Windows Update and mcrepair.exe

  Epirb406 19:21 15 Oct 2003

Hi all,

I can't download any windows updates and also can't connect to any chat rooms.

The microsoft site seems to think I need to download mcrepair.exe but that download won't start either.

Any ideas?

Let you know result!

It seems that my problem is a general downloading one.

I cannot download the attachment you sent me or various other things such as the new virus scan updates.

In fact I can't download any files at all.

I have recently installed a wireless network and a 2nd HDD. Do you think these could be related? (Though I'm sure I have downloaded files since both upgrades)

What do you think and should I start a new thread? If so what should I call it!!!

Thanks for help and time so far, Epirb.

Any early birds?

Seems thats it is executables I can't download, is it a security setting?

Cheers, Epirb
