    Can somone help me please? I cannot Download Security M/S Updates and now
    there are (85) of them See Below! There seems to be a lot of this C...P going
    on! However mine is more unusual and I have tried the Start> RUN> CMD sys32
    etc" Nothing
    I have also tried “all Firewalls off" and I have also checked IE 7 tools
    options re: security level etc" all Ok?
    However the last suggestion involved Checking Changing settings at
    Win Explore >Programs > Windows Updates! But there is NO folder called
    "Windows Update Folder " in "Programs" on my computer??? If anyone can help I
    would Appreciate it as now my computer is taking Ages "15 min" to Startup as
    well I don't know if this is related thanks in Hope. Dasha

    Hi Dasha,

    You're actually on the wrong forum for XP, but I'll make a few comments anyway

    Please confirm your system clock and Time Zone also the Date set properly,
    Having it set incorrectly can cause this type of behavior.

    Test this WGA diagnose test, connection to MS, that scripts working and a
    new Validation tool
    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/


    Download CCleaner and Dial-ª-fix

    Ccleaner - http://www.ccleaner.com ;
    Note, uncheck Yahoos toolbar during instªll.

    Do the scans with all the check marks ºn.

    Run the above remover in safe mode then Ccleaner on all 3
    settings(windows,apps & issues) and clear anything found reboot and see if it
    still exists.

    NOTE - The first time you run CCleaner's Issues scanner you'll have to keep
    running it back-to-back until it finds nothing. One scenario is a registry
    key may only be a reference pointing to a completely different location in
    the registry and when it's removed then that reference link is also noticed
    as being invalid on a subsequent scan. It's generally a good idea to keep
    running the Issues scan until nothing is listed.



    There is also a third-party fix which has had good results for a number of
    folks here:
    Dial-ª--Fix
    http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix ;

    Run this program with all the functions activated in safe mode. --it may
    look as if the scan has frozen. DAF is actually doing lots of shoveling and
    shuffling, so don't interrupt it.

    Please read the page and Scroll down about 2/3 of the way to Download
    Dial-ª-fix

    Exit Safe Mode (Reboot)

    Try the updates n0w


    I hope this post is helpful.

    Let us know how it works ºut

    You didn't say, or at least it's not clear, whether you tried getting the
    updates using Internet Explorer, by going here:

    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

    Some new ActiveX software has to be installed on XP before your computer can
    be scanned. Just follow the prompts to do so, but it should then list and
    download the same updates, and install them, as those you see in the taskbar
    notification. If going to the site is successful, keep going back until
    there are no more critical updates to install.

    to D/load the Updates from when I shut down at nite: "Do not turn off Comp
    downloading updates etc" (thats how I have accrued 85 of em) as well as the

    Dear Engel My deepest Gratitude goes to you! I did all youi said and it
    worked I have just downloaded the whole (85) without a hitch and everything
    is well! I am not sure exactly which suggestion it was but I had CCleaner and
    use it all the time (on Friday) but NEVER knew about the "ISSUES scan" and
    boy was there some Garbage "Shovelled" out of that lot" that also means that
    all the Defragging and weekly maintnence I have been doing has not been up
    to scratch! I will start reading the "README's" in future" I also beleve that
    "Dialafix" played a part too as on the CC reboot it still tried to D/Load the
    85 and failed also another guy called Dean Dean gave me some tip's and
    correct Help Siotesto go to and I did those as well but the thing's Dean Dean
    suuggested were in order but I am stil gonna thank him for his time and help!
    Again Engel thank you very very much you are grately appreciated Dasha

    BTW Dasha,

    Thanks for posting back and thanking another very dedicated and
    knowledgeable user, (Dean). That's always a nice jester when we get back a
    post indicating if the suggestions were helpful or not.

    A remainder, use CCleaner always (Friday ;-)) in safe mode, on this way is
    safety for your PC.

    Don't over use the “Issuesâ€. Is good to use it special after you uninstall a
    program.

    Also use the belt & suspenders before any cleaning, use a Restore Point
    before the actions

    Good luck

    Many thanks for this question and answer. As it happens, I had the same
    problem, and although CCleaner didn't resolve it, Dial-a-Fix did.

    Hey Engel,
    I was in the same position as Dasha, having trouble with installing updates
    and I followed your advice to a tee and got success, so all I can say is
    "THANK YOU", "Thank You", "Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Coincidently the last download is the one that solved the problem, for
    anyone having similar problems.
    Thanks again Engel.
    Heres the site again for anyone having trouble:

    I've been having essentially the same problem... unable to successfully
    install updates. Running the CCleaner and rebooting as you suggested seems to
    have done the trick. thanks

    Hi Selenac,

    You see, only with the Ccleaner you was able to fix your problem. There is
    no "single" solution that fits everybody's prºblems. ;-)

    Thank you for the feed back
