again

Jorge

1. First make certain the machine's free of hijackware and Trojans.

When all else fails, HijackThis v1.99.1
(http://aumha.net/downloads/hijackthis.zip) is the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware. **Post
your log to http://forums.spywareinfo.com/,
http://castlecops.com/forum67.html or http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30
for expert analysis, not here.**

2. If you've been keeping up-to-date at Windows Update before this (and
from your headers, it appears that you have), you'll already have MS99-034
installed. [MS99-034 can be downloaded for manual installation via
http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/contents/W... ]

3. MS05-037 and MS05-038 can be downloaded for manual installation via the
Windows Update Catalog
(http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog/en/defaul...)... but if you
can reach that site, you should be able to reach
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com to download them.
