    For some reason I am not getting notification of Windows updates, and when I try to access them directly I get this message:
    "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view."
    My networked laptop receives notification and downloads so theres some problem with the setup on my desktop. Auto-update on the desktop is on, sp maybe its being blocked somewhere else.
    How can I fix this?

    2. How to remove a corrupted Active X control
    Start IE and then click Tools/Internet Options
    On the General Tab choose Settings under Temporary Internet Files
    Then click on View Objects.
    Right Click WuWebControl Class and choose remove
    Right Click MuWebControl Class and choose remove

    Under the Browsing History tab I find TempIntFiles and History: View Objects takes me to C/Windows/Downloaded Program Files. There are no WU or MU Web Control entries - just three identical Java Runtime entries.

    I have also tried the MS knowlegebase page and do not get the same results as shown in the Cmd box.

    I am still unable to download updates. I have tried what you suggested and I am not getting the results you say.
