    Whenever I go to "scan for updates" it never works anymore.

    Anyone know why?

    Thanks.

    Also 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!

    Thanks for the help, but that suggestion didn't work. The update just stays at 0%.

    (I did have that error though. I tried selecting the language, but it doesn't stay selected. And the 'apply' button doesn't bold when I choose it meaning that nothing really changed.))

    Then the language must be the problem. I have not have the need to do this but keep trying different ways to get the language to stick then it should work. Hopefully someone will be able to walk you through it if needed.

    I understand what to do, it just doesn't work. You can't actually select a language. It won't stay highlighted.
