    Surprised/Amazed

    hi...for some reason, i can not download any updates from microsoft...

    it gets to the page where it is scanning my system to see what updates are needed but that is as far as i get...it just sticks there

    i am running sp1 cos i can't get to download sp2

    any ideas?

    cheers, 3lions

    1.make sure the background intellegince transfer service, automatic updates, event logger, and cryptographic services are all running in services.msc.

    2. make sure the windows date and time are set to the right things.

    3. i've had problems with windows update when "automatically detect proxy settings" is disabled...click tools>internet options>connections>'lan settings'>and make sure that automatically discover proxy settings is unticked.

    the proxy thing might be a problem. i've had this issue before, i highly recommend u clear ur cache every week or so. rite now, i use maxthon, and i just set it to clear every time i exit. if u don't use a special browser, u can go to internet options, advanced, and there's a checkbox in there to clear cache on exit
