Thread: Windows Update

  1. #1
    I can't get windows update to download, it just sits there. I think it may be because the EULA dosent pop up, but i dont know why its not.

    if you are using a firewall (and you should be ).....
    try disabling it to connect to windows update
    thats what i have had to lately, dont ask why, cause i dont know
    i never had to do that before, and i am still using the same firewall,
    with the same security settings, but now windows update wont let me on with the f/w running

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    You might consider trying this...

    Go to Start>Run and enter services.msc.
    Check and see that "Cryptographic Services" is enabled and started.

    Windows Update needs this process in order to work.

    could try checking to make sure the time is set to the right date...

    i once had the time on my old computer set to 2001 instead of 2003 (this was last year) so that I could get unlimited updates for the antivirus program I was using (cant remember which one right now).

    edit: forgot to say, and this caused windows update to not download any updates.
