Assuming Walmartconnent is your ISP, have you talked to them about your problem or checked their website for information about the error message? Does this just happen with MS updates, or do you get this message when you attempt to download a file elsewhere?

What is your antivirus? I run Panda Titanium, and learned (eventually) that a bug was keeping MS from updating. There is a patch at the home site.

Are you using Internet Explorer to download updates or a proprietary Walmart browser?

It can't hurt to make sure that your BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) is running. If this is disabled, Win Update will not run properly.
Click START; Click RUN; type SERVICES.MSC; hit ENTER; on the list that pops up search down (won't be far, four or five lines) for BACKGROUND INTELL... or some such abbreviation. Look across to see if the service is running. If it is, right click on the line; a pair of links will show in your sidebar. Click STOP, then click RESTART.

If it is off, click RESTART.

Close.

Kind of a long shot, but it is one more thing to eleminate.

If you are running Windows XP you may have to authenticate to do Microsoft Updates manually.

Try this -
Once you are on the internet click start/windows update

Windows Update download does not start in Windows 98
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-u...pid=1139&sid=92

Is that the support page you tried?

What version of IE is installed on your computer?
