    I trying to run Update. When I go to the update page it
    says that, " The Windows Update site has been updated. To
    update your version of the softwareand begin using Windows
    Update, click Update Now."
    I click the button and I get a security warning that
    says, " Do you want to install and
    run "
    tl.CAB?37878. different numbers each time"? When I hit the
    button I just get sent back to the same "update software
    Required" page.

    I am running 98se and I have the latest version of
    explorer when I look in my Windows Update.log file The
    only error that I find continuosly is, 00:16:52
    Error IUENGINE See iuhist.xml for details:
    Download finished (Error 0x8007000B: An attempt was made
    to load a program with an
    incorrect format.)

    Any help would be great, thanx

    I have Windows 98se as well and was having the same
    problem. I contacted Microsoft and they sent me
    instructions on what to do which resolved my problem. I
    posted these instructions on Sept, 13, titled "Solution
    for Windows 98 Update problem" Go back and take a look, it
    should help you.

    Try disabling your anti-virus, and firewall, before trying to download
    the updated software required. I had the same problem. It worked for me,
    I hope this helps.
    Messed up my pc the first time I downloaded it,( the updated software
    ),and i had to do a Go Back. Then I disabled Nortons, and Zone Labs
    until the up-graded software was installed. Now it takes me right to the
    up-date site, and I can scan for updates, and everything downloaded and
    installed with no problems.
