Why can't I install the "microsoft update" activex?
Posted on 2012-09-14
I have been using "Windows Update" for a long time to update OS files. Now I want to use "Microsoft Update" which updates OS files and MS Office files.
When I click "Go" to install "Microsoft Update", here is what happens:
The information bar displays "This website wants to install the following add-on: 'Microsfot Update' from 'Microsoft Corporation'. . . . If you trust the website and the add-on and want to install it, click here . . .
When I click on "click here", nothing happens. I wait, and wait, and wait. Then End Task on iexplorer.exe.
Note: Nor am I able to install the Adobe Flash Player.
I have gone to:
Internet Options \ Security \ Custom \ "Enabled" Run Active X Controls and Plug-ins,
but the activex still does not install.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
