When I try to uplad the upgrades through the auto upgrade program, I run into a problem with ActiveX Controls and I am told to click on a bar that I do not see.

When I try to download from Microsoft itself, I am told that I already have a later version of IE, but I have deleted all Internet explorer to stop popups etc. Can you help?

:tazz: What do you mean you "deleted all Internet explorer" ?
Do you mean you have "uninstalled" Internet Explorer
so that it no longer exists in your computer ?
The simpler way to stop popups is to "turn off" Windows
Messenger Service and/or use a Pop Up blocker .

I uninstalled but found that I still could not download the files from Microsoft. I then deleted all remaining IE files, but stillhave the problem.

I do not have a problem with popups, I solved that. I cannot download the XP updates.

You need IE to use Windows Update. You need to re-install it. Here is a document from M$ that may help
