When I click "Windows update" from the start menu, It loads a browser, then
I select "scan for updates" and off it goes....I get "windows is looking for
available updates, then I get an error message:

Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close ...

"More information" gives this:
AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 6.0.2600.0 ModName: ntdll.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.0 Offset: 0000215c



Any ideas please ?

Out of frustration... and the fact that it was 3am, and bourbon powered - I decided to use system restore... a couple of progs needed reinstalling, but its fine now (famous last words !!!)

Thanks

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
