Off topic question

My new PC has XP professional and I just added service pack 1 for Internet Explorer so its version is now 6.0.2800.

My problem is that when I try to search the Microsoft Download site I get a response of "Sorry, we are unable to show you the page you have requested. Please try again later". I can select from the top downloads, featured downloads, and new downloads lists but the search refuses to return anything.

Does anybody out there using XP experience the same problem?

I am experiencing a lot of problems with XP lately. It even shuts off my computer while I am on the internet and then it re-boots me. There is alot of fixes for XP. They shouldn't have released it with getting ALL the bugs out of there.


For your question. No I haven't.

I dont know what it could be. But my XP works great. I have heard of people having problems, maybe there is a batch of good disks and a batch of bad ones!! Mine works great, but my dads gives him problems!! Weird!!

It's very strange. I have no trouble at all if I access the site from my old computer running Win95 and IE5. I contacted Gateway help via their interactive chat earlier today and the tech, resent the page to my PC. It worked and so I thought the problem had disappeared. However, when I closed the chat session, the site stopped working again. But I feel better since Rich has the problem also. Feels like an IE6 issue.

I have been wondering about the updates.

Are they something I should be paying attention to? I usually just close the update message without doing the update. Is that a bad idea?

Help someone who is faily clueless about this understand what it is all about.

I believe that the update for winxp now amounts to 180mb, and is therefore available on CD

I hold to the view of many Defence programmer friends....stay with the older versions for 3-4 years, and hence I'm happy with my Win 98. By about 2004 I'll look at XP!!!!
