If you have already followed this and it doesn't work, check and double-check your Registry edits.
I notice on the above page Microsoft says "increasing your maximum simultaneous downloads to more than 2 is a violation of Internet standards"
This from a company who has driven a bulldozer through more internet standards than anyone! - lol
You could try the Firefox web-browser instead. not only does it not require risky registry edits to increase simultaneous downloads, but it's a safer browser also (mainly on account of it not using ActiveX technology which is required on the Windows Update website).
Get Firefox here: http://www/firefox.com
How to increase it's simultaneous downloads to more than two: http://lunarmedia.co...s-multiple.aspx
Be aware though that you should take into consideration your available internet bandwidth which is directly related to the download speed you can achieve. trying to download several files at once would be counter-productive if you have limited bandwidth since they would all slow to a crawl, or one would hog all the bandwidth leaving little or none for the others. In that scenario you'd be better off leaving things as they are.
