Click validate windows
It validates successfuly, and the option to download isn't there
The cycle repeats when I go back and click download again!!
I've ran the diagnostics - passes - still can't download a thing!!
HELP ME PLEASE - I'm going insane!!
try this Genuine Microsoft Software
............ This is to test if windows/IE are configured properly to allow validation. Once you get all green checks click the "validate windows" button. If validated, try downloading the updates again???
