Hi having problems with the windows update site it will not load for me at
all. Just sits there and won't even scan my computer to check for updates
that I need. I have it on automatic update but seems not to work either. I
just don't know what to do with it.
Thanks,
Robin

Robin,

Can you go to the website and manually scan your system? This should work.

Hi, I have gone to the site
http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v5consumer/defaul... and
it just sits there and i the bottom of internet explorer it says done. And
also this is the message i get too: Checking for the latest version of the
Windows Update software...

Depending on your connection speed, this might take a minute. During this
time, you may receive one or more security warnings. Review each security
warning to ensure that the content is signed by Microsoft, and then click
Install or Yes to install the software.

I had try hitting refresh too. And same thing just keeps going to the same
page and can't get any further than this page.

I have road runner cable service. Running windows xp on HP pavilion 763n My
virus program is Etrust EZ antivirus and EZ firewall. Hope this info helps
some.

If you need any other info please let me know I will try to find it, so
someone can help me.

Thank you,
Robin

It could also be that your firewall is preventing access.. I have never
heard of the brand you are using so I don't know how to configure it, but
there must be a setting that enables you to allow access to that site, to
add it to the trusted zone.

I agree. You need to dig into your firewall and make sure it is allowing
access to the Windows Update sites. If all else fails, give tech support at
Road Runner a call.

Robin, I had problems similar to yours. Someone advised me to use the
following URL to get to the Windows update page (note the https rather than
plain http)

https://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v5consumer/defau...

Say Yes to the popup about secure and insecure items. I made a shortcut of
it and have had no problems since. Don't really understand why. Something
to do with security? Still, worth a try.

Hi I did that and I click on yes but still would say the same thing. So I
try again after I stop my firewall and still not working after stopping the
firewall. UGH

Some time ago I had the same problem.
The solution was the changing of the WindowsXP produt key. The one with 25
letters.

Robin,
I had a similar problem as a result of a failed XP SP2 installation, after I
uninstalled it. The solution I found by trawling newsgroups/google etc. Here
is the solution that worked for me.
Problem : Windows update v5 hangs at start.
Solution:
>START>RUN then copy and paste in each of these lines separately, click OK
after each:
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wuapi.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wuaueng.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\atl.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wucltui.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wups.dll
then re-run windows update and fingers crossed it will work for you two.
