After fresh install, went to MS to update. Got the 1st critical update. Then due to probs had to reset cmos. Fixed. went about my biz and got back to MS update - ERROR message (0x800c008) about time and date ect. So made sure those were fixed. Still no go?

Googled and tried the trouble shooter. said I needed to run some stuff on my certifications. Most came OK. Probelms (error code 0x00000485) on the following:

What must I do to clear this up and get my d/l's?
btw, somewhere along the line I had to d/l MDAC 2.5 (actually MS installed a higher version)

Heres a little tip I've learned with Win98 and 98SE at the Windows Update site, after the updates are downloaded and installed, the website needs to restart your machine for the updates to take affect, do not give the website permission to restart your machine, close the program and the website yourself, make sure you have no running programs, and restart the machine yourself, and it won't have any problems at all, don't ask me why because I don't know the answer, I just know that it works.
