    The New WindowsUpdate...

    When I go to windows update now that it has changed to the new version, all I get is:

    <hr>Windows Update Error


    Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page.

    Select from any of the following pages for information about Windows Update services, or send us your feedback.

    Windows Update Home Page
    About Windows Update
    Support Information

    Send error number to Microsoft (0x80072F76)
    Note This sends error information but does not create a support incident; you may or may not receive a response.<hr>

    This first time I ran it it asked to install the new controls which I allowed it to, but it just does not work. It works fine on my other machines, just not on this one.

    Does anyone know of any workarounds or solutions to this?

    I have sent the error report to MS, but have not had a response, surprisingly <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Do you have any "script blocking" or "pop up blockers" running. If so this may be your problem.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    yes it was my script-blocker that was stopping it... strange how it hadn't interfered with any past versions of windows update...still thats progress I suppose <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    The new version is using scripts where the old did not.
