    New notebook on Vista Business. T7500 CPU, 4 gigs RAM, 160gig HDD. It will
    not download any updates which I need to do so I can install Service Pack 1
    as a result of Update error 8024402C. I have a Microsoft Service Pack 1 on
    DVD - DVD was given to me by Microsoft.

    I have followed Help suggestions:
    Notebook has Internet Access
    I have disbale Virus Protection and tried updates still failed
    It is on a Peer to Peer network - no server

    The only advice I followed from Help was to check option in LAN settings,
    under Automatic Configuration, to "Automatically detect settings."

    Rebooted many times - tried over and over - everything failed. I have spend
    6 hours + installing Office, Photoshop Elements, installing 5 printers on it
    setup Outlook and imported .pst. I really don't want to do a new setup. Is
    there anyway I can sort out this error and downloads updates without having
    to wipe the harddrive clean an do a new OS installation.

    Assistance will be so much appreciated. Please help.
