    But on my laptop I got an error message to check my local time/date
    setings as they appeared not to be correct. They are.

    Nevertheless Windows update would not automatically download install

    I have the same problem. My computer might be infected but NO antivirus finds anything.

  3. tom,

    The Windows Update site is extremely busy today . Advise you to get the
    updates for your laptop from :

    Microsoft Download Center

    Enter the KB number in the Keyword(s) window to find it.

    For the "time/date" error open the Windows Update.log found in the
    WINDOWS folder with Notepad . Scroll down to the bottom of the log for
    the most recent entries. Then go here and look for the error code you
    encountered in the log file :
    Look for the specific error code you encountered under the
    " Problem reaching Windows Update " heading. Try the suggested
    resolution(s). If it's 0x800C0008 have a look here, too :
