Sp3 won't download
Hi, I am having trouble trying to download Sp3. I click on the download from
windows update site and it says " Downloading and installing". Nothing
happens, no green strokes appear at the bottom of the box to show its
downloading. I have tried it twice, waiting 2 hrs each time.

Why wont it download? Any ideas please.

More information required -

How to view the Update log in Windows:-

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type: %windir%\windowsupdate.log

Scroll down towards the bottom for the latest entries to locate the error code(s)
associated with the latest failed attempt to download/install. If appropriate copy and
paste the error codes into this thread so someone may be able to assist you. On the other
hand, you may be able to find the error code and other suggestions by searching the
