Is MS Update server down?

  Countrymanuk 20:57 24 Feb 03

Hi, just finished a repair of XP with a hope to combat the "infinate loop error" and am in desperate need of SP1 and other updates. Trouble is, im told to check back later as no updates are available. Would someone mind checking to see if the site is down? Got big probs if it isn't.

Thx, i'm not sure if you thought i meant the website, are you able to attempt an Windows update?

I was hoping someone could confirm that Win Update is definately working properly. Earlier on i had well over 30Mb of critical patches to download.One of which happened to be a patch for the XP "The system has recovered from a serious error" message on re-boot. I was told by tech support that a repair of the system wipes the sevice pack so needs to be downloaded again. In add/remove prog, the sp1 is there, although no size of file is given. Should i download the file from the website instead?

Sorry JoeC, thanks for checking. Hmmm, i got a situation i think.

I've just had an email from someone saying they had the same reponse as me. Strange it's working for some and not for others, but then i suppose there's no such thing as strange when it comes to pc's!! lol!

I'll check update later, just hope it doesn't catch something nasty meanwhile. :)
