Cant Download Any Packs or Updates
Hi i just bought my new Pc System and i instaled windows xp 32bit home
edition sp1..
As i know there is the auto update instaler which i turned on,
The problem is that on the right corner on my screen at the bar there is the
icon about geting new updates that is stuck on 0% all the time, so as i see
it doesnt download or update anything.
I also tryied to dl the Service packs and updates throught the internet via
microsofts page but when i am about to update to Sp2 the bar that is supposed
to go green doesnt move at all and after about half an our i am still on SP1,
What am i supposed to do so i can update my software?
Also the update icon at the right corner at the quickbar is not Clickable..
Why is tat

YW. As you've discovered/learned, you cannot update via Windows Update or
Automatic Updates unless you have WinXP SP2 or SP3 installed.
