So...when I got online, the first thing I saw was the Windows Update page. I was asked if I wanted to install and run http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/CAB/x86/ansi/iuctl.CAB?37950.1793981481
. The publisher could not be determined because the authenticode signature couldn't be found. I clicked Yes and saw "Windows update site has been updated. To update your version of the software and begin using Windows Update, click Update now". I clcicked Yes and returned to "Do you want to install and run http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/etc.?
When I look in Help - About IE, I see I have IE 6, SP 1 (cipher strength 128-bit), but there is no section noting patches that have been installed! Given my recent experience with installing a Cumulative Patch for IE that started this whole thread, I'm reluctant to do this again! On the other hand, I realize there are patches which need to be installed - and, as I've mentioned, Windows Update isn't working.
How do I make Windows Update work and/or what patches should I install (and from where)?
