I have not used the windows update for a long time, I have sat down to get the latest updates and after a 2 hours of click the damn button.

It still won’t get the updates, also the windows update globe has been missing for sometime; it doesn’t appear any more when windows start up,

Below is the message I get when u click windows update URL.

Is there any way of getting around this?

do you share an internet connection through anything like a router or are you running an internet security program?

I don’t have a home network installed, only my desktop. I do have Norton Internet Security running, but I have tried disabling it still no luck.

And on System properties this is selected

Notify me before downloading any updates and notify me again before installing them on my computer is selected

do you have SP1 installed?

Try this:

Go to 'Disk Cleanup' and click OK on your C drive> When 'Disk Cleanup' opens highlight 'Downloaded prog files' and click the view button>
in the folder that opens delete 'Update Class' and close the folder.

Next let 'Disk Cleanup' get rid of all your temp and temp internet files.

Try Windows update again.

I hope this helps :o)
