    I am running a Windows XP SP2 and using IE 6. When I try to run
    windows
    update I get the following error message: The website has encountered
    a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The
    options provided below might help you solve the problem. Error Code:
    0x80090305.

    I have reinstalled it, checked for spy-ware and viruses, and cleaned
    cache, history, cookies and temporary files nothing helped.

    Thank you for help in advance,

    Lora

    The requested security package does not exist

    I'm assuming that you can't get past the first part - try reinstalling the ActiveX
    controls :-

    Follow this article -
    The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan for updates when
    you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows XP Service
    Pack 1
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916259
    or use the command: WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

    Reboot and try again.
