    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.
