Windows Update Fix for Win9x/ME 1.21

Windows Update Fix for Win9x/ME - An utility to fix the problem of accessing Windows Update properly when using Windows 9x/Me
Just recently, users of Windows 98 and Windows ME discovered they couldn't access the Windows Update website properly. The most common message was:

"Thank you for your interest in obtaining updates from our site. This website is designed to work with Microsoft Windows operating systems only. To find updates for Microsoft products that are designed for Macintosh operating systems, please visit"

The Windows Update Fix for Win9x/ME will fix this problem. It re-installs the files needed for Windows Update to work, and also installs the recently released root certificate updates which seems to be the cause of the problem.

While it has only been primarily tested to work using a Win98SE (English) machine, this fix should work for the entire Win9x/ME family, including localizations in other languages. Windows Update Fix for Win9x/ME has already been confirmed to work on the Italian and Dutch editions of Win98SE.
