    I have a legit edition of XP po and since installing IE7 I keep getting the message "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem Error number: 0x80004005"

    I have searched evrywhere for a solution and am stumped.

    Can anyone give me some clues.

    Tried that as well and still the same message. I can connect to the site with the custom or express choice, it commences a scan and then I get the error message.

    Any more ideas?

    Thanks

    Its only the microsoft update page. After I select custom or express I get this:

    Tried the patch and lowered the security settings but still getting the error.

    Also tried a clean boot just in case any other programs were interfering. No luck.

    Any ideas guys?
