microsoft updates website

I like to perform fresh installs of my xp, but  now microsoft updates no longer works even though it was working a couple of weeks ago, I keep automatic updates turned off, but every other month or so I check to see if there are any office updates. Firefox 52ESR is my default browser and I have sp3 and ie8 installed.

svchost.exe was taking 99% of cpu and I tried several fixes for this through other forum fixes, none worked

Here it is: Prior to running Windows Update, download and manually install the most recent Word and Excel related Security Updates for Compatibility Pack SP3.



It's going to work, but don't expect every participant of this topic to buy it. Also see:
