    Here's the story..
    1. I was configuring Outlook 2003 to receive/send my gmail.
    2. I was having problems so I was recommened to visit the Windows Update site to check updates that I may be missing.
    3. In the middle of windows checking for updates I was told that it had an error completing the scan.
    4. Since then, my computer is EXTREMLY slow to start.
    5. When I go to Microsoft to check for updates it tells me:
    [​IMG] Files required to use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer. To continue:

    Register or reinstall the files for me now (Recommended)
    Let me read about more steps that might be required to solve the problem
    6. Other problems that I am having:
    • when I move my mouse to the taskbar it turns into a double arrow and I can't click anything.
    • sometimes the taskbar just disappears.
    • often my mute button on my keyboard won't work.
    • I cannot access a number of sites via IE that require login - gmail,, igoogle, blogger, facebook and ebay. The moment I click to login I get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."
    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
