Windows Update re-install

Ive got the same problem as Ron Carruthers
when i try and windows update it takes my to a google home page but with the
update url in the url .

And when i go
Start>All Programs>Microsoft Update

It brings up a webpage:

Google Error
Not Found
The requested URL /microsoftupdate was not found on this server

this is my Pc

Microsoft Windows Xp
Version 5.1 ( Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236 : Service Pack 3)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Check the headers. No References: header. Ergo: new thread.
Albeit with references from a thread with the same name and hence
grouped under it by your newsreader. ; )

So, he answered the same question you asked the original OP.
FWIW the additional symptom description looks like either a DNS
or browser problem.

I've had a similar problem, it's caused by a so called "dnssd.dll" - made by an apple lover :)). Look for it in your system32 folder and delete it.

Look for the file named as hosts in %windows\system32\drivers\etc for more
than 4 Mb and deletee the files

It will work.
