If you have not got a <nett passport> sign in and get one, then you can get help from posting a thread on Microsoft Newgroup forum.


After you get your passport go to the following page and log in, then post your problem with the heading "Failed to get Microsoft Updates"


The news group has been a wonderful help to me, but you need to get professional help with this. I had the same problem and they were quick and most helpful.

Good luck -
