Hi. I have Windows XP Pro and have updated it in the past. I went to the windows update site and found new update. After selecting to download them, I accepted the security warnings.

Now I get a screen popup thats says 'Preparing to Download' but the download never begins. Can anyone please help?


Thanks:confused:

See if this helps:

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!

Nope this didn't fix the problem. I can see the updates and I can add the updates. As soon as I try to download them, they will not start downloading, the progress stays at zero.
