Hi

I am getting this problem increasingly that more and more new pcs fail to
download windows update. All pcs are dell which come preinstalled with win
xp pro sp2 and are connected to an sbs2003 server. All internet connectivity
is fine and office update works fine too. The problem with windows update is
that the download box comes up but for each update it says "failed!". Tried
several times but the results are the same.

What is the problem and how can I fix it?

Thanks

Regards

Some suggestions:

Please re-register the following files:

1. Click "Start," and then click "Run."

2. Type regsvr32 msscript.ocx in the "Open" box and click "OK."

3. Repeat for dispex.dll,vbscript.dll, and scrrun.dll.
