    Yes, indeed I've heard of it.
    Do you have any sort of ad-remover / popup ad killer
    utility, even Adshield?
    If yes, either add v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com on
    their exception list --- or insure that program is OFF.
    Same principal if you have an-over-eager firewall program.

    Turn those off either from Task Manager or by going thru
    the MSCONFIG Startup & Services (if any in win98) to
    temporarily disable said utilities.
    Then you can go to Windows Update site.

    Once you figure out how to "fine-tune" the utilities, you
    should have no problem reaching the full Windows Update
    site.
