How to update windows manually RRS feed

  • Question

  • My IE7 is not allowing me to go to the Windows Update site and I'm not so sure that automatic updates is able to connect to the windows server either. Is there any other way to update Windows XP manually without using Internet Explorer ? Are there any tools that can do the same thing that what manual update of windows does ? A utility that checks Windows OS with the what the server has to ensure the system is up to date ?

    Thanks in advance

    You've got malware.


    Would it help if I posted a log file tracked by Wireshark ? The packets are going out and coming back but I am new to wireshark and have a difficult time processing the records.


    Let me know

  • +1 on Pavels suggestion. I would recommend Microsoft Security Essentials and Malware Bytes. They should cover you for most eventualities.
