Can you navigate to This Site? If so, download it, install it, and try surfing to a few sites...won't work for the updates, though. Just trying something...

Go HERE using the Firefox browser and download the IE6 SP1...save it to disk. Close all open applications and double click on the downloaded file to install it. Restart your computer when prompted and then try the Windows Update site again... ...using IE6.

Ok, i did that, restarted comp, but the windows page is still not coming up on IE6.
I tried it on firefox and got this:

Lets try clearing the cookies...
In Internet Explorer, Click "Tools" on the toolbar then "Internet Options"...Under the "General" tab, click the "Delete Cookies" button and then the "Delete Files..." button. Under the "Privacy" tab clear the "Block Pop Ups" check box and/or click the "Settings" button and in the "Filter Level" drop down menu, choose the "Low" setting. Click "Close" to exit the Settings window...Apply the changes and click "Ok".
Try the update again...

You know the drill, timlovesfaith...give it a try.

After it started repairing the files, it says "Internet Explorer could not be repaired. Please run Setup again to re-install components."

A corrupt IE6 install!
Go back to the repair feature and choose the "Restore the Previous Windows Configurations" option. This will roll it back to the old version of IE. Then try going to the Microsoft site and download IE6 again. Fingers are crossed....

After I clicked add/remove programs, hit to restore, then went through that process, it restarted. Then, when it was doing the updates, it said "Advanced INF Installer: Error Creating ,C:\WINDOWS/SYSTEM/IE4UINIT.EXE/U.. The system cannot be found. Click Ok." So, I clicked ok, then my computer screen switched to the previous problem I had before. It switched my screen to 16 color 640 x 480. When I right click on desktop, properties, then go to the Settings tab and try to change it, I will change it, restart my computer, and it will still be the 16 color 640 x 480
Anyways, So I went to The Microsoft page, installed the IE 6 and went through everything, restarted my computer, updated the microsoft registry. The only problem is my computer is in 16 color 640 x 480, so I cannot see if there is any change on my IE.

I was going to edit my previous post, but the board was down for a little while.
I restarted my computer and the settings went back to normal. I went into IE and everything is FIXED!!! FINALLY!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
The only problem I have now is, everytime I boot my computer there is a box that comes up that says, "Setup needs to reboot your machine. Do you want to reboot now Yes No" It has been doing that for a few months now. I will click yes and it will reboot and come up again. It is so strange.
