    see this is an old, old problem dating back to 2005. I'm not quite sure why you are trying to load this, but a quick check shows me that emachines W3052 also date from around then or a little later, so I suspect you may be updating a busniess machine that was released for private use, and has never had any updates since new.

    That being the case, the link above will probably see you fine. If not, stay in touch and we will keep trying. Also, I would suggest you should download and install Internet explorer 7 or better still, some alternative such as (used by me and highly recommended) Avant browser or Mozilla firefox.
