    For windows update check this out>

    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.

    Do a google search for 'internet explorer Error 0x80004005:'. Look through there & see if it does the trick.

    Do you want to install and run "Windows "update"?



    The publisher cannot be determined due to the problems below.

    A system-level error occured while verifiying trust.

    Unless you have MDAC drivers put things back the way they were. Then try this. (copy the file to the desktop. don't delete it just in case)>

    An Unknown error has occurred...Error Number :0x80004005
    The pop3uidl.dat file is corrupt. This file contains all the information regarding which messages on the server should be downloaded, etc. Try deleting this file (with OE closed), then open OE and check your mail account settings again.

    The default location for the file is at C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Mail\Mail
    That's to do with outlook but it might be affecting IE.

    If that doesn't work try repairing IE if you haven't already done so.

    i think im getting somewhere now!


    this is what it sais now:

    To install items from Windows Update, you must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.

    Note If you are running a Windows 2000 (except DataCenter), Windows XP, or Windows .NET Server 2003 operating system, you can run the local administrator account on your computer without having to log off and then log on again.

    To run as the local administrator in Windows XP or Windows .NET Server 2003:


    Click Start, and then click All Programs (or right-click Windows Update if it is available).
    Right-click Windows Update.
    Click Run as on the menu that appears.
    Do one of the following:
    Enter the password for the administrator.
    Enter the user name, domain name, and password of a different user account that has administrative permissions on this computer.

    To run as the local administrator in Windows 2000:


    Click Start, right-click Windows Update, and then click Run As on the menu that appears.
    Do one of the following:
    Enter the password for the administrator.
    Enter the user name, domain name, and password of a different user account that has administrative permissions on this computer.

    If the option to run as the local administrator is not available:


    Click Start, right-click Windows Update, and then click Properties.
    Click the Shortcut tab, and then select the Run as different user check box.



    i think im logged in as administrator though..what could be the problem?
