WK2: IE hangs when trying to open the Windows Update site

    I have Win2K SP4 with IE 6 SP1.

    I have installed the new Update thingy, enabled the automatic downloading of
    the update - and later cancelled it.

    Since then: IE hangs when I try to access Windows Update site and I cannot
    therefore download the latest security pacs.

    I have tried several things and must say I'm pretty annoyed by the whole
    thing: WK2 is not secure and I cannot get security updates.

    Do I have to reinstall Windows from scratch?

    I am having the same trouble. every time I try to go to Windows Update it
    hangs, and I know I need at least two updates. If anyone has any info please
    help us!

    well, in the meantime, I went to the v4 Update web page and had my PC scanned
    and updated from there - that works well. The exact address of the v4 Update
    page is in a post a bit further in this forum. It should be (typos excepted)
    v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog/en/default.asp

    on this page, select 'Windows Update" on the left hand side under See Also.
    This starts the scan - and still works.

    The v6 update seems to have real problems.
