Hello,

For now you can download updates from Here until your problem is solved.

If you are after updating to service pack 3 try This.

You'll be better off trying to update using IE as windows update uses ActiveX.

Yes, nothing seems to work
Funny thing is the web address is correct in the browser, but it shows google.com on the screen
