Well I just got the work computer I'm sitting in front of to check for updates and it went through fine... Wonder if your Provider is throttling updates to slow traffic down?<br><br>
You are using IE aren't you? When I use Opera at home I used to have a lot of trouble accessing M$ sites. (OOps I see you are)<br><br>
Funny thing is I tried once every 10 minutes or so for over an hour this morning and was no-go. Left it for an ½ hour and everything worked fine.
