    although our windows is not state of art on all computers
    the automatic update routine does not work properly. Some
    of our 98se machines just get the message that there is
    not any update - in spite of the fact that we run iE 5.0
    What can I do to update even this ones ???

    Thanks for any advice

    W.D. John,

    In the WINDOWS folder you'll find a Windows Update.log. Open it with
    Notepad. Scroll down towards the bottom ... if you find these error
    codes - 0x800C0008 or 0x80072EE4 try this :

    Check the date and time of each computer to ensure that they are accurate.
    Open Internet Options via the Control Panel. On the first page (General)
    click the Languages button. Make sure that a language has been chosen
    for Internet Explorer.
    Now, where it says Temporary Internet files click Settings, click View
    Files. Delete all files and Cookies.

    Never Forgotten
