Encarta 2004 updates

Has anyone else had trouble getting the February 2004 update for Encarta 2004 to download?

I've recently installed Encarta Premium Suite 2004. I then got it to update itself and all the updates downloaded okay until the last one, which stuck near the end of the download. I have tried rerunning it lots of times since, but it always stops before getting to the end, with the amount remaining varying between 12Kb and 20Kb each time. I've tried uninstalling Encarta and installing it again, but this hasn't helped.

Has anyone had a similar problem?

Anyone had this problem, or does anyone know a way to manually download the updates?

I have only had this problem once but in my case it was caused by my firewall,if your on broadband turn your firewall off while you download the updates.

Yes! That did it. I thought I had already tried that ages ago. Evidently not. Thank you!

Thats odd, I also have Encarta and have just updated it with Zone Alarm installed,no problem at all.

My Firewall is Norton, so perhaps it's something peculiar to that.
