I am on Windows 98, and when I go to Windows update for a critical update (which I get told I need) I go through all the procedure, everything fine, till I click `download` the message comes up please wait getting ready to download. download time 35 mins. Then it just gets stuck (frozen)

If you are using the icon in the start menu to access the update site this does happen, try using your browser instead. There is a link in your favourites menu under 'Favourites, Links, Windows update. I found that to be the best way to access the updates, so, hopefully, it will work for you also.

this also happens if crypographic services is set to manual or disabled.

check in controlpanel/administrativetools/services and scroll to cryptographic services,double click it an choose automatic as the start up type then click ok and restart.then try the update.
