Update Windows XP - Crashes

Microsoft Windows XP

When going to do a routine update, the scan completes and displays a list of updates that are available. All good except, when I start to scroll down the list and read specifics about the updates listed, I get massive crashes, and, consistently at that point

Reference urls
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.as

Had the same issue with windows98 second edition, although now it is XP

Ok a good point to the site above. Clicked "U," about a third of the way down the page found:

"Problems When Viewing or Downloading From Windows Update

Click and it points to Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 193385 - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/q193/3/85.asp&NoWebContent=

On first skim of this page, looks like I did a lot of what it says. Will have to study this article in depth and see if it helps. Will get back with more information when I have more time. Need to set aside a chunk of time and start fresh tommorrow.

Good lead so far. Thanks R. Barr
