    update.microsoft.com
    windowsupdate.microsoft.com
    update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx

    All of these redirect me to the old Windows Update site (http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp)

    Unsurprisingly, the old site doesn't work for updating. I am using Windows XP x64 edition, and I used to be able to load the original v6 site. I've tried running every malware and virus scan I can think of, but nothing seems out of the ordinary. I am truly baffled, HijackThis log follows. I should also note that HijackThis is incorrectly listing my OS :/

    I found a solution to this.

    -Goto control panel, then users. Create a new administrator account. It must have a password for this to work, for some reason known only to Microsoft.
    -Switch your start menu to the classic view, then right click 'Windows Update'
    -Select "Run as...". Select the second radio box option, and enter the information for the account you just created

    It should load Windows Update with the correct site
