I just recently reformatted my friends HD in her Compaq Presario C300 laptop and re-installed Windows XP Pro. So far so good, but when I try to update windows through the 'Windows Update' link, I'm having a problem. The windows update page opens fine, and I click the 'express' option and it starts checking my version, etc. Then the following error message pops up: ""The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view." (Error number: 0x8024400A).
This happens whether I select express or custom, and from what I've found, it may have something to do with ActiveX(?) but I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Any suggestions?
