Do you remember if you installed any software just prior to your problem?

If you can, then go to Start > Run and type in:
Make sure there is a space between sfc and /
Just let it do what it does and let me know if you receive any kind of error message.

Maybe we're many steps away from this, but since my computer seems to be free of malware critters (right?),would you recommend installing SP2 now or waiting until my other issues are resolved?
I really appreciate all the time you've put in for me over the last couple of days!

Be sure you're able to VIEW HIDDEN FILES
Browse to C:\Windows\inf (hidden folder)
Locate ie.inf, right click on it and go to "install".

Under "Product Resources" click on Windows Update - then it will scan your computer for the updates it needs, choose IE Service Pack 2 under critical updates.

Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page. You may find the following resources helpful in resolving the problem:
For self-help options:
Windows Update Response Center
Windows Update Troubleshooter
Windows Update Newsgroups
For assisted support options:
Microsoft Online Assisted Support (no-cost for Windows Update issues)
Does the update feature not run in Safe Mode? Do you know a way I can manually find the IE 6 Service Pack 2? It doesn't turn up in a recognizable form (to me, at least) when I do a search.

I think you may have something in XP that is corrupted.

If you find it, then delete it. If it won't let you delete it, rename it then delete it.
