Running Xp pro. Have spybot, ad aware and windows spyware. I cannot get into windows update page. I can get to other ms windows pages. When I go to update, I get a blank screen and done at the bottom of the browser. Have posted HJT on the nasties page, nothing is showing as the problem. Any ideas??

Are you allowing active x install. The top of your browser you may see a message windows has blocked this download for your security?? Check your security settings for ie6 make sure they are set to default. Options,internet options security. Just a few ideas. No luck with that let me know....

I have security set to default levels. I do not see anything at the top showing blocked. I do not know if I have active x blocked. How do I check that?? By the way, thank you...

to check activex go to ,IE tools/internet options /security /custom level ,.
Also have tried another windows update these .

windows corporate

Checked the active x and changed them to allow. I went to the first 2 sites listed and got a blank page again. The next three went to windows update with the screen checking for latest updates, an error message from IE Security popped up with IE has found a problem, "" I clicked OK and sat waiting for the updates that never arrived... Any thoughts?

This problem could occur because of Spyware , go on over to the Security section of this fourm and post you problem along with a hijackthis log .
Spyware & Trojans and Other Nasties
Please Don't post the hijackthis log in this section Thanks .

Please do this.
Download 'Hijack This!'. HijackThis
Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

Your copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. When HJT fixes anything, it makes backups of the original files in the folder it is in. Since Temporary folders are emptied now and then (the files are DELETED), it would not be a good idea to have your backups there. Those backups would be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!

1. Please go to you're 'My Documents' folder, right-click and select 'New > Folder' then name the folder 'HJT'.

2. Copy and paste HijackThis.exe to the new folder.

3. Close ALL windows except HJT

4. SCAN with HJT

5. POST the new log in this thread using 'Add Reply'


I am having the EXACT same problem as bass1056. I got the same error, same number of 3 out of 5 sites came up. I too have been having a lot of problems with Active X. I have ran the HijackThis.exe and below is the log.

As well I am having problems with my java script. Things like 'Compose' in yahoo mail does not bring up the compose page or the check box in yahoo mail that is supposed to check all doesn't work.

Any thoughts?
