My windows 2000 advance server will not allow me to install microsoft updates, it says that because it is not the domain controller I am not allowed to download from the microsoft update site.  I do however have the windows icon displayed next to the clock telling me to install updates but when i click on it the icon vanishes.  I think updates are downloaded is there another way I can get to them, are they staored somewhere?

The windows icon next to the system clock if I put the cursor over it it says updates ready to install and tells me to click on it, when I click on it, it vanishes and nothing happens

if that is the case please go to MS website and download all the service packs for 2000 and install manually...it should be fine.
