    Hi,
    When click on Windows Update in Start menu, it won't launch IE at all.
    Similarly, when click on Search in Start menu, it won't launch IE.
    Understand that Windows Update in Start menu execute this file wupdmgr.exe
    and tried running this file from command prompt or Run in Start
    menu...results still the same.
    Have reinstall the W2K serever OS via the Upgrade option from the W2K Server
    CD and repaired IE few times but failed to get it work.
    Help is needed!! Anyone has any ideas?
    Appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    David Wong

    Go to Windows Update via IE Tools>Windows Update.
