Can't use Windows Update! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't use Windows update, I don't get a specific error, but the page says, "The page cannot be displayed."

    On the bottom of the page it shows:

    Cannot find server or DNS Error
    Internet Explorer

     

    I can use any site other than Microsoft update.


    I have reformatted my computer numerous times and nothing, I have tried many of the "solutions" from microsoft and other sites and nothing.

    I do not know what to do now.

     

    I am running Windows XP.

    I have Service Pack 2.

    Please if anyone could help me ,I would appreciate it very much!

    I don't know if you are able to move this thread to the correct place, but I have tried to make a new thread in that area but I am unable to. so if someone could please move it there I would be a happy trooper.
