    After selecting 1 or more critical items I then click on the install button.
    This brings up the Windows Update download and this now freezing (I have been
    using windows updates fine for months before).

    I have tried the solution below although I was unable to find the folder
    options in the control panel.

    Please re-register the following files:
    regsvr32 msscript.ocx
    regsvr32 dispex.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 scrrun.dll

    1. Click "Start," and then click "Run."
    2. Type regsvr32 msscript.ocx in the "Open" box and click "OK."
    3. Repeat for dispex.dll,vbscript.dll, and scrrun.dll.

    Next, make sure file (open) type .JS is properly associated:
    1. In Control Panel, click "Folder Options," and then click "File Types."
    2. Locate the .JS extension and click "Advanced."
    3. Make sure the "Application to perform action" field contains:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\WScript.exe "%1" %* This is for a Windows XP computer.
    For Windows 2000 substitute the C:\WINDOWS\ with C:\Winnt\. For Windows 98
    and Windows Millenium Edition substitute this: C:\WINDOWS\System\ for

    Someone help?
