    Have you tried opening your browser and manually going to the microsoft update site? Does it work?

    Just tried the manual update and it worked. I would really like a solution to the IE7 closing when I try clicking windows updates.

    can you go to start,control panel,administive tools,event viewer.
    in the programs tab on the left should have a application crash.
    right click on it and click on properties.
    it should tell you the faulting file.
    example opera kept crashing the other day and i wondered why.
    it turned out it was quicktime crashing opera when trying to load a quicktime video.

    "Yes I do use ccleaner ...." ---- "My IE6 got corrupted ...." ---- "I don't know what I could have deleted ...."

    Maybe you should start taking a closer look before removing *auto-suggested* entries. ;)

    There can be a few reasons and an exact error received/error report would really help.
