    I really don't know when all of them started, I just happen to be kind of messing around looking at things and I noticed all those, I have had problems with the cd writer not wanting to write sometimes or acting funny like not wanting to show everything that I know is on the cd but the other ones I don't even know what they are let alone when they started happening, would they have anything to do with, well the computer I am on is on my home network ( just 2 computers) and I am on the client, I have tried and tried and I cannot get to the windows update page to check for updates or windows support to download any patches, I can get just about every place else but it will not take me to that page, any idea's on that or the other?

    I won't even be able to get to the urls you suggest cause those are microsoft support and for some reason I just cannot get to that.

    It is possible that the CD ROM drive is simply going bad. Especially if you are getting these errors from multiple CD's.

    If you can't get to the Windows Update page or their Support pages, what MS pages can you get to?

    I don't know any besides the support, the troubleshooting, any suggestions for one to try?

    If it is just microsoft's sites you can't get to, might check your IE settings to see if they are on any of the restricted sites. You also might check your hosts files to make sure they aren't incorrectly listed there (or listed at all).

    Basically the majority of the information regarding both those errors seemed to indicate a faulty CD ROM drive. Is there another one you can temporarily use.

    Yes, thats no problem, the part about not being able to get to the updates and patches or any micosoft is what is really bothering me.
