    When clicking a link on the web page, Internet Explorer pop up window opens but it freezes, it resumes to the directed page when the internet explorer is stopped and refreshed. Also, on the windows update, the Web Dialog freezes and does not continue anymore. I've tried to follow the instruction at


    Problem Description:
    After accepting the EULA, the Windows Update - Web Page Dialog window appears but the download never starts. Nothing "moves" on the download progress bar, no matter how long you leave the connection open.

    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.

    But this did not work.

    I am using a proxy server connection without firewall.
