    MS downloads

    Woody's has always been fast at answering my queries - so here's another one.

    I use ME and have tried to get the Windows Update to work BUT
    all that happens is that MS says that it is scanning, gives me the 0% symbol and stays there.
    I am sure that I have to download something - I have not downloaded for sometime.

    Can you help?

    See Microsoft Windows Update Troubleshooter and look for the item Scan Hangs at 0%.

    By chance, do you have the NetSonic Internet accelerator installed?

    Wow that was extremely quick!

    I do have an accelerator installed - cannot remember its name! Why?

    Thanks Hans.

    I have repaired the IE using the info. It still hangs (sigh)

    I think I will now instal the scripting engine as suggested. If that does not work, should I reload IE?

    I hope someone else can help. I don't have Windows ME myself.

    If installing the scripting engine doesn't work, then Google "windows update hangs" and have a look at some of the articles. The scripting engine install has worked for many. Perhaps someone else has suggestions.

    I don't use any 'accelerator'...have cable. I do have ME as my OS (of choice <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> ).
    My question is - do a check of your C:/ProgramFiles/WindowsUpdate (as per attachment), and see if you have the same items listed...maybe you have something missing
