    Hi folks.

    I have XP and all of a sudden, I am not able to download any Windows
    updates. Also one of my usual e-tailers I purchase off, will not allow me to
    enter anything into the shopping basket.

    Happened overnight. Have run Adaware, Spybot etc, virus scanned, checked
    Java for errors, downloaded half a dozen 'fix it' programs, but still cannot
    do these things. Have also tried with ZoneAlarm on and off, Anti-virus on
    and off, XP firewall on and off. Nothing makes a difference.

    Everything else is still working fine. I can download anything except
    Windows updates and cannot add to the shopping basket of this 1 store.

    Hope someone can help. I'm outta ideas.

    It might be the "file (open) type .JS is properly associated problem". Might
    be associated with Notepad accidentally.

    Try this from http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/troubleshoot/
    Please re-register the following files:
    regsvr32 msscript.ocx
    regsvr32 dispex.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 scrrun.dll

    1. Click "Start," and then click "Run."
    2. Type regsvr32 msscript.ocx in the "Open" box and click "OK."
    3. Repeat for dispex.dll,vbscript.dll, and scrrun.dll.

    Next, make sure file (open) type .JS is properly associated:
    1. In Control Panel, click "Folder Options," and then click "File Types."
    2. Locate the .JS extension and click "Advanced."
    3. Make sure the "Application to perform action" field contains:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\WScript.exe "%1" %* This is for a Windows XP computer.
    For Windows 2000 substitute the C:\WINDOWS\ with C:\Winnt\. For Windows 98
    and Windows Millenium Edition substitute this: C:\WINDOWS\System\ for
    C:\Windows\system32
