    I would disable Norton - do your update and then start your Norton again
    When did this start happening, did it work before.
    Have you checked out MS for that Error code??
    Here's the link for explanation of error if you haven;'t already been there

    Update working now.
    Tried all what was suggested still did not work.
    Found network adapter tcp/ipv4 was set to use DNS server address...
    Selected to obtain automatically.
    This may have occurred after I installed MSOffice XP Small Business edition 2002, with MicroSoft Outlook..

    Thank you for your help.
