    Can't activate auto updates (XP Media edition, SR2)

    Since Christmas, I haven't been able to get any updates for Windows or for AVG. Both seem to have stopped at the same time. When I try to restart auto updates in Windows, either through the Control Panel or the Windows security center on the right side of the task bar, nothing happens. About the same time, I started getting message from AVG Pro v7.5 that there's an "error condition" tha always comes out as my virus data base being out of date. The last update was on 24 December 2006. I've emailed AVG's but received no reply.

    Has your firewall blocked these two items?

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

    Bruce,
    Try to run these regservice commands to reregister the files needed for Windows Update. They may help with you other updated or not but these are what MS recommends for WU.

    Click START>RUN and type in the following:

    regsvr32 JSCRIPT.DLL. click OK

    Continue with each new DLL in the same manner as above.

    (REGSVR32 XXXX.DLL CLICK OK AFTER EACH COMMAND.)

    MSXML3.DLL
    ATL.DLL
    WUAPI.DLL
    WUAUENG.DLL
    WUCLTUI.DLL
    WUPS.DLL
    WUWEB.DLL

    Reboot and try Update again.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
