I'm aware of this, but I'm always glad to compliment anyone, who acquired own Windows CD :)
Don't you?

    yes i did all of those. Still no luck.

    So, Java Console was enabled in IE7?

    If so, and you've done everything else...

    You originally posted about having problems with Windows updates.
    Maybe, we should start with this problem, first.
    What are those problems?

    We know that you said that you fixed the original Windows update problem but an explanation of that problem may shed some light on the current problem.

    What was wrong, any error messages? How did you fix it?
    If you don't have time to do it right
                    ...when will you have time to do it over?

      I didn't really fix windows update.  What I did was install each update one by one.  That is how I got to install all of them. I didn't get any error messages that I recall. yes java is turned on in IE7 (as far as I know).

          When i try to go to windows update through internet explorer, the page won't load.  I have to go through the microsoft website and then try to download them.  When I downloaded them all together there were about 50 that could not be downloaded.  There was no error message that I saw.

            You might try this. It worked for me and many  others.
            Re-register the Windows Update DLL with the commands below

            Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

            Type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command. Wait for succeeded after each entry before proceding to the next entry.

            regsvr32 wuapi.dll
            regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
            regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
            regsvr32 wucltui.dll
            regsvr32 wups.dll
            regsvr32 wups2.dll
            regsvr32 wuweb.dll

            Attempt to run Windows Update

            Also try the Windows Installer link for Non-Vista machines from Microsoft.

              I tried to register the components by following the last post on how to do this.  That still didn't change anything.  I also tried to download and run that program about windows update that still didn't help.  I have a question about the program to fix windows update, should I reinstall internet explorer?  All I have for a cd for my computer is my recovery cd.  I a at a loss once again.  Please help.  Thank you in advance.

                Just my opinion - at this time I think that I would re-install from the recovery disk, again.

                Best of luck.

                  The updates could not be installed.  They could be downloaded but not installed.  Also I tried to reinstall everything from the recovery disk and nothing changed.

                  How are you connected to the interent?
                  What type of connection? Any router involved? Wired, or wireless?

                    How did you re-install - step by step?

                    Did you receive any error messages during the recovery (re-install of the operating system)?

                    Is this the correct recovery disk for your computer?

                    What is the make and model of your computer?
