I have a laptop that has XP service Pack 1 and when i go to microsoft automatic updates it says that "Your Internet settings may be preventing ActiveX controls from running, therefore this page cannot be displayed".
I have reset all ActiveX controls to default and made sure ActiveX controls are enabled and even set security to low but still get this error.
I tried to download security updates manually but they fail and give an error about the "cryptography" service not started - but it is running in services, i checked!
I tried installing SP2 from CD but this also fails:sad:
When i try to perform a scan with MSBSA 2.0 (Microsoft Baseline security Analyzer) I get the following:
Downloading security update information from Microsoft
then after a while the following message appears briefly
Failed to download security update databases.
Unable to scan all computers
The catalog file is damaged or an invalid catalog.:?:
Please help i only want to update before SP1 stops being supported in September:sad:
I am using IE version 6
