Not as far as i know.. just seems strange that i installed xp for a customer at work and the damn thing didnt want to update either.

I mean download them and save them ( SO I don't have to keep downloading them when I reformat cos I will soon lose my cable connection.) I don't wanna install them.

If you select them all you can save them in any folder you like in one easy download. but it makes alot of subfolders with all the updates in them

Try this, once you get to the windows update site, add an s to http so it is a secure site...https://

I had this same problem after a fresh install. Would scan system but would tell me know update for your system.

Good luck, hope it works.
