    That works thanks! What did I do wrong?

    Oh wait... the page opens but it won't let me click anything...
    Right, that has confirmed it is a javascript issue.

    Click "Start", type "cmd", right-click cmd.exe, select run as administrator press Enter. In command prompt type: regsvr32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\jscript.dll

    Try that, the bold bit should fix error 80004005

    If the above doesn't fix the issue, try this:

    In internet explorer:
    On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Security tab.
    Click the Internet zone.
    a. Click Custom Level.
    b. In the Security Settings – Internet Zone dialog box, click Enable for Active Scripting in the Scripting section (near the bottom).
    Click ok on all boxes, and refresh.

    Tried that, didn't work...

    The only thing which does solve it is when I restore the computer to an earlier date before the updates happened and when it was working fine. When I did that, everything worked normally. Today, it's gone back to normal...

    From everything you've said it sounds like you're using Internet Explorer, and since it was an update that caused the problem it could have been an update to Internet Explorer.

    Now that you have restored to an earlier point, download another browser (Firefox or Chrome). Those browsers are generally more stable. If you install one and then update again and the problem happens again then that's more troublesome. Hopefully changing browsers will be solution enough.
