Hi,

I've just reinstalled windows 98.

When I go to windows update the scanning just goes quickly to 100% and freezes!

Does anybody know whats wrong?

Thanks

Thanks but these don't seem to have worked.

I'am sure last time this happened I had to change something in the registry!

Anybody got any other suggestions?!

Have you changed you firewall rules to block any ports recently? After visiting Symantec's security site it returned a bunch of open ports. I blocked these on a "suck it and see" basis and found that one of them prevented MS updates when blocked with the same symptoms you have. If it rings a bell, I'll check what port number it was.

I havent got a firewall!

I read through the solution and it didn't work! The spool files are there!
