Cannot apply patch update root certificates for XP

I am trying to add the August 2013 Root certificate patch from Microsoft.
I have tried 2 PCs now and neither of them can get past the validation stage.
It just comes up with server time out?

Can anyone help?

There's a known issue at the moment with Windows Genuine Advantage that MS are investigating.  You'll just need to try it again at some point and wait for it to be fixed.

Totally Correct, it fixed itself after a couple of days.
