    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft.

    I understand that you are having difficulty downloading Updates from
    Windows Update Site for Windows ME. I realize the importance of your issue
    and look forward to providing you with information today.

    The Windows Update Corporate Web has retired. Customers must be running
    Windows XP or Windows 2000 to access the new Windows Update site. This site
    will support Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me) and Windows 98 in the
    future.

    Michael, in the mean time, we have alternate locations for you to obtain
    updates for Windows ME and you may access this link at:
