Updates won't download
Win XP Pro x64
SP2 Version 2003

I have recently updated to XP Pro x64 and have been trying to get all the
high priority updates. Auto updates is on, but has been sitting at 0% for
three days. I have DL'd my 64 bit network drivers and added the following
udates pages to my trusted sites list:

http://*.update.microsoft.com
http://update.microsoft.com
https://*.update.microsoft.com
https://download.windowsupdate.com
https://update.microsoft.com

This is all the info I currently have. If any additional info is needed
please just ask and how I need to find it. Thanks.

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new Windows XP
installation or you repair a Windows XP installation

sorry bad choice of words, installed. I followed the directions, twice, and
still nothing. If it makes any difference I'm deployed to Afghanistan. Would
that really mess it up? I know when I was in Korea I had no problems with
updates, but then again I'm new to x64, and have a heck of a time getting
driver for my laptop since sony doesn't support 64 bit drivers. other than
this it's running great.

Re: Updates won't Download
To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you include all of previous
message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Also: Do not edit the subject
in your replies either. Thank you.

Still confused here. What does "I have recently updated to XP Pro x64" mean
exactly? Possibilities include:

• You just got a new computer that came with WinXP Pro x64 preinstalled;
or...

• You just upgraded a computer that was running, e.g., WinXP (Home) to
WinXP Pro x64 SP2; or...

• You just got a new computer that came with, e.g., Vista Ultimate x64
preinstalled and you've attempted to downgrade to WinXP Pro x64 SP2.

Other questions:

• Right-click on My Computer | select Properties: What Windows version
is displayed on the resulting General tab (e.g., Windows XP Professional
Edition...Service Pack 2)?

• Start | Settings | Control Panel | Security Center: What status is
reported for (a) Automatic Updates; (b) Firewall; and (c) Anti-Virus?

• What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

PS: If you're in the armed forces and on a tour of duty in Afghanistan:
THANK YOU, GOD BLESS & HOPE YOU COME HOME SAFE & SOON!!
