it is possible the program that automaticly updates windows was delted, also if you are not runnig a legal addition of windows it also wont work. also you need to be running IE inorder to do windows updates.

If this is enabled, then maybe there aren't any critical updates needed.

mile runner, thanks for replying, i have a legal copy and the auto updates is turned on via the control panel. i have both IE and Firefox but use firefox, would this matter?

james 8970, thanks for replying, i have already done that but its still not working.

CJIS, thanks also for replying, i thought this but when i put a cd in (to put stuff on my phone) it did not work as it said "setup needs at least SP1 on the target machine to run" but i have that :S
