  1. Greetings.

    After posting my problem a few days I am still at the same place in my
    dilemma regarding downloading window XP updates.

    After posting in this forum that I received Error number: 0x800C0002 when I
    try to access the windows update site, I was offered the following
    information below as possible help. (Thank you TaurArian for the help!)

    1. Click on Start, Run and type "REGEDIT" (w/o the quotes). The Registry
    Editor will open.

    2. Navigate to the following key:


    3. If you wish to visit the live (non-Beta) Windows Update web site, make
    sure that the "identserver" value is blank or nonexistent.

    ( I have no idea how to identify if any of the below files are the
    “identserver†from my IUControl. I have typed out exactly what my IUControl
    folder holds below.)

    Name Type Date

    (default) REG_SZ (value not set)
    Historical Speed REG_DWORD 0x000050d0 (20688)
    SelfUpdateStatus REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (0)
    TimeElapsed REG_DWORD 0x00000db9 (3513)

    So, I am at a loss here. Does the above information help at all? If not,
    or if it appears that my problem lies elsewhere, can anyone guild me? I am
    not really that computer savvy and any help would be *very* appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.
