    Hey everyone. I need an answer to this as soon as possible because I can't download the 3 Critical Updates that I need and although I have a firewall, I hate not having Critical Updates on my computer as it leaves my computer open to security risks that can be repaired with the updates. Here's what happened. I first left my computer downloading the updates while I took a nap. I had selected more than just the critical updates though. When I came back, the middle frame that is supposed to tell you if your updates were successful or not said, "Page Not Available" or one of those other errors that you get when a webpage can't load. So, I tried downloading just the 3 critical updates and it wouldn't let me do it. At the time, I had Automatic Update running as well. I got the same error on the second try. So, I restarted my computer and have not tried it again but would like some advice just in case restarting doesn't fix it. Thanks in advance!

    Hey Dan! Thanks for the help but I figured out the problem. ZoneAlarm wasn't displaying notifications for new programs asking for permission to access the Internet for some reason and so it was automatically denying access to Windows Update installation. When I restarted the computer that fixed the problem but thanks anyway!
