Problem getting Windows updates

I just obtained an IBM Thinkpad 600 that has Windows XP Pro installed. It
has XP1, but when I went to Windows update to try to get XP2 update (and any
others needed) ran into a problem. It spends a few minutes and then says:
"The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are
trying to view, Options below might help you to solve the problem." And it
shows error 0 X 80072EE2.
I tried the options shown with no help.

Another problem is no sound, something wrong with Crystal WDM audio codec,
says it won't start, or run. Gives error 10 on this.

I have Windows Me on my regular computer and am pretty familiar with it, but
not with XP. Will appreciate any help.
Thanks, Malcolm

I forgot to mention, I ran the Microsoft validation program, and it showed
that the XP came installed on the computer, or some words to that effect. So
it is not a bootleg version as far as I can determine.

I've seen REAL Firewall appliances that do HTTP session filtering for
download blocking cause that exact type of problem. Are you behind a
firewall that does HTTP session filtering?

You might want to check this site out - it has a number of options
directly related to your error:

Thanks, Leythos, As far as I can tell so far (just got the laptop today) it
doesn't have a seperate firewall, but evidently one is included in XP, as
the dialup (Bellsouth.net) connection on the control panel shows
"firewalled"

If you look, your reply is not being posted properly as it's not
removing the sig file in the post you are replying to - which means that
you reply is below the posters -- line, so your reply will be snipped
out when someone replies to you.

It shows that you are using Outlook Express:
X-Newsreader: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1478

There are updates on the Microsoft site to fix that.

You could also download and install Super Gravity Usenet client and not
have to use a hacked email client for Usenet access any more :)

Excuse the top posting, as you said my reply might get snipped. I am doing
this on my regular computer which has Windows Me, and IE6 and OE6. I will
try the Super Gravity Usenet you mentioned. (As you may have guessed, I'm
not very computer savvy).

You can get Super Gravity from the owner at the above site. It's not a
newer program and it's not great for downloading video/picture files
from Binary groups, but it's the best Usenet reader I've used in more
than 20 years, at least it is to me :)

I finally managed to get the SP2 through Windows update. Thanks to all for
replies.
