View Full Version : Windows Update Site - XP

19-11-2002, 11:05 AM
I'm running XP Pro, and recently installed the Service Pack. Problem is now when I go to the Windows Update Site it tells me I have to upgrade the update software. Ok no problem so I do this, but as soon as it's done I get the same message over and over again....

"The Windows Update site has been updated. To update your version of the software and begin using Windows Update, click Update Now"

But I've just done that a zillion times over and still it won't let me in.

Any ideas on what the problem could be.


CPU: 1Ghz Celeron
OS: Windows XP Version 2002 Service Pack 1)

Scroll back to Nov 16 as Big John posted several pages of info on this for those having problems.

I changed the prefix of the URL of the windows update site from a http:// to https://

i.e. use secure http

That eventually seemed to work for me.
