I am having big problems with windows updates. I can get them to download but whenever i try to install them the installation fails. I have tried all the different updates and they all fail. This started happening about 24 hours ago, and at the same time i found i could no longer get into any web based email programmes - yahoo, lycos, aol etc - i can login and get to the welcome page but as soon as i try to check mail or go into any of my email folders it comes up page cannot be displayed. As these both started during the SOBIG panic i have run several virus scans but they all say my pc is clean. I have also run the sobig removal tool just in case but that dosent find it on my system so i assume this isnt caused by a virus.
my OS is win xp home upgraded from 98yes i am running a firewall, zone alarm pro but i was running that before with no probs with updates. I am runing norton and avg anti virus software. i did the restore back to 5 days ago, didnt make any difference :(
ok i am running just avg now, tried all the tips above and still got the same problems :( the other thing is, that when it scans for updates and i get the list on the left, i can click and go into critical updates and driver updates to see what it is recommending, but if i click on the general windows xp updates i am getting page cannot be displayed
