I went to check to see if I had all the latest windows updates. I went to Start> All Programs> Windows Update and clicked on it but nothing happened. Not even a popup or anything. I'm using Windows xp and Firefox. I even opened IE and I couldn't get in to the Windows Update page.

Any idea's?

BTW..... For those that knew of my previous virus problems, it's now fixed and Thanks to all that helped. Very much appreciated! ;)

First run Adaware and spybot, and see if a virus not preventing update from working...
Also check here for possible fixes- under 'U' section// Updates;

Hi, Physician, more an indirect preliminary first shot in my routine- deductive process... not a direct fix, but just to check if somethings mucking things up. I remember when my update didn't work, I browsed curiously into by blocked sites list in IE, and found update site was there! I got things all back to normal after removing it from there.... might have been me that did it accidentally, but maybe not, I didn't pursue it further....
