    Hello,

    Can anyone please help. I am trying to run a windows update and using Windows 98se OS & IE v5.0. I keep getting the following error message:

    Network policy settings prevent you from using Windows Update to download and install updates on your computer. If you believe you have received this message in error, please check with your system administrator.

    Can anyone please advise how I can change the network policy settings?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Andrea.

    Are you using a company computer or on another type of restricted Network? If you are you'll have to contact the System Administrator. If you're using WinXP you'll have to contact the user with Administrator privileges.
