Never been a reinstall here. The OS came pre-installed from Dell.

Tried both of your suggestions and neither works.

Only Windows.

I thought I had checked this before, but just to make sure, I went back and turned it off and tried the update again.

Same result. No update.

Other downloads seem to work fine.

The last recorded update is from last year. I've done some other downloads, identifying what I need with Microsoft's Baseline Security Analyzer.

Only the uploads feature for Windows does not work. (There may be other things, but I've not discovered them.)

I think it is not 2003, but 2002. How would I tell for sure? (Word & Works are in separate packs and there is no CD for Office.) Works label says it is 2002 and Word's About says it is also 2002.

there maybe a possibilty why your updates are not being install

Microsoft's Baseline Security Analyzer.


MBSA 2.0 detects products that are currently supported by Microsoft Update, the central catalog of updates for Microsoft products. Microsoft Update replaces Windows Update. Windows Update only updates Microsoft Windows operating system products. Microsoft Update hosts the detection logic for MBSA 2.0 and other tools.

MBSA 1.2.1 and the Enterprise Update Scan Tool (EST) support several products that Microsoft Update may not support when MBSA 2.0 is released. If Microsoft Update does not provide a security update, we will provide users of MBSA 2.0 a way to detect the update. For more information about how to obtain and use the Enterprise Update Scan Tool, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
894193 (http://support.micro....com/kb/894193/) How to obtain and use the Enterprise Update Scan Tool
The MBSA 1.2 tool will be discontinued on March 31, 2006. After this date, MBSA 1.2.1 will no longer be supported and the MSSecure.xml file that is automatically downloaded by MBSA 1.2 will no longer be updated to include new security bulletins. We encourage you to migrate to MBSA 2.0 before this date to guarantee continued security bulletin detection

its been monitoring your computer for you

I only am using MBSA because it was suggested the last time I tried to solve this problem. If there is a way to delete it and go back to "straight" updates, I would be happy to do that. Problem was (and presumably still is) that "straight" updates didn't/don't work!

I switched to commercial AVG in what I think was Feb, 2006. (I say that because my sub. runs out in Feb. 2008 and, I believe, I bought a two year sub.) This would be, I think, after I started to have the problem with Updates.

I found no list.

It is virus software, not firewall.
