I first thought this was an internet explorer problem not being able to load the windows update page, but I found multiple DLL's for IE that I cannot register and the Automatic Updates service cannot start saying an internal Windows error has occured.
I'm trying to update windows 2000 server on a data storage server. This server is also running SQL 2000. Norton Antivirus has found nothing on the server, and I have not found any spyware either.
One topic recommended re-registering the following DLL's
regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll - Failed
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll - Failed
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll - Succeeded
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll - Failed
regsvr32 Msjava.dll - Succeeded
regsvr32 Browseui.dll - Failed
regsvr32 Urlmon.dll - Succeeded
regsvr32 Shell32.dll - Succeeded
I tried reinstalling IE 6.0 with no luck.
I'm out of ideas and don't really want to reload the server - as that would take a day of downtime.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for your help.
