Windows XP, IE8
Everytime I click on Windows Update using IE8 (Start, All Programs, Windows Update), I am directed to a page that says "Use your Start menu to check for updates".
Prior to attempting to update this system, I ran SuperAntiSpyware and NOD32 and found and removed 181 critical threats (Trojan.Dropper/Win-NV, Trojan.Agent/Gen-SSHNAS, Malware.Trace, Worm.Autorun[E4],Trojan.Agent/Gen, Trojan.Agent/Gen-ComBot[Autorun], Worm.Autorun/Bot, Trojan.Agent/Gen-WormBot). Unfortunately, the owner of the system never received an XP recovery disk when he purchased the PC.
Here is the URL that Windows Update directs to:
and here is the URL that I am supposed to be directed to:
One thing I noticed about the url is that it points to "...vistadefault.aspx" instead of "...default.aspx". When I changed it to "...default.aspx" it keeps directing me to "...vistadefault.aspx"
When I run wupdmgr.exe (Start, Run), I get the same page.
How can I get to Microsoft Update page? (I am currently running mrt.exe Aug2011 from the run command)
