    When I start Windows Update, an ActiveX error message
    displays saying the IE setup wont allow ActiveX scripts on
    this page to run.

    Then a window displays inviting me to download the latest
    version of Windows Update. I accept and the ActiveX error
    message (above) appears again. Thereafter, I'm in a loop.

    Any thoughts ?

    Check to see that Discuss is not enabled in IE. Open IE, click View,
    point to Explorer Bar, Discuss. If it's checked, click on it to disable it.

    If that does not resolve the issue go here and follow the steps for your
    version of Windows :

    NOTE: Under the " Remove the Windows Update ActiveX Controls " heading
    the correct location for the iuctl.dll and iuengine.dll files in Windows
    ME is the WINDOWS\System folder. For all versions of Windows remove the
    Update Class file found in WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files. Right click
    it and choose Remove.

    YOU MUST temporarily disable your antivirus program (re: Norton &
    Mcafee) prior to any attempt to access Windows Update, download, or
    install updates or software. Failure to do so will result in the
    software controls (iuctl.cab) becoming corrupted, the update files
    becoming corrupted or damaged, incomplete and damaged installations of
