    I've just made a test pc :
    Intel P4
    512mb ddram
    windows xp Pro SP2
    I've got it networked via a simple hub to server running WinXP Pro SP1.
    The client PC connects to the internet no probs and if I do a manual Windows update, it lists all security updates etc. The problem is that it can't download them (they all come up FAILED) with a message that I havn't accepted a EULA. It tells me to download again and to accept the EULA when it appears. But it does NOT appear.
    Any Help?
    Thanx

    Flush out cache, cookies in IE - Reset your web settings, and in Active X controls uninstall Windows Update, and Windows Validation Check. Start the process over.

    If this fails, check to make sure you've installed a valid version of XP (is your product key kosher?)

    If all fails, you can download post SP2 security updates directly from MS

    Ok, I did what you said and I DID get a eula up and accepted. But it still fails on download.
    It IS a legit copy.

    Try to find and delete the Windows Update BHO with Hijack This, restart Internet Explorer, and see if it works.
