Windows Update window (explorer.exe) does not respond

Posted: 01-18-2009, 09:41 PM
In my Windows Vista Business Edition SP1 installation, when I try to open
the
Windows Update window, the window freezes and does not respond.
I cannot understand what is going wrong. I have already downloaded and
installed the latest version of the Windows Update agent from here (x86):
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=91237
but in vain.
Please help.

You can try re-registering some windows update componentes.

Go to: START --> RUN --> regsvr32 dispex.dll <hit enter>

If WU continues to freeze though, try the same above procedure by
re-registering components below:
regsvr32 msscript.ocx
regsvr32 vbscript.dll
regsvr32 scrrun.dll

You can try re-registering windows update componentes.

For a start go to:
START --> RUN --> regsvr32 dispex.dll <hit enter>

If WU continues to freeze, try the same above procedure to re-register other
WU components below:
regsvr32 msscript.ocx
regsvr32 vbscript.dll
regsvr32 scrrun.dll
