I am running Windows XP SP3 Home Edition on 1 of 4 PC's and it's been
updated through early April 2011. Prior to this, accessing Windows
Updates (via http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us)
worked fine, near perfect, for over a year - using Internet Explorer
6. Note, I prefer not upgrading to Internet Explorer 8 - so please
avoid suggesting same - read below to understand why.
Recently, around the middle of April 2011, each time I went to Windows
Update, the page initially appears and I can briefly see the 2 buttons
(of which I always chose the CUSTOM button), but within 1/2 second,
the screen blinks and resolves to state "New! Get Microsoft Update
I have no interest in Microsoft Update for my PC running XP SP3 Home
Edition because my other 3 PC's, all running Windows XP SP3
Professional with Internet Explorer 6 are having no problems with
Windows Update. This is also why I prefer not upgrading to Internet
Explorer 8 on my PC running XP XP3 Home Edition.
Because my 3 PC's running XP Professional XP3 are not having problems
accessing Windows Update with Internet Explorer 6, it seem reasonable
to conclude that this is an XP SP3 Home Edition problem. Or, perhaps
its an Internet Explorer 6 where some setting has changed.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Internet Explorer 6, but the
problem remains. I tried all DEFAULT settings, and the problem
I cannot successfully access Windows Update to update my PC running
Windows XP SP3 Home Edition and I want to fix this problem.
Any help or suggestions are sincerely appreciated.
