hi all, i had to reinstall xp home in my laptop, which went ok as i have done this many times on other machines, i put the new security on, Avast free & Superantispyware & updated the virus deff,s, all was ok, then i went on to microsoft's site to up date the OS, i have a simaler aged machine which i reinstalled the os on & there were 120 windows updates so i am thinking there's a lot for my laptop aswell. The problemb is after it asked me to install the genuin advantage tool, it stops there, when i click to check for updates it says " The web site has encounterd a problem and cannot display the page you want to view" then gives this error code 0x80070715. I have looked on microsofts site for a fix,,,, it told me to download a couple off fixes but they would not download,,,lol,,,, one of them was KB927891,,,,, any help i would appreciate ,,,, thanks Ian.

Give Dial-A-Fix a shot (free here: http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix#Standard_version ) - in particular the Windows Update stuff (and be sure to click on "Flush Software Distribution").

I'd suspect either a virus or an OS corruption could cause this.

Try a couple of free, online scans:
http://safety.live.com (requires IE)
http://housecall.trendmicro.com

Then maybe SFC.EXE /SCANNOW or a repair install of Windows

Wasn't sure - but bad hardware could also do this. At a minimum I'd suggest running a diagnostic on your hard drive (and maybe the RAM also).

Something just ain't quite right here! :thumbsup:

Are you installing from a genuine Microsoft CD, a restore CD, or a copy?
Is the disk scratched or dirty?
If we assume that there's nothing wrong with the disk - then it's gotta be a hardware issue (with the hard drive being the most likely suspect). I'd suggest a long test of the hard drive using the hard drive manufacturer's utility to be sure that you get a good test.
