So, if you can get online, what's the problem? To get updates, in IE click tools>windows update.

 

It should scan your pc. Download all the service packs and critical updates.

 

If that doesn't work, should be able to find them HERE

I'm having a bit of a problem understanding here. So you can, or can't get online?

 

If not, what kind of errors are you getting? And what kind of connection? DSL,Cable?

My bad, sorry about that. If I connect straight to the internet I still have problems from my cable internet modem. When I connect to my router I still get them. I can get on line eather method I use. I keep getting script errors and says This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

Ok. Lets try this. Open IE and click tools>internet options>advanced. Scrool down and disable script debugging.

 

Reboot and see if this helps.

Alow me to clearthis up a little bit sorry for the lack of info. This computer is old and going to be used ofr a back up/get on line check email computer nothing much more. So I installed windows 98 the OS that belongs on it as it is to old for newer OS's do to it's slowness. How ever that is fine with me as I said it is also a back up if need be for what ever purpusses. With that said I have not added any new progies or updates as I can not doing do to the issues as I stated prier at hand. Hope that helps a little. Also I connect to the internet through a D Link eathernet card not on boar or usb.
