    Hi,
    Try going to C:/Windows/Hosts, search for and deleting
    a248.e.akamai.net or should you have Spyblocker go via 'Setup/Find/
    a248.e.akamai.net/Unblock checked/Save/OK' and then retry Windows Update. WU
    has taken over the akamai IP address which in many Host sites and Spyblocker
    is a blocked address, consequently Windows Update has itself become blocked.
    Good Luck,
    Reg
