Everytime I go to http://www.windowsupdate.com I get this error message. Does anybody have any idea how to fix this? I really need to update my PC.

If you set it for automatic updates does it go there and run them.

Have you adjusted any settings in services

Click start then run then type services.msc then press enter, is the background intelligents transfer service, BITS, enabled
