Have you tried resetting your security settings under INTERNET OPTIONS. Maybe they are on too high.

Try restoring the defaults.

Do you have any suggestions?

As far as the problem with downloading, you haven't told us anything about what happened when you tried the suggestions we gave you links to, or even if you have tried them. Please give us specific details about what you've tried and what the exact results were.

I'm thinking he means the error you get when you try installing drivers that aren't tested by WHQL yet with that 'not logo tested' message.

DMR's giving good advice here, you should be sure to follow it to the letter!

found out win update installed the v5 version I still have v4 in my pc so there conflicting if I try to use the v5 version I have these problems if I go through a back approach to use the v4 version I got all of the critical updates but I can't figure out to get the v5 version out.

I see what you mean, you mean the V5 version of the Windows Update software that the web site downloads to your machine so it can scan your machine to figure out what updates you have.

That's a pretty strange problem you have there. I've never heard or seen this one before. Short of reverting to a system restore point from a time prior to this problem, I can't think of a way to fix it.

You could, but I don't think that would remove V5, though.

Do you have Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed? V5 should install on your first visit to Windows Update after SP2 gets installed. V5 shouldn't be on the system elsewise, (at least to my knowledge). If you installed SP2, I'd recommend trying to remove that first. (Again, system restore is your friend, rolling back to prior to this problem SHOULD solve this).

WSEM Update is 'Internet Optimizer' (some call it Windows Optimizer), and is spyware or malware. You need to ask in the Security forum for help removing it. I'd recommend starting at the following post, where you can learn how to avoid and repair many spyware/malware/adware infections.

I'd recommend downloading Spybot Search and Destroy from that list, I've seen some posts indicating it might be able to get rid of that for you.

I have spybot but I also took the update out in add and remove programs
Thanks.

Not sure about the latter, but 180 Search Assistant is spyware/adware.

Again, you'd be better off posting for this stuff in the Security forum, I am not an expert on this spyware stuff (yet).

Fair warning, the 'Add/Remove Programs' app will not work for 180 Search Assistant, that much I know. Read this page for more info, including an uninstall method that won't help much, since they keep changing the names of files in each version of the bugger.

I got 180 solutions out it tries to come back in at times but my sygate firewall block it .
My next big problem is win update. Win update dowloaded the new beta version V5 and sp2 I am not a tester so I cannot get onto the troubleshooting site.
It did give me an error message once 0x8DDD0004 I can't even find out what that means.
