Windows Update - is it me?

  Mike D 07:54 05 Sep 03

I have been trying to launch Windows update (as I have on countless other occasions) and I get the following message:

Thank you for your interest in Windows Update
Windows Update is the online extension of Windows that helps you get the most out of your computer.
You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use Windows Update.

I run XP Home and have not had this problem before.

Is it me, or have things changed?

Are you behind a firewall by any chance

I am, but then again, I always have been. Still it's worth a look. I'm at work at moment, so it may be tomorrow before I can let you know.

Checked Firewall, no changes since initial configuration for Windows Update, so I'm still stuck.


None of the problems aeem to be the same as mine.

I will keep trying, thanks for your help.
