i can't select any language because it says download first.

as soon as i press search for updates it comes up with this message- error retrieving update into file socket error 10061 connection refused

Have you follwed bretsky's link? I was the guy that found it was the firewall setting that was too high.

Alright you may be usding a different firewall but t I think the same primciple would apply.
