Windows Update for Win98 no updates available

  Zak 20:25 10 May 2003

Just checked Windows Update and received message that no updates available.

For one I know that the Critical update Notification Update should still be sitting there as I have not downloaded it.

Secondly I am unable to view Windows Update download history or catalogue.

Anyone else experiencing this problem this evening?

I've just had a look and the catalog's available including all the 98 stuff. Try 'personalise Windows update' to get the menu options.

I'm still getting Win98 updates - you are perhaps thinking of the fact that MS is due to cease support for this OS in the next few weeks; hardly surprising in view of its age in relation to the "newcomers".

I tried rebooting and still had the same problem.

Windows Update.log showed error 0x800C0008 and on trying to access the WU Catalogue error 0x800A138F.

I checked out Windows Update Suport Self Help. Unfortunately none of the suggestions applied as my settings were already as stated.

I then deleted all my temp internet files, rebooted and on accessing Windows Update all now works perfectly.
