I suffered similar problems, try this to work around the problem;

Go to Windows-update.

From the left hand menu select 'Personalize Windows Update'.

Select 'Display Link to Windows Update Cataloge'.

Select 'Windows Update Cataloge'.

Select 'Find updates for Microsoft Windows operating systems'

Select your operating system from the menu, search.

Choose your 'critical' or 'recommended' or 'driver' updates.

Select your required updates.

Save the downloads to a folder and run them at your leisure...

Hope this helps...

Wrong link... you need to select 'Windows Update Catalog'... then the other steps.

Downlaoding Updates

I too was having problems, found this on an earlier post, tried it and it works ok now:

Add the following to your "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts" file:

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
