    Does it give any errors when trying? I would suspect its just because the site is just so busy lately with SP2 etc, give it a try at different times ...have you tried going to the manufacturers web sites to see if they have updates .......

    You may have a partial download in there somewhere - possibly SP2. It's just a possibility that turning off Automatic Updates, rebooting and turning them on again might kickstart the process again.
