Pam, Thanks to you I tried the update link again. This time it told me I had to download a critical component---which I did. It was advpack.exe. I installed that, and have spent the last hour ,or so, installing security updates successfully. Thanks again.

I followed every troubleshooting link at MS site I could find to follow, did everything they suggested to do and nothing fixed the problem. After almost a whole day was shot I finally gave up. Then one day last week I decided to try battling it again but this time everything went without a hitch, no errors, no problems. I firmly believe now that it was a problem on MS's end all along. If you don't get a better answer then I would suggest simply trying back later to see if it works. Pam > > > I have tried a number of times to use Windows Update with no success.
