This computer has recently been restored. When I go to automatic updates and click on windows update website, then I click either express or custom update, it scans for updates, then I get an error message saying "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem." [Error number: 0x80244019]

✔ Best Answer
The same requirements for Windows 2000 apply to Windows XP. Your Update Agent is probably outdated:

I should also point out that the updated root certificates are also required for Windows Update to run under Windows 2000. Available here: (also can Google for rootsupd_a153023b66d29034420aa227ccc2164cff75229e.exe if the link ever goes down.)

Also update your browser to Internet Explorer 8 for the best results. Alternate
