Can't download any updates

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?TiBIYW5zZW4=?=, Nov 25, 2005.

  1. I have been playing around with windows xp and 64 and can't get either to
    work. I am using a Asus A8N-E with Athlon XP 64. With Win XP had rundll
    errors all the time, with win 64, after initial updates and latest mobo/bios
    updates from Asus, I can't get updates from windows updates, virus software
    won't install and update, downloads fail from various sites. Is win xp 64
    just a pile of excrement, or should I scrap my 64 bit processor and go back
    to win xp (win 2000 has been the only 'trouble free' OS I have had from
    windows)

  2. Sounds like the good old nVidia Firewall. Please reinstall then uninstall
    the nVidia Firewall to remove it completely from your system.

    I remember Win2000, it took 3 service pack updates to stabilize it. XP x64
    has been stable since the beta versions.

  4. I should also ask, if you are using the RTM version of XP Professional x64
    as some users are still running the RC1 releases which are not supported. N,
    click Start > Run > type in "winver" without quotes click ok, and tell me
    what does it say beside the Version information?
