i am facing problems with updating my laptop from the microsoft site. i could not able to see the catalog of updates. showing the error msg 8000...something. i downloaded the guided help from the microsoft site and still no use. i sent the report to microsoft and one of his representative assisted me with all available options in the site. despite of trying all, my problem is not solved. i am using my office wireless network containing a strong firewall. even microsoft website has the solution for the corporate network, proxy users, but still my problem is not solved. the interesting funny thing was, i could able to update from the lan connection (instead of wireless) from the same office network long back. also, at some of point of time long back, i could able to see the list of downloads necessary for my laptop, but when i tried installing them, i am getting error msg that the following updates are not installed. the representative of microsoft gave up by saying that could be the problem with ur firewall. i am using NOD32 antivirus right now in my computer, but tried with nortion, trendmicro, panda and kaspersky internet securities before (ofcourse all trial versions except NIS 2007). but still i didnt find solution. rest is woking fine in my laptop with some minor issues for which i got best solutions from this forum.
