2. Click Internet Options and then click the General tab.

3. In the Temporary Internet Files section, click Delete Files, and then click OK.

4. In the History section, click Clear History, and then click OK.

Set Security level in Internet Options to 'default'. Disable any and all ad-blocking software. Check Firewall and antivirus settings to ensure that Windows Update is not being blocked (disable these and try to see if they are the problem)

Panda Platinum, for example, by default blocks all VB and Java code from running.

Re: Blank Windows Update page in Xp

If you come across an issue where you get a blank page when accessing Windows Updates, the below fix worked for me.

Click start, click run and type the below commands and click ok after each one.

regsvr32 jscript

regsvr32 vbscript

regsvr32 /i mshtml

Hope so it may help you out.
