Just installed windows 2000, when I try to update I keep getting "Error 403: Access Denied/Forbidden". I have tried everything on the microsoft support pages but to no avail!

a shot in the dark -
Are you logged in as an Admin on your box?

Well this is for IE 5.01 but you can give it a shot:

Also go to start  |  run  and type   gpedit.msc
and check under  computer configuration |  admin templates  |windows components  |  Internet explorer

Check to see that software updates are not disabled

How do you connect to the internet?  If you are using a third party TCP/IP protocal it must be compatible with the Wsock32.dll.  Check your TCP/IP setting in your network connections.  Just a thought.  If you are connected through a cable modem with the wrong TCP/IP Settings access will be denied until the protocols are compatible.
Just a thought   "zipper"
