    what is going on with my Windows Upgrade? I keep going to the site and it seems to be scanning, and then the page comes up again, and keeps repeating - what is going on? it is really frustrating that Microsoft can't get this right, as I am not the only post on this subject !!!

    Take a look a the following KB article:

    WINUP: "Software Update Incomplete, This Windows Update Software Did Not
    Update Successfully" Error Message When You Visit the Windows Update Web
    Site
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;319585

    You can also manually download and install the Windows Update controls:
    For Windows 98 and Windows Millenium Edition:

    download the controls from
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/cab/x86/ansi/iuctl.cab and

    save them to your desktop. Extract the .cab file following the steps below:



    1. Go to the desktop and right click the iuctl.cab file.

    2. Click "Extract to."

    3. Point to a known location (like the desktop) and click "OK."

    4. Go to the location you selected and right click on the iuctl.inf file.

    5. Click "Install."
