Hi, anyone else have an issue with Windows Update page not displaying anything ?
URL windowsupdate.microsoft.com

When selecting Win update from within Control panel ( in XP ) site opens with "Done" but no items displayed ( either text or graphics ).

I am XP Home SP3 using IE6

Ta for any relevant response / help.

Try Microsoft Update page instead.

Ta buteman. That page opens with message "Files required to use updater are no longer registered on your computer"

There is then ( a ticked ) option to register.
Then a continue option.
It goes through some process ( registering ? ) that does not produce any error messages but if I reload update page process atarts over again.
Any ideas ? Have only experienced ( I think ) this since upgrading to SP3 ( a process which validated my XP OS ).

Have you tried rebooting after registering.Looks like the genuine advantage tool may not have registered.[I hope that it what you call it.] Or maybe try with your Automatic updates switched off.
