    Office update won't run after windows update (IE 6, Windows2000)

    I ran Windows update earlier tonight.
    No problems installing 20 required and 3 optional updates.

    When I then tried Office Update, I kept getting a message that cookies are not enabled.
    I tried all sorts of settings, nothing worked.

    I then tried to set IE 6 as the default browser.
    Normally, IE 6 will gleefully check whether it is default browser, but it's not.

    I can only conclude that one of the windows updates has broken IE 6.

    Any ideas on how I can run Office update?

    I am using Windows 2000 SP4.

    Problem was not current Windows Update.
    I tried another OS that has not run Windows Update for a few months.

    Same problem, so Office Update appears to be misinterpreting cookie settings.

    Problem solved.

    Somehow, since I last did an Office Update, all cookies for microsoft.com had been blocked
