Start/Windows update not working

  gudda96 09:28 13 May 2006

if I c/o start/windows update, nothing happens.
but if I open OE/windows update it does, any reason?

Also, when checking for updates (although I am set up for auto updates) it says its checking and the green line continually moves, but no updates.

Try this: Start, Run, type in the following commands one at a time Pressing Enter after each one:

regsvr32 wshom.ocx

regsvr32 jscript

regsvr32 /i mshtml

Right click the Windows Update icon on the Start menu, choose Properties.

What does it say in the Target box?

It should be %SystemRoot%\system32\wupdmgr.exe
