Regarding the : Security Update for Windows XP (KB921883), as described in the, Important Announcement

I have a some questions;

Updates were loaded by MS overnight, this update was not one of them.

I have a little yellow shield in my notification window presently, I can not click on it to get any details as to what it may be.
When I pass the curser over it I do get the; Downloading update: 10%, . . if this is the same shield that was there yesterday, than overnight it went from 9% to 10%, . . .
yet, I am seeing two updates installed on 10/28/08, if one or both of these were loaded overnight,
as indicated by message that my computer was re-started as when I opened the desk top this morning, whereby it came out of, what seemed like a standby mode then went into the welcome screen as if had just then restarted, (which is another question), but if the previous downloads were successful, then where is my Security Update for Windows XP (KB921883) ?

I have located the update information via Firefox; Security Update for Windows XP (KB921883)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

and would like to know is there an alternative to D/L via I.E. since I have a problem getting I.E. to respond to any attempts at reaching the MS Update sight, which possibly be caused by the following circumstance as posted in BC yesterday ;

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176782/server-did-not-specify-content-length/

Server did not specify content length, .Net Framework Version required V.2 or greater

An application failed to D/L .Net Framework Version upgrade from MS,
apparently because the Server did not specify content length.

Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this ?

I recently installed Firefox and re-installed my OS, I am sure it
needs updates but I would like to proceed, I have been having
problems updating.
