windows updates not working on server 2003 r2 service pack 2

I am trying to do updates on several win 2003 r2 servers with svc pack 2 and when i do, it continually will reload the same page over and over.  I have tried the language switch recommended in threads i have read, but it does not work.  I tried turning off the new version of updates and went back to the old version, but now i am getting the error that it thinks BITS, automatic updating and event log services are not running.  I could use some help if someone can please!

found my issue.  I had to rename the folder c:\softwaredistribution and let updates recreate it.  Works fine now.
