Windows/Microsoft Update Not Doing Anything

    I just installed the Windows MCE 2005 upgrade disc that I received from HP,
    after reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling all the applications, etc.
    Prior to installing the MCE 2005 upgrade, I was just running the SP2 version
    of MCE and Windows Update worked fine.

    When I go to Windows Update now, it checks to make sure the most current
    version of the software is installed and then brings me to the page with the
    "Express" and "Custom" buttons. If I click on either of those buttons, the
    progress bar appears but nothing ever scrolls in it telling me that it's
    checking my system for updates and it just remains in that state until I
    close it. Windows Update never responds and tells me that there are no
    updates available or that there are updates available for my computer.

    Is there a way to reinstall Windows Update so that this works correctly? Or
    is there something else you would suggest that I do?

    Any suggestions, anyone? I hate not being able to run Windows Update.
    Nobody has replied so I thought I better ask again.

    Thanks much!
