My friend and I have just obtained an older HP Pavillion running XP Pro Service Pack 1 and I am trying to upgrade to SP2. Whenever I go to MS Update or Windows Update I get a message stating: 'Your current security settings prohibit Active X controls. As a result this page may not displayed properly.' This means that I cannot get into MS Update and that means that I cannot update. I would like to fix this problem instead of buying the SP2 CD from Microsoft.
