    When I go to Windows Update it says "Access Denied"

    What's up?

    By any chance, Are you suing Avant's Built-in Proxy setup?

    Avant used to give me those errors when I was using the proxy setup.

    Microsoft is probably picky with how you update Windows, you need to use standalone IE. Try just using standalone IE and see what happens.

    turn off all your pop up stoppers, make sure trhe service is enabled, try turning off the firewall.

    stuff like that

    Almost positive that you have to use IE to get to Windows Update. If it is still failing using IE then something else is wrong. Sorry not much help here.

    You need Cryptographic Services set to Automatic to use Windows Update. Also make sure you clock is set to the correct date and time.

    See if this does anything>

    Windows Update - Error

    If you cannot update XP check your c:\windows\windows update.log. If you have this error: Error 0x800C0008 then go to Tools\internet options\languages. You must have one language selected. Boom windows update works again!

    Or for LAN settings

    Go to control panel, open up Internet Options\Connections. Click on the Lan Settings button at the bottom right of the window. Untick Automatically detect settings.
