I've installed a fresh copy of Windows XP over a brand new hard drive, installed Servce Pack 1, Service Pack 2 & Service Pack 3, installed Internet Explorer 8 installed .NET Framework 2.0 as Microsoft requested, altered popup settings to allow Windows Update page to be free to scan my system for updates needed, etc... and I've even Enabled all Active X permission YET I still can't get Windows Update to allow me to download all the updates, patches, etc... Windows Update usually does
I've also turned on Automatic Updates requirement also BUT no dice - I simply can't get Windows Update To activate and start like normal no matter how many times I format the drive and do a fresh install.
I had to get a new hard drive as my old one crashed.
Now I have to install Windows XP over again but I've noticed the old, easy way to update somehow has been crippled.
It is as IF Microsoft Is crippling Windows Update to start up easy as pie, so now we users HAVE To jump through hoops to get our Windows XP OS updated and many times the requests Microsoft asks for us for, or install 'FIX IT' service doesn't work and it's impossible to reach Microsoft by telephone about this, and the live online help runs into errors when that is installed so I'm forced to hit the Internet Forum here for advice.
How, in simple terms can Windows XP allow Windows Update to begin the scan, download and install process that it is supposed to do?
What exactly is missing to allow the screen to show the green scanning bar and the notificiation that there are updates available?
What am I doing wrong?
I really hate to say this BUT I'm literally on the verge of tears.
Is there a master maintenance program like a 'rollup All-In-One patch' that scans Windows XP for missing programs, apps and settings and does a go over to set everything right and make sure the needed programs to make Windows Update work are knitted into Windows XP including all missing sub-routines to programs and settings then verifies them without saying errors or wrong version but assures it goes out to FIND The RIGHT version of what is needed?
Or better still a Master Compilation Disc i.e. Final Service Pack 4.0 that contains ALL known patches on DVD that would have be found in the downloaded Windows Update but instead is purchased for $10.00 that contains every single patch and update known for Windows XP so that we manually can update Windows XP from the user's side of the Internet without having to go onto to the internet?
