I dont know if i understand you,, but windows updates for win98 are no longer supported by Microsoft.


try this:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/corporate.asp

donwload the updates manually. since win98 is no longer supported by MS.

You most likely have a timing problem with IE here. Currently while 98 is no longer supported by MS it still has existing updates available and they are down loadable through the Windows Update service well as of yesterday 21-12-05 they where from AU at least as I just had a reload and update to perform on an old 98SE unit.

You can also download the patches/updated manually from MS at the above mentioned site but if you do it that way you'll pick up a lot of unnecessary patches that may not be required for that particular system but the Windows Update Site is still working for 98 at the moment although there are no new patches available to plug holes in Windows or IE really running 98 you are on borrowed time as there are a lot of vulnerabilities currently there that are not being attended to the hole in IE is a god example of this at the moment so that computer will be open to attack once it is back on line.

What version of IE are you running? If not 6, download and install version 6.
