    Try again in a few hours (or tomorrow). I don't recall the exact error, but I get a message from time to time if the servers are too busy or my ISP is having a fit.

    ok my internet seemes to work fine now but now my windows update does not work again. It must of been something i did in the winxp tweaking guide. Are there any services that are required for windows update to run properly?

    nvm, i figured out what was wrong. The thing was that i chnaged the registry key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion

    and i changed the program files directory to a different partision while the windows update files were on the the other partision. So all i ha to do was copy and paste the windows upate folder into the other partision. Thanks for your help anyway
