    I first received update message again and again. To deal
    with this problem I followed instructions on FAQ page.
    After doing that I receive a SYTEM ADMINISTRATOR only
    message with instructions for WIN 2000 or XP. Once again I
    went to FAQ page and followed instructions which had me in
    the registry. I clicked through but the path died after
    plocies. I believe I was to find Explorer but it wasn't
    there . Any ideas?

    If you have a Windows logon prompt at startup and hit Cancel or OK
    without entering a username or password, try this :

    How to Prevent a Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me Logon Prompt at

    IF not, go here and follow the steps for Win 98 :

    **Delete the contents of the C:\WUTemp if present**

    IMPORTANT : Your antivirus program MUST be temporarily disabled prior to
    the download and installation of the Windows Update ActiveX software
    controls or any Windows Updates. Failure to do so will result in the
    iuctl.cab file being corrupted/damaged and/or show as a 0 KB file .
    Failure to do so in regards to Windows Updates will result in
    damaged/corrupted downloads and damaged/corrupted/incomplete
    installations. Spyblocking software (pop-up stoppers included) and
    incorrectly configured firewalls may prevent access to the Windows
    Update site or the attempt to download and install updates/patches, also.
