    I am trying to update my computer (XP) (I am mainly
    trying to update ActiveX) But when I go to the site, I
    get the message in the subject. My settings havent been
    changed lately, it just started doing it. I also get
    this on some other pages. Does anyone know how to fix
    it? At first I got this error on the update page that
    said update incomplete or something, and I had to delete
    some stuff for ActiveX to fix it (some .dll items) And
    now I get something that says i'm not an administrator on
    my computer, even though I am. I think it has to do with
    the fact that I can't start ActiveX. How do I fix this?
    I think all I need are new ActiveX files, but I may be
    wrong. Thanks for any help.

    Hmm I just tried that and it didnt work. Should I try
    finding a site to download the two files (the new files)
    ActiveX needs that the microsoft page told me to delete
    (the old files)to be able to update?

    If you cannot connect to Hotmail, MSN email, or similar sites, then there is something more
    seriously at issue on your system than just problems with Windows Update.

    There could be several causes for the above, but it certainly sounds like a security issue. It may
    save you time if you are able to do a Repair install of XP then re-apply XP SP-1.

    If you can't do the Repair install, or if you continue to get the same errors, then please check the
    C:\Windows\Windows Update.log file on your system. Open it with Notepad, then scroll down to the
    bottom. Post back here with the last (Error : xxxxxxxx) entry you see listed there.
