Can't update critical update

By sidehill79 ·
What would keep me from being able to download the critical update for windows 98? The computer screen gets the message from Microsoft that it is checking my sytem and then when the critical update page comes up, I click the download button and I get nothing. I have had this trouble for about 2 months now, and would like to know what to check to get the download. I am not able to see my history of updates either, may be of the same proplem, could you give me any suggestions. Thanks Ed

Can't update critical update

I had a lot of trouble downloading from MS since mid December.

I resolved my problem by starting the download at 5AM US Eastern time.

Other options:
Check your security and cookie settings. You must allow cookies to get MS downloads.
Your security settings can not be set to high, or the downloads will be blocked.
Windows Updates use scripts and applets to generate the file list. So, these must be enabled also.
