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.

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.

try enabling automatic uodates and see if the computer will do it autromatucally

browse with ie or leave ie running with the service enabled

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

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
