    Running IE 6 and Windows XP Home, just reinstalled the OS from scratch,
    downloaded drivers for all hardware except peripherals, registered windows
    and set up dial up netwrok account, then went to install updates before
    installing anti-virus software and received the above message after scan was
    completed and wished to revieew and install updates! Dell are useless and
    Microsoft don't go near OEM stuff so please help!!

    Hi Craig,

    This is typically caused due to connectivity configuration. How are you
    accessing the Internet? If you are using a router, temporarily bypass the
    router.

    A couple other suggestions:

    Register the following Dlls

    Click Start >> Run >> Type the follow command in the Open box.
    "REGSVR32 Urlmon.DLL" (w/o quotes)
    Press Ok.
    Click Start >> Run >> Type the follow command in the Open box.
    "REGSVR32 WINTRUST.DLL" (w/o quotes)
    Press Ok.
    Click Start >> Run >> Type the follow command in the Open box.
    "REGSVR32 SOFTPUB.DLL" (w/o quotes)
    Press Ok.
    Click Start >> Run >> Type the follow command in the Open box.
    "REGSVR32 INITPKI.DLL" (w/o quotes)
    Press Ok.
    Click Start >> Run >> Type the follow command in the Open box.
    "REGSVR32 MSSIP32.DLL" (w/o quotes)
    Press Ok.

    Try Windows Update again.


    Play around with the HTTP 1.1 settings:
    To enable "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections"
    1. Open Internet Explorer, click "Tools," and then click "Internet Options."
    2. Click "Advanced."
    3. Click the "Use HTTP 1.1" check box.
    4. Click the "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections" check box.
    5. Attempt to access the Windows Update site again.
    6. Or try different variations disable all HTTP settings or check on one at
    a time.

    Hi Lucy,

    I have no router, it's a straight dial-up connection. I tried registering
    those dll's and changing the http 1.1 settings but still no luck!

    Any other suggestions?

    Regards,

    Craig.
