I did all the above. When I click on the site to update, the site freezes up still, and I get the message "site not responding".

Alrighty, let's give Dial-a-fix a try...

Before we make any changes, please create a system restore point by going to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Create a restore point for today. Call it "dial-a-fix"

Next, download Dial-a-fix from http://fileforum.bet...ll/1131569373/2

When you download it, double-click on it to extract all of its files. Then open the folder it creates. Double-click on the file called Dial-a-fix.

In the upper-right corner, check the box next to Fix Windows Update. This will automatically check other boxes too. Leave them checked! Now click on GO at the bottom-left corner. When it is done fixing, restart your computer and try to update windows again.
