Hiya people, is anyone else experiencing this?

It's been about a week now of constant trying, but I've not been able to connect to update.

Thanks guys and gals

However, it's not really what I'm looking for

I need my PC to autoupdate also, however it's not doing this either :(

Any ideas?

Just accessed microsoft.com and scanned for updates - no problem at all - did so aas well on my daughter's PC a few nights ago!!

What OS are you using? Is it one that is affected by the Blaster Worm, etc.? Have you updated your ant-virus software?

I have a feeling that with all the viri flying arounda the moment, it's going to be best practice to keep the 'puter updated.

Anyone else experiencing this?

MS are discontinuing support for 98, I've not been ale to get download on 98 for a while without getting error messages.

Surely they're not discontinuing support for this?!

click here for updates.


And YES, microsoftare NOT supporting 98 anymore, so no updates for 98.

I suspect for some os they won't issue any updates. I have no problem using windows update for W2k

I had a message saying thank you for your interest in windows update you must be using windows to use this system (os similar words) I found that Internet security was set to hide the operating system. Changed this setting and updates work as normal.

However this has made no difference :(

It's only since I 'contracted' Blaster that this has been happening, however I successfully removed it and updated my NAV definitions. I have also used Ad-aware to ensure no naughty software is resticting access...it found nothing.

This is doing my nut in, as all I want to do is visit the update site and choose some non-critical updates, as well as download all the critical stuff too.
