    Whenever I go to the windows update site, it won't work ever since it upgraded to v5.

    What's the deal? Just says:

    A long time ago I had a problem with Windows Update and for some reason it was actually solved by setting the language from default to 'English (United States) [en-us]'. For whatever reason, it fixed it.

    Tools >> Internet Options >> Languages

    Is this keeping you from manually downloading SP2 directly from microsoft.com?

    Check the contents of this file:

    c:\windows\Windows Update.log

    and see if there are any helpful error messages. Replace windows with winnt if that is how your system is setup.
