You do not have permission to do this action. If you think you should do, please contact the webmaster.
And I am down loading updates, 4 at a time, connected at 44.00 Kbps, downloading at 634 bytes/sec. Max, These are the first 4 I have tried to download. Estimated download time 4-hours and 27 Minutes it says. 2.60 MB
Is it possible to download the update files on another computer, then burn them to disk, and take them to this other PC and install them?

Try running winsockfix
Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.
Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run Tune Up disc clean up
Run Tune Up registry clean up
Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot
Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors
These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

The winstock thingy is downloading on the messed up computer, I can posting here from my notebook......so should I run this winstock thingy, after it downloads? Its going to take a while to download of it downloads. The updates I was downloading timed out......dialup connection was not responding, then computer froze up, had to reboot, now downloading the winstock thingy.

I have a firewall but can't ceck any box, to turn on or off, and I get this message everytime I try to go to firewall setting.
Firewall setting cannot be displayed, associated service not running, Do you want to start (ICS) services?
After clicking yes, I get into the firewall settings, but I can not check the box's, they are both grayed out. I can't turn it on the turned off box is checked but it is grayed out as well.
Next proplem.....this is the bad one.
after I connect to the internet, at 44.00 kbps, I go to load IE, nothing in screen.......no 404 file not found nothing....just says page cannot be displayed. I tried serveral web sites all the same. I pinged sever of these web site.....threw command prompt....4 packets sent 4 recived....none lost. So this shows I an connected right? why does IE not work?........also I tried to go back to windows update, it won't load, after about 10 minutes it times out.......not responding. So I now have SP2 .and connect to the internet.......but can't use it......
I also got this error.......after the IE closed when it was not responding........
nwiz.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up to look for nwiz, remove any ticks, click apply and reboot
Run winsockfix again
Is a third party firewall disabled, or the SP2 one

I dont't have a 3rd party one....(its SP2 Firewall)...I do have a router though..but I am using dialup on this computer.and the router dose not have internet........I unplugged the Cat5 from the computer stil the same probs.......
The winsockfix did not fix the problem this time..........can connect but no internet! nothing in IE..no updates.....no e-mail.....nothing, but I can ping any server and get a responce.
I don't know what to do?........why did format and reinstall cause so many problems for me.......I have done it dozens of time on other computers and never had a problem........this all happened after I reintalled windows after a format......this computer did not come with a restore or XP disk.......its all in All program/Hewlett-Packard/hp pavion pc tools/hp pc system recovery.
This is the first time I have had to restore using this configuration........is it something I did?.......did SP2 make it worse.......am I missing something.......
Sorry...I am venting.........How do I fix this computer
