where has windows update gone?

I've been trying to reach Windows update for the past few weeks,and cannot reach it.Everytime it scans for updates,i receive the following message.Windows has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page.It goes on to explain that this problem could be due to the removal of service pack 1 having been removed during a system restore,or reinstalling Windows into the same directory.It then tells you how to resolve the proplem by making a small registry edit in HK local machine/windows and and changing the value in CSD version to zero.None of this makes any difference,any ideas?

What updates are listed in add/remove?

Have you removed SP 1. If so reinstall it, if not try sfc/scannow. Put the XP CD rom in the drive & let it auto run then exit, Go to start/run and type cmd, now type sfc /scannow this will scan for missing or corrupt files & hopefully will fix the problem.
