    Whenever I try to open a page which uses active x controls (including the microsoft update page) it tells me the following

    however, I have put the security settings on the lowest, I have enabled ALL scripting and everything else possible, I have no firewall running...

    Any help would be greatly apreciated!

    have you recently disabled any services in your services menu? I know there are a few that need to be active or els winupdate will give you that error

    if this has been a prob since install I can't even guess what is wrong, you could try downloading the winupdates manually but that is just a workaround not a solve...might try a clean xp, sucks but fixes most things heheh

    Try This (All i can think of):
    Goto My Computer
    Right Click on C:
    Select properties
    click on tools tab
    select error checking
    tell it to fix errors
    then you will have to reboot to do error checking
    make sure you have something to do for the next hour cuzz it is slow as ****.

    This is all i know to do...

    I just did the error checking, and I still have the same problem. Do you think I will be able to contact Microsoft for free? I do not feel like paying $40 for something which is thier fault!
