IE Freezes In Windows Update / OE Won't Download

  Jester2K II 11:50 22 Oct 2003

Windows XP Home Ed - fully patches and updated.

IE6 SP1 - fully patches and updated.

1) When trying to run Windows Update i can get to the Scan Now button and then IE freezes. The Animated icon at the top right stops, IE won't respond and i have to force it to shut...

2) OE is set to download messages from my Hotmail account. Mailwasher logs in and out ok but OE6 hangs on Check for new messages on server.

Eventually it shows this error -

Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Jester2K', Server: 'click here', Protocol: HTTPMail, Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 12019, Error Number: 0x80004005


Account: Jester2K

I've switched off All other programs running in the background (Firewall, AV etc etc), checked and re-entered the account info but it makes no difference...

Any ideas?
