My computer won't let me get the three updates i need... help me?
When I turn my computer on a pop-up bubble comes up that says I have updates
that need to be installed. If i wait a few minutes for my computer to
automatically install the updates, it will say it can't check for updates "at
this time" and to try later. Is something wrong with my computer, or is it my
internet settings? I tried everything. My internet has a strong connection
24/7 and I don't know what else to do.

Thanks for any help I can get!

Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup.

Absent any serious numerical Errors in your windowsupdate.log (cf.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902093), you may be seeing a delay caused by
excessive demand on the servers ("Update is not allowed to download due to
regulation"). It can take up to 7 days or more (sometimes much more) for
all Automatic Update users to get new updates when so many have been
released on the second Tuesday of a given month. See
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910340

You can try downloading/installing the updates via Windows/Microsoft Update
(WinXP) or running Windows Update manually (Vista) instead: Understand that
by doing so, you're pushing all the Automatic Updates users further back in
the queue (which may explain, at least in part, why Automatic Updates hasn't
brought them in for you yet).
