  1. When I try to reach windows update with my windows 2000 server box I get the
    following errormessage when I click the link "scan for updates"

    Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested
    page.

  2. Joakim,

    Is this update installed ? :

    Security Update for Windows 2000 (KB835732)
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...7E-F63A-414C-B3EB-D2342FBB6C00&displaylang=en

    If not, download and save it. Close IE, then install it.
    Restart the system and see if the issue is resolved.

    If it is installed already, try re-registering these files :
    Go to Start, Run, type in

    regsvr32 schannel.dll

    Click OK. You should receive a notification of the successfull or
    unsuccessfull registration of the file.
    Now do the same for these files, clicking OK after inputting each one :

    rsabase.dll

    rsaenh.dll

    Revisit Windows Update to see if the issue is resolved.
    ( If you get an unsuccessfull error message when registering the .dll
    files then you can run sfc /scannow to replace needed system files.
