A couple of things to try>

Windows Update - Error

If you cannot update XP check your c:\windows\windows update.log. If you have this error: Error 0x800C0008 then go to Tools\internet options\languages. You must have one language selected. Boom windows update works again!

Or for LAN settings

Go to control panel, open up Internet Options\Connections. Click on the Lan Settings button at the bottom right of the window. Untick Automatically detect settings.

Start / run / type in the box " services "

scroll down to Automatic Updates

this will need to be set to Automatic

if its not right click on it & choose properties

in the drop down box select Automatic

Apply
OK
