ok problem solved and this is how in case anyone else is having probs

1. Click on the following link to download a file called MCREPAIR.EXE:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/msninvestor/patch/1.0/win98/en-us/mcrepair.exe

Please save this file to your Desktop.

2. Open Windows Explorer.
3. Create a temporary backup directory called C:\Backup.
4. Now navigate to the C:\Windows\System directory.
5. Copy these files to the C:\Backup directory:

Asycfilt.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Olepro32.dll
Stdole2.tlb


6. Verify that copies of these files are in the C:\Backup folder.
7. Return to your Desktop and double-click on the file MCREPAIR.EXE.
8. Click Yes to any messages that appear. Once the process is complete, you will be prompted to reboot your PC.
9. After your system boots, try the Windows Update site again and if the download still hangs and/or you encounter problems with other applications on your PC then you can use the following steps to restore your original files:

1.  Open Windows Explorer.
2.  Navigate to the C:\Backup folder.
3.  Copy the four files to this folder:

C:\Windows\System

4.  Click the "Yes To All" button when the popup message appears asking if you want to overwrite the existing files.
5.  Now re-boot your PC.
