    I could understand getting that message if I were attempting to update a
    WinXP or Win2000 machine ... but I'm working with a Win98SE machine that
    apparently has delusions of grandeur. Can anyone out there explain to me why
    I'm getting this message, and what to do about it? None of the MS-offered
    fixes seem to apply, because they're all intended for actual XP or 2000
    machines ... not my poor 98!

    Under Win98 is posible implement some policy settings using the regedit
    editor, so go to start /run and type "regedit" (without quotes) navigate
    to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\

    And see in the right panel if a NoWindowsUpdate value exists and delete it.


    Also, see if the same value exists under the key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\

    Thanks so much for your speedy response ... but I had already tried those
    two keys ... without luck ... the Policies\Explorer keys don't exist!

    I am having the same problem in Win 98se. Are you having any problems in
    Windows Explorer when using the view as Web Page mode?

    Yes I have had both these problems since downloading the last 2 critical
    updates especially 896688.. After pulling hair out for 3 days (now bald) and
    exploring most avenues mentioned I finally Restored my oldest Registry Backup
    of the 5 saved by Microsoft and installed that in DOS mode. Seems to have
    cured it as everything went back to normal after a reboot. Just in case I am
    manually also saving the Registery on disc just in case I have been too
    optimistic. So far so good!!
