    I have just re-installed Windows XP on my machine and now I am unable to run the Windows Update. I am able to access the site and then get prompted to install the updater and then when I click on Scan for Updates. I get to the following screen where is shows the percentage and it just sits a 0% or 25% and nothing else happens. HELP PLEASE !!!!!. This worked fine before the re-install. I have installed JVM and am still having problems. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Try this:

    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!

    Still get an "unexpected error"

    Are there any expected errors?
