Hi!

I'm trying to download windows office updates. It says it will take about 83 minutes...I get to about 30 minutes left and I get disconnected from internet. I've tried about 3 times and the same thing happens.

Any ideas??

Thanks for any help!

Hi. Try ordering it on cd. click here for microsoft <_<

Also try going into properties of your network connection. It may be set to 30mins at a time.

I checked my connections...said it will hang up after 1 hour of idleness. (If it's downloading--are they considering the computer to be idle?) I did change it to 2 hours just in case. I see that Microsoft has a service pack 3 now???

When I bought my computer in March it was factory installed with Office Small Business Edition 2003...I think it was last week (or maybe 2 weeks ago) that I updated to the SP2 via CD.

Do I need to order the Office XP SP3 now when I ask for the CD to download?

When I checked for downloads in office, it showed that I need to download Office 2003 SP1...do I even need to do any update??

Thanks,
Garfluver
