    Since i've reinstalled ME I can't get the Critical updates to download
    because Microsoft thinks i've already (well i did but not THIS copy)
    downloaded them.
    Is there a way of "resetting" something so i can atleast get the Critical
    updates to download again?

    Solved my own problem;

    I took a file called WindowsUpdate.log from my last backup and used WordPad
    to read and copy to my browser the actual site Update uses.
    I downloaded the Critical Updates last night seems to work fine but more
    importantly the ME update shows up in the "Add/Remove" .
    Microsoft Update still doesn't work, but who cares ..... the manual way
    works and i can backup the actual files, so i don't have to bother to
    download them again. :)

    Hope this helps somebody else !
