    Hello, I cannot do ANY windows 2000 Pro. updates on my laptop. Yes, it wants the Administrator to update it and that's me. When I log onto administrator, it STILL gives me that window, only Administrators Updates, even though I have logged in as Administrator. So, I have not been able to get them. Could there be something wrong with the Windows Certs? The laptop and it's software seem to function well.

    Have you checked the Administrators group and verified Administrator is included.

    To access it right click My Computer, select Manage, and Logon Users and Groups.

    From a DOS prompt or using Run try executing the following to re-register the following files:
    regsvr32 msscript.ocx
    regsvr32 dispex.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 scrrun.dll

    Also check the file extension assoication for .JS:

    Open the Control Panel, click "Folder Options," and then click "File Types." Next locate the .JS extension and click "Advanced." Then make sure the "Application to perform action" field contains: C:\WINNT\System32\WScript.exe "%1" %*
