Hi. We'll need a bit more information to be able to figure out a solution for you.

Please give us some background on this problem.

1. What is the computer doing when you receive this error?

2. How long has it been happening?

3. If you can determine a date that the error started, can you determine anything at all that happened on your system just prior?

4. Is your Operating System XP Home or Professional? Is it totally up-to-date with service packs and critical updates?

it happens every time I try to use windows update , I cant update at all, the last time anything was updated successfully was around Jan 6th and it was around a couple of weeks later that I started getting the message. I think maybe a Norton anti virus programme was downloaded around that time. Ive tried using the restore option but I cant get the computer to go back further than 3 weeks ago!

You said you don't have a proxy server. Is this a home PC or work PC?
