Windows XP Update page will not load


  • Have tried to go to Windows update page but site will not load. It loads on other computers here at home. Have even typed page in as listed on other machines and/or from web sites directing me to the proper site location. Only thing that is displayed is

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

    And the radio button for Diagnose Connection Problem. Have loaded IE 8  again fresh from Microsoft but problem still is there. Have done a complete virus scan (Norton) and no problems showing there. There was a intrusion alert when I selected a couple of pages to try to get to update page but got a redirect instead. Have also checked add ons, reset internet options and cleared history. What can I look at next?

  • Try creating a new user account on that computer and try to see if you can load the windows update page from the new user account. Good luck.
