MS updates ?

  Ikelos 10:15 28 Nov 2005

hi, I am trying to download the MS updates, i tried yesterday and to-day, i go to the MS site, and click on the "check for updates" the status bar just keeps going and never gets anywhere. i have just left in on for half an hour, I have XP and sp1..any ideas.......thanks

If you only have SP1 installed, then you have a lot of updates (including SP2) to get, Ikelos. Try leaving it longer in order to find which updates you need. Hope you're not on dialup.

ms update page is running very slow and the update page running slow for the last few days.
I tend to just leave it running and it gets there after a bit of a wait.

Thanks,left it on for an hour then got an error message, so disabled the firewall and going to try again, the error was 0X80072EFD.
