While trying to access Windows update,i was informed that the page could not be displayed,due to an error.I then used their help and support which told me to edit the registry in Hkey local machine currentcontrol/set/control/windows and set the csd version to zero,and then restart the pc.None of this has made any difference,and i'm still unable to access the Windows update.Any ideas.I'm using Windows XP.

if your browser security settings are set to high then you will not be able to access windows update and it will throw up an error.set it to medium and it should work.

in internet explorer click tools/internet options/security and adjust here.

im wrong sorry.if it was the security settings the ms web page will tell you to adjust them.

Your firewall may be set to hide the browser details from external sites. Windows update may just be very busy. In the latter case just be persistant. Hope this helps.
