Re: Cannot get updates from MS site
[In for a penny...]

Crosspost to Windows Update.

You receive a "Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display
the requested page" error message when you try to install an update:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883614

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

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on any of
the computers (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you
bought it)?

How do I reset Windows Update components?
[Access KB971058 via Internet Explorer (32-bit) only; Run the Fix It in
DEFAULT and AGGRESSIVE modes, then reboot]
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

PS: Are you Norma Zimmer?

YES! That was the fix.
KB979906 & KB979909 updates just wouldn't work.
I went through all the various fixes (dotnet cleanup and reinstalls,
add/remove
programs and reinstalls) and they still failed.
So I tried the above Fix It and on reboot and update one more time they took.

No Joy has just turned to Much Joy.
I suggest others maybe give this Fix It a chance and see what happens.
It can't hurt.

"In 1959, Welk's previous Champagne Lady Alice Lon was fired, his reasoning
being that she exposed too much knee on camera. [HORRORS!] Because of
protests, Welk then tried (and failed) to get Alice Lon back. After a year
of the show's trying out several different singers, [Norma] Zimmer
officially joined the Welk show as his Champagne Lady on New Year's Eve,
1960."

Can you imagine Lady Gaga as the Champagne Lady?!
