    I have recently gone back to using Windows 2000 Professional after being non too impressed by XP. I have since installed Service Pack 3, but whenever I try and download Windows Updates that I have selected I get the following error message "Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page, error (0x800A138F)". I have also got 2k Pro on my laptop with SP3 installed, and Windows Updates download fine on that.

    Has anybody else experienced a similar problem? Or does anybody know how to fix it.

    Fixed it. I believe some people are having the same problems with XP Windows Update as well, so if you are here is the fix. Navigate to C:\Winnt\System32\iuctl.dll, and delete the iuctl.dll file. Restart Windows Update and the problem should be fixed.
