Hi Robear
Thanks for your input!
Tried troubleshooter for "downloading doesnt start"
1) re registered dll's as requested.(msscripted.ocx failed as file doesnt
exist on h/d or cd)
2) reassociated .js with wscript.exe as suggested
3) re installed ie5.5
4) re installed win98 se
all of the above did not solve problem
Have you any other suggestions i can try
Thanks for your help
Aubrey

1. (Re)Install 5.6 Scripting Engine:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0A8A18F6-249C-4A72-BFCF-FC6AF26DC390&displaylang=en)

2. Confirm that you're using IE to go to Windows Update.

3. Try disabling your firewall. (Be Careful!)

4. See "Download hangs. The Windows Update - Web Page Dialog window appears
but download never starts (Windows 98)" at
