    Windows 98SE Recommended updates

    I just rebuilt a system with the HP restore CD, Installed and updated Office XP, and updates the Critical Updates to Windows. However, when I try to get the recommended updates I get stuck - after about 5 mins I get "Action Cancelled".

    I checked some of the other messages and tried many things. I get an error when trying to re-register msscript.ocx. Is that my problem?

    Updates are older than IE6.

    Can you install them manually? let me know if it works. If so then you most likely have an issue with msscript.ocx.

    Thanks, I would have tried it, but I blew the system away and rebuilt it so I could get it back to the client. I did all of the Windows updates first, then started adding Office and other things.

    Funny thing is that I have checked this sytem, and another 98SE system and neither have msscript.ocx!

    Also, I tried Microsoft's premium PAID support and got this far: My name is Gaurav, I am a Support Professional here at Microsoft; and we spoke earlier today. Since we were not able to fix your issue, I will be closing this case as "not resolved" as I have already confirmed with you.

    Thanks for the help - good to have for future reference!
