Hi, in case you haven't been able to resolve this problem, I had the same error and found that I hadn't applied the registry edits in Install.cmd (from an all-in-one Windows Update fix zip file): reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Test /v AllowAnySSL /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f > NUL reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Test /v WuRedirTestEnable /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f > NUL reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Test /v WuRedirOverride1 /t REG_SZ /d http://ds.download.windowsupdate.com/v11/2/windowsupdate/redir/v6-win7sp1-wuredir.cab /f > NUL reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Test /v WuRedirOverride2 /t REG_SZ /d http://download.microsoft.com/v11/2/windowsupdate/redir/v6-win7sp1-wuredir.cab /f > NUL reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Test /v WuRedirOverride3 /t REG_SZ /d http://fe2.update.microsoft.com/v11/2/windowsupdate/redir/v6-win7sp1-wuredir.cab /f > NUL reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v SecureProtocols /t REG_DWORD /d 0xA8 /f > NUL Once I had added these the problem went away.

I really appreciate all the work that has gone into keeping Windows XP a viable operating system. Thank you AstroSkipper for putting all the information together to get the updates system working again and presenting ProxHTTPSProxy in a complete form (PopMenu). I've been given a small ASUS Eee PC 901 laptop to sort out (Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB SSD, 8GB SSD). With the information from these forums I have been able to carry out a clean installation of Windows XP Home with all available updates (not POS as the storage is very limited). By copying tasklist32.exe from an XP Pro system to C:\Windows\System32 I was also able to get PopMenu working under XP Home and have installed ArcticFoxie's version of 360 Chrome which seems to work pretty well considering the hardware it is running on! With this combination it is possible to browse the web without constant security errors, even sites that use 'elliptic curve' SSL. It would be really great if there could be an option for auto starting the proxy in a later release of PopMenu. I have been able to simulate this by making a 'minimised' shortcut to ProxHTTPSProxy.exe in the Startup folder on the Start menu. Thanks again for all your hard work. Matt.
