it was only 2 hrs you have to be patient we aren't here 24/7, check out this site (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q259725), it seems to have a solution, however this could be a firewall issue, what firewall do u have?

Is your clock set correctly and your firewall configured properly. I dont know why but i have seen firewalls causing problems for windows update before. Does it repeatidly download the same patch and then display the error?

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q259725 is the fix for that error message.
